I have finally got around to putting together the footage from Bali. Theres isn’t too much but it gives a flavour of the place.
Another day of painting and convalescing from my recent battle with manflu (a very serious form I might add). Its a bit of a stinker that I was (very, very) ill as the surf has jumped up again. Some absolutely beautiful waves were coming through this morning. You’d think it was summer if it weren’t for the temperature – clear blue skies, overhead surf with light sea breezes.
Meanwhile at the Quik Pro in Australia Slater has been romping through his heats. He is still the best there is even at 40 years old. Every time I think that he has pushed surfing as far as it can go he comes along and breaks another new boundary.
After 10 world titles his new goal? To win the title again but by only using one board. A mind boggling feat when you consider the different types of waves and surf that he will come up against in the next year. I doubt that there will be too many people betting against him doing it though.
Speaking of the Quik Pro they are playing some awesome tunes on the ‘Heats on Demand’ section of the website. Check out this tune.
