Happy New Year

Happy New Year indeed!
I would like to wish everyone a great new year and hope you got in amongst the fun so far.
Its been the best start to 09 I could have imagined with light off-shores for weeks on end.
It is now an all out storm only a week after those amazing day's,so to make me feel better I have thrown a few shot's together. Lets hope these winds chill again and the let the fun start all over again.

Happy times
The old launch! its like a small military operation
Tom DH new board went amazing 
The joy's of jet ski power

Ireland doing her best to trick people into thinking its Indo

Winter frustation
Lovely wave pity about the waterfall.

The big man needs a lot more than that to get him excited,just chilling
Me old wagon
Sweet corner
There was a lot of this which is not so nice when its sub zero.

What we have been waiting for.

NEWS: Its all systems go for the new year and our new Relentless vid.
They have loaned us a pimp Land Rover Defender which has been the biggest lifesaver already.
We have got "the KAT" Andy Lawrence our filmer over full time for next few months documenting anything and everything that goes down.
So lets hope the swells be good to us all.

Get well soon Pete see you in the water.

The Desert

The crew.

When the weather turned on us down in Margaret River,our little crew of lucky travelers headed north to avoid the bad weather of the storms and take advantage of them at the same time.

Tomb stones.

Gnarrloo is the best place I have yet to travel to.
Its a heavy slabing long left,it is heaven for me.

You do have to pay your dues to be there. Its almost a twenty hour drive to start off with.
Then you have the lovely roads which make you loose your mind they are so bumpy.
Everything is consonantly covered in red dirt.You get fried during the day but then freeze at night.
But for me that is what makes the place so special. You and everyone else who has made the mission really appreciate the place after what we all have went through to get there.
Good times


The people who head north into the desert are quite often very interesting people,as nobody is there for the image its all about the waves and just chilling in the sand.
You get to see all sorts,family's on there winter retreat,strange old men who dont seem to have anything else for doing and just love been a hard core Ozzy out in the dirt.Pro surfers are always passing through on swells.It is really cool out there as being a pro surfer means very little in the desert.Everyone is in the same boat.Taj and Ry and there mates turned up and you would think they would just take over but it didnt work like that which is really cool.It comes down to the true reasons for surfing,if you want a peace of it nobody is really going to stop you. 
Lots and lots of sand

Speedie section
lovely wave
I didnt make this one,I was close but it ate me up in the end
Lowey chilled in a heavy spot as usual,I was on the inside getting it on the head.
Koby turned up for a couple of days.

Super fun Tombies
