Introducing tasboogieland

Posted in News, Local News

While going through my daily routine of browsing fluidzone.com to get my fix I noticed a post in their forums that grabbed my attention. It read 'New Tasmanian bodyboarding blog...' so clickety click and I'm into the post.

It was from up and coming local lad Nick Green plugging his new tumblr page. You can check it out here... tasboogieland

Keep an eye on Nick's page for some of his own shots. The kid has some lens skills! Hopefully we can lock him into a bit of an interview in the near future.

GP 3 Beneath

I was on an Indo boat trip once. As I jumped into the water one afternoon I felt my watch slip from my wrist. It was a gift, so I was immediately gutted. Unable to find it I hopped straight back on the boat, grabbed a snorkel and dove back into the ocean franticly searching for my lost watch. Swimming around down there I eventually lost hope of finding my watch, however, I was overwhelmed with the beauty of my surroundings. The tropical fish and coral reef looked amazing and I began to feel relaxed and calm. As I surfaced I felt like it was a fair trade, as if the watch hadn't of come off I may not have taken the opportunity to snorkel the beautiful reef.

This clip was not filmed in Indo. It's actually a Tassie east coast spot. None the less, I still think it looks amazing from beneath.

Riders:Matt Tildesly and Harley Ward.

the mercury: surfer's shipstern rescue

Posted in News, Local News

Local lad Simon Treweek was dealt a stock standard beat down at Stern yesterday and surfaced unscathed but the wave that followed sent him into the boulders and split him open.

The result? A flight home in the Westpac Rescue helicopter
