There is a lot I will miss being on the @wsl tour - surfing perfect Jbay- traveling with my family and good friends- but I still know I’m ready to leave it. Today was just another one for my memory bank! 📷 @tallteef ✌️🙏 @bourezmichel always great to surf with brother! 🤙
The first time I went to J-Bay was 19 years ago. I was just a kid back then. I’d just finished last in a contest in Reunion, turned up at J-Bay with a toothache, but then got my first glimpse of the wave and the pain went away. It was six foot and perfect from Boneyards to Impossibles, I paddled out through the keyhole, caught my first wave and that was it. I was gone. I lost my mind. Next thing I was standing there on stage holding the trophy, not sure what had just happened, but I knew I’d found my second home. This is where it all started for me on tour, and that’s why I wanted to be here in J-Bay to let you know that this will be my last year on tour. The Pipe Masters in December will be my last event. The fire just hasn’t been there for a while now and I never want to surf without it, so it’s time to go look for it somewhere else. The tour has given me so much. So many memories, so many friends, the chance for my kids to see the world, but it’s time to move on to the next chapter. That means one last lap of the tour and I can’t wait to catch up with a lot of old friends and get a few waves along the way… starting this week at J-Bay.
Jbay a few years ago.. Gee I love this place- we just arrived and can’t wait to see it pumping again #itsonlikedonkeykong 👍😜
As a young surfer- Surfing magazines were my bible.. I begged my parents to buy the latest edition and I read and studied them back to front- my bedroom and school books were covered in them.. All these years later to see the best wave I have EVER surfed at my local on the cover of @surfer_magazine is truly everything a young me could never have believed would happen.. I’m so honoured to feature in the BIG issue of surfer mag, Big thanks to @surfer_magazine@todprod@grantellis1 📷 @corey_wilson and of course @mfanno@ottz16 🙏
Big happy birthday wishes to this legend of a mate!! Happy birthday @mfanno love ya mate! 🍻✌️
