Gunfire Interview..

screen-capture-83

Well... not much going on over here at the moment so thought i'd link through to an Interview that Beno from Gunfire Images did with me the other week. Also should mention if your over in Oz and want some pics doing...  especially in Gero...  he's the man to speak to. He's really sorted me out this year and has taken some cool shots...  especially the ones from the jetski (I mean who wants to be swimming over here!) haha... Well he's a top bloke so give him a shout...  Just dont mention the Ledge to Lancelin Race and the fact he got beaten by his Misses!!!!  (Sorry mate it just slipped...

For the first time in a long time i'm done something a bit different from my usual winter training. Instead of going to South Africa this winter..  i've come to Australia...  but no matter where I go in the world, even when driving in the middle of nowhere..  you just can't get away from him!!! hahaha...

Probably the Best Trophy ever!!

Well it was a few weeks ago now.. but before the Margret river event I had a comp in Greenhead. Greenhead is a top spot and very windy, its about an hour and a bit south of Gero... Well i say windy... its usually very windy but for the comp it was 5.3 weather... typical really! Still.... it was a top comp and they managed to get through all fleets. All the judging is done from a fishing boat out on the reef which was cool..  although even with it being small it didn't half make the boat move around a bit. (I did a bit of judging for the masters heats and i can safely say i dont think...

Margret River Comp

After tweaking my ankle the other day i really didn't think i was going to go..  but with the forecast looking good (Well biggish) and with me not having sailed Margs yet, i knew i really had to go down and at least see what all the fuss was about. I just had my fingers crossed my ankle would be ok... Long story short... top weekend and really fun event...   Ankle wasn't great but after a quick session with Serge and his heeling hands and downing a shitload of pain killers it was good to go. The swell was pretty confused..  which was similar to me really...as from the beach it looked...

Esperance.. Awesome!!! (But a slight injury.. video included)

9 mile

Ok, ok..  i know i have a new website..  but its kind of hard to update things over here when your staying in the middle of nowhere..  especially with no power and with the local Macy D's not welcoming to back packers!! ...I still have loads to update on stuff that happened a while ago but its going to have to wait.. Anyway..  i've just come back from a wicked week in Esperance with wind, waves everyday and a couple of good surfs...  mostly 5m to 4.7 down the line riding at '9 miles beach' (So called as its nine mile from esperance.. makes sense) couple of sessions at 4 mile (yes, you've...
