After the bad kharma of day 2 of the OFSC World Series Surfing Splinter Group Cold Water Classic, the Mex was struck down with a curse that saw him heaving his brunch for over 24 hours. Whilst Spot and The Dude sat up all night drinking the Mex's beer and wine and chewing the fat, all the Mex could do was lie in his tent and grown. Moose, who was toasting mashmallows for the crew, finally took pity and kindly gave him a drink of water before total dehydration killed him.

Not only was the Mex cursed but so was the whole contest. The swell dwindled and only a few fat peaks dribbled through while contestants bobbed around the water in wetsuits to suit the cold water in 30 degree heat. As soon as the contest was called off there was a SUP invation of the fat peaks.

(Just like Capt. Cook - SUP invasion, the day before Invasion Day)Conditions worsened during the day and the Mex had to pull the pin. Contestants abandoned the remote west coast site and headed for the big smoke. The Dude said " I drove non stop for 10 hours with the Mex growning in the back, I thought the journey would never end." When they got back to civilisation The Good Woman made her universal panacea , vegemite on toast, and the Mex was cured of the curse. "Thank Huey for the Good Woman" cried the Mex in relief.
