With Love..............

For the golden corn and the apples on the tree, For the milk 'n' butter and the honey from the bees, For the fruits and nuts and berries MP found along the way. We thank Mother Earth for this, and everyone of Michael's waves.

..............and like our kids said "Michael will always RIP!" xxx

Whatever it takes!!!!

This Wednesday .........the 13th Feb.......as usual is the board giveaway at Woody's Surf Shack in good old Byron town.........this weeks board is all time, one of MP's Flyer Swallows.

Bit of Quad work

The idea here is to have the rail line of a longer board...... really short boards are great, but running on a longer rail feels amazing.......this is going to be fun seeing where this goes.

Patagone to Columbus meant

They've been open a while now......just before Christmas. They've got it all and some more.......I love my steamer......like pulling on a favourite jumper, all wooly and snug.

Some of the Michael Peterson's have already gone.....I'm onto replacing them next week....and some other under the sail boat label.

Woody's Byron Bay Michael Peterson giveaway

Its a classic little bar and hang out in the middle of Byron town with images from the likes of Rusty Miller and Dick Hoole adorning the walls....old boards in the ceiling.....and they are doing up the back room for surf flicks....bands....and all the other stuff.....We teamed up recently and donated a Michael Peterson replica board to a charity called, Aus for Orphans, which they sold at auction.....thats not where it ends though.....EVERY Wednesday night cruise on in buy a drink.....hang on to your ticket.....and at the end of the night the bar manager pulls your number out of a hat......reaches up above the bar and pulls down a brand spanking new Morning of the Earth Surfboard and hands it to you. After a victory crowd surf you get your new stick and go home in anticipation of the early morning session on you new shooter.......Woody's in the arcade next to that multi national food retailer.

The fine art of Shane meets Stoneman

As always these murals look amazing, and this latest is off to the Stoneman underwear shop,so pull in for a check and grab the finest in comfort while your there. You'll never freeball again. And!!!!!these boards are to be ridden they are'nt just wall hangers because of the mural....the truth is you can hide a ding repair in a mural easier than on a clear board, so treat yourself or someone else this Christmas with a mural of your local looking pristine....not a drop out of place.
