surfer: kai otton

quiksilver pro gold coast finished: 25th

bad start for the 2013 breakthrough performer. kai otton couldn’t resist the rookie dion atkinson’s amazing performance. he won first ct here in portugal last year, i was stoked for him. hopefully he finds his feet and gets back to the wins

Wouldn’t be fair not to congratulate this guy for the amazing display of surfing during the Rip Curl Pro Portugal. 

Conner, I’m so stoked you, not only because you surfed so incredibly well, but also because you achieved the best result of your career, so far, in my home country (and requalified!).

I can’t wait for Hawaii!!! Yeeww!

you always end up having favorite shots from a day of shooting. this one was my favorite. simpo came to the beach a little bit before the horn went off, and nat caught this wave right at the end.

it all went on simpo’s side as he won the heat. 

the weather was perfect. not cold, not hot. the sun was hidden behind the clouds and the beach wasn’t that packed at the time.
