Well, January is always a pretty action-packed and entertaining month for me. I’m sure its much the same for all the boys during their break too. I have had some good times thats for sure.I’ve had three mates come over from Sydney to live-it-up here in the West. It’s been a blur of good times including; New Years Eve, hanging on the beach, surfing, BBQing, drinking, poker, and hanging with girls! All the good stuff that summer is about!

Snake and I just bought a new Yamaha Jet ski and the thing is amazing! We’ve logged quite a few hours already this summer whipping into little waves and just fooling around.

A wine tour that I did with friends was also a huge highlight of my summer. We all dressed up like idiots and toured the famous Margaret River wine region. So much fun sampling all the wine and pretending we were wine connoisseurs – ha! Luckily, one of the ladies drove because things got pretty wild after five wineries, yeew!

We also went to a huge concert called Southbound, which was in a town close to me called Busselton. Crazy. 20 000 people and a bangin’ line up that included; The Presets, Scribe, Basement Jaxx, Hilltop Hoods, Modest Mouse and Wolfmother! So yeah, even more good times! It just never ends!



… Although it did have to come to an end for me. First comp, the Quik Pro starts Feb 27 and that comes around real fricken’ fast! So… I set myself the date of Jan 15 to stop the partying, etc, and put the blinkers on!

I took on a person to do personal training, nutrition and physio. He’ll be cracking the whip until the Gold Coast event, its tough to skip all the festivities but it has to be done. I had a sick time, but now my mind is on getting fit and surfing my best.

On Jan 19-21, I hosted my kids’ surfing comp here in Yallingup. Its called “Taj’s Small Fries” and its the 2nd year we’ve run the event with Billabong and it was a riot!

I think I had just as much fun as the 120 groms that competed, it was unreal!A highlight was watching young local Margaret River grom Creed McTaggart absolutely destroy the under 14s. He scored four waves over nine points, one being a 9.8!

Everyone was ripping, girls and boys. We had prefect surf and the event ran like a dream. So stoked watching all those little grubs thresh around in their over-sized singlets

Well thats almost a wrap for my January. I’m currently training, eating good food and surfing my arse off in preparation for the Goldy. Ok, hope to see you there.

I hope everyone was living it up over the holiday season! Goodtimes.

  2. Its round 3 of the Quick Pro, good luck mate, one better than last year would be nice. Top 10 is always a good thing but how about a title. An Aussie in the number 1 position is something I am hanging out to enter into the stats…
