Every sport I’ve excelled at, I’ve always been drawn to gaps.
Biked over it, climbed it, flown between it, kite jumped it. There’s something about extreme sports, flying over, through or around a sold object that you know if you f*^k it up - there’s serious consequences! Surfing through this gap in the rocks was fun till I shit my pants!! #wakaama#puakeadesigns#kahekai#oc1#quickblades#vdrive#vaikobi#eatsleeppaddlerepeat
See... I’m not the only one to huli on purpose 🛶😜. @caitlin.moffat demonstrating the best way to cool down when you’re outrigging. It’s hot AF today 🔥☀️😅🌡 (currently 40 deg C). Actually, also had a nice swim at the beach after our paddle 🏊♀️🏖
My trip to Avalon was about getting away, away from to do lists, training schedules and daily routines. I spent time looking back at 2017, all that happened, reflected and in summary thought ‘Holy hell, that was the best one yet!’. .
There have been the ocean ski races, the traveling, so many fun times and of course launching Paddle the Nile. That was the start of an incredible journey - and I totally underestimated how good this bit would be, before paddles have even hit the water. .
The generosity and kindness of people has blown me away. Friends, old and new, who have given their time, their money, introductions to their networks, support, ideas, promoting what I’m doing, sharing it and being part of it. Companies generously coming on as sponsors. Strangers contacting me offering their advice and help. Then getting to meet so many people, talk about the expedition, deliver talks, interviews... It’s been one hell of a journey. .
So I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped, supported me and been part of this, however big or small. It means the world. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and that 2018 is the best one yet. Dream big and go for it! x x 😁😁😁 #thankyou#whatayear#greattimes#adventure#travel#racing#generosity#kindness#help#support#shawandpartners#vaikobi#bracasportpaddles#bennettpaddles#dreambig#newyear #2018 #letsdothis#nye#gopro

Catch-ups with @katstace@mai_lun@mandamoo_87 and a stunning morning on the water. Clontarf to Manly for coffee ☕️ and return. Cool down with a huli 😎 at Manly and a swim after at Clontarf. Swipe to see huli hehe 👈 (yes it was on purpose).
