kick arse

It's been insanely good weather here for about a week now with 36 degs yesterday and 31 today..went out on the boat and took the kids for a spin behind with the special ringthing that 2 people can sit in and you drag behind the boat..nice..the only problem with that is that when the weather is good the surf is flat..hope it starts blowing and raining again soon..hahahahaha

Time for an update!

(Johan) So far, both the surf and the sun has been completely absent this summer. Until a couple of days ago, when the weather switched, so we got the next best thing to waves, SUN!
Jay is off on the west coast, enjoying the real salty ocean, having a great time.

I thought I´d post some random pics just for the hell of it.

Ratman posing after surf in his school tie, draped in the Aussie flag. (He does this after every surf...)
This is the kind of poo(l)s we market in Sweden.

My son Jacob (5 yrs old) is a kick-ass skateboarder

I really hope we get some waves soon, then the summer`d be pretty damn perfect. Peace

Frexi scores again..alone..then we get the dregs!

7.5 degs in the water, i guess about 10 degs out and nooooooo wind..the swell rolles in..and...

Frexi got there first and it was pumpin' .woooooohoooooooooooeeeee

frexi taking off on a really nice one

frexi just about to get a nice backhand cover-up

bailin' out in front of another juicy one. See his head?

the crew Woodsy, Kojak and the Gnarly 'Cutterman' before the surf minus frexi (unfortunately not in this pic, nor i for that matter) An aftersurf midnightsun (cloud haha) photo.
p.s this photo is NOT photoshopped for colour or anything..just clipped to hide identity markings..!! We got out just before this photo because it got smaller,,but still glassy as and super nice! The 'Runners' score again, but frexi scored it best and all to himself for 3 hours before we got there....wish we'd gotten there earlier!!!
Peace readers, DA RAT
