The wave of the day does it for me big time. Nice work Steen Barnes , Shaun Anderson and Swellnet.
In one photo you've encompassed everything nice about surfing. If I was a wanker I'd say that it was perfect except for the fact he is in a wetsuit. Which it is , it's perfect .....except for the fact he's in a wetsuit.

Thanks Craig for photo add tips link. A few days late, but better late than never. I think every wave in the pacific looks the same no matter where it is.

Simple, eh?

Great shot of you at P'Pass. Though the WOTD wave looks similar it's 2,000kms away from Pohnpei.

Are you sure that’s Indo ?

Not sure.

Actually, I just assumed it is without giving it much thought.

Think it's set the theme for the rest of my Monday.

But...reasons! Yesterday, the inaugural Thirroul Music Festival was held and unbeknownst to me until very recently, my office was one of the venues. Cornrow the organiser neglected to tell me that till Friday. 

Seven bands were due to play in here all arvo, so kids amused, dog fed, I came down here to join in. First person I see is Cornrow who tells me I just missed an incredible band, Ester Poly, and all the references he cited were bands I dig. Old Rick Snowden was here, Swellnet's newest contributor, two of the bands on the bill are also on his record label. Beers are in order.

First band I see are a trio of middle-aged blokes giving voice to the angry teenager inside. Guitarist and vocalist singing through a veil of long hair, bass player channelling Ian Rilen, tatted and impassive, skull rings on his fingers stringing a menacing low end growl. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Through one window I can see the southerly turning the ocean surface into whitecaps, and through the other window the sun is streaming in and I get a clear view up to Kennedy's Hill AKA Millionaire's Row and hope that even though the town is changing the new residents appreciate impromptu and semi-illegal gatherings such as this.

Many more bands and beers to boot. I smokebombed around nine and shuffled home. Walked back down to work this morning dreading the state of the room, there were 50-60 people in here getting loose when I left, but Cornrow and Rick and whoever else returned it to normal, a plain, white-walled office and it's like last night didn't even happen.

Except for the hangover that is.

After all the negative feedback about a certain barreling lefthander in Victoria, Stu took it on board, reversed the image and captioned it as Indo.
And people still question the poor bastard.

Not only that, I also had to convince Soli Bailey to surf switchfoot so that when I reversed the image he was in his natural stance. He wasn't easily swayed but I got there.

And you pricks still question me!

Without:

a) Getting a call about copyright infringement from Gra and Bainy
b) Exhausting my cliche limit for the week

Because:

b) That's what Peter Jovic used as a filename.
