Just got back from an Indo trip with Garret Parkes, Davey Cathels, Caio Ibelli, Thomas Woods, Keanu Asing and Kai Hing aboard the Mangalui. Also photog Swilly, vidoegrapher Shagga and writer Ben Whitmore. Lots of sick times were had! Fun waves! Ice-cold Bintangs! Funny stories! And the worlds greatest sunsets!

Photographer: Craig Kolesky

Profiles of the South African action-sports\surf photographers are on the rise. Check out this “18Seconds” article on Red Bull shooter, Craig Colesky. Although most of the shots featured Jordy, I lucked into one as well – saweet!! “18seconds” is a great Ozzie online magazine and also ran an article on Thomas (Tomatie) Woods – check it out.

Alan van Gysen featured as one of “15 top international Surf Photographers” in Chris Power’s book “Shooting the Curl”.

And the best for last…….Sheriff (Greg Ewing) scored the cover of “Farmers Weekly”…..heh heh, how cool is that !!!!
