Gary G commands his own orbit. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve felt it’s gravitational pull.

I’m not sure how many G’s i was pulling before I blacked out , but I woke up becalmed and serene, with a spring in my step like a great weight had been lifted.

Then there was also the small matter of the fresh hundred dollar bill in my pocket .....a bit of sugar on top of the cab fare home.

Now I know what all the fuss is about.

Ain't no greater force to expose yourself to than the one and only Gary G.
Except perhaps an on-duty member of the police force, depending on whether they're into that thing or not...

Gary had a great surf this morning. Arriving by cover of darkness, as is Gary's style, he found the surf larger than expected, and crowd waaaaaaay lower than expected.

Managed a blissful 90 mins in 4ft+ wedges that were getting steeper and cleaner by the minute as the tide drew out and the wind started to blow offshore. By the end of the surf it was pumping, with the crowd within Gary's radius peaking at a comfortable Menage a Trois.

Gary hasn't had so much fun in summer since they broadcast a Schwarzenegger movie marathon in the TV off season.

You and me, Gary, ain’t nothing but mammals so let’s do it* like they do it on the aerobics channel

Went for the dawn patrol this morning at the beach where I grew up (& was my local for 20 years before rising rents forced me inland). Only small - waist-high, with a very rare shoulder-high "bomb" - but glassy, beautiful shape, and not another person in sight. Sometimes the world doesn't seem so bad.

Classic arvo. Every vantage point on the coast showing deep lines brushed by a clean westerly. Surfed local, but not 'the local'. Feels like we've put that horrible summer to bed.

Woke up in an apartment on the point at your old local this morning and went for a predawn walk to check the joint out. Small but groomed . Definitely more swell up the Eloura end. Rolling beachies good for a mal or fish. Better for drinking coffee and watching insanely hot women in tights power walking on the esplanade.

Didn’t have a board with me. And it was fucking freezing.

Ditto. Hit a bank between North & South Curly. Got a few at dawn to keep me going.

No.

Put your hair in a top knot , go to Potato Head and stare out at sea looking bored and distracted till a young Mid Western Seppo back packer comes up and remarks how much the ocean controls the moods of surfers. Tell her that you’re a slave to the rhythms of Mother Nature. She’ll tell you how she’s drawn to it’s ever changing complexity in a way that the prairie plains never did. Stare into her eyes and dribble emotive garbage into each other’s ears till the bar shuts and the ceased flow of cocktails signals its time to go home and roll the STD dice.

Unless you like getting pitted.

Then Yes, go to Deserts . Park up and surf everyday there’s waves till you’ve got your shit so dialed that those amazing days that eventuate will be burnt into your brain for the rest of your life.
