Premiers

Hi,its been a busy few weeks on the films front.
We were all up in the big smoke of London town on the 8th of Dec for the big premier of
"The Lives of the Artists" Relentless pulled out all the stops for a big night, and showed their support for the film. It seem to go down really well which was cool.


Here is a photo from the Cornwall premier of "The Lives of the Artists" and our own vid "From Shadows". Everyone was going wild during "From Shadows" which was wicked, its cool because it has all the boys that have been pushing it in Ireland over the last two winters. (if you want to get a copy http://magicseaweed.com/) It was a great night, Mickey and his mates "Strays" played after the films and blew everyone away, great end to the night.

October swells

This autumn had been slow with very little action in September.
Then as soon as Anthony Walsh arrived at the start of October the swell started lighting up.



We had a really exciting week of heavy little slabs, with the last day of the week proper pumpin.
It was what we all had been waiting for. There was a good crew all up for it, and everyone got some bombs. Here is a taste of the week.







Then after that good week of waves I surfed a big lump out at Aileens.
It is really funny how everyone has got really excited by a big fat lump.
It was by far the most boring surf we had all week. I am not being cocky, its just not as interesting or fun as the waves we had been surfing all week.

Cover



This is my first cover for PitPilot, thanks so much to PitPilot and Greg Martin for running it.
This was during our trip in WA, it was a right mission getting on that swell. So I am really happy to see the mission paid off.

Lives of the Artists


Here is a link to www.relentlessenergy.com where theirs the trailer to there new film Lives of the Artists.

It is a very different film that you will be used to seeing, with having snowboarding, surfing and a punk band all on the same vid.

Are part was back at the start of June in Tahiti, it was fairly full on having to make a vid section in a week, there was all lot of pressure to preform but it was good fun all the same.

Mickey is going be sitting in on the edit so hopefully she turns out sweet.
We wait and see.

Handy Cam

This was the end of the winter, myself and Mickey were just messing around.
I am holding the big camera that we used to make PO3 with under my arm like a ruby ball.
It was kind of heavy listen to me shouting at Mick.

Cant wait to do this with a proper camera!

Costa Rica

I was just at the World games in Playa Hermosa Costa Rica.
We did not do so great but it was a fun trip all the same.
There was thirty six countries in the contest.
The USA won it with the French second. Jeremy Flores won the opens.



It was the most people I have ever seen on the beach, crazy!
The whole team got to go zip lining through the rain forest after the contest.
It was great fun and had the best views of the beach below.

Collita! She was the Irish team mascot she lived by our side for the whole trip.
Coolest dog.

Head Butt

Here is my face plant at Gnaraloo. 
It was our last day of the trip, low tide and pumpin.
I had made too really good wave before and was feeling really good and I guess I got a bit too cocky.


I thought I was going to be in a whole pile of crap when it first happened but it worked out ok.

I would like to thank, Dino's dad who picked me up on the ski, his mum for holding my hand through the whole thing. Thank George his family and all the guys in the camp for helping in whatever way they could. And the biggest thanks to Tim the heart/plastic surgeon who stitched me up right there and did a great job. 



I feel lucky with only getting 16 stitches as it was very nearly my eye.
All is good now, got back in the water in two week, just look like bit of a scar face.

I really feel for Tom who is out for four months with his shoulder.
Get better soon brother!

Desert Life

Here is a few shots from life in the desert this summer. Had top trip with my girlfriend and good friends Mick an Riv, besides a little bump on the face which I will tell you later.



I enjoy it up there so much. We had a couple of pumpin swells. But besides that I just love that there is nothing to do up there and your just stuck there. You get to meet all sorts of interesting people. Its a true get away from it all trip.

Its some drive!
