Spent the day in “Slaapstad”……a haircut, an interview with Wayne and Ryan for the J’Bay Billabong Pro, hang out with Adele……and catch a flight to London, then Lisbon, then the Quik Pro 6*Prime in Ericeira
One day on our recent boat trip, I decided to follow Greg Ewing around while he took lifestyle shots on a local island. The locals were really friendly and allowed us to shoot some portrait’s of them. Thanks again for an epic trip Sheriff!
Portugal…… The last stop of the long, grueling, European leg. Staying with good friends Brendon and Rudy…. The waves are kind of fun, but still not great…. I’m still going in the contest which is making me a bit more positive! It’s a sick place, though. I’m enjoying it!
The Bali Bombings on 12 October 2002 were tragic. Everything is fixed, the bombers are killed and imprisoned, but it will probably never be forgotten. Visited the memorial today. The parking lot is where the massive explosion went of at the Sari club, 20 seconds after the one at Paddy’s club. Hopefully this never happens again……
Did a beautiful hairstyle for a very serious portrait at Canngu….. It’s actually a hideous hairstyle and not serious at all……. Having an amazing time in Bali….
Also well done to Julian Wilson for winning the 6* at Arugam Bay last week…. He was the man to beat all week, especially on the day of the finals, when it matters most! A very deserved winner……
Day 1 in Bali has been goooooood. Had 2 really fun surfs at Canngu with Brendon. I really want to get barreled soon, starting to get withdrawals……
A couple random pics of my amazing time in Sri Lanka….
Air at Peanut Farm
Me and Dale chilling in the Love Hut….
Taking out a couple locals on Giggs’ SUP
Another potentially perfect set-up
Gunning for the tube…..
A beautiful sunrise, a surf shot and some elephants are all close by and regular things here in Arugam Bay. The contest is in full swing so we have to mission to surf so most of our time is spent cruising, playing chess and supporting all our mates in their heats….. Oh and happy fathers day to all the dad’s out there!!
A few of the South African boys went and checked a point a little bit south of the main break here at Arugam Bay. The waves were a bit dissmal, but it was still fun to surf with all the guys…..
Dale conquers all possible sunburn with “the mask”
The Royden Bryson backhand sanga….
And Davey Weare
Our hotel is called the Hillton, but it’s definately a fake. There is no chance that Paris and her family built this place or will ever be caught dead spending a night here. It’s still prime location pretty close to the surfspot and the staff is really friendly. The restaurant makes a pretty decent meal too, but not compared to real Hiltton’s…..
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…..
