Fred is coming down to Oz, to surf the iconic Noosa beaches in Queensland. Noosa is famous for long board surf, 2ft of rolling surf and average water temps year round of over 20'c.

Meanwhile, this was today's surf on my home beach, South Steyne (Manly). Pretty good long boarding surf at the moment all up the East Coast. It's pretty hot here at the moment, got to 46'c last week (114), cooled down a bit since then.

Looking forward to seeing you next week mon ami. Might be some other BDS brothers up the coast who might want to touch base.

Finally, we get to meet. Vintage Fred and Brightredmegaphone on top of my Sydney rooftop office in The Rocks. What a delight! Two guys from across the globe get to meet face to face for few days, before Fred heads up North to Noosa. Hoping to grab a surf one of these days. We've been out to dinner, had a few beers, shared skate and surf stories and even got my kids speaking French again.

Hats off to Wes as well for having the foresight to pull together a world of like-minded people.

Mate, I hope the rest of your trip is just fabulous, great to meet you and Alyson.

Hey Michael. Thanks for sharing the pictures πŸ‘


Alyson and I spent a couple of days in Sidney. Michael and his wife Sally were just too cool ! They have spent some of their (precious) time to show the frenchies how beautiful and nice are Sydney and Manly.
This morning I share a surf session with a guy I never met before, who lives thousands of miles away from my home and it was like we had done that already a lot of time !!!
So, again, thanks WES πŸ™
Thanks to you I have been able to meet extraordinary people across the world. Steve Church in London, my good friend Dan Perkins in Ca, and now Michael from OZ !!!
Merci Wes πŸ€™πŸ€™πŸ€™

Forgot to mention Mr dogtown Brian santamonicadog πŸ€™πŸ€™

Finally on the 3rd day, managed to get some waves. Not great, but still an amazing time was had out on the waves at 7am, with the backdrop of a stunning sunrise.

Half way up the coast, 5 hrs out of Sydney is a tiny place called Crescent Head. 

Legendary amongst long boarders, for it's short rolling waves with a left break.

Here's a couple of Fred.

Shame it all comes to end, and that Australia is so far away from just about everywhere.

Looks like it was an awesome trip.

I made the trip to Oz once.  Definitely a hard place to get to from the middle of the U.S. but well worth it.  Also hard to leave once you get there.  A beautiful county with so much to offer.  Would love to return some day.
