CHEADS AND BLAKES LOST WEEKEND: part 1
Luke: Arrived LA. The US Open always a circus. Surf is rubbish but parties plentiful. Spewed, cried, laughed, danced and everything in between. Got lost in Hollywood for 3 days. I hooked up a mate, Leigh Sedley (pro surfer and DJ) with a bunch of gear and he became our unofficial US ambassador. Went to Hooters, twice, drank beer and gave BIG tips.Blake: It went pear shape in my first heat. Was more like a gymnastics display by my Brazilian counterparts while I was on still on the monkey bars. Time to cut my loses. Spent 6 nights partying for Nic Muscrofts retirement. Didn’t see much daylight. Somewhere in between, went to a midget bikini bar – a classy establishment. Most of the attention was on the lingerie wearing bar staff. Went to a Dirt Nasty concert. Hands down the worst live performance ever. Lucky he had rigs (we’re assuming, young ladies?) dancing in lingerie. Had 4 surfs over 8 days, because it was rubbish. Must send some footage to MAMBO … to keep the bar tab open.
