The Curse

Despite cancelling my Birthday celebrations, it was great to catch up with my old windsurfing friend Rob and his family. Nothing quite like seeing old friends, and just catching up on whats been happening. One thing that I always remember Rob for, was his seeming ability to scare off the best conditions. Even if the forecast was perfect, we often used to think the curse of Rob, would kill off any wind, and even swell would flatten. Superstitious, and ridiculous really, but no apologies. True to form, despite a strong wind forecast, we really saw little wind during his visit, but literally within 12 hours of his departure, the wind notched up and we scored a perfect fun session in some micro swell and strong off shores.


  1. The first pulses of the new swell arrive....

  2. Good story! Still looking to come over, hopefully next week, when the wind drops a little.

  3. This photo really doesn't do justice to how much fun it really was.
