Warmer Times

Dom getting his shred on in warmer times last summer. A reminder that such times are just around the corner. Geez it'll be good to ditch the wetty & pull on some boardies. Yew!

Java Time

Gaz is back from a 3 week solo mission in Java with some fantastic photos as usual... some now... some more later:

".... I chose Java as I remember it's magic about 5 years ago when I went with a friend. It's still an amazing place... amazing people... and a coastline awash with amazing waves.

People in the photos are some of the crew I met along the way... ahhh just looking at these again makes me want to get out of cold, windy, wet Vicco and on a plane back over there."
