The Gold Coast trip in next weekend and I have a surf lesson booked and also a half-day trip to Stradbroke Island. I wanted to get some board shorts for the surfing lesson and also a backpack so that I don't need to bring my giant suitcase.
I've wanted to buy board shorts for a while but I haven't found any that fit me yet. Rip Curl had an offer on for 2 boardies for $50 and I actually managed to find two! Then I went next door to Roxy and they had an offer on for 2 for $30, and I managed to find two there as well! I considered returning the ones I bought at Rip Curl but then I figured I'll probably be living in them when summer comes so I might as well keep all 4. They are a bit too low-waist for me, but if I'm going to wait until I find the "perfect" one, I'll never get any board shorts.
So it was mostly a successful shopping day today, although I wish I had found some more summer tops.
