The final countdown: 2011

2009, brought the heat. 2010, rocked on. 2011 was the final countdown. Really pumped on how the video came out. I listened to this song all 2010/2011 winter thinking about a year end recap to this song. Nate did a super killer job, it’s definitely my new favorite video from him/ drift party. The Golden [...]


Been reading the heroin diaries by Nikki sixx on slow days out here on Namotu. Not as fun and wild as the dirt but it’s not meant to be. Pretty interesting with some good parts. Also has some insight into some of the songs which is cool.


Back to the future

Here’s some random widget surf forecast app I found for the next week in Namotu. Not too pumping but we’ve been getting some fun little waves. Tavarua Surf Report and Forecast

Having a good time. About a third of the way through the trip. Here’s some random photos



I’m leaving for Namotu Fiji today for a month to be a lifeguard and boatman out there. I pretty much get to surf all day. Got boards, a backpack, and a duffle case full of food. Pretty pumped and I’ll have Internet out there to update shit.

Grom abuse

Free hair cuts for the groms on my last trip down to Mex. I’ve been trying to keep the grom spirit alive in myself too lately. Business and growing up sucks.

Alpinestars called me and invited me to do the Katin pro-am surf contest in Huntington Beach this past weekend.
