I am having one of those days today. I am sitting in an inner-city office going through the motions. The air-conditioning is broken (again) and the surf is pumping. The first I heard of it was on the bus this morning on my way into work. “Should I just stay on and head home?”, I wondered briefly before herding off with the rest of the cattle.

The afternoon is here and it looks like conditions haven’t deteriorated over the day. The emails are flooding through into my Inbox of all my local breaks looking the best they have in the last couple of months. “These days only come about a couple of times a year” the captions rudely scream into my face.

Sure I’ll be able to pay the mortgage this month and will have food on the table, but you have to wonder don’t you, whether all this is worth it. There is a lot to be said for being surfed out, sleeping on a mate’s couch and eating boiled rice for dinner.

In case you did miss it, I’ve included some shots from local photographers. Subscribe to their daily email so you can also dream of being elsewhere.
