The news: “….former World Tour surfer Greg Emslie added a second Men’s title to his trophy cabinet and was awarded his national team blazer as the first member of the SA Team that will compete in the ISA World Surfing Games in Peru later this year.”
What a legend…..gongrats Greg, I’m so happy for you !! I know of no surfer that can read the ocean better than Greg….he is always on the best waves, even when he’s not trying.
Good luck in Peru……it’s time to be World Champ again…….that would be sweeeet !!!!
Took a trip to the hospital to get some gross warts burnt off between my two toes….this is “the before”
My sweet outfit, and looking forward to some MEDICATIOOOOON, yeah !!!
And the “now” look – gangrine Visagie – vrot vleis – not a pretty sight!!!. It really hurts going surfing too…..
The Cambridge dictionary defines disappointed as: unhappy because someone or something was not as good as you hoped or expected, or because something did not happen.
I liked the YourDictionary definition better: Displeased, dissatisfied, discouraged, frustrated, let down, unsatisfied, despondent, depressed, objecting, complaining, distressed, downcast, hopeless, disconcerted, disgruntled, disillusioned, shot down.
Right now, I should be in the skies over the Indian Ocean on my way to Indo for a Mentawi boat trip…..things went wrong….some guys pulled out……
Surfing Mossels with my friends is just as good.
I’ve been home for a few days. It’s always good to be home, surf your homebreak, see your friends, eat mom’s food ect. The lighthouse is one of Mossel Bay’s iconic landmarks….. Home is good………
Some interesting wall paintings on some wall somewhere near Copacabana in Rio De Jinerio in Brazil
Right now I am on my way to Flrionopolas from Saquarema…. While on my laptop I found these shots of me and Matt Bromley cruising through Kuta, Bali circa July 2007. Good times! Thanks Jason for taking photo’s…..
To all the “nay-sayers” who said that Africa will not be ready…..sorry boys…..our stadiums are ready, the crowds are ready, the players are ready……..BRING IT ON……..the greatest show on earth!!! Soccer mania has gripped the fans here in Brazil and they believe the golden cup belongs to them.
Thanks to my dad’s friend, Gerhard Steenkamp, for the photo’s. He is one of the lucky few who will be covering the games…..best seat in the house.
Guarda Vidas……..Who even knows what that means? I just thought it was a really cool looking shack on the beach here in Brazil…. Notice the weather? Not all sunshine and girls in minimal clothing cruising around… Oh well, better than school or work!?
Andrew Doheny is from Newport, Southern California, USA. I think he and Kolohe Andino are America’s best juniors at the moment. He has always had amazing contest results, but took 2009 off from competition, honed some new skills and came back stronger than ever taking out the Oakley Pro Junior at one of the world’s most high performance waves, Lower Trestles. He rips!
He looks like quite a funny guy too – in the photo above he went surfing with his phone and wallet in Hawaii….. Check out more of what he gets up to at 3slobs.com
Saquarema, Brazil. I am here for a 6* WQS event. The waves aren’t as good as in the photo, but it’s still quite fun…..the water is so much warmer than the two previous events (Tasmania, Scotland)…will probably start tomorrow.
I’m on my way to Itauna, Saquarema near Rio de Janeiro in Brazil for a 6* mens event. Oakley hooked myself and Chad up with some very “PRIME” accommodation right on the beach….saweeeet.
We’re leaving Saffa with swell lines stacked on the horizon….I’m sure everybody is going to score some amazing surf in the next week……enjoy !!
My neighbour from George looks unbeatable this year. She started off by winning the Grom Search World’s at Bell’s in Australia then the Billabong in Natal and followed that up with winning the Oakley at Port Alfred in fine style……way to go !!!
Ryan, Matt, Presstick and Shawn
Brendon and Thomas lunch..
Jacob, scoring a barrel during the Airshow…..go figure !!
Not a good spot to stall your engine !!!
Thomas, Chad, Devin and Kyle
Some Oakley Pro Junior action. I ended up winning the event for the third year in a row. Not much else to say, I’m exstatic!! Thanks to Matt and Jacob for the ride up the beach. Check out the video’s at oakleyprojunior.com
