If Lenin surfed

If Lenin surfed, he would probably wave to his salty comrades while gliding on his log as demonstrated here by Noosa Mal Club elder,  Mick Henderson. No idea whether there would be a revolution or not though.
Maybe he'd argue for surfers to give up the shackles of commercially dependent product and embrace the purity of body surfing.

Monochrome Monday (down to the sea again)

 Some salty snippets of memories and verse
 for my siblings of the sea and assorted lurkers.

"I must down to the seas again, 
for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call 
that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day 
with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, 
and the sea-gulls crying."

Quote Week - 1.2 (Leunig)

According to his website,

"Michael Leunig is an Australian cartoonist, writer, painter, philosopher and poet. His commentary on political, cultural and emotional life spans more than forty years and has often explored the idea of an innocent and sacred personal world. The fragile ecosystem of human nature and its relationship to the wider natural world is a related and recurrent theme."

I have been abig fan for along time. I also like these quotes from his site.

"True art does not look like art."
Lao Tzu

"In the artist of all kinds 
one can detect an inherent dilema 
which belongs to the co-existence of two trends; 
the urgent need to communicate 
and the still more urgent need not to be found."
D.W. Winnicott

Crazed, Dazed but Unphased

The points are going to be very busy this weekend. 
Get some. Share some.
And for the rest of us amateurs, have some respect and wear a legrope. Nobody thinks you're cool swimming after your log as it bashes its way shorewards when you fall off the nose after that hang 10 in the barrel.

Harry x Harry

Word on the coconut telegraph is that these fellas bringing their cheeky irreverence to the tandem event last week at Noosa were Harry Bieden and Harry Bryant.
Whoever they were, they did it skilfully, wearing shoes and sox and other fashion accessories in the lineup, oblivious to the grace displayed by their competition.

Quote - Week 2

"The summer had inhaled
And held its breath too long
The winter looked the same
As if it never had gone
And through an open window
Where no curtain hung
I saw you, I saw you
Comin' back to me"
from Comin Back to Me by Jefferson Airplane
