But I'm back.
With so many "definitive" histories of surf out there, it's time we all wrote our own stories.
Just because ours' didn't feature a camera crew and competitive surf stars, doesn't mean they didn't happen.
Doesn't mean they're somehow a less valid component in our shared surfing lore.
And if you haven't got a story yet, then the weekend provides the platform for what might be considered EPIC in years to come.
Share the stoke.
