Byron Bay

Some people have real talent, like whoever did this to the beach in Byron. So beautiful! I’m so happy I get to experience these amazing places with these amazing people. Now we are back home in Melbourne trying to recover after the roadtrip. After a smashing finish with celebrating Australia Day down in Sydney by Ambers parents house on the Hacko where we went out wakesurfing, playing cricket and cruising around we’ve now slept for like 2 days. I really enjoyed meeting Melissa Marquardt who, in my eyes is one of the gnarliest riders in the world and a huge inspiration when it comes to sick style and winching skills. It turns out she is the nicest and funnest chick to hang out with as well!

Big thanks to Amber and her family for letting us crash on their couch after a full day of partying and to Dean, Scotty, Double Up, Tyrell and everyone elso who made this my best Aussie day ever! (:

All I really needed to know I learned in kindergarden

When we were touring with team Double Up I found this painting in a café in Byron bay. So much wisdom

By Robert Fulghum

“All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarden. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate-school mountain but there in the sandpile at sunday school. These are the things I learned:

Share everything. Play Fair. Don’t hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don’t take things that aren’t yours. Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. Live a balanced life-learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the styrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plat goes up and nobody really knows how or why but we are all like that. Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup -they all die. So do we. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned the biggest woord of all –LOOK. Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitaion. Ecology and politics and equality and sane living. Take any one of those items and extrapolate it into sophisticated adult terms and apply it to your family life or your work or your government or your world and it holds true and clear and firm. Think what a better world it would be if we all – the whole world – had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all Governments had a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess. And it is still true, no matter how old you arewhen you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together

Ci Naji

I was heartbroken today when I found out one of my friends Ci Naji just lost her fight against Cystic Fibrosis. Ci was a real inspiration to any female wakeboarder since she didn’t let her disease stop her from doing anything. After competing for several years for the Irish team she started her own womens board brand when she couldn’t ride anymore. I can’t believe this picture was only taken this summer when we were partying at wakestock. I said I was too hungover to go nuts another night and you made me scowl a Red Bull Vodka while you made the whole camp chant me on. And then I said that your shoes looked so sick and you just pulled them off your feet and gave them too me if I promised to wear them. I am going to miss you so much!

Tara Pyers

Riding cable up here in Bli Bli I’ve been watching Tara Pyers, local rider at Gowake Cable throw it down! She makes me feel like bambi on these rails so I thought I’d share an edit with you to get you as stoked as I get when she rides before me on the cable (:

Team Trip

So the photo shoot trip continues. We’ve driven from Melbourne through lake Eildon, Sydney and Byron Bay up to Bli Bli on the sunny coast. Getting up at 6 am every morning to use the good light to do photos and riding A LOT. My ankle is still pretty sore but with a lot of tape and stretching I’ve actually managed to ride again! So happy to be back on a board! The next few days we will spend at Bli Bli finishing up the shots and filming before doing the 20 hour drive back to Mellie. Luckily we have surf boards on the roof so we’ll be stopping for some surf breaks (:

I can’t show you any of the photo’s we’ve taken since we are riding the 2014 boards for the catalogue and they are super secret but I’m loving the new Blanc Fi on the cable! Maybe if I ask really nicely I can show you some photos by the end of the trip. Don’t forget to like Double Ups Facebook Page here: LINK

There’s a quick update for yah, speak more soon!
