Okay people, this is hot of the press (so to speak) . . .

Storm Surfers Promo

If you miss it on Discovery Channel there is a DVD available online from 15 July. But hey, why pay money when you can watch it for free, right? Right! … Actually, I don’t have Sky TV so I’ll be scrounging off my mate Chris (but don’t tell him because he doesn’t know that yet). 🙂

Hi everyone

Last month I talked to you about the new Storm Surfers documentary. I said I would keep you posted on when it would be showing. Well, it will be screening on the Discovery Channel on 14 July 2010 (check your TV Guide for more information).

In the meantime, I thought you might like to take a look at a selection of video clips.  Enjoy . . .

Storm Surfers – Pedra Branca

Hi everyone

Okay. Now for something different.

Most of you know that one of my favorite things to do is to surf. Well, for those that share my love of surfing I thought you might like to know about a new documentary called Storm Surfers – The hunt for the biggest waves in the Southern Ocean. It is supposed to be showing on the Discovery Channel here later in the year.

There was a news item on Australia’s 60 Minute program that interviewed the surfers (two-time world champion Tom Carroll and big wave tow-in pioneer Ross Clarke-Jones) and followed them on their trip to Pedra Branca. “Pedra who??” I hear you say. Actually the question is “Pedra where?’ And you are forgiven for not knowing where it is, even if you are a surfer. It is some remote inhospitable place South of Tasmania that no one would ever want to visit – unless you are crazy like Tom and Ross that is!! But hey, don’t take my word for it. Check out the video clip and decide for yourself.

So what do you think after watching that? Wanna go? Teahupoo eat your heart out! 😉

Until next time, take care.
