Chris Leppan, Myself, Matt Hewitt, Dale Staples and Matt Bromley at the SA Surfing Awards. Thanks to Zigzag for an amazing night and congrats to all the winners!
Red Bull x Jordy Smith Nighshift at Northbeach. Flood lights were set up and all the boys were getting whipped in at night. It was pretty crazy to surf in front of such a huge crowd at nigh! Hope I get the chance to do it again next year. Pics by Kolesky.
Last, but not least the Mr Price Pro is on at Ballito. They have only done 9 heats of Rd1 so far, but hopefully the waves pick up and we can get amongst it!!
The Telstra Drug Aware Pro finished almost a week ago, with John Florence winning, comfortably. I have decided to hang around here, because the waves are sick and I really like it here. I would have to say this is my favourite contest of the year! In other unrelated news, the surfing world has lost one of it’s biggest legends, Michael Peterson. RIP
So good to be back in West Aus. It’s definitely my one of my favourite stops on the tour. Frothing for 2 weeks in this joint!
Just found these two photo’s from Bali last year. Can’t wait to go back again! Love that joint….
Late season Hawaii is the best! We have had constant waves for about 6 days now. Although there is a huge swell coming. Like 20/25 feet huge. I’m kinda fearing. It’s been nice to see everyone after the break and catch up with friends from all over the world. We really do have the best job in the world!
It’s time to go to Hawaii! I had a sick week in California and can’t wait to spend more time here through the year! I got a bank account, social security number, looked at cars, got a bicycle, coached with Ian Cairns and surfed a different spot everyday. Good times!
I am not an artist. But Clement de Bruin is. An amazing artist I might add! I dunno if I wanna take the board into the ocean or not. Anyway check out Clement’s sight (clementdebruin.com). You won’t regret it!
This is my new home break. It doesn’t look like much, but it has produced many generations of world class surfers, from Matt Archbold to Kolohe Andino. Hopefully it works some magic on me too…..
