South African National Longboard Surfing Championships at The Point in Mosselbay April 2016
The weather was absolutely great only on Friday we had a small storm (that rip a couple of tears in out tent). The tent tears was cause by my own stupidity because I packed a container against the side of the tent. (Mistake) The new generation tents are build to move and bend with the winds
The Positive side is that the Winds also help create major waves, with swells of 5 feet and just around the Point the swells was over 20 feet.
It has been a tread to watch the older master surfers in action. These more mature wavemaster just confirmed again age is just a number when are having fun
As for the youngsters - Amazing - that is about all how I can describe these athlete's. They make surfing these longboards look so easy.
I was Blessed to have Mike and Eddie staying next to us at Mosselbay Point Caravan park (they were also part of the more mature elite-surfer-group that has had thousands of waves beneath their bellies -"boards"). At the end of each day they always shared some of the main events and happenings, it was also at these times that I also picked up a couple of tips and some the surfing-lingo.
Surfing General Knowledge
Thanks to the nice and friendly longboard surfers in Mosselbay of 2016 Nationals, I also now know some of the surfing terms used to describe certain conditions and happenings.
Always had the impression that Surfer were arrogant, self centered Airheads, but the surfers of the 2016 National SA longboard Surfing Championship proved this theory wrong and showed me a different side.
I suppose it's like anything else in life - the better you become, the lesser you have to fake

Why am I a Slave
I've always had stuff that I have been carrying with me - two those things riding on my shoulder is;
That somehow I am wasting by doing the wrong stuff and I actually meant to do something completely different . . . .( I will tell you more about this in another post).
The other issue is that I always had this feeling that I am not really in control of my life and someone which I don't even know is controlling me - This invisible master is controlling everything!
IT is telling me when to sleep and when to get up
>>>>> the worse thing "it" has done to me was to rob me of many hours of sleep
After such a long time of carrying this load I have at last discovered who and what "IT" was.
Once I have exposed "IT" for myself the process elimination starts.
But first let me tell you how it happend
A couple of days ago I walk into a Appliance Part store but they were extremely busy so I decided to take a chair while the help the customer before me. On the coffee table next to me I found this old Book between the stake of magazine.
When I open the old book it opened exactly on the page in the above picture. You know how it is when you are waiting for someone to call you - you don't want to start reading because at the most interesting part they always call your name.
I just couldn't help myself because the words of no 7 just JUMP into my Face!
THE RICH RULES OVER THE POOR
Just then they called me, I grab my phone and took picture of this page
Only when I downloaded all the pictures on my phone the text again hit me. That is when it dawned on me the Invisible Master that has been controlling me was Debt. It was always a 'up-grade-here' or "some-must-have-there".
It was a relief to find out that I wasn't bonkers although some of my friends might differ.
There is a "Force" out-that controls how you spend your life.
Once you Know - you and I can fight-IT!
These Guys has taken street music to a new level. Amazing!
So many artists has had a fling with this Ben E King song, I can honestly say I haven't heard a bad version yet but this one is just. . . .global!
Let's stand together and move forward to end the "Struggle-Mindset"
"it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." - Imagine saying this to 8+years old boy and what it does to his believe system.
For most of my life I believed that it is wrong to be wealthy and that rich people has to be devious. All throughout my working life I earned, I lived. Spending my resources was fun and it is also the right thing to do..
A short time ago when I have stumble across the insightfulness of religious financial Guru's here on the internet and I now have come to realize that my subconscious belief system was all wrong.
It is also possible that above quote could have many different meanings. (which i will talk about in a different post). This might also be a good time to give you my disclaimer.;
I have no financial qualification and also no Theological expert.. I just enjoy taking things and gadgets apart to see I can improve. Everything you read and see hear is mostly stuff that belongs to others and this is only my interpretation of it. If you feel something on this blog belong to you feel free to drop me note so that I can credit you or remove it.
The Bibles way of managing your finances
Although the Bible doesn't actually tell us about modern day financial planning, it does give us wisdom and prudence how to managing our affairs.
It all starts with the following believe.
God has created everything and everything belongs to Him
Do all your work as given by the Lord Korrentheus 3 : 23.
All tasks/work comes from the Lord. He has intrusted me and you to work for Him and glorify Him with our approach to the work He has intrusted us with..
We make mistakes. Most of the time it is not done intentionally because I firmly be nobody will deliberately cause hardship for his family. and himself by mismanaging his work and money. Temptation lure everywhere in our daily lives and it you let your guard down for a second someone will convince you a want-is-a-need to have.
Big business and Banks dazzle the average working person into thinking that he now has ARRIVED - by dumping Credit/Shopping Cards in his hands..
People are so blinded by their shining possessions that they never see how these corporations has tricked them into Financial-slavery. Then Consumers must work long and far away from their families just to make the monthly payment.
Most people never realize the cause for their strained relationships are because of the gap between their earning and spending.
It is never too late to make adjustments to your lifestyle by spending less than you make and spend more time with family and friends.

I just had one of those days, all the women I came in contact with just made me feel great!
While most people spend this public holiday sleeping or taking a well deserved rest. It was a perfect time for me to catch up on some work while giving my better half a deserved rest.
To all my Friends I hope this Women's Day was as special for you as it was for me.
