This year is definitely flying by. January has come and gone, but already some good stuff has gone down. I just finished a solid three-day training camp up at my trainer’s spot in Ballito (north of Durban).

A good mix of boxing/ yoga/ swimming/ gym etc, to get ready for the opener later this month. He’s got me on a really great program for the year, I’m feeling strong and fit and super amped and just really stoked I have such a passionate guy helping me with my campaign for 2009!

I’ve been getting some amazing boards off Elton Fursman so far this year, he’s been a real trooper over the years with all the time and effort he’s put into my career. I owe him big time. We’ve made some slight adjustments to my last year’s specs and the results are feeling great. One really good thing about Elton as a shaper is that if you ask him to do something, he does it. I’ve asked a few shapers over the years to do certain things to boards and you get something else, but he really puts a lot into each of his shapes and the boards speak for themselves.

Another person who’s really been helping me and I couldn’t have achieved half the things I’ve achieved or got to where I’m at right now is my wife Jayde. She’s been such a solid rock in everything I do, been behind me 100% of the way and I really do take my hat off to her for all that she does for me.

Less than three weeks til I’m off to the Goldy … the countdown begins!

One of the best things about surfing a contest at Coolangatta is there will only be a couple of guys in the water at any one time. © Joli

  1. Nice one. What´s your training schedule like?
    Lately I´ve being reading on Bruce Lee and got me motivated.
    Not only the training but also his philosophy.
    I am trying to train in a way that I can keep it up on the road, without depending on gyms.
    Any tips for a surfer travelling…??
    Cheers
