Nick and I caught the monorail to Odiba- a man made island near the Rainbow Bridge. It was awesome!
Petra- I shall shoot her next week!

sage & surfing world

a great article in the latest issue of Surfing World with interview & photos by Andrew Kidman of Sage Joske. Sage & Andrew discuss the magic of surfing wooden craft with their usual eloquence.

further into the issue is another article by Andrew with Bert Berger also weighing up the wood/flex factor. All makes for a good read.
