Azores in Lomo

I took these shots last year with my Lomo Fisheye. Last year the ocean was flat and the weather was nice. This year the weather has been windy and rainy, and there have been waves (which is why I have no photo’s – too busy frothing, surfing and “focusing”)!

Mikey February

Good times on a boat in the Maldives……during the filming of Jason Hearn’s movie “15Below”. Good crew, Woods brothers James and Thomas, Staples brothers Dane and Dale, Nick Godfrey, Brendon Gibbens, Mikey February, myself. Jason did the filming and Alan did the photos for Zigzag.


The World Juniors is in full swing. The waves have been fun, despite a slight blue bottle problem. Bianca Beautendag is in the girls semi’s – a massive result! A few top seeds have also lost so it’s wide open for guys in the running for the title…. Oh, the opening fuction was sick, guys playing didgeridoos…

Santa Cruz

Been in Santa Cruz, California for 2 days now. Been hanging with Brendon and Davey (travel partner for the trip). It’s a really weird place, with odd (to say the least) people, but the wave, Steamer Lane is really fun, which makes me very exited for the contest, the O’niell Coldwater Classic. Oh and it’s cold!!


Bali – Oakley Pro Junior Day 4

Dale spent some quality time in the tube this morning – as he usually does……

I also managed to get barreled. And do a turn. And snap a good board (sad face).

Started off having an early surf at Kerammas today, which was cut a bit short when I was informed I had to surf my round 3 heat – I made it, stoked…. Beyrick surfed an amazing heat, but unfortunately couldn’t get a back-up wave. Chad, Dale and Brendon get to surf their round 3 heats at Kerammas, I’m pretty jealous hahaha…..

These photo’s were taken in the free-surf next to the contest site today at Canggu. Round 1 and half of round 2 has been completed. The waves have been firing. The level of surfing has been sky-high and over all it’s been good to be part of the contest so far. Oh, and all the SA boys are still going which is sick!!!

Figuera da Foz

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!
