It's no secret that I've done a lot of different pursuits on the sport and recreation front (the professional front also). I'm a strong believer that diversity of skills enables you to have the agility that is needed in our present era where the only constant is change. The more skills you learn, the faster [...]
“What’s my name?” What seemed like a moment ago, I was arcing turns in the hunt for windblown stashes of chalky goodness and now I’m trying to comprehend what has just happened. A couple of minutes passes by. “What’s my name?” asks the Patroller in a Canadian accent. I’m strapped in a blood wagon surrounded [...]
It's been one hell of an adventure since leaving London all those years ago. One thing is for sure, the desire to continue to be 'relentless in the pursuit of adventure' will continue to be my inner compass. Life is more than competition or a race, it's a game - and you get to choose [...]
Because sometimes you just need to get lost in some all time epic views....
It's hard to articulate in a couple of words just how the landscapes of New Zealand's Southern Alps and it's surrounding countryside will make you feel. Majestical, towering, moody, brazen.

If these are not enough of an excuse to visit Tahiti or fly the skies between New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Los Angeles and Paris with Air Tahiti Nui, I'm not sure what will.
Two consecutive weekends, two consecutive crossings of the Pailolo Channel and 54 miles of racing from the islands of Maui to Molokai. Two very different races, two very different conditions and one consistent result. Self supported, aiming for the an outline in the distance these races are as much an exercise in skill and navigation [...]
Two days, 37 miles of racing. It sounds a lot doesn't it? Add deep blue Hawaiian waters, warmth and 20 knots of trade winds blowing from behind. Yes, it's officially downwind season in Hawaii, the trade winds are blowing and one huge month of downwind racing kicked off with the M2Molokai Challenge this past [...]
The first half of 2017 has been HUGE. It's thrown me in the deep end and there's still a massive back half of the year to go yet. Here's a celebration of the continuation of Doing Epic Shit.
