Bells! Wooo! I love this event, cold weather, cold water, Easter eggs and Hells Bells getting a blaring over the Bose system during early mornings at the event! Epic! I arrived here Friday April 30 and have had a few fun surfs at the Bells bowl over the weekend. April 1st was a good day, I got Steds a great April fools. We’re sharing a house that he had booked but I arrived on Friday and he wasn’t arriving til Sunday (April 1).

 Ah, just outside Geelong aint so bad, Steds.

Ah, just outside Geelong aint so bad, Steds.

So … I told him as he was en route Melbourne that our house had been Double-booked and we had to move into a new place. Which wasn’t too much grief for him as he wasn’t here yet.

But as he got off the plane in Melbourne he turned his phone on to see a few horrifying messages!I told him where we were moved was the dirtiest, dingiest, grubbiest little shack ever!

I told him it couldn’t even accommodate all of us, and it was somewhere out near Geelong! (about an hour from Bells). He obviously freaked out and had everyone he knew in the area hunting another house for us.

HAAARRR HAAArR! He called me with the least happy voice I’ve ever heard from him and said “What should we do?’ and I said ‘Do you know today date? Because I’m pretty sure it’s April 1st! Ha, April Fools mate! Our house is sweet!’ … got him good huh!

That’s about it for now.

  3. Congrats on blowing up Bells – see what training does! Next stop world title. Get training again! Its all the Rocky movies put together and you´re Rocky taking on the suckaz! None of the rest of them are committed or really believe they can do it except MF. Or get Tognazzi to whip your ass out of bed each morning. Just like that last wave at Bells its now or never.

    Nice work on the win at Bells.. You need to keep up the flow and put yourself in the running for the title. An Aussie needs to get there this year.
