Guess Who?

















Still in Hawaii, this is a shot I retrieved from a roll of film.
Shoved my Canon A1 into my housing and it kind of worked.

The Future

























As one star fades I'd like to think many more are shining bright. In light of Andy Irons tragic death and the fact I simply cant start my blog looking at such sad news I thought I'd start with the future of my surf club.
I'm almost certain theres a budding A.I somewhere in this snap.

Andy Irons found dead in his hotel room at just 32.


Triple world surfing champion Andy Irons found dead in his hotel room at just 32 


Three times world surfing champion Andy Irons has been found dead in a Dallas hotel room.
The 32-year-old had made the stop on his way home to Hawaii after failing to show up during a competition in Puerto Rico.
Employees at the Grant Hyatt Hotel DFW Airport found his body at 9.44am local time and public safety officials said he had died from unknown causes.

Irons was expected to compete against two Australian surfers in the first heat of the 2010 Rip Curl Pro Search on Saturday, but did not show up.
Officials said he withdrew from the competition the next day, citing an illness he contracted during an event in Portugal.
A statement posted on the website of sponsor Billabong said: 'The world of surfing mourns an incredibly sad loss today with the news that Hawaii's Andy Irons has died.
'Irons, 32, withdrew from a professional surfing event in Puerto Rico last weekend due to illness and passed away during a layover en-route to his home in Kauai, Hawaii.
'He had reportedly been battling with dengue fever, a viral disease.'
Illness: Mr Irons, who lived in Hawaii and won the world title three times, was said to have been battling dengue fever

Reports said that Irons had spent two days in Miami on an intravenous drip, but insisted on heading home to see his own doctor.
But he deteriorated and could not make a connecting flight to Hawaii from Dallas and checked into the hotel.
Family members travelled to Dallas yesterday.
Jodi Wilmott, a spokesman for the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing event in Hawaii - which Irons won four times - said: 'The thing that I think many of us appreciated the  most about Andy was that he was an incredibly real person.
'Where a lot of champions in sports and celebrities become very guarded and you just wonder sometimes if you're really seeing who they are, you've got Andy Irons 100 per cent of the time.'
Irons was regarded as one of the world's best competitive surfers and won the world championship in 2002, 2003 and 2004.
He is survived by his wife Lyndie, who is eight months pregnant with their first chil

British Champ


On Saturday afternoon James Parry, Sennen local and all round top bloke was crowned British Longboard Champion at The final BLU at Gwithian.
Knocking out Ben Skinner in the semi final he needed to win the final in order to maximise points and take the championship.
Needless to stay, calm and collected and along side fellow Sennen surfer Matt Travis he stormed to a welcome victory.
Well done James and best of luck in the Europeans next week.

flying lessons



An air display from Tristan Jenkins and Robbie Cornwall is pretty impressive when you're just inches from their fins.
I bottled it every time not managing to get full air time but a helmet in the future will give a little more courage I hope.
