Bittersweet Australia

Its been a month and a half in Aus. Today is my last day here so I’m reminiscing over the good, the bad, the laughs and the love of travel.

Boards cleaned and ready to go. Super blessed to have my incredible sponsors as a back bone through every step of the way :)

Our unit, right on Burleigh. Burleigh Beach Towers did use good, jacuzzis sessions, tennis games and 4:30am run downs to surf!

Mereweather Hunter Ports Classic. Dismal surf to say the least. Happy to be around the contest scene again though :)

Its a new year, screw new beginnings, i love my life.

So thats exactly that, screw new beginnings, I’m keeping this little surfing dream alive. I have amazing friends of all races, religions and nationalities. All thanks to this wonderful sport I am blessed to be a part of. Im gonna hit that statement and say, we’re living the dream.

Year 2 of the WQS. 2012 fell under Injury, so it’s all new again, so I guess in that sense, yes it’s a new beginning. Im back in Aus, for like the 20th time.

Airports. Yay for lounges with free food and internet. Im going to Aus, time to act like a Jew.

Um like my first 2 days in Oz were disasters. I was acting like a baby, all alone and I missed home so bad that I felt sick. Then Sarah arrived and giggles were lively and roaming around Aus was all enjoyable again.

There is no sun, its pouring outside and there are Tornado warnings. No lies, there is a crazy cyclone and I have seen footage of Tornados not too far away. So this is us, Nike Training every single day!

I like to ride my bicycle…

And then there was sunshine. The sea still looked like a washing machine slash tsunami so we went for a 25km cycle. It was interesting, flooding everywhere and trees sprawled across the roads for days.

Happy Birthday to you…

Yay for birthdays and getting older. It means dinners, cupcakes and sparkles. Happy Birthday little one, Saartjie. The weather didnt dampen our spirits so we had coffee dates and then a lovely dinner with the Roxy team.

Byron Bay is a treat, even in a cyclone and nearly dying on the way home. We were adamant to see ‘Van She’ live and play with Amber and Simon, our fellow lost South Africans :) So it was an eventful day, shopping, wine and live music. What beats live music? Driving home was a nightmare but we had yummy icecreams, yes in the middle of a freezing cyclone!

Other than all my fun, now we are surfing lots, training everyday and eating like rabbits. All for good things in the near future.

Stunning Summer.

Favourite season of the year. A different bikini everyday, coconuts, ice cold ciders, ella bache’d faces, barefeet, fresh salads, pool parties and friends on the beach. My summer at home this time round, beat them all. But I keep saying that every year. At least I know its always getting better and better :)

What a wonderful December it was with pretty much the best human ever.

After a sneaky road trip to Cape Town and my little Durban stint I spent my days between Cape St Francis, Jbay and the Kromme river. All sunshine, water and fresh air. Most of it was with my family, AK’s family and all the 6312 jollers. Nina Brown came to play over New Years, now that made my little heart happy.

1st day, 1st hour of opening. Getting into it slowly but surely. The frothers.

What a good bunch of people.

Billys beach in full force.

Probably the best creation for a December of jols and good music = Billys Beach. Thats what it was, a dam in the middle of nowhere, pilled with sand and a massive dance tent for the whole beach bar vibe. Then there were Lilo’s, umbrellas, pool noodles, Brutal slushies, copious amounts of alcohol and SA’s raddest house/lounge DJ’s, where Ari Kraak tops the list. And I’m not being biased here! The 3 days spent there were enough to make up my December jolling. TOO MUCH GAAAAADAAAAAM FUUUUNNN!!!

AK, Dan and myself. Red bull vodka for days. Thank god (and Cob and Billy and AK) for free tabs.

Swell in the summer? At supers. Stunning days filled of surfing with AK, Steve and Dan out in Jbay. Its rather convenient waking up, walking down the stairs and being in the supers paddle out gully. I lie, its a real blessing. I am the happiest lady thanks to this other incredible human, named – Habib. <3

New found favourite. Well new given favourite. My new summer Von Zipper kini’s are delightful.

Merry Christmas. A tremendously busy one, Christmas eve dinner at the Zoets, Zoetmulder family brunch and ended off with The Kraaks for lunch as well as a pop by to AK’s dad. Oh and did I mention, it all got rowdy after lots of tequila and mojitos with special people. Skinny dips in the ocean too, sneaky buffalos.

Yup, I did catch the bigger fish of the two. Hahah. Thanks for teaching me your skills boyfriend ;)

Everyone had a beach day before lunch. Longboards, tiny waves, beach pool and sunshine. Couldnt have asked for a better day. Jess and Uncle AK <3

Going to miss these incredible times. Might only be just short of 2 months but home is definately home. My family back home, that includes all of you friends too, you all made for an outstanding December. <3
