Here is a little self indulgent video project I just finished, it’s made up of a collection of video clips I collected over summer paddling on my favourite bit of ocean and put to the music of my one of my favourite Aussie bands the Hoodoo Gurus. Enjoy.

Flight of the KONA

On the weekend myself and paddlers of the Mandurah Outrigger Canoe Club had a fantastic adventure. “Kona” the 1st Hawaiian Sailing Canoe to sail in the Indian Ocean took flight on the ocean off Mandurah in Western Australia in a perfect 20 knots of Freo Doctor wind. We’d towed the canoe down the inside of […]

Huli Drill

I just came across this great huli drill on YouTube posted by the Oceanside OCC. It’s very good and a handy reminder as we go into our OC6 season.

Flying the Ama Mirage Style

I dug up this footage (apologies for the quality) of Karel Jr and the boys playing and flying the ama in Hawaii in a lightweight Mirage. Looks like heaps of fun and a bit tricky!

Great OC1 Surfing Spots

Does anyone have any favourite OC1 surfing spots? The best one I’ve come across so far is a sandbar break just off the estuary mouth in Mandurah Western Australia. It’s long and it’s clean, the ride is up to 500m long and you can sit on the one wave for over 1min 30sec. Here is […]
