I got a Tide Clock for the house , a Classic Bing Advertisement metal Sign, a Couple hoodies one was the new rip curl hoodie with the headphones build in the draw strings, a pair of navy blue classic vans (zephyr style) shoes, Dark Fall on DVD and a cpl hats
a wave tribe fin wallet (big enough to hold log fins & pockets smaller enough to hold thruster fins)
a back-up hang-goose for those double session days...no putting on a wet wetsuit for me!
a renewal of my surfer's journal subscription (which was initially gift last year)
a 35mm nikon nikonos 4-A waterproof camera (this is prob. the gift that's stoking me out the most this year...can't wait to get my hands on some 35mm film & get learning how to use this thing! still love my 3000D dslr, but film holds a special place in my heart!)
a batch of my aunt's special oatmeal raisin cookies
& a solo log session at mid-day
A 4 day trip to Australia consisting of snorkeling, fishing, hiking, & EPIC whitewater rafting during cyclone rains. Spent most of the time in the topical mountains so no surf ....but when I returned home my local spot was still holding headhigh waves from the cyclone swell so I guess some surf was had as well.
