When Round 4 of this years Nationals came around everyone was still in a little bit of shock from the day before. We were greeted with windy and much flatter conditions than the previous day at Whangamata.
What would happen to the points table in this round? Would someone get run over and pop their boat? Watch the video to find out!
And some pictures for your viewing pleasure
Think Ladder 3rd on the day and adding to their Bronze medal collection
Waikato Sandblasting took out second place.
And Protech Design for the Round 4 win!
What a round it as with some casualties making for a tight points table.
16 episodes down of my favourite series and only slightly behind schedule… I’ll take it. We kicked off the Summer season in what only can be described as a stellar weather pattern. There’s even some unseen Orca footage in there. Enjoy!
With Summer now at a close, the next while looks bloody exciting! I can’t wait to show it to you.
Round 3 of this years Nationals proved popular with racers and spectators alike. With big surf and a blazing sun the boats took to the water to see who would be the quickest on the day. The racing was tight and scrappy, just the way we like it. Check the video below
This video seems to be gaining traction online with quite a few views but we can’t forget the pictures
Sending it. All the boats were on the day!
Cool, calm and out in front.
The stresses of racing!

Waikato Sandblasting winners on the day!
It was en epic day that will go down in our memories for some time!
Thundercat Long Hauls are a different beast to Surf Cross events. They are long (duh) and they are fast (yeahh).
They are also quite hard to film due to the speed and the distance they cover. This year at Matakana Island the weather behaved and the race was quick. It was also what I feel the best coverage of a Long Haul. Check out the video below
I am a little behind with the blog posts so if you want to jump ahead and be current then check the videos on my YouTube channel.
My little business/brand/company turns 10 very shortly! There’s been several “revisions” of what that consists of during this time but one thing that has stayed true and that is that it has always been fairly visual.
2018 is the year I work out exactly what this brand means and give it some real direction and purpose. This means a team. A team of cool people doing epic things! Sounds achievable, watch the video below for the general idea
So what does a team mean exactly for a brand? Well it should work both ways so I’m going to keep this as simple as possible.
For the brand it means increased exposure in the chosen areas in which it has chosen to promote itself. Pretty simple.
For the sponsored person or people it means help with their chosen sport (or whatever), increased exposure and of course…. Free stuff!
As I push a lot more brand focus this year with a small team of guys (which i will detail more shortly) I of course want to expand this so if you feel you have something to offer then get in touch. I’m sure you can work out how!
Producing a series about living is ironically hard to do when you’re so busy out and about living.
I remember Winter vividly as it feels about twenty minutes ago. It was fun, long and I chose to start the move into a van. In this episode there’s a couple of months crammed into one episodea s a lot of my time was ties up with a van build. Heeeeere you go
As for what’s coming well I can assure you the weather and action turned on from November which is where I’m up to.
With round 1 & 2 now completed over the weekend at Tauranga and the editing well underway (I’m writing this for a bit of a break), I start to compare everything to last season.
2017 was the the first year of covering the Nationals and I didn’t know what to expect. Overall I was super stoked on the series and smashed plenty of buttons to keep the content flowing in a timely fashion. Are these clips the absolute best from the series? I’m not going to say yes but that are damn near good enough! Click the video below
Some photo highlights which you can dig through the full galleries on my Facebook page
The start of what may have been my favourite event of the series.
$5 Thundercat rides were meant to be taken easy. These two got to experience a flip and a free shirt for their troubles.
Preparation is key.
This crew is pretty important to the whole operation.
As for 2018 the first videos aren’t far away so stay tuned!
