Yeah kids. Wow, feels like I haven’t surfed for months … since my heat at J-Bay I’ve surfed five times I think.

I had stitches in my eye after my heat with Trent. No surf for a week. I went home from there incubating the worst flu of all time. It hit me down south in Tathra and I then passed it on to all my mates down there, (sucked in, ha ha) they were spewin’! Some of them had the week off work, it was real nasty. Kept me out of the surf for 10 days too.

I came good and went training on the Goldy but it was flat like a pancake, so no surf for that week which brings me up to now. I just got out of hospital after having my Surfer’s Ear operated on. Painful op and another two to three weeks out of the water. Tell ya what I’m going to be absolutely frothin’ for Trestles. A break always does ya good.

By the way, how good has the football been? Some crazy games being played coming into finals time. Go the mighty Swans!!! Go the mighty Eels!!!





  1. aren’t you way too young for surfers ear?

    i’m hoping it was because you’ve spent light years longer than the rest of us in the water – and that you’re healed up well and good for trestles.

    a couple of the boys are coming over to see france -lets hope you get some big pits there and upset the top seeds.
