...well Petey and I headed to Ulus at dark as usual......I brought my 6'10" as I knew the swell was dropping and the 7'8" would be too much board....it turned out the 6'10" was a bit much....we made the walk up to Secrets as the tide was 1.0.....on the paddle out I jumped at the wrong time(the usual) and took a set of 10 or 12 on the head....no biggie as the waves I was duck diving the day before were a lot bigger and more powerful.....got out and made the paddle up......it was a dropping tide so it should be getting better for the next few hours......it looked to be 2'-3' with 5' sets when we frist got out.....then 3'-4' with 5' sets....then 4'-5'......the greatest thing is that in the 4 hours we surfed, it was just me and pete.....it was sunny....it rained....had a wind bump....got glassy....there were rainbows several different ones......good waves.....steep drops....heavy wipe-outs.....all the things secrets throws at you......and we were there to enjoy....now I got a few I wish I missed......I missed a few I wish I got.......the last hour we spent at Temples.....with a couple of other guys....one guy on a Roberts.....a Quicksilver guy....and another guy who got clobbered and went in....by this time we were beat.....and went in as well.....this was the first 5 hour surf I've had this year.....maybe ever.....by the time we got home Saso had rice ready I had stopped and gotten some coconuts and some bunkus.....smoothie and brekie.....shower and a nap.....then sorted some pictures......I took some really good shots at Bingin on june 1st....one will be featured today......it's fun and exciting shooting good surfers in good waves.....it's hard to make bad surfers look good....but these guys and this day came together quite nicely...I love it when a plan comes together....then Saso and I went to town.....dropped the 7'4" off at the ding repair, that was just picked up 5 days ago.....I put a hole in the rail....so back to repair.....and put a plug in on the nose for the video camera....I have one on the fish as well, bot the waves I catch on the 7'4" should be interesting.....wish I had it on there when I got my in and out barrel the other day......eventually it will all come together....other town activities included trying to find Saso some reef booties....to no avail....then to Ruko to hear Petey share for his 8 year Na b-day.....then to shanty town for veggie soup and fried bread wit banana, chocolate and peanut....then to the by-pass for the 30 minute ride back to the Bukit...and bed......
