Local knowledge

Boxing day 2007, secret spot, Exuma, Bahamas

Am stuck without a boat this year, so have to make all my missions by car until the cavalry arrives friday. After that, back to the usual reef passes I have been missing for years. So, checked some inshore reefs in an area no one looks. Found a fun 2-3' left working with the normal crowd.....

the first boards of my out island quiver to be dug out. 6'10" egg, and a 6'2" assymetrical single fin, more suited to those hollow reef passes.

And then a cold one watching the sunset. All begs to know, "Why did I leave again?"

dey coming bouy...

Junkanoo 2007
Exuma, Bahamas
Much like carnival in Brasil, these groups make their own costumes out of paper mache, and carry these ornate creations while dancing and playing instruments. There are groups of dancers, brass bands, and huge goat skin drums so loud you feel it in your heart.

Big sense of African roots this year.
This groups' theme was Love
It starts at 4am on Boxing day, and goes on until the sun comes up. Everyone dancing, laughing, and generally having a great time. And, these groups make these costumes with money out of their own pockets. Now, if I could only get the music online for you to hear...

When the last of the group passes, you jump in behind, shake your things, and this is called 'rushing,' but its just plain fun.

"we go rushing, we go rushing through the crowd..."

eh man, i gone....

After 16months of very little sun, and no water temps over 12C(mid 50s F)
its time for a vacation to warmer, less crowded, and more familiar climes.
Happy Holidays to everyone, see you next year!

We as surfers have such a great history, and such charismatic characters in our midst.
Thank god we are not like other sports.
