Jordy…..some time ago

It was Jordy’s birthday recently, thought I would dig out some old photos. U18 final of the ISA 2006 Worlds in Brazil – what a line-up !! Jeremy, Jordy, Julian…with Julian sneaking the win over Jordy.

Jordy….always more comfortable in the air than everybody.

Pappa Gee, what a LEGEND, loved traveling with him, and he shapes a mean surfboard too….

Contest at D’Bah – Jordy scored 5 perfect 10’s on one day.

Nicky, Chad, Dale, Jordy, Jaco, me and Dane hanging at Bells. Jordy inspired us to travel and compete in Oz…some serious good times !!!

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…
