    ... totally AWESOME! I was definitely going to try that again. -MY SAND SURFING EXPERIENCE- * * * After sand surfing, we headed down to the 90 mile beach. This is how it got that name. So, sit back and enjoy the story... Once upon a time, there were a few people who needed to travel to a town. But there were no roads, so they had to lead the horses onto a beach.

Pipi patch bar but then leave at 9 and after seeing Jono Tom goes back to the hostel to get his bottle of vodka, we see him 20 minutes later with the cops pouring the bottle into the road in front of him.

    ... a larger air tank as well so, for once, I wasn't the first person to run out of air!

    After the dive we returned to Russell to pick up the car, before heading south.
