Is the Mexican back in form?

Commenting on a recent post on the stance of oldfartsurfer No. 5, Moose, the ever observant Rouge (OFSC No. 45), asked "I'd also like you to investigate rumours that Mex has rediscovered the spring in a recent North Clifton session, absolutely nailing several late takeoffs.  Witnessed by old fart surf buddy and sled brother Rouge.  no fotos other than zen like static stretch used prior to entering the surf zone. R".
 (Mex springs over the sand dune on a beautiful spring morning with a new zest for the ocean)
Fortunately the Oldfartsurfer managed to procure some photos taken of the Mex (OFSC No. 4 and Head Honcho of the Old Farts Surf Co.) on the day.  The spring spring in the Mex's legs is obvious as he runs across the dune for an early morning barrel.
 (Mex prays to Huey for a spring in his legs to make the late drop)
Whilst no photo of the Mex "nailing several late take offs" as described by Rouge, he did capture the Zen like surf stretch prayer to the surf god Huey.  We can only deduce from the spring in the legs, the prayer to Huey along with Rouge's unquestionable integrity that the Mex did actually nail several late take offs.
In a closing note, can anyone confirm or deny the rumour that The Dude (OFSC No. 12) has ditched the Delaminator and secured a 6'4" Bobsled called Baby Bob but has been frustrated in his attempts an initial sea trials?

Goofy or Natural, the Big Question of Mysterious Moose

For those lucky enough to have a copy of the Old Farts Surf Co. 2012 Calendar you will see the November feature photo of oldfartsurfer No. 5, Moose, shown below.
Commenting on a previous post about Oldfartsurfer Moose taking a 150 ft drop, Anonymous said "left foot slightly forward. That makes you a natural foot which is funny since earlier shots of you I recall you as a goofy foot.  Or am I mistaken ....'.   Old Farts Surf Co. Head Honcho, OFSC No. 4 the Mexican said "This is a serious issue, examining the above shot it is hard to tell if Moose is goofy or natural as she appears to be walking the plank with some good old oldfartsurfing grace and poise".
OFSC No. 45, Rouge, noted "Moose is also spreading her wings in order to get some air, a move I noticed had been perfected by the Mexican last Sunday morning.  However, I can't tell if she is just in the process of lifting her right back foot in order to move forward or whether she has just lifted her forward right foot in order to move backward".
"We've researched the archives for previous photos of Moose and so far have only come up with the following photo of Moose riding a SUP" said the Mexican.  "As you can see it is inconclusive as to Moose's stance and we will have to undertake more research to settle the matter."

Moose makes 150 ft takeoff

The Old Farts Surf Co. is very proud of Oldfartsurfer No. 5, Moose, who recently took off on a 150 footer and survived.  Welcoming herself to the second 25 years of her life, and never one to back away from a challenge the plucky Moose went Chasing Mavericks, ate Gorilla food and took a 150 ft bungee drop.  "I'm really proud that Moose has the spirit of a true oldfarsurfer" said Old Farts Surf Co. Head Honcho, Mexican, "she has set a perfect example of what oldfartsurfing is all about, a really gutsy effort, especially that raw vegan food stuff!"
Describing her adventures Moose had no hesitation admitting the fear she had to overcome "Chasing Mavericks was good but I would never EVER surf a wave that was bigger than 2 feet so I can't imagine how it must feel to surf something so massive. Gorilla cake was delicious as you know.  Bungee jumping was insane, I don't know how you did it twice Mex. I felt like I was going to die when I was falling... I'm really glad I did it though and the location was really stunning.  I've attached a couple shots!"
