the Dose is back

When all goes well …it’s “Sweet as, bro”. But when things become unstuck it can be very frustrating, to the point where one just gives up in the end. Trying to get this blog working properly again was so frustrating I basically just gave up. I couldn’t be bothered expending the time and mental energy to fiddle around in a very un-intuitive interface like WordPress to try and rectify the image size issues. The month of November passed by completely Blog-less and nobody seemed to be missing The Daily Dose of the Salts. Then I started to get the odd query from folks who were in fact missing it. So… let’s have a play and see what happens. (Apologies up front if your email images are still XXL).


no significant swell today

My mate Taylor from USA, who has been living at Wainui Beach behind Frick’s the last few months, has had his own frustrations recently. Immigration turned down his new visa application and after their official response sat at the courier depot for over a week undelivered, Taylor discovered that he was now an ‘over-stayer’ and had 7 days to leave the country, before re-entering on a new visitor’s visa. With airfares to Fiji being super cheap right now I recommended he head there to visit friends for a couple of weeks. He flew out tonight. The swell is non-existent here today -flattest day for weeks- so a good time for him to escape. His cloud of frustration might just have a silver lining!    Ô


Taylor, “Fiji is thata way”
