I've been asked to help spread the word about a fellow surfer who's down on her luck & needs an operation that she can't afford. Click here if you're feeling generous & would like to help Mary. Thank you!


Some Basque brothers of mine are working on this mouth watering project called Gastrologging.

My vote for the film of the year, 'Come Hell Or High Water', has its Australian Premiere next Saturday at Patagonia Torquay. Before the screening there's a board swap. Bring your sleds & stoke. Should be a very special night.

Back Beach

This morning's bit of back beach fun was shared with good friends & captured by our mate Tom Woods. Tom's a rad photographer with his finger on the pulse of his local surfing community. He updates daily to his site & it's always worth a look. Tom's also handy with moving images & he & I are having fun collaborating on some work for The Critical Slide Society. Thanks for the shots Tom. Good on you mate.

Bill Wallace

I had the great honour to meet Mr Bill Wallace a couple of weeks back. A true godfather of Australian surfing & a world-class master craftsman, he has been building surfboards since 1942.

Simple Pleasures

It's been a fun summer of bodysurfing in various places up north in the bath warm sea. Photos by Mac Rae.


These boards my good mate Tom Wegener has designed are so much fun to ride. They're a surfboard for everyone, the Volkswegener, a finless surfboard for the people. I can't wait to get one.


A moment of trim on my Paul Joske shaped twelve footer captured by my old mate Mac Rae. It's been such a fun summer surfing myself silly.
