A couple of years ago a bunch of us went on a road trip for some waves and some fun, and we called it the 18Under trip. We scored some fun waves, and had a good time together. Here’s one of the sequences from the trip. Other guys on the trip were Shaun Joubert, Nick Godfrey, Matt Bromley and Brendan Gibbens.
I’ve been traveling and competing in Zarautz, Spain and Azores, Portugal. The waves have been ok, and I have mixed results. Happy with how things are going right now, but one thing you realise when traveling is how good we have it back home. I am totally into being a pro surfer, and supporting my sponsors who have faith in me, but I do miss J-Bay at times…
Back in Nam
One of my favourite waves in the world, Keramas is always a good place to visit. Hard to imagine that it was uncrowded and pretty much secret for so many years. It’s not that far away from the central surfing areas in Bali, and it has only become popular in the last few years, really.
These photos are from a little while ago, when we scored really good waves for an event there.
It’s a perfect right-hand barrel with good sections on it. Usually when you’re in Indo and in particularly in Bali, it’s all about the lefts, so it’s good to hook into a few rights as well.
Over in the UK for the Relentless Boardmasters. It’s small and cold.
The event site – there is a live webcast.
The highlights from the 2011 event.
A little video we made. It’s not the latest, but there are a couple of nice waves on there, mostly in and around my homebreaks.
