Looking forward to playing at Freedom Sounds on Brisbane’s Riverstage this Sunday with Kate Ceberano + Pete Murray. Armistice Day was a momentous day in our history. The end of the First World War. I've had the opportunity over the years to play in Belgium in many towns where a lot of Aussie's lost their lives. I was able to visit many of the First World War museums and see the horror that they went through. I'm stoked to be celebrating this momentous occasion. Limited (free) tickets available at the gate on the day. Details: www.freedomsounds.com.au
Couple of fun clean waves this morning with Ed from @prosurfcoaching_ I lways love surfing people who love to share knowledge. So great to be back on the Island! It has a special place in my heart. Thanks to everyone for that amazing gig last night!! @westernportsanremo has a lot of fun memories for me like having Ben from @booseeka and the @piercebrothersmusic support. These guys are world beaters these days but they're still humble cats. It's inspiring to see. Wishing the same for @steve_cousins_music and @lucafogale
So great to surf pumping waves in Victoria again on a @garymcneillconcepts Loved it!! for a few waves until a dickhead S.U.P ran me over!! Then I changed to my yeh Olde 6'4 @jimbanksurfboards and had a great session! Actually found a few barrels out there...and many on the head. Mostly it was great to surf clean, open faced waves again!! And my brother and I got a set party wave!! Great to take a surf down memory lane!

Very sad to hear of the passing of one of my all time hero's Tony Joe White. I love his simple, powerful, poignant songwriting. Deep vocals and massive presence. We played the Melbourne Blues and Roots festival in the early 2000's together. It's the only time I've lined up to get my cd signed. And the only time in my whole life that I've been star struck. A few years later I had the honour of supporting him and having a little chat. It meant a lot to me. He was a true original. The Swamp Fox! I was just playing 'Even Trolls Rockn Roll' to my daughter on the end of her bed the other night. I think I played her 'taking the midnight train', which I love doing. I remember @iancollard doing an amazing version when we were doing a duo together back in the day. His style was so hard to define. Blues, singer songwriter, swamp funk, rock, folk, storyteller. Thanks for everything big fella. Your contribution meant the world to me and a lot of us down in Aus. You will be remembered and covered by people all around the world for many years to come.
Today, as all days I received many a blessing, the main one being that I woke up, when overnight, every night, millions don't. But also I'm very lucky to have both eyes functioning after coping my own board right to the eye and it was a pointy nosed thruster!!! Luckily I had had it repaired and rounded the nose and I think my eye was closed, it's all a blur (😂). Close call though. I was dizzy and couldn't see for a while. I'm very thankful right now!!#goodfortune #lucky #surf #bali #blessed

Just interviewed this legend @ozzywrong and wonderfull @myleegrace [email protected] book. It seems only fitting to sneak a couple of waves in at the Pass on the way home!!
Well the time has come to sell my much beloved touring van!! To say I love it it is an understatement. If we weren’t living in Bali most the time I wouldn’t part with her!! We’ve dropped the price by 10k down to 29k for a quick sale. It has a sick custom built box on the back that fits as much as a trailer (without the annoyance of a trailer). All the other Motorhome stuff. Toilet, shower, sleeps 5, takes 6 passengers. It’s a 2001 Mercedes’ sprinter with 400kms on the clock but a reconditioned motor. We've set up an email for further enquiries it's [email protected]
