So I have been slacking on posting anything for a while, simply because I've been a slave to my job for the past few weeks, what with my promotion and all... But hey I get paid overtime, work at the beach and mingle with VS models, movie stars, Arab royalty and billionaire pharmaceutical moguls. No complaints.
There have been a lot of exciting events in the world over the past couple weeks, so I put together a little photo montage of the important ones.... namely getting a new set of H3-Nexus fins (which I'm told will make me surf better), getting a new seat cover for the motorcycle, installing a new carburetor that nearly caused the bike to explode, Parko scoring a perfect-10 for the win in the final seconds of the Bells Beach Contest, Dane Reynold's print& fold model, scoring a new pair of fold-able Steve McQueen style Persol shades, some epic barrels in West Oz for Taj & Jay and a mini-surfless-vacation to Palm Springs.
The day the good lord madeth the Taco. Which is why, on the 2nd day of the week, we commemorate the creation of the holiest of holy gifts by ceremoniously gorging ourselves on pounds of marinated, finely chopped steak, cooked slowly over an open flame, along with the ritual consumption of Latin America's finest barley based brewed beverages... Just like Jesus did on Taco Tuesday thousands of years ago.
Only this time we took turns riding around on the trusty steed, loudly spewing thick clouds of smoke (and exhaust) as the beast struggled to haul tandem teams up and down the street with all 90CCs of her might motor.
TOM Curren leads the latest Rip Curl Tip 2 Tip Search mission to the Seven Ghosts in Indonesia and into the first legitimate river bore barrels in history.
On Sunday, March 20, after a few test runs to figure out the initial Seven Ghosts tidal pulses, the crew moved into a prime location over the best sand banks on the river and prepared to whip each other into history. With cameras rolling from the skis, zodiacs and helicopter, Curren faded into a growing 6-foot (2m) left-hander, backdoored its folding lip and was spit out to the cheers of the 15-man Search crew intently watching nearby. It was undoubtedly the first legitimate river bore barrel to be made in history.

Travel, exploration and pushing outside the box, off the map and into the unknown make for a life truly worth living. I dream of a journey like this.
In 2010, two Australian surfers travelled 30,000 kilometers down the West Coast of Africa. They surfed in Morocco, Western Sahara, Senegal, Liberia, Angola, Namibia and South Africa. "Thirty Thousand" documents the journey and the waves. The movie comes out mid-2011.
