This is my good friend Chris Friend who won the Couran Cove Pro Junior earlier today. I ended up getting knocked out yesterday, so I got the ferry back to the Gold Coast. We had some really fun waves today. It was good to have some waves again, and the water is warm – it’s paradise here. There are going to be some waves here for the next few days so hopefully I can upload a surfing pic soon.
This is our spot on South Stradbroke island. It’s a pretty cool spot in the bush. The waves still haven’t got good enough for them to start the contest. They are probably going to start running tomorrow, the forecast looks good. I haven’t surfed a heat in ages so I’m exited to get back into it.
Arrived at South Straddie for the Couran Cove Island Resort Pro Junior (…”Couran Cove Island Resort is one of Australia’s leading ecotourism resorts, boasting a unique indigenous history and a genuine passion for the natural environment. Couran Cove Island Resort is an idyllic holiday destination which happens to have access to South Stradbroke Island’s pristine beach breaks on its doorstep…”) – this is sweet and all – but the SAFFA Rand she’s suffering – me and Duckster managed to maneuver the included breakfast into a “breakfast-lunch-combo”….hit breakfast when they open, go for a surf, and hit the breakfast hard again just before close…….’n boer maak n plan !!!
