Star Man

Neal Cameron

Friday is the new Saturday

After a quick and very crowded slide the other morning at Gilligans with Neal , add some nice breakfast and coffee to re fuel the batteries, and then it was time for another crowded surf-o-thon amongst the wave hungry Friday/Weekend warriors that seem to descend on the normally quiet NSW South Coast like clock work. I decided to pass and shoot some pics of Neal riding his Peter Berry inspired UFO space ship from the comfort of the second lookout . It was fairly crowded considering it was not the right swell direction or exactly big , but it was a sunny Friday afternoon and I was able to film one of Neal's waves that he stole off the hungry crowd of surfers, before calling it quits and heading home.

Neal's mat of choice,
the 4GF tracker with his own customized handle and leash
Continental Giant Flippers

We only shared a couple of waves together before the crowd and drop ins became too much to bare.

There was penty of different life forms in the water for most of the day

Neal riding a wave below in sequence, and as you can see not riding the biggest of waves but still generating some awesome down the line speed and cutbacks with his UFO kneeboard.

I was like a kid in a candy store when Neal turned up with all these boards a few years back. Watch the above short video with Neal giving some insight to these boards .
