2011 summed up in just a few minutes for local Cam Green. Even with a bung elbow thrown in you have to be happy scoring waves like these.

Looking forward to seeing what Cam can put together this year if he stays injury free.

There isn't any Tassie in this vid but if you want to improve your wave riding skills then take a look at some of the amazing lines that BP draws. Filmed in Bali over a 5 day period where BP went to escape life for a while.

Sit back with a fresh coffee and some toast and mind surf the shit out of these waves with Ben Player.

On my way to grab some lunch at Wursthaus, Salamanca I swung by the newsagents to see what was on offer in the world of bodyboarding magazines. Needless to say I was happy to find they had a few copies of Stoke Machine Issue 1 on the stand.

A tidy little package for $14.95. You get a few stickers, Gracia El Gato DVD and a magizine thats printed on some nice feeling and smelling paper.

I'll let you know what it's all like in a few days.

The old mini dv tapes were recently rediscovered and this session was amongst them. This is episode 1 of the Frozen Hole Archives.

Filmed by Joe Hutchins back when it was still a novelty to have pro's visit Tassie at an isolated beach break on the south coast.

Ryan Hardy scored a Riptide cover from this session with an off the lip reverse. You'll know it when you see it.

I'll dig out my copy of the magazine when I get a chance and throw it up on the site.
