Crazy Mat Riders on the loose
I started the morning off with a bang, cleaning up a kangaroo with the front of my van, luckily with not too much damage to my vehicle, and the poor old roo was last seen bouncing back into the bush !

Justin and I were on the beach at first light, with Neal and Eric not too far behind us, and with only the odd surfer coming out as well, the crowd really didn’t get much past the 4 of us , so we all made the most of the uncrowded conditions, putting in around 3 hours of surf time.

I was breaking in a brand new MT5 Series V Krypt mat, with the other boys all riding their faithful Fourth Gear Flyers.
‘This wave from this image doesn't look like much from this image but the second lump way down is the end of the first section. I was on it for 37sec at speed. This place has waves longer than that when its right on’ …. justin spittle
I was shooting at the 240fps WVGA setting with my gopro, so my frame grabs are of a smaller file size
After a quick break and feed, then onto another reef, with Eric soon out there bringing the crowd level to 2…..we decided not to spoil their fun , so sat back and took a few pictures instead

Eric was already in the water ( surf number 3 for him ) by the time we arrived , and even though mat reef looked awful enticing, there was a local crew on it , so with my favourite righthand point break ‘coco pops ‘ empty, it was a no brainer were we were going to paddle out to!
