I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t stinging a little after missing out on a second Bells Title. I have to give props to Kelly though. He pulled some freakish gear in the final and did it all with a busted foot.

I wanna also send a shout-out to all the fans who travelled all over Vic to watch the event unfold. It was a marathon event and a big effort from the spectators that made the journey. The support was amazing and it definitely helped me on the way to the final.

The second placing got me a mini Bell trophy and puts me into fifth position on the World Title ratings, which I feel better about after having a bit of a shocker in the first event. I’m in Panama with the Reef team now, from there I’ll head to Brazil for stop three of the tour. Can’t wait.

Got more sun then your average kid today in Panama shooting for the new reef campaign
