South Australia Day - photos
The Swellnet BF Goodrich trip to South Australia had to turn to other activities when the crew were skunked for waves on Australia Day.
As you may remember, trip winners Ellis Nichol and Jordy Fowler joined Asher Pacey and Ry Craike for a surf trip west of Adelaide. Aside from surfing the other thing all four have in common is fishing so when the sun rose over a flat ocean the hooks were quickly baited and beach rods cast.
It wasn't long before the first fish was caught and roundly celebrated with cheers and a libation. Then the beach cricket bat came out, and after a few innings the tow board.
Locals joined the crew offering bounty from the sea and a BBQ at the high tide mark was fired up. Bellys were filled with flathead and lobster as the sun moved to the west forcing shelters to be erected.
As the last rays from the sun diffused into an iridescent twilight and eskies and rods packed away, the crew had one last chore to attend to: rescuing a pair of bikini-clad girls who'd locked their keys in the car.
All in all it was a satisfactory diversion on a day with no waves.
