I was lucky enough to get invited to Western Australia with the Surfing Mag crew to partake in their annual #SURFINGfactory. The factory is a two part trip featuring two separate groups of surfers that are surfing everyday and producing content on the web that is posted throughout the duration of the trip as well as gathering content for an entire issue of the magazine. It’s called the factory because its producing so much content… get it 😉 Check out some of the content that I was featured in below and keep an eye out in the future for the #SURFINGfactory issue of the magazine !
Damn! We had a fun run of waves at home, fun waves in Hawaii, and also a super fun first leg of the World Tour down in Australia. Perry was with me for a good chunk of these travels and he put this together last week. Music is Van Hande Med Dem by the Brian Jonestown Massacre (check them out if you haven’t)… 🙂
The first WCT event of the year, as well as Conner’s first event on tour, just wrapped up a few days ago. If you didn’t get to watch any of the action i feel really bad for you. I was basically glued to my computer at extremely off hours of the night cheering for Conner to do exactly what he did. I knew he was going to go in and do some damage, but damn, he straight scared people at that first event. No rookie characteristics what so ever were shown in his performance in my opinion. Big powerful clean turns and good priority choices got Conner to the 9th round in his maiden WCT event where he eventually lost to Adriano De Souza (last years world champ) by just missing a back up score in the lackluster surf. Hold onto your undies WSL, it’s just getting started. Bells is going to be starting soon and in my opinion thats a wave were Conner’s surfing will really be separated from a lot of guys. Bells suits his style so as long as he is on the good waves, I’m confident he will get some work done !! remember people… #GoConner66
