Hot as hell today where i am in QLD definitely not complaining, the sun's out and we are ready to roll into the silly season! Slater has got another title and there is only pipe to go so rather than analyse something that we have a fair idea of where it's headed, how bout i show you guys a little video of Stuey Kennedy riding his shaper Al Emery's boards, it's good old fashion rail to rail with a bit of flair thrown in to keep the new school frothing.

In fun conditions on San Francisco's ocean beach, Kelly Slater has won his 11th world title in the 3rd round against Aussie Daniel Ross in what was a great heat, that Kelly was pushed and beaten until the final minutes. It's capped pf a great year for Slater, in which by this stage we all new he was going to do it, but seeing it happen is still special and unbelievable all at the same time.

Hey World,

Hope you are all smiling, if not well snap out of it because life’s too short.

So a few weeks ago I had an amazing experience that open my eyes and put life back in perspective for me. This single hour touched my heart and I wish to share it with you all.

Barney Miller, a good friend of mine for the past 5-6 years. Was in a horrific car accident about 12 years ago, he is now a quadriplegic and in a wheel chair. He was also told that he would never breath without the assistance of a machine, never to use his right arm and ultimately never to be able to walk again.

The Quiksilver Pro France has been going on the last few days, the usual suspects have been getting through, although a wave starved heat saw Mick Fanning exit early against tour veteran Taylor Knox! It just goes to show that there are no walk throughs on this tour anymore!
