After the competition, Bob and his girlfriend Carole called in for a visit on the way back to Sydney and lucked into some decent swell and conditions while in our local area.
Bob might be 60 but he is still a grommie at heart and is keen for anything,up at the crack of dawn, paddling out in the dark, a great kneeboarder to surf with and a top bloke.
I was stoked to share a couple of surfs with him!
