GIRAFFES HIT J-BAY

First day at Giraffes Bay.

Yeah lads,
           

Just a quick hit to let the world know what the 2 biggest giraffes on tour have been up 2.

We are in J-Bay a little earlier than every other punter this year. It’s our rookie year so we decided to hit it early and try and get in a few head flicks before everyone gets here.

Waves have been small but fun, and - my god - the water is so bloody cold. I was cooking Rossy for bringing booties, telling him he was tripping that he would not need them, and as soon as my big toe hit that water I knew I was the one with egg on my face.

The understated look goes down well 'round these parts.

We went for a mission down the coast for a wave yesterday and were told it was only 30 minutes away, a short drive down a little dirt road ... one hour later, and one missing hub, we found this little wave that looked so fun.

The only thing was it was pretty much pitch black and I am pretty sure our big mates under water were frothing at the bit for a couple of giraffe’s to hit it for a late one. So we decided to give it a miss.

Which leaves us with today, the boys were up at 5:30am this morning, pumped for a little session at J-Bay before the weekend crowd hit it. We were the first ones out and snuck a few little grinders in under everyone’s noses.

New warm clobber we got when we hit the local markets yesterday. Yew.

After the surf decided to hit our new local for a couple of hot cups of java and some eggs on toast. Pretty much summed up a perfect morning for the boys.

So, there you go world, that’s what the 2 biggest rigs on tour have been up 2 for the last couple of days. 
   
Kindest regards,
