March/April Update

Hey guys,
Once again I've been a bit slack and not kept you updated frequently enough, but this is what I have been up to for the last few months after I got back from Hawaii. First up when I got home, I was straight on the tools at the Quiksilver Pro working the water patrol for the contest. At the end most days after the contest I was able to get a few good sessions in at Burleigh. Which is the best point break in the world!!!

This is a perfect moment to shampoo Kelly Slater, so I took the opportunity.

Straight after the Quiksilver Pro I was up to Noosa to compete in the SUP section of the Noosa Festival of Surf. Noosa this year was pretty exceptional with all five points breaking right through, with some nice little hollow tubes. Noosa for me has been a hard contest to win and I was stoked to finally get a win this year. Keahi De Aboitiz is a 17 year old young gun from Noosa, he surfs really radical and busted an aerial on his stand up in the final. Pretty impressive. I only beat him on the final wave in the last 30 seconds of the contest.

A week later the Malfunction kicked off back down here at Kingscliffe. There were also good conditions for the event, 2-3 foot, clean, peeling, fluffy waves, but fun. Keahi and I met again in the final and this time he came away with the win.

My partner Bianca and I spent some time with my mate Woogie Marsh and his family and the Currumbin Alley. Woogie helped Jamie and I re-rig our four man surfing canoe and we took his kids out for a run and barbequed for the afternoon.

Nice snap of Woogie warming up before the contest.

Jamie steering, me on the armour, Woogie, Taj and Keahi in the front seat.

The last week I have been back surfing burleigh on the short board and getting back into training for the Molokai to Oahu Paddle Board Race.
