Desert Rat

Desert Rat

I have not been back to Western Australia for 10 years, my last trip was pretty epic so i knew it would take a lot to top that trip. It has been a pretty rubbish start to the windsurf season in the UK and Ireland so i started to look further afield for wind and waves, i saw that Western Australia was looking pretty good for swell but wind at this time of the year is always a big gamble. Not putting too much faith in my Antipodian meteorological skills, i consulted the guys at Severne HQ who gave me the thumbs up to book my flight. Thirty seven hours later i fiind myself in the middle of the Western Australian desert armed with my ice box, a crate of beer, snaggers (sausages), my Starboard Quads and my Severne Blades. For the next 8 days i sailed and surfed every single day in pretty much perfection, i probably banked 6 hours in the water every day more than enough to get rid of the jet lag!
I met loads of new and old friends, the Aussies really do love beer, i forgot how much they love it!!
