Jamie was the first to surf it as far as I know. He named it "Emilies" after his daughter. And he surfed the shit out of this left, and every other one for that matter. The Southerlies were well and truly in and the lefts were all firing. The goofyfooters were in heaven. Bingo swallowed his ears from smiling so much. His solos the only thing breaking the solitude. Salvo still scored the best tube on his first wave at that other little left. The Firies were literally 'on fire'! Gecko would not go right, but we did not hold it against him as there was hardly any rights anyway. Ian threw those big boards around the long lefts, copped his floggings and came up smiling everytime. Sormo , the quiet achiever scored more than his fare share. But the Capt, Ernie, Tony, and Sormo were very happy individuals later coming across a whale early one morning on their way to a secret secret right that they surfed by themselves. It must have been the good karma for letting the turtle go, because as they say in the Department·"It doesn't get any better than this"
