No words can really describe the significance of this trip for me. Cobus Bosman took these wonderful film shots whilst we were on the move, so I’ll let these talk. He also took me to this ridiculous slab called The Devils Horn! There’s a 10 page feature in the latest Riptide if your interested.

Jammed at the opening of the corner Gallery. It was a fucking great night!

I feel like I’ve cheated death a couple times in my life thus far. Not just on a bodyboard. I guess it’s just part of the life I wish to lead. Anyways, Keiki was everything you wanted this day. Big wedges unloading onto a shallow bank. Perfect for any squashed frog. Long story short, After ragdolling myself for a couple hours I got unlucky and compressed my spine on a fucking rock, breaking 4 vertebrae and rupturing my kidney. After floundering in the shorey for 20 minutes trying to get my breath back and get some feeling and strength back in my legs I eventually swam into shore. Laid on the beach for an hour and road myself home. I was urinating blood and probably should have gone to hospital. But I opted for my own healing regime consisting of guitar, partying and riding a beater. I also had an art show to organise so I had no plans of slowing down. I dont take pharmaceutical drugs but the hawaiian weed was perfect for the pain. Proven medicine.
So I got home 3 weeks later and my Chiro insisted I got X rays before I got back on the boog. This is how I found out the extent of my injuries. Turns out I’d been defying the odds for the last 3 weeks just being able to stand. So thats that. There were some pretty huge life changing realisations through this ordeal but I’ll spare you such ramble for now. What would take Jo Blogs 6 months to heal has taken me 2 months so I feel nothing but positive energy through this all. Blessed to be a walking man!

Took a video camera to Parklife the other day and left with this.
I have the homies at Pilerats to thank for the good vibes. Thank you.
Dub step was the prominent force this year but I have little faith in that shit, so I dubbed this edit to some old faithfuls – Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix & B.B King. It works…

Just another old fashioned surf trip to Mexico. I’ll let these frames sum up my experience. I pretty much surfed myself silly for 15 days in pursuit of progression and good footage. The good homie, Reid Southall was behind the lens. Here’s a taste! Buenos Tiempos…Siempre!

I just had the driest July in a very long while. I think I surfed a total of 3 times, non of which where on a boogie. Lucky I was in California with an amazing bunch of humans. I couldn’t have asked for a better July to be honest. It put a lot of perspective on my shit and reminded me to focus on other projects. Some times wave riding can put you in a little bubble. All is good when your riding waves all day every day & your troubles tend to vanish as you live this strange dreamlike fantasy. I kinda like my troubles though, they fuel creation. And you can’t live the dream all the time. There’s more lesson’s to be learnt amongst the bullshit. Anyways, I can’t be bothered rambling to much right now as I’m coming off a big Mexico trip & I’m supper jet lagged & Starbucks just got super crowded with yuppies. My thoughts are now elsewhere. I just wanna send some love to the good homies in California! I’m so humbled by there support & passion. Thing’s are looking good for you dudes! Mucho.
We were filming a bunch this trip. Stuff was happening on the daily. I guess this is the byproduct of a month with out waves, a head full of strange ideas & time spent with the Californian homies. Thanks for the hospitality California, I’m blessed with one more week before I head home for the first time in 6 months. Jesus I’m excited about home.
Watch this clip. Good time’s behind the scene’s.
