Today's Surf

Thursday afternoon around the neighborhood .

            This Thursday was really cool , I got up early with a gorgeous breakfast made by my girl , after eat , board and cameras in the car then I went for a bodyboarding session in Iwata . Good waves  strong current , good training for a man who is just recovering from an operation . After that in the late evening few photos in the water next to Aimi Chan  around the neighborhood , then beer and a nice dinner next to my surfer girl at home . Unfortunately I work tomorrow morning but that's ok ,  I made my week today . I wish a nice Friday and a very Nice weekend to everyone , TCHAU .

Ben Player

Ben Player - Pipeline 2012

          To me Ben Player is the best Australian body boarder and for sure one of the best in the World . This year during the free sessions at Pipeline nobody did better than him , and he was appointed as the overwhelming favorite to win the event , but for these reasons of life he didn't win . Never mind Ben is much more than competitions , he is above it . When Pipe was hard to get in because of the strong current , Ben passed the current as if was nothing , unbelievable to people who were there watching . Here are some Ben Player photos , enjoy it mate .

Dave Winchester

DK Attack - Dave Winchester

           Winchester is one of the best body boarders around the World , I do like his performance in the movies "Body Board Tension" , kind of mix between Body Board movie and Jack Ass . He never won a World title , but for sure in the free sessions he always stands out , prone and drop knee .
