After a few weeks of detox my eldest brother ‘s wedding was approaching, so for his Buck’s we took him Go-Carting…

This is the outfit I made him wear…. He wasn’t  as happy about looking like a goose as we were to see him race in it.

I thought I would throw this one in… Just to rub it in to the other ten that finished behind me.. (even though I’m pulling a wrong head)

Well hello … I hope you’ve all been enjoying this approach to the festive season…

The waves here have been pretty big for the last week. In the height of the swell we saw Roy Powers take out the Haleiwa event … Everyone else was either surfing Sunset or small Waimea

We also had Thanksgiving, which gave us an opportunity to test our cooking skills … Here are a few shots I took around our house at Rocky Point;

Here’s the house in all her glory.

I’m currently into my second week on the North Shore … The waves have been pretty sick. It’s been a consistent 3-4′ with one 8’+ plus day at Sunset.

I’m pretty frothing on the fact I get to stay in the one spot for 6 weeks, seeing the last 6 months for me has been non-stop, living from week to week out of a bag … I’m not complaining though, it’s been all-time.

Here are a dozen shots for you to wet your lips …

Everyone keeps on making a big deal about my hat

On the way from Europe to Brazil I had a three-day layover in London which gave me an opportunity to hang out with my mate “Seppy’ and a few other assorted hooligans from Manly. This shot is Sep and I on the London tube… ” Just going to work like everyone else”

If you’re single and want to party, you have to visit the south of Brazil.

I’m Sitting in Qantas club at Sydney airport right now after spending a precious night with my friends and family at home in Manly after being on the road for about two months since J-Bay in July. Since then I’ve been to Huntington Beach in L.A, Japan, Fistral Beach in England, Lacanau and Hossegor in France, A 4 day surf trip in Spain and also a week in Portugal…
Its been an amazing two months full of highs and lows with competing and life in General.

South Africa is an amazing place, the wild life, the waves and the people, I had a great time there other than a bad result in the J-bay event, I found a perfect wave much like the cove at Burliegh But! with no one out!! 4 foot perfection.. On the same day i spent the arvo at Pumba Game park.. It turned out to be one of the best days I can remember…
I the set off for an assault on the WQS.I had a mate from home (Matt Toghil AKA Toggy) come along for the experience. He was great to travel with, Keen to check out the sights, go surfing, and real motivated to train. We had a lot of fun and as a result I ended up with three quarter final results 5th’s and a semi final result 3rd which has put me in a great position on the ASP WQS ratings.

I’m now heading off to Trestles the 6th stop on the Fosters ASP World tour and am hoping for a big result.
Catch ya later

Dayyoof!
