It’s been awhile since my last blog. Had been on the road for over a month, in the States, France and Spain. Had a great time in America, got hooked up with a new major sponsor, Mada; and also a slick footwear sponsor, Ocean Minded.

So I’m pretty happy to be sponsored again and with such rad companies, it had been seven months with out one. I didn’t get to repeat at Trestles but that’s all good, next year might be my year again.
Then I flew straight from the States to France which was fun as always. I didn’t do as well as I would have liked in the comp but I got to surf this river wave that was so fun. Check it out by (clicking here).
There was like 6 sections on it — 2 rights and 4 lefts. We had to chase the wave down the river in a little tinny and jump in, surf a section then jump back in again and fly down to the next one. It was so fun, a bit better then the barge wave I caught a few years ago.

Since I’ve been back in Australia, have been back home up to North Stradbroke Island for the Straddie Assault, more on that later, but you can find Parko’s version of events by (clicking here).
I’m out. Talk to you soon.
