Surf Trip: Gnaraloo 09 ( 20 June 2009 - 27 June 2009)
Wind Strength: Established
Nb waves ridden: 2
Surfboard ridden: 7'6
Waves height: 1m-1.2m / 3ft-4ft
Today we paddled out the back with an escort. My dad and uncle showed us the best way to paddle out and where to sit. Managed to get cleaned up by one wave when a set came wide, but otherwise made it out the back fine.
I caught two ~head-high waves, the first I rode straight for some inexplicable reason. This left me with a massive distance to paddle back out. But I wanted to know that I could get back out the back. So I paddled wide like I was told and got there. The second wave I caught was looking really nice, but I needed to be angling more straight away. The wind was making the waves really bumpy and I ended up falling off on the second ride after hitting a speed bump.
Overwhelming experience. Hasgiven me a very different perception of my home breaks.
