This Turtle has just been lazying around

and every time she gets to her laptop to try and finish her Writing 101 assignments – exactly .. those …from September – she is sidetracked and watches surf instead. She says she is cleaning her head and oxygenating her thoughts but I think the girl is just plain lazy. The Otter Sister says.

Well if I can’t be at the beach I can still marvel at these guy’s maneuvers and share some of them with you I guess 🙂

Our local boy Frederico Morais who eliminated World Nr 1 Mick Fanning (AUS) on a previous heat scores a beautiful 9.3 with this wave.

And on the next clip you can see Kolohe Andino (USA) surfing a perfect 10.

But if you like your waves a little bit bigger , as in 60 feet high , look what we have a few kilometres up from Peniche in Nazaré Beach :

The big ones started coming in this past Tuesday 27.

It amazes me how this guys dare to get in there (up to his right is his support jet-ski , which helps us compare for size relative to the wave).

And to my Otter sister I say that I am working if not on Writing101 at least on Blogging 101 (lesson 4 – insert video/image/music) right?

Turtle Hugs 🙂

PS : and don’t despair , the surf competition ends on Saturday. 😉
