Like vivid dreams, Hamish Humphrey’s work always gives us the feeling that we are floating right next to him. Here he captures an extraordinary study of two steps along the songline for Mr. Dedi Gunn. Exhibiting not only a personality study for us of Dedi in his famous long sleeve shirt, but a tableau of the entire environment that the surfer plays in and above. The reef is never far away In Indonesia. Something Humphrey’s uncanny sense of clear focus never lets us forget.

I meet Eugene many years ago at a bar France,I was supposed to shape him some boards then but it didnt happen.Fast forward 10 or so years and I finaly get to do some for the Pom Occy.
Eugene is one of the UK's best surfers and has a pretty good life,he works as a cook and guide on board "Jiwa" a beautifull vessel that works the Northern part of Sumatra through Tradewinds Adventures.Eugene is no novice in the surf,the bloke charges like a mad bull and rips the bag out of those Indo walls,ya would pretty much give ya left ball for just a couple of days of his life,just not those days when he hits the turps on his time off....cheers Gov.
Check out the website from Tradewinds adventures,if your looking for sic waves and great times these guys have you covered.

After over a month in Bali hooking into some Indo delights "gromet" Dylan Lehmann was straight back into the swing of things as soon as he got back to Maui.After a couple of days rest he was off to Kauai to compete in a NSSA comp and bought home the bacon with a first place result.That timed in with a nice swell so it was of to his local for a shack and punt fest and test some fresh sticks.At time of writing the wiper snapper is on the North Shore for the Surfer Pole awards and to do the dish's at the Quiksilver pipe house in return for prime positioning...hard life.

Au revoir France and its was back to Bali for nasi cumpur,star beer,fresh juice,barrels and a semi detox after France.I hooked up with my grom team rider from Maui and his mum Jennifer and we had a great time.Dylan is absolutly ripping and has a great future in the sport,I havent seen to many 13 year olds surfing like him.His reef surfing at this age is amazing,he was blowing everybody away with his maturity in some heavy situations,the kid has what it takes.I bought a couple of fresh sticks from France for the grom and he took to them straight away,I also managed to shape some for him in Bali so the grom went back to Hawaii for the start of the season loaded up with the sic quiver,the grom was frothing to hit the Quik Pipe house and hook into the Nth shore season.
A lot was acheived over the past 4 months in the development of current models and the addition of several new ones that Im realy excited about.We will also be releasing new logos model graffics and a new website/blog, all which will be launched early in the new year with the help of the very talented guys at Tazman multi media.
A big thank you to Mick Curley,Pete Mathews and Basti,these lads have their game down pat on the Island of the Gods. Allso to Mick & Sascha at Micks Place,the staff , Annie and the Bingin asli,it was "great" to get back,and to all our old and new clients....thanks for your support and patience guys.....JF.
