Saturday morning in Mandurah
Adam Fahey posted this a few days ago. Just him and a few mates riding some lovely round swells at a beach called Seashells near Mandurah in Western Australia.
His last wave goes on and on for ever... Nice one.
Not all about downwind
Sometimes I feel I'm so focussed on downwind paddling, that I forget to chill and just go paddle a wave sometimes. We've got a fantastic beach here in Cape Town for this - the waves in Muizenberg start jacking up a hundred metres or more before the surfers even think of trying to catch anything.
Of course the thing is that there ARE surfers there, so you don't want to lose your ski - the surfers tend to get a little acid about a 6m lump of glass or carbon taking them out broadside.
