One of my main men John Abegg took these shots of me while I was painting "Ergh Me Herghdies" for the K-Club Boxing Day show. John is born on the same day as me, but he surfs way better, and has longer hair....at the moment anyway. I love him, not in a gay way. He is an inspiration to me. Find out why at his blog www.johnnyabegg.wordpress.com.
Here's a shot of me taken on the 11th of Jan this year pre-heat at the Burleigh Single Fin contest. Props to ol' Sea Dog Wilba from The Point for the photo and The Sugar Ant (Antoine) for letting me borrow his single fin for the comp.....and Matty Yeates for the last minute leggy plug glassing. Yew!
Here's a couple of shots of The SugarAnt (Antoine) and myself taken by one of my buddy's from SeaSurfboards, Matt Yeates surfing The Monkey's Ass. The Ant is on his new 'SeaWeed' Model and I'm riding one of their 'Sea Biscuit' models. Waves were Pumpernickle!
Here are my 4 miniature (15 x 15cm) pieces from The SeaCell's (www.seasurfboards.com) latest show Xmasea that opened on the 5th of December. Had a hell night, thanks to my man Matt, Paul, DThomas and the people who bought my art and everyone else's!
