Blowin its Guts in Perth, Western Australia
Perth’s an oft-missed treat. The beaches are immaculate, the weather is fine and the music scene is sound. On a cruisy afternoon sittin’ at home with a few mates and a few beers, someone made mention of a potential swell kickin’ against the coast, so we piled a few boards into my car and and rolled down the road to have a scope… Turned out the swell was rather unremarkable and the wind was blowin’ its guts (not much of a surprise considering Perth is apparently one of the windiest cities on Earth) so after a beer and a blather and a bit more staring into a lowering sun we about-faced and rolled back. Surf-wise a swing-and-a-miss, but an otherwise pleasant interlude in our afternoon.

A perfect day in Perth? Sunset surf, delicious rum, a gig somewhere, heated discussions at Billy Lee’s over wine and fried squid at 3am.
A perfect meal? Roast rack of lamb, at my folks’ place.
A little known fact about Perth? It’s dope.
