Final day photo diary...
Its the morning of the finals!
Well at home it is anyway, thats right tonight at 8pm SA time the final day of the 2011 Pipeline pro will be underway! There are still 6 South Africans left in the event and 5 of them will be up in RD 6 so make sure your watching right from the start. Mccarthy and myself have been patiently awaiting our RD7 start and lets just say I am more than ready to surf my heat. I had a great day of...
Future Fist Pumper!
Got to Jump on the Mic with Manny Vargas this week commentating for the Pipe event, next up pumping fists at the end of promo vids!
My man Richard Lornie has this A rating system of all his footage that he accumulates. Its a running Joke between us that he always underscores my waves and I have only bagged a few AAAA’s in my time filming with him. The first day of the Pipe comp I surfed this fun sandbar almost all day inbetween watching my friends heats. It was probably one of the better days of surfing I have had this...

Talking story at the Hawaiian Turbo house about the Turbo 5 limited Edition, the season, my bike and a little bit of surfing thrown in the mix!Enjoy!
All in the name of fun!
Yesterday after shooting the above video at the Turbo house, I hopped the fence, ripped of my shirt and headed straight into a fun game of cricket between 2 of the longest standing competing nations on earth, South Africa and Australia. As you can see by the looks on our faces and Joe Clarkes as he flounders on the outside we were the winners, but it was definitly well contested, especially...
Living the Hawaiian dream!
So about a week or 2 ago, I posted “im back!” with a whole bunch of fresh framies and with excited eyes as I was regaining strength quickly and feeling ready to work as the onslaught of humans descended upon this glorious stretch of coastline. That is unfortunately about the same time as Pipe ceased to break and as im writing it is currently a current riddled sandbar, a mere puddle of...
Turbo and Seamus Makim have just released this new clip of me from my Canary Islands trip at the end of 2010! Hope you enjoy it!
Yesterday Pipe pumped. People are calling it the best its been in 16 years or something, I havent been here that many time so I cant validate that theory although I did see the best wave I have ever laid eyes on yesterday. Here are some framies/shots that Mitch Pearson gave me, 3 of the better waves I got yesterday.
My immune system has failed me miserably.
This picture captures my current vibe perfectly. Been lying in bed for 2 days now, everytime I think I feel better im rudely reminded that im not. Happy this is happening now and not in 2 weeks time when Pipe kicks off. Other than the 30-1 hour I have spent talking to Natasha on skype, my days have been uneventful barring the few trips to the bathroom to spit out Phlegm or urinate/poo. Good...
