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.

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.

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
