A picture on TKP's blog reminded me how awesome our surf trip to Portugal in October 2004 was. Me racing a big section. And yes, i made it. Tonel Beach break.
The Man Like Tom Kirkpatrick, paddling into a beauty of a 3` set. This pic was published in the book "Surf Kayaking, the essential guide" By ex world champ Simon Hammond.

2008 first blog!!!!! whooo yeah!

Well why not start with a pic of my bike?
I went to the Mafia trails for a build and ride session to day.Put together this berm, it joins the booters and gives a very fast entry to "Hustle and Flow", and to the "Girly line" both of which are riding super nice. You can now hit my funny hip as well.
Nice sunny pic of the middle berm (and the best shaped one) in "Redbelly's Big Snake" also riding super nice still. sooo fast even in the damp.
Getting on line for this new beauty is tricky if you hit the roots on the corner. Pic from the front.
The plan is to get enough speed to make a little hip jump after it. Suggestions please. Pic from the exit. Bring it on 2008, what ya got for me?

New Years Eve!!!! 2007

New Years Eve @ the Phoenix in Exeter Presented by Beats and Bobz and Rinseout.
Thsi year i got to Dj at the nye party that has sold out for the last 7 years, and in the v.i.p no less! It sounds good but the sound system was pooh and no monitor ment my skills were worse then normal!! Thats pretty bad! Any the place was rammed as you would expect with little raving scallys every where. This will be the nye i remember... for some total little "!%£" puking down my back as i was trying to get out the door. Punk.


Any how it was still a phat night for most and i got home not too late. Bye bye to a year in the grand scheme of things that wasnt to bad, i went to Norway for the first time.Wicked. France for some biking action. Bonza. And made new friends, kept old ones and had a jolly good time. In the details it was a pain in the shoulder.yadayadayada....

We dressed as Jimmy Saville and played records we bought in charity shops. there are more photos about but this is the only one im leeting you see. James "jimmy" Gill on the wheels.
