Hi All,

Long time no blog. I’ve been having way too much fun to sit down and write but I did find a little time so here we go …

Christmas and the New Year at home is all about summer and chillin’ out. The weather is all-time, waves not so good but I was happy to forget about surfing for a while.

Christmas with the family and New Year’s Eve was great but my fun was New Year’s Day, I had a dress-up ping pong cocktail party for those of my friends who could back up after a big New Year’s Eve.

First to arrive was Clouse (Jarred Howse) and the bloody marys started from there. After hours of different cocktails the ping pong started up, and I could go into the ding dong battles of epic proportion but I lost first round and was back on the couch crying into my bloody mary so I’m not giving anyone else glory. (Sorry Bruns, u did smash us all).

After the New Year I was off on holiday to Thailand! Yep, no waves there either and I didn’t mind. Still had a sore knee so was perfect to rest and sink a few more cocktails. Some amazing places there and the food was all time. Tried so hard to not put on weight but came home a little over fighting weight, hahaha.


The elephant that helped me propose.

I also proposed to my girlfriend, which was the highlight of the trip. She never saw it coming and thankfully said “YES”.

Home now and time to get ready for the start of the tour, the feet are getting itchy to surf my brains out which is great. Got the competitive juices flowing with the state Surftag team bout and, yes, The Bronte Blue Ducks took it out.

Such a fun event — we had to surf the trials and ended up winning the whole thing, not only that, we won every heat!!!

Well, I’m done. I never look at my computer this long. My eyes are getting weird!

Seeya on the Goldie,

– Whits
