Foam Symmetry

Wow I really have been super slack on the post front! Lots has been happening though. In between organising Little Em's and my wedding, I've been getting to know two new shred sticks: a thruster and a purple twin keel. Both are really doing me up a treat.

Also I was fortunate enough to score some sweet pics in the first edition of Foam Symmetry Magazine. Cheers guys. It should be hitting shelves near you at the moment so get on down to your local and score yourself some new surf froth material.

For ever ever

On Saturday night I took a knee and a gamble and asked Little Em if she would like to spend the rest of her life with me. I'd planned on asking her before the end of the year but I wasn't sure how. People had told me in the past that when you propose, make it big because you only get one chance. I had been trying to think of the perfect way propose that would be romantic, memorable and "big" but all the ideas just seemed too cliched and not quite us. 

However last Saturday night provided the perfect opportunity to ask my lady friend the big question. We were sitting on the headland devouring our fish and chippies and were staring up at the sky spotting constellations, satellites and the odd UFO. The moon had lit up the ocean and we could hear the sound of the ocean crashing up against the rocks. I knew this was it.

I asked her to stand up so I could straighten the blanket, (that of course didn't need straightening at all). I took a knee and I let my heart do the talking. Lil Em paused for a moment and said "can I tell you on Monday?"... Nah just joking! 

I asked her if she'd marry me and she replied "Yes please".

Love you Em.

The Missus' Blog

A little while ago I convinced Little Em to start a blog for her health food shop Essential Health. She's wasn't too keen at first but now she's all over it like a rash (like the ones she helps people out with at work).

For example, Little Em's parentals emailed through some photos from their travels and I mentioned that I wanted to blog about it when I got home from work today. Before I knew it, the blogging enthusiast snavelled up my idea and pipped me to the post.

Coffs coast.

I finished my exams a week ago today...yew yew. Since then I've been down on the Coffs coast hanging with Little Em, my fam and trying to chase down a few uncrowded peelers. The pic above was taken by my good mate Tom at my favorite beachy to log in Coffs. Check out more pics from this day here.

Done and dusted!

 Yesterday marked the day of my very last exam of my sport and exercise science degree. I spent the rest of the day after my exam rehydrating this salty seadog's thirst for some well deserved tip time.

Final exms...

The past two week have been super hectic. I pretty much have been living in the uni library in Lismore getting my nerd on with two friends. We commandeered this space and turned it into the total study haven consisting of laptops, calculators, text books, 5 massive white boards filled with smart stuff and a time-out bean bag in the corner for those moments of close brain explosion.  Due to this there hasn't been to much surf action going down for this salty sea dog but come the 5th of October I will have finished my final exam of my undergraduate degree and I will be looking forward to 3months of sun, surf and good times. bring it on.

father and son...

Over the past 6 days I have been hanging out with a cool bunch of guys (Justin & Jake Bevan, JC, Sage & Chono. We have been chasing and scoring some awesome waves up and down the Far north coast trying to get the odd pic. Above is a pic that I snapped up a few mornings ago of Justin and Jake having a father-son moment.

Krypt- MT5 surf mat = total joy

 DP pic of Greenough
I recently score a bit of money from Miss Gillard the PM to buy myself some new text books for my final year of study. Instead I hoped on down to my local surf shop and scored myself an MT5 surf mat...epic. Initially  my first adventures on the MT5 were pretty ordinary as I couldn't figure out how to get these things to trim as it seems to be totally different from anything I have ever ridden. It seemed kind of slow which was strange because when  I had ever seen anyone else on one they looked like they were going top speed. However two nights ago my local point was really turning it on and looked perfect for a mat froth. It was crazy, I have never smiled and laughed in a surf session so much in my life. I am definitely hooked, the things are insane and give you such a different perspective. I give the MT5 two thumbs up.
