Ke11y...the Legend!

If you've been following the ASP world tour you'll know that Kelly Slater has just been crowned 11th time World Champ...amazing achievement that makes him one of the sporting greats, and as if to stamp his mark on it he pulled off an insane tube ride just after the final hooter in San Fran. yesterday... check out the very last replay in R4 H2 on: ...legend!

Back Home

Back from Portugal....bit of a mixture of surf during the back end of the trip. A few more pictures in the Gallery now. Had a great time and desperate to get back and check out some more spots!

Portugal So Far...

What can i say!....sunshine...warm water....great hospitality....i might just stay here! I had great waves at Santa Cruz the first few days. Then a quick trip down to the Algarve for a storm swell and scored a small but very fun beach pound at a quiet little spot on the south coast (check out teh gallery...i only broke one fin!). Back up in Santa Cruz now but everything's pretty much maxed out. Been playing with some ideas and shapes with Bruno (watertech shaper)...very excited! watch this space!

Charging The ONA

2-3ft Perfection!

I'll admit i struggled to get up this morning...Yorkshire drizzle and aching body after yesterday's battering. Glad i did though as my local spot was 2-3ft of perfection. Quite hard to pull into the small barrels but made a few on the inside followed by a really nice wall. Only hit the bottom once!

Belly of the Beast!

Yesterday was massive with some really heavy breaks on the reefs! Managed to get some real chargers....the ONA is so fast down the line it's unreal. 6hours of fun wasn't without it's carnage though! Broke my camera mount and had 2 very gnarly wipeouts...amazed i didn't snap the boat or my back! Got a few shots but this thought i'd put this one up quickly before i head out this morning. Much smaller today but hoping to find something :-)

The new swell started to kick in last night, but was accompanied by heavy showers and thunder storms. Managed to get inside a rainbow though, even if the barrels were a bit elusive! Cleaning up for tomorrow!

Swell on it's way!

Looks like a good swell developing up north. If the wind goes offshore this week there could be some great waves about! :-)

Searching for the green room!

Summer's here and after a 6 month lull we've had some good swells in the last few weeks. With the summer holiday fast approaching and the GoPro camera in hand i'm hunting for a classic 'green room' shot. There's nothing like tucking in and feeling the lip throw out above your head as you charge the barrel and hopefully find the exit! I'm a long way from that perfect shot but despite a slight onshore wind, the small swell was dredging quite nicely on a local sandbar. (Couple of shots below to get you inspired).
