Surf camp – oh yes. I did one lesson a few weeks back here in Sydney but the weekend 18th to 20th of august was full of it.
We were 10 danish and 2 norwegian and then 4 Aussie surfer instructors. They were a blast and made sure we had heaps of fun. All about the Shaka bro. 😉 (google Shaka if you don’t know what it is and you will get the feeling that it is very surfer Aussie slang. lol)
It was a weekend of very very very cold weather. It was windy, rainy and freezing. Nothing is holding me back from having a blast! I surfed – I actually did it again. I stood on the board and laughed. Saturday we had to drive a little to get to a good beach where the waves wasn’t too crazy. We stayed at Elizabeth beach and surfed at Crowdy head beach on Saturday. When we got back we had food and a good after surfing party!
Oh and a guy broke is surfboard in two! Well it was the wave but it was like watching a scary movie when it happened. Craziest thing I have seen in a while!
Sunday was even colder than Saturday. We went to Seal rocks to surf and had a barbecue for lunch before heading back to Sydney.
Not sure how I got in the water. I think it took me around 30 min to convince myself to put on my wetsuit. It had been outside in the trailer all night and was wet from the rain and on top of that it rained Sunday too. So putting on a wet wetsuit (yes I know how this sounds) in the rain and wind was a bit of a challenge. I did it and I do not regret for a second! The waves was good to begin with and we gave it a go. It was magical lying on the board in the rain.
I decided to put my surfboard on the beach at one point and go out in the waves and play around. They were too big for me. I was in a battle with the board a few times and got myself a good bruise – but it’s all part of the fun. Giving things a go! 🙂
It was such a great weekend and I am glad I went even though it was cold.
