A Ballin’ Balinese summer in Bali

I went to Bali this summer for 3 and a half weeks.  The first week was with Oakley which was a previous post for the LTR (check it out)  And this week was for a Baby-G Shoot.  It was so much fun and I can’t thank Casio enough for this amazingly fun trip!

Oakley ~ Bali

A little student-teacher time with Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Greene on a beautiful island of off bali called Nusa Lembongan.  Sage Erickson and I caught up with these girls and taught them a thing or two at the Oakley Learn to Ride Bali during the Oakley Pro.  Clearly we had a blast, check it out!

China ISA World Surfing Games

Words cannot describe my recent trip to China for The Hainan Wanning Riyue Bay International Surfing Festival.  It was by far the craziest, most interesting & bizarre trips I’ve EVER been on.  The travel, the food, the waves (or lack there of) the culture and the people was such a crazy experience.  This is a trip I will NEVER forget, and this two minute 31 second video doesn’t do it justice, but it comes close. ENJOY!

AUSTRALIA!

Better late then never (once again) sorry for extremely lagging. I became very overwhelmed with all the footage I managed to collect over my two month stint in Australia and finally put this together. It’s a compilation of my trip starting in Manly going to the Goldy Coast back down to Sydney and then finishing off over in West Oz. As usual, it was an amazing trip and I can’t wait to do it all over again next year. Stay tuned for some fun videos this summer. I will be posting more regularly (I promise 8-)  ) Enjoy!

Boarding with Oakley @ Sundance

A fun little weekend at the Sundance Film Festival for Oakley’s Learn to Ride Program.  We got to teach celebs how to board, attend some fun parties and scored Utah’s first fresh snow of the year.  It was my first time to Park City and I will most definitely be going back! Check out the scene.

Family trip to Uruguay

I kick started 2012 with a little trip to South America.  My dad just bought a nice chunk of land down in Uruguay and he spoiled the family by taking all of us (+ some) down to Uruguay to check it out.  This is my first time in this beautiful country and I will definitely be going back. I would also like to give a big shout out to everyone who welcomed us with open arms at Zanja Honda in La Paloma and Marco for being such an awesome tour guide, chauffeur and translator :)  Here’s a video of our awesome crew and fun time we encountered!

HOLA ESPANA!

I’ve lagged a little on my last blog post for Spain. Mainly because of the lack of internet over seas, but also because my computer was on the fritz and had a serious power meltdown. The last leg of our Europe trip was Pantin Spain! After an awesome week in Italy and a flat spell in the Azores I was seriously ready for some surf. We had a super cute little house up on the hill that overlooked the contest, and even though we didn’t score super great waves we still had an amazing time… Check out the video for proof! ~ ENJOY ~

~ Viva Italia ~

So after a super eventful week in the Azores, we headed off to Italy. Unfortunately it was way more of a mission than the video alludes. We missed flights, barley caught trains and just about stumbled over every piece of baggage that we had with us.  (more…)

Azores 2

Here is hanging in the Azores Part II: Like I said before, we were having too much fun and way too much action to cram into one single video post. More fun nights; bowling, site seeing and other stupid stuff.  These videos include, but are not limited with the following guest appearances: ME, Rosy Hodge, Sage, Erikson, Laura Enever, Josh Kerr, Jay Davies, Jay Quinn, Megan Hosseini, Naje Malamed, Alana Blanchard, Bethany Hamilton and many more,  thanks to all for the great times in Portugal!

Azores

So we came for a surf contest / surf trip to the Azore Islands in Portugal. The surf has been unsuccessful, heat wise and training wise… in other words DEAD FLAT! But our sight seeing tourist shoes have been in full throttle with not stop action. Of all places to come without waves we have not had one boring moment to spare… check out the fun, and this is only the half way marker!  ~CHECK OUT PICTURES HERE~

Lake Tahoe

I just got back home from my summer vacation with the family in South Lake Tahoe and it was AMAZING!!!

We scored the most beautiful weather, and stayed at the most beautiful house right on the lake. I bronzed, waked boarded and even won a little mullah at the casino. I hope we go back next year!

Nicaragua with Body Glove

Body Glove flew us on down to Nicaragua for a little fun in the sun time to get surf and lifestyle shots. I picked up a tan / sunburn on my way out and we got to check out Holly Beck’s new home.  To sum up the trip: Cheyne Magnusson, Maria Gonzalez, Holly B and I all sweated it out in the 90% humidity, surfing all day in bath water and made some interesting creepy crawler friends for 5 days

Europe Part 2

We didn’t have long to adjust to jet lag, unpack or let alone wax and fin up our boards before the contest started.   First stop was checking in at the comp site and then —- well,  you’ll see what else happens through out the day!

Europe Part 1

Trains, Planes and Automobiles…add a smart car and a luggage cart to the mix, and you have summed up the 24 hours it took me and my two BBF’s on tour (Clair and Sage) to get to Europe. It was a mission as usual, but ALWAYS FUN :)
