Beach

Posted by Ben, Mar 24 2008, 09:06 PM

Even though the surf wasn't big, Perth Beaches were fabulous this Easter.

I made a few discoveries:

  • My 11 yo sons is a goofy foot (for you non-surfers, it means right foot forward surfer and it means facing the wave wall of a left peeling wave) which is great for the predominantly left-hander waves of Western Australia.
  • Glass in my foot while walking at the beach. I think F'n brain dead, unthinking people who bring glass to the beach should be banned from the beach for a summer or two. There is no convincing reason to bring glass to the beach. Even sparkling wine can be bought in cans or plastic bottles. I used to get thripence for each bottle I collected. There was no broken glass problem then. I think the Western Australian government and glass bottle distibutors are poor at social engineering, corporate social responsiblity and care for the beach environment. What do you think?

    The glass problems starts innocently like this ...

    ... in a beach-side place like this
  • That in small waves laying down on my son's small soft board is nearly as much fun as standing. Waves were just big enough to break on usually crowed Trigg Point but on this Easter Monday it was only my Broome surfing mate Trevor. It was the first time in 33 years he came to visit and just like the old days we had fun till his flight back to Broome that afternoon.
  • The comedy of the street theatre at Fremantle was again very entertaining.
