Holy dooley! I have just come back from the most intense coupla weeks!
I was lucky enough to be invited beautiful Margaret River to live paint during the Margaret River Pro ASP surfing event, which was such a buzz – famous surfers, famous waves and thousands of people! It was my first time live painting and after a few nerves I got into it and finished a board in little over two days.
The surfing was top class, and in a shock twist, Tahitian surfer Michel Bourez went on to beat both Kelly Slater and Josh Kerr to win the event. It was some quality surfing by Bourez, which you can check out in the clip below, and boy… I could watch that that guy bottom turn in his green wetty all day 😉
I had some intense moments of stoke after meeting Tom Carroll who popped in to have a chat and admire my boards, and also to have a board signed by Kelly Slater.
Big thanks to Matt Fieldes Photography for the quality photos of the event.
