Glen Halls Bucks

Just had to give this one a mention, Glen Hall has come out of the woodwork to make the final of the Nike Lowers pro at Trestles this week being beaten only by Brazilian Superstar Gabriel Medina. This would obviously be a huge result for Micro who has kept the dream alive of his pro surfing career. Glen Hall now a tour veteran could be eyeing off his maiden world tour berth with a few more big results!

Hey Crew, the Nike 6.0 Lower trestles pro Live stream will start tonight, on checking the website, the report is that the waves are 4-6ft so a big start should be expected! Check out the video i have posted of last years contest where Miguel Pupo took the honours. One of the funnest high performance beach breaks in the world, the contests at Lowers are truly remarkable to watch, with crazy punts and massive turns going down every heat. So if you can muster up the energy to stay up late night it could be well worth it. Enjoy!

Wayne Deane Scatters MP's Ashes at Kirra

As you probably already know Surfing Great Micheal Peterson passed away from a heart attack on the Gold Coast recently. Yesterday in a fitting tribute, pro surfers including Mick Fanning and Kelly Slater were part of a paddle out at Kirra Beach to scatter MP's ashes.

Another successful year at Bells and another winner! This time a deserved Mick Fanning came away with the win. Check out the video of the final day courtesy of rip curl! Watch the air that Kelly does if you havent already seen it, keeping in mind that he was being comboed by Fanning at thi9s stage and basically needed something upwards of a 9.5 to keep the game alive he definitely did that!

Here are a few photos I snapped over the last few days of Paul Fisher and Heath Walker out the front of my pad! Waves were super fun and I was bummed cause I had just hurt my shoulder again, so I got behind the lens of my chick's new camera and got some cool shots. Definitely not as fun being the guy taking photos compared to the guy being shot, but still better than sitting around watching TV and nursing an injury!

Hey Crew, hope you have all been getting some waves before summer
Leaves us entirely for another year! For all those in Vicco I'm sure your
all loosing it at the thought of another round of madness to see who will
be the one to ring that historic Bell in 2012! I will touch on all this in a later blog,
but today i would like to ask you all, have you ever taken
your freedom of movement for granted? Mad that you didn't have a good
surf? Annoyed that your legs were sore after a game of football so it
made it a little painful to walk?

In a time when the economy is rubbish, even though governments tell us otherwise and companies are forced to send there manufacturing offshore to keep up with competition and in turn not go broke, you can rest assured that TWS is a full supporter of Aussie products and brands with a story behind them not just a two bob, fly by night, cash cow!

Bottle  n Sedz

Mullaghmore Tow session

After the famous Tow session at Teahupoo in 2011, it was going to be hard for a tow session to ever rival waves that heavy for a long time coming, but it seems a bunch of crazy guys at a wave in Ireland called Mullaghmore, have come pretty close. It might not be as wide and as brutal as Chopes, but remember these guys are dealing with the freezing cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean :)

What a weekend in the surfing world, Taj Burrow starts the year as the frontrunner for the world title and shouts a bucketload of beer! The waves weren't amazing but luckily the rain held off, the ladies were still able to parade around and everybody was able to have a bit of fun in the sun before heading to Komune at Coolangatta for the afternoon to party the night away and celebrate Burrows win and just another successful Quiksilver Pro all round!
