Another epic day out at the reef break again.

The morning was eventful, pulled up at a smaller break with cleaner waves than Day 1. Seb and Liam got out ok, however I wraped one of my backlines around a front line, accidentally uhooked and ended up having to get a rope to pull me back upwind to the boat.

About 10 minutes after this struggle, Seb completely disengaged from his kite, and the zodiac had to set off out to sea after it. Thank christ he ended up getting it back.

We headed off to the same spot as the day before as the conditions looked promising. The boat could park much closer to the reef break as the swell had dropped of just enough to stop the waves breaking all the way out.

I was set to go and fist off the boat. The waves were absolutely cranking, with reasonably easy access to the reef break. There were some spic waves coming through, it was slightly crowded with te poleys but everyone was civil enough out there.

A few memorable waves were party waves with the poleys, ripping up the breaking face for 30 seconds plus - abolutely awesome.

I'd pretty much given up as I was so bloody tired so caught a few waves back towards the boat. Liam was out there with the sweet zooming SLR so I decided to have a run on some of the big - just breaking waves heading just past hte boat - epic fun.

3 thumbs up!

Your other question - the boat was organised by one of the poleys on Seabreeze, only cost us $125 each for two nights on the boat and bbq breakfast lunch and dinner - awesome.
