Car park to Car park

So I've had one of those mornings when you and your mates are so psyched to surf, you have all the boards loaded so that all the bases are covered but it seems that you just keep going from car park to car park. Its now 1:20 and the board shorts still aren't wet. It seems that I've given up as I am now sitting in my girlfriend's health store eating a Byron Bay bliss ball procrastinating about taking the rubbish out......

Hooked up.... TCSS

Today is a great day, I rocked up home this arvo to find myself a strange little package awaiting me. Inside was a bunch of awesome T's and Boardies from the TCSS crew.  Thanks Jim and Suzie and all the crew Im super stoked. 

It feels like summers here.

This morning I caught up with a few buddies (Sage and Harley) for a few fun wedges at a local little corner on the mid north coast. The water recently has been freezing, it must be that up welling effect from the northeasters that have been so consistent lately. I surfed in my short arm steamer and could hardly surf due to over heating as the water temp has come up again, It feels like summer. Harley made the most of these little rights running back into the corner he was truely blowing up.

mid north coast sliders.


Just in case you missed it young Heathy J smashed his way to the final of the Reef pro in Hawaii this morning. Heathy flaired his way through the draw to find himself in the final with fellow Australians Julian Wilson and Joel Parkinson and Hawaiian local Joel Centeio. The conditions weren't your typical Hawaiian perfection as the highest scoreing ride came from Parko at only a 7.5 and a good 15minutes had past before Julian and Heath had even caught a wave. Heath came away with a 4th, Julian 3rd, Centeio 2nd with Parko taking it out.

This is an amazing achievement for the little hippy and was a long time coming. Congratulations bro we are all so proud of you and good luck for the rest of the Triple Crown. Keep ripping and enjoy brother.

epic shit.


I was emailed this today and thought it was well worth the post.

HANALEI, KAUAI, HAWAII - (Nov. 14, 2010) - Hanalei Bay offered a window into heaven today as thousands gathered from around Hawaii and the world to celebrate the life of three-time world surfing champion Andy Irons. At the shore of Andy's cherished home, family, friends, and those whose lives have been touched by the 32-year-old gathered to bid farewell to the surfer, father, brother, son and husband who inspired a generation.

In the embrace of majestic Hanalei, Andy's younger brother Bruce led close to 1,000 friends in a paddle out beyond the rising waves to encircle a double-hull canoe that carried Andy's wife Lyndie, his parents and close friends. On shore, thousands more watched on as Andy's ashes were released into the sea and flowers poured from a helicopter circling above.

At the same time, synchronized tributes were taking place around the world from Australia to Europe, and mainland USA in the greatest outpouring of aloha the surfing world has ever seen. It was a fitting tribute to a young man whose home-grown achievements, passion for life and family, and committed character proved that childhood dreams are worth chasing.

Mahalo to the Irons Family, who opened their arms to share their son with the world and embraced us all today. Mahalo to the community of Hanalei for allowing us to partake in this day and who will continue to support the Irons family for many years to come.
