Had a surf with Ricky, Royden and Chad the other day. It was rainy and the light was really bad, therefore only 2 shots were usable……
A little restaurant behind the contest site, where I’m sure my mom would’ve spent a lot of time and Euro…..
A room with a view. The little orange and red dot’s are my wetsuits. That was THE spot. But that is all behind us, we did an 11hour drive and are now in Pantin, Spain….
Did some sight-seeing around Lacanau with the boys. Checked out a church and a graveyard…… Cultural experience to the max.
Having a coffee and a croissant (French staple food) with Brendon and Rudy
Rudy was ripping today… He’s still going in the event.
I was frothing for my heat in the fun conditions and I ended up making it, looking forward to tomorrow, it’s looking good.
After the Azores 6*Prime, which was cancelled due to no waves, we had a little stop-over in the picturesque Lisbon or Lisboa as the Portuguese call it, on our way to Lacanau, which is also dead flat (sad face)…..
Some shot’s of my time in the Azores so far.
Kolohe Andino is the world’s best 16 year old surfer, no doubt! He’s got it all – contest results, movie sections, airs, barrel riding, amazing sponsors and a good support team……
Recently checked out this site, http://istillshootfilm.org/ It’s really amazing!! Some people are just really talented with a camera…..
Yesterday was Woman’s Day in South Africa. Happy woman’s day to my aunt’s, gran’s, female friend’s and my two favourites: my mom and Adele….
The US Open is the richest event is surfing. It offers $100 000 for the mens winner and $50 000 for the womens winner and it also has a mens junior and a womens junior. It also offers massive 6*Prime ratings points and also has the biggest crowds of any event….
Congratulations to Huntington’s very own Brett Simpson for taking it out 2 years in a row!
Brett Simpson was a standout all event….
Jordy Smith banked yet another massive result, with a runner-up finish…..
The crowds were crazy, as always….
Carrisa Moore took out the $50 000 womens division….
Evan Giesleman is having an amazing year, and took out the mens juniors, winning America’s junior series in the process…..
Sage Erickson took out the highly competitive womens junior…..
Some recent photo’s I took with my Diana F+

Had a really fun surf with my two good friends on my last day in the Mother City. I’m home now trying some new boards and getting amped for Europe!!!
My good friends Peppi and Muller.
Some fun peaks at Derdesteen.
