FROM THE INDIAN TO THE PACIFIC

Well, I have had a pretty full-on couple of weeks since my last blog …

Balinese groms, always stoked.

In Bali I helped out the local boardriders club run their grommet contest which was pretty fun and they seemed to be really stoked to have me judge the whole day.

We are well and truly into Movember and I have been watering my Mo every day but there isn’t much to show for it.

I’m hoping to end up like these two dudes by the end of the month.

After the weekend it was back to Yallingup for a good friend’s wedding. Everyone loves a wedding, the bummer was I had to get up at 6:30 the next morning and head off to Hawaii because I’m on the alternate list for the WQS events and I have to be there first heat to put my name in and hope someone doesn’t show up.
How’s this for some airline damage for your surfboard. this is the board I beat Andy with in the Quiksilver Pro earlier this  year. I’m pretty devastated. Life will go on!!!

Not real cool, because this will be my last season competing in Hawaii and I’m not even sure if I’m going to get in the events. I have had a pretty good run I guess in Hawaii. I think this will be my 18th season going to Hawaii and in that time I have had two 3rd place finishes at Haleiwa , have won Sunset twice, and the big one in 1998 winning the Pipe Masters. So the place has been good to me.

Well. I’m on my way to Hawaii so stay turned for how I hit the golf ball. Also, to answer a few of your comments from my last blog:

1 “thats a huge move jake! would want to be for a good/great cause…not many would take the risk of “bali” verses yals..? hope it works out great for ya” – Comment by brownie

I love living in Yallingup and only plan to live in Bali for a couple
of years so I will always be coming back to the house on the hill.

2. “Snake that looks like you are going away from the goals, so do they keep you permanently in the back pocket??? Bummer, ’cause l heard Judd left for the Magpies so there’s a spot up for grabs” -Comment by Kevin Sheedy

And to that Magpie supporter, I would never play AFL for the pies not
in a million years. Hahahaha.

3. “What’s Caangu like this time of year, Snake?” Comment by Anon.

Well, it’s getting really hot at the moment and the rainy season has just
started so it’s not really the best time of year but always good to go and
have a look at somewhere new.
