I am over in Australia still. However, I did have the chance to go home for about 10 days after my last contest, which was really nice to get a little break and hang out with friends and family! The ten days went fast, but it was well worth it.

I came back over to Australia for the last three world tour events in the Southern Hemisphere. First stop was Bells Beach just outside of Melbourne. Bells is a very iconic venue on the tour seeing that it is the longest running event ever. This year was the 51st annual event at Bells. I just finished the contest and got 5th overall, which is a good result but I still want to do much better!

Overall it was a great learning experience for me and I am so excited to come back next year!!

Tomorrow we are headed over to New Zealand for about a week. I have a contest on the North Island in a small town called Taranakii. It is a fun little break, which generally plays into my style of surfing, so I’m stoked!

After New Zealand I am headed back to Sydney, Australia for my last contest over here, then finally home again. I will keep you guys posted on how it is all going! To watch the live webcasts or to check results in New Zealand, you can follow this link…

Thank you all so much for your love and support, I do really appreciate it!

Also, I would like to dedicate these next few contests to a little girl named Daisy Merrick, she just got diagnosed with cancer for the 3rd time in a row. She is the sweetest little girl you will ever meet and has so much courage. We love you Daisy! PLEASE keep her in your prayers!
