Patch Wilson

I sincerely apologise  for my lack of posts and in getting my new site up and going but I promise it wont be long. In the mean time check this little clip of Patch Wilson. Patch hung out with us for three weeks or so and scored a great run of waves. Good work by my brother Kevin who is nailing the camera angles and as always Mickeys skills in putting it together.

Lack of updates

Sorry anyone who has been checking this blog, I have been very slack lately.
I have only just got internet in a new place I am renting, and I am also sorting out a new website at the moment which will have a different style of blog.

There has been lots of waves since coming home but also a lot of stormy conditions. We have had some fun paddle swells but nothing major yet. Hopefully there will be some solid swells soon,  I will try and keep things updated a bit more from now on. Until then enjoy the waves out there.

Whomp Mag

Ben Selway has launched his mag from the internet onto the shelves, keep an eye out for it.

Tahiti cotest!

I was lucky enough to get a spot in the trials this year, but I did not last very long. I was knocked out first heat. I have finally realized that I am not a comp surfer!
I had to get out of Tahiti after that even with good waves around, I just dont belong around contests.
There is an amazing swell coming for the CT event, I would love to be there to surf that swell but not with the whole circus in town. It will be good to watch the big boys finally get some good surf for an event.

Under Teahupoo


I got a call up from my good mate Tom Lowe telling me to come to Bali for the Padang cup. Somehow he got me in. I was buzzin on the idea of surfing perfect Padang. So I get in the comp, the only problem is it wasn't perfect Padang. It was real bad in the morning, I didnt even catch a wave in my heat!! haha. It got much better in the afternoon for the finials. Our mate Anthony Walsh won it in our eyes but due to bad judging he came third. It has been a fun little trip catching up with Tom and Janni and got some good waves besides.

Gnaraloo mission!

The Gnaraloo trip this year was totally different to any other I have been on.
First off our old trusty Land Cruiser died on us, very sad times.
So I had to organise hire car. My mate Koots from Wollongong was keen for the trip so he jumped on board with his mate Mitch. Another mate "Jezza" from the goldie I met in Tahiti was keen as well so he came along for the ride and my brother Kev got the week off work and that made a packed car. It was a big swell but the winds were a bit weird the whole time really.
I still loved it and it was a real funny crew to hang in the desert with. Thanks boys for the good times.
Off to Indo now, will keep you posted. Ferg

Koots tours-Wollongong

After Fiji we went and hung out with my good mate Koots.
Here is a few shots from Koot tours around Wollongong. Had a fun week, few fun waves but more just good times than anything else. Cheers Koots for everything.

So the swell we had in Ulladulla was going straight to Fiji, I had to go. First off I have to say a huge thanks to Analog and Adam for helping me out in getting there and looking after us, could not have done it without that help. I dont really have any photos of the big days as I was surfing but here is a few of fun restaurants man what a fun wave! Check out they have all the good ones.
I only really got one good wave on the big days but it was the wave of my life, so I am still buzzin from it now. Also want to say a big thanks to all the guys I got a chance to surf with over there, it was the best vibe, everyone supporting each other. I feel very lucky to have been apart of that in some way. Thanks everyone for the great times!


Got to spend a few fun days in Ulladulla and catch up with the boys. We had a few good waves as well. Thats Morgs taking the water shot with Mickeys housing. Big thanks to Morgs and Jamie for looking after us, had a great time. Yew
