Early March and the Thundercat circus was on the road again, this time to the Naki. More specifically Oakura.
With only four teams in attendance, the title already won and a long drive the meant for tight racing and a great crew of people. The video came out great and I feel is my best work yet, it’s now the second most viewed Thundercat video I’ve made! Check it
Think Ladder finished the season third after a hard fought battle with Protech on the day
Second place for the Nationals and some clean racing all season. Protech!
Waikato flying as usual for the top spot in this years Nationals!
Mike & Mike from AMC were there and putting on a show as usual
A huge thanks to an awesome bunch of people!
That’s it for the all the Nationals coverage. The off season will be filled with lots of information sharing and working our way towards next year!
When it comes to event and team bias, this was my event. Having spent almost my entire life living at Omaha, I was stoked to have a couple of events here. Think Ladder, the hometown team and second place sitters, were looking strong too.
The sun was out, it was hot, the water clear but the tiny swell meant to close racing. Check all the action in the video below
As always, here the event in pictures
How’s the weather?
Close fast racing was the order of the day
It was flat but it was fast!
Thanks to the local crowd, you were brilliant!
Although it’s looking like we won’t be making a return to Omaha for next years Nationals, I’m hoping for a club event!
As a huge content creator with some incredible growth at the moment I’m making a big push towards 1000 subscribers so if you haven’t already then click here for the info.
I’ve never really been much of a numbers man. When it comes to social media, I can’t be bothered playing the game. It’s just not me.
What I do focus on is being consistent and producing solid content, which I feel I do.
Here’s some stats! At the time of writing I have 771 subscribers on my main channel and 696 on my second channel. Engagement is much higher on my vlog channel but views (thanks to a few videos kicking along) are much higher on the main. Currently I’m doing about 24000 views a month which is nice. A long way from making big dollars off ads but it’s a start.
What the hell does this all mean? It means with recent changes to YouTube monetisation has been removed from the smaller channels. You now have to have 1000 subscribers and over 4000 watched hours in the last year. This is the new goal. I don’t usually press people to subscribe as it all happens organically but right now I am advertising this point as well as bribing you to do so. Find out below
So there it is. A goal of mine that I would love your help achieving. Also watch some of the videos, I upload often and I think you’ll like them.
Thank you for your support and I hope you win some stuff 😉
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!
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.
