It’s awesome when summer arrives, it always seems to arrive really suddenly… (and sometimes disappear again just as quickly). It is only a few days ago that the weather was still cold and windy. The last couple of days however have been a gift with sunny skies and some fantastic summer waves to enjoy.. so making the most of my status as a work-shy layabout, I mean self-employed person, I’ve been down at the beach for around 7am every morning to enjoy beautifully clean and empty waves, well overhead on sets. Simply magic after a winter of icy cold seas and strong winds. Back in the days of ‘career’ I used to sit in my office looking at the beach webcams and wondering “who the hell are those folk in the sea, don’t they have jobs?”… and now I know :-) I am not entirely a layabout, it’s been a phenomenally busy winter with a number of big projects… and especially on Monday the global launch of a new platform for a company in the US that is apparently already causing a bit of a stir.. but I won’t talk about that, it’s work after all. So… umm, what else… ah yes… injured leg is healing well too, and just in time. It’s still not fully sorted and has some really good colouring of the purple and black variety but as of this week I’m back riding and working hard to get the speed back in my legs after a 3-week layoff. Shouldn’t take too long. Next race a week tomorrow. In the meantime more riding and paddling to enjoy… hurrah! Have a great weekend.
