So here's to now

Tomorrow I leave for the orange river. That means this is my last time to blog in the year of 2013.

What a year it has been. I got waves, I collected good memories and I was able to do quite well academically also.

2013 has come to an end and it seems that we are now living in the future. To 2014 and beyond.

Surfing with only my friend and I in the water when it is cooking

Finding a cooking offshore beach break and being too scared to paddle it

Being close to alot of moving water

Meeting and learning

Alright yo the last week of my life has been good to me. Very mellow and most pleasant. Heaps of sun rays, brain freeze, a fair amount of cooking waves and good times.

I feel like every week I meet new people and listen to them I am learning and I like it.

I am going to the orange river on thursday say what?

whats old karlos been up to

Life has not been so groovy lately. I am generally speaking a rather groovy positive character. But the last too weeks of my life have seen me loose my groove and get slapped hard in the face by the real world I have been slaving away at a 50 hour week construction job let alone the 10 hours per week spent only on commuting.
The real world is harsh. There is no surfing each day. Hell there is barely enough time to get some exercise. I find myself spinning into a cycle of wishing for the weekends. Only to be disappointed by the activities it brings with it. The real world is a difficult place to be. I preffer living in my slightly more independent, free world. Groove on my friends.

This once again raises the question once asked by the great babylonians, are we human or are we dancer?

In the middle

Basic is clean and clean is good? Not so? 

These photos are all focused on a object in the middle. Not a bad place to be.

Eden garden

After stinking it up in some south african styled waves this morning my sister and I went for a walk to this little gem of a zone and soaked up some sun and swam in the ice cold mountain water.

Viva la waterman!

My week has been hellish but after a long day at the construction site I got home and the sea looked nice so I took my dog for a walk.

This is what I picture when I think "SUMMAH"

Week 1

Week number one of holiday has been delightful. It was spent in the Overberg area and I managed to get some very cool waves on the boogy so I am stoked.

I have also decided to start a series of edits which I will call "weekly diaries" which will just be a short edit ranging from 20 seconds up until about 5 minutes just recapping my week. Week 1 is looking good!

Here are some framegrabs from Week 1.

snapped fin

Snapped another fin at caves today so if anyone out there has fins to sell me please contact me on facebook!

There were some fun waves but all I managed to do was get buggered around by the sea. Pretty bummed out about the snapped fin as this leaves me unable to bodyboard until a fin appears. 

I did manage to take some photos while sitting sulking on the beach.

Foam, water, horizon, sky

Could be france?

monday evening cycle

Study break cycle to one of my favorite places at home. Went for a swim and took some photos.

A few landsapes

It is not often enough that I take my camera and go walk and look for inspiration. It is however something I should do more often. Here are a few from last night.

The best sunset of 2013 award goes to

Planet earth and its pink skyline tonight. Made me feel good. Had a grand day at the beach and got some pretty nice waves at koeel bay. Time to get back to the books for me after a pretty pretty weekend. 


Reflaction realisation

Also a reflection
These two photos above are both reflections off of the river. And I like them.

Here are some from today.
