Don’t let the storms get you down

A couple of weekends ago I told you all that we found a gap in the bad weather to play around in the bay behind our house.

There had been storm cells all over Brisbane throughout the weekend. At about midday on the Sunday we looked outside and saw the water looking like glass. We immediately started getting the jetski ready to head out for a bit of a hook around the mangroves.

What a great feeling to be able to glide over the water at high speed. As we came around to the mangroves we found 3 of Ryan’s friends (Ando, Jess and Shane) on their jetski having a bit of a scurf.

For those who are unfamiliar with this term, scurfing is like wakeboarding but with a surf board.

It was so fun to watch them. I whipped out my iPhone to capture some video. I held on to it pretty tight to make sure it did not fall into the water. That’s what insurance is for right?

They then handed me their waterproof camera, which is probably a more reasonable camera to use.

Ryan then had a bit of a go. I was on the other jetski taking video. Or at least I thought i was. It seems that I stopped recording 1 second in. Sorry Ryan, it really would have been good footage if it had worked.

Anyway, I have compiled the rest of the videos for you. Check it out (music: “born to be wild” by steppenwolf)

So Ryan doesn’t feel left out, here is a photo of him from previous wakeboarding day we had:

Thanks to the Canadian girls who were visiting Brisbane at the time for taking this photo.

For those who like a bit of a laugh, check out my face plant from the beginning of the year. Yep, it resulted in a concussion, much to the amusement of my friends seeing this photo:

Anyway, after our hour out on the glassy water we came back in to land to make sure we did not get caught in a storm. The evening brought a nicely different looking sunset for us to enjoy as the next storm rolled in:
