Togat day/82

……

…….in today's "tales from the hollywood bowl"……it was a magic day…..no wind……great waves……perfect mentawai conditions……I was in the water at 7am, just me and tyler…….I didn't have the camera as angie is in the office and I did not want to disturb her……I did't get out of the water until about 1130am……a 24 wave morning…….we were joined by the tender off the barren joey, and also aloita……not too many in the water and still fun……since I have been surf-guide there is no time to sort photos, resize photos, no nap time, no blog time, its on from 5am till 9pm……almost like a job…….so we went back out for an afternoon surfboarding experience…….it was a little different,,,,,the barren joey had brought their boat over and had 10 frothing no etiquette having bogan aussies on board……at first it was ok as I was shooting and droning……once I hit the water it was hard work getting 6 waves……there was a big(130 kilos+) guy paddleboarding……dangerous…….he went on a big one, john and I were on the inside, john went one way, I went the other, the guy fell on the drop, I threw my board and swam for the bottom, he come up right next to me(my leash had snapped)I was furious, asked him in the politest "what the f do you think you are doing out here, trying to kill someone????" you should go in and get my f-ing board…….terry was shooting water-shots earlier and sent a few over….I'll use one for todays photo…..
