I'm happy and stoked to give you a little video from our trip to Indonesia with Daniel Patterson and Marion Schweizer. We've been lucky with the conditions as we've kited and surfed almost every day. More importantly the locals have welcomed us with opened arms which made our trip a very remarkable one. Unfortunately Indonesia is not as developed as the rest of the world. My friend Bastien once said "with great freedom comes great responsibility" and he was referring to traveling. Make sure you travel responsibly and pay respect to the local community. Having money means noting it's all about respect and passing your knowledge on to the people in need. Enjoy!

I recently left on a surf trip to the islands of Indonesia. My friend Daniel scored good conditions in September last year so we teamed up for another trip. This time of the year you can get solid winds and late winter swells traveling up the coast of Australia and finally hitting somewhere in Indo. While exploring the islands we had a 3 week window for the swell to arrive and to get to know the Indonesian culture. The locals have welcomed us with much care, heaps of smiles and in return we could only give them all our respect.

There is something about making your own surfboard. Maybe it's the idea, the shaping act or the first time you get to ride your very own board. If you are a builder and surfer you must have at least thought about it at some point. Time and place was right for me and I needed a special board to attach to my new Moses hydrofoil. READ MORE...

The wind is blowing chilly as the winter has finally arrived in Western Australia. When I turned up on my home-spot the conditions reminded me very much of summer days, except the thick wetsuit I was wearing. The wind was southerly, around 20 knots and a new moon low tide made the water nice and flat. READ MORE

We were heading towards summer and our camper was pulling us along the west coast of Australia. Good times are best when shared with friends and through this Mixtape I want you to be a part of it.

The 313 was one of my first handle passes on my switch riding side. It's a railey, followed by a frontside 360 rotation, passing the bar in the air and landing heel side. If you are already doing railey's to blind in regular, the 313 on your switch side will come easier as its the same rotation. Let me take you trough a few personal key elements I figured along the way... READ MORE

The Pond is the place where we are spending many sessions this season. It's a lagoon in Perth with a horseshoe shape and an open side to the sea. If you are regular footed or like to do switch tricks like me, this is a great place to ride. I was on the new Hadlow Wakestyle Board (Flexifoil) which is great fun. Going upwind is easy (with or without fins), it's light and has a strong pop. SEE THE SHOTS

Summer is here, the days are hot and the wind is pumping in the Southern Hemisphere. It was time to catch up with Mark Moore, the wave wizard and get some inspiration. I was out on the new Flexifoil Shiva wave kites, 9m that day, enjoying a few powerful turns in Perth's small waves.
