5th October 2010

Wow, what a week spent up in Durban for SA champs! Was great to see everyone and see that South African bodyboarding is alive and well! Well done to my Boetie for taking out the win he was by far the best rider of the event so a very deserving champion.

Crossing the Divide

2nd September 2010

So Sintra is over and as Boetie has already written Amaury is the 2010 IBA world Champion. Just getting to be there when he won was the most electrifying thing I have ever experienced and as Ben and I carried him up the beach I couldn't help but fight back tears.

Sintra Portugal Pro 2010

26th August 2010

1 South African, 10 Australians and a big house full of girls? Not as debaucherous as it sounds, seems everyone is more focussed on the job at hand - the Sintra pro, which looks like it could just be the title decider for 2010.

Australia 2010

14th August 2010

There is something about flying that always makes one's hair look in top form, or at least that's the case with mine. Yes, I am on another metal bird, this time sealed inside for 14 hours non-stop Sydney-Johannesburg after completing my second winter season on the Australian East Coast.

A cold few days in June

27th June 2010

This week I was given the opportunity to give one of the worlds heaviest waves a proper dig. What I experienced over the past 2 days is pretty indescribable but I'll do my best to put Luna Park into words.

Yes I am still alive and since I last wrote, I've travelled through 3 countries, had a few nights out, been inside many barrels and consumed vast amounts of coffee.

Contest Chronicles v1.5 - Peruvian Inka Challenge

31st May 2010

Frothing on my 3rd place [IBA Peruvian Inka Challenge], but at the same time frustrated as I know I was so close in that Semi with Amaury.

Chilean Cake 3 - How bad do you want it?

22nd May 2010

By now you all most likely know that I was elimanted in my round 5 heat against Amaury, Magno and Novy on Thursday [Arica Chilean Challenge], and to tell you the truth I have been putting off writing this blog for a number of days.

Chilean Cake 2

16th May 2010

Four slices of cheese cake and 2 days later and not much has happened other than some high performance free surfs and rounds 1-3 which has resulted in my round 4 heat looking like this: Damian King, Jacob Romero, a local shredder and me.

Chilean Cake

15th May 2010

You have no idea how much cake I have consumed since arriving in Chile. I have totally let loose after just getting over that heinous bug that plagued us in Brazil and am having the time of my life.

Cape2Rio Ep. 2

4th May 2010

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine Brazil to have waves of this quality, from wedging beachbreaks to shallow, sucky reefbreaks, Brazil really has something for everyone.


30th April 2010

After the Soldiers comp, I hopped on a plane home, for the first time in almost a year ...
