Xmas time is getaway time, for me at least since a couple of years I was never around to witness the present-buying madness, feeding frenzys for days and the following "where will you celebrate New Years?" problems most people back home seem to have. The last years Xmas time the waves were cranking nonstop, but the forecast for Danger Island turned to really average so changed my mind and went to the good old mainland which showed fun small swells and light easterly winds for as long as MSW´s Pro Forecast went. Had some real nice time with the crew up north and headed to visit the place I lived in for a while probably 14 years ago now. Felt really strange to visit our old apartment where the magic happened back then but good in a way and actually caught one of the funnest days and banks there I ever saw. Good memories and things didn´t change much, at least compared to for example Bali, which just went mad within the same stretch of time.
