Switzerland to West Oz - Home to home
After the last PWA event of the year, Sylt, I spent 10 days at home in Switzerland sorting out my stuff and mainly catching up with everyone, family and friends. Precious moments and great memories.
I've now been in Western Australia for almost a month and it's just like being at home. It's so good to be back. I just love it and there's nowhere I'd like to be more than here.
Switzerland and Australia are very different places, as far away from each other as they can be on this planet and still, both feel like home. Lakes, mountains and snow in one, ocean, desert and waves in the other... I love it all and am happiest in either.
Don't get me wrong though. Traveling the world is amazing and I appreciate my luck to be able to see so many places and meet new people every day. All this traveling is a unique experience and I wouldn't swap it for anything.
But being on the road for over 6 months also makes you appreciate home. Which is exactly what I'm doing at the moment.
I've been back in Western Australia for almost a month now, and all the days I've had on the water were sick. Not one rubbish day.
Scored a few days at South Passage with uncrowded glassy waves. Got Avalon working with about 4 of us out there, unexpected and great fun. An awesome weekend up in Green Head with Si, Ben, Scotty and Juso, forward loops contest, big jumps and big crashes (Si definitely won that one with the biggest crash I've seen in a while). We also had a few freestyle sessions on days without swell. The best one at Pelican Point, 4.2 stacked, flying on my Skate, some big moves and crashes too, so much fun I couldn't come off the water.
It's so good to be back, cruising along the coast looking for wind and waves or chilling at home.
Sorry, no action photos. With reefs 2km out it's a bit difficult.
