Surf Like An Australian

lab_image_aussie_surfer

Our last Surfboat Captain - Fred - returned to his homeland of Oz a few months ago. He last made an appearance here in Cornwall exhibiting the bare assed cheek we came to love and respect. Literally.

I've always fancied a trip Down Under so when I caught sight of an article asking...

"Want to blend in and make friends with the locals while Down Under? Easy as, mate. You just need to learn to surf, stop speaking like a drongo and grow a mullet. Here’s our Johnny foreigner-friendly guide to being an Aussie."

lab_image_fred...I was all eyes. Sorted. If you're reading this Fred - hope you're missing the rain and having your hand up a Cornish cow's ass. Have Aussie Bum signed you yet?

The Mullet man looks uncannily like Minnow Green of Aggie....a former double ski paddling partner of Monsieur Gaisford as well I may add.........(When Pedro had hair and a Mini)

I'm thinking of letting my luxuriant curls grwo out spikey one - reckon my mullet might take some time in developing though :( ... and btw "brown mullet" is Aussie slang for a turd in the sea (while we're on the subject)
