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!

Got to say the last month has been madness! The Breaka pro at Burleigh waltzed in to town and made spectators happy with some great weather and a great performance from Julian Wilson taking out the win! I'm very surprised that this contest is still only a four star! I've heard it's because organizers don't want it taking away from the Quikky pro, if that is the case then i think they need to just stop tweaking and make it a 6 star like it deserves to be! I guess when it boils down Breaka would be rubbing there hands together definitely getting value for money with that one!
