Invert to backflip at Fronton this arvo. Woke up at 1pm, drove here and then this happened.Weird. I love this place
Barbosa House and Mountain top sunset.
Been lucky enough to shack up at Ale Barbosa’s house during my stay here on Gran Canaria, the man is a legend! Yesterday, after 2 surfs in the bluest water you can possibly imagine, Ale and his mates took us up into the mountains of Gran Can. Its like a different world up there compared to the vibey city of Las Palmas (check the view from our balcony) , people are living simple lifes...

IBAA top 16
Logged on Facebook this morning to see Sam Bennets Ma, Margo had posted up the final standings on the IBA Australasia tour. Dave Winchester took out the tour with Novy Falling JUST short, looked like it really came down to the wire. Anyway, was surprised to see I finished the year in 13th after missing the last 3 events. Stoked, as this means I will have a higher start on next years Oz pro tour...
Asta la Vista baby
Pretty sure the title of this post is Spanish, even if its not, the basic idea remains. Im leaving! Tommorow at midday il board the first in a series ( yes, 2 hours, 11, 3 and another 2 hour trek) of flights before touching down on Gran Canaria, Spain on friday afternoon. I am armed with 3 epic steeds courtesy of Turbo, some rubber protection (from the reef, sicko’s) from the boys at Zion,...
Busy White Boy PT.4 - Caves Cranks, again.
About 1 minute after this shot was taken a fairly large Great White swam through the lineup clearing it within seconds, luckily I was already on the beach peeing on my arm to ease the pain of a Jellyfish sting. About an hour after this shot was taken I was back out there until I couldnt see anymore. Flying to Canaries on Thursday for 33 days. I am excited to say the least! Will keep you all...
Busy White Boy PT.3 - Grand Flavour Summer 10/11
Arrived home on saturday evening to find that Christmas had come early and Chaddy J from GrandFlavour had fully decked me out in the latest GF range.

The qaulity is unsurpassed and everything from the fit to the design is sure to make girls weak at the knees, take a look at www.grandflavour.com . The boys at GF...

Busy white boy PT. 1 - IBA el Fronton Invitational
Ok so I have known about this for a few weeks, but here is the official press release aswell as a sweet image of the mental wave. This a career highlight for sure, and I am going to go so hard in this one! Massive money, but for me its about so much more. Everyone is going to be balls to the wall to show the world what bodyboarding really is. HELLS YEAHS. The 2010 IBA El Fronton Invitational...
Life has been pretty fast paced this year, wow. Since coming 3rd in the Pipeline Pro in feb this year its been a non - stop rollercoaster ride through 7 different countries. I have spent over 150 hours in Airplanes so far, and thats excluding layovers. Turbo Bodyboards have been funding my dream since day 1, providing me with the kind of support I never knew existed and exposure to boot. Since...
NO LIMITS, bad move.
Looks good doesnt it? dish out your pink lion ( equivalent to around $8 ), and dig in. After the first plate you get that fire in your eyes and wave your arm around like a lunatic to attract the attention of your waitress and in this case, provider. After 4 plates and 5 cokes later , I strongly recommend anyone close to a wimpy goes and gives this smashing deal a go. Look how stoked we are!
All Hallows Eve.
My good mate Simon Heale hooked me up these images of myself out my favourite wave Caves on Halloween!
