I wanted to contact other paddlers from up there and through some common friends I met Eddie. Actually I had met him before when he come down to Sydney a few months ago and joined us in a big group for a Tuesday night paddle. However I had not had opportunity to chat with him then. I had thought of renting kayak and gear up there but Eddie offered to lend me the exact same kayak I have here so I took the offer.

|This is not fair!! In the middle of two brakes!!|
|I couldn't stay up and surfed upside down|
This little island is only 1 km from the coast and soon after we started it broke my bad luck with wild water animals!!!

|A fantastic place|
Take a look at the video below playing around Cook Is. While surfing I was so happy that I started howling at 2 minutes, went under water rolled back up and as I was still on the wave I kept howling.
