Blessed be thy Dave

Wow, just wow. Joeleee, Dub, Zippy and Lockie (i reject "Glovey" ;) stuff themselves in the scoob and head west coast minus Zombie who must have had a late night singing along to 'Message to my Girl'. Jan Juc is facing a mass exodus as we arrive but with memories of Saturday's fine performance we head down the cliffs and into a wall of white fury. It is just cray-zee trying to get out with so much water in each wave and so many huge sets. I have thankfully never been hit by a mack-truck or buffalo stampede but i reckon this goes close. After 15min of flailing and near drowning none of us has made it out the back and we admit defeat and ponder a move to Torquay surf beach. Good thing we make that move as Torquay is just magic, the rocks on the right give a nice paddle out and every few minutes there is a massive set that will let you ride all the way to the beach which we do again and again and again. The clean windless waves, the long rides, the setting sun that makes the spray off your board glow golden, the pleasant ache in your arms, the only people dropping in are your mates, the beautiful view at the takeoff spot.... best surf i've had in a long time, maybe ever. And if that isn't enough for one day we kiss nasty westside burgers goodnight and pile up plates at Ripper Roast in Geelong. Short on fuss/pretention, but big on tasty tasty roast dinners. Fingers and toes crossed for more next weekend.


PS Carn the socceroos tonight!

  • anonymous - from my readings of the ancient scriptures it is apparent to me that The Bogan Wave God Dave is nondiscriminatory. All are free to worship at his 'wavey' altars (ie beaches).

    Willing disciples would benefit from having a 4-3 wetsuit and boots however. Benevolent Dave may be, warm he is not.

    PS who are you?

  • Might as well face it, Lockie, you're addicted to gloves.

  • Hey Lockie,

    Sorry, I'm anonymous (Sam) but I'm too lazy to type out my complicated, top-secret, highly unpredictable, non-dictionary inhabiting password.

    And it still stands that I want your lifestyle. My bro is going surfing next week in Tofino (Canadian surf capital) in the dead of summer, with a 4mm and boots. Dedication.

  • Sam, we have a spare board at the moment, but from what we've seen they only rent 3-2 suits so would need to invest, but you're welcome on any trip we take once you're back.


    Pistol, i want to be called Fingers or something else at least, Glovey is odd...

    "ooo baby i glove your way, every day"
