Midnight Oil

[Powderworks] I'm waiting round for those waves and days

I'm blowing off work tomorrow to go bodyboarding, so I had early Oils music 
on my mind as I biked in to work today and it got me thinking.

Just how many Oils songs involve screwing work to go surfing or hit the 
beach?  I don't have the early catalog ripped to .mp3 at work so I thought 
it would be a fun waste of time to think about it.

The ones I can think of offhand are Bus to Bondi, Koala Sprint, and Surfin' 
With a Spoon.  Any others?


p.s. oh yeah ... a question for you surfer types ... my son has been 
bugging me for surf lessons and when he can swim well enough we're going to 
learn together.  I did some googling around about kids and surfing and 
popped up this link to an inflatable surf board.  http://www.uliboards.com/ 
I thought it was a neat idea - not only for a novice and a kid but for the 
"bike to surf" potential - it rolls up to fit in a pannier or a backpack 
with room for a wettie.  That appeals to me, as does the lack of travel 
headaches when visiting parents on the west coast.  Anyone familiar with 
these?  I'll take answers offline.
