Philip the medical kit was OUTSTANDING, thank you! Jason Stevens cut his hand badly on the first day (2 stitches, but needed about 5 I recon) and he used the kit non stop. A lot of the boys tucked in.

There was the situation I always tried to avoid…hitting the reef face-first at a very remote place, 6 hours drive to the next hospital. My lip split, a cut on my nose and some minor scratches, but I was in luck though.

Hi there crew , reporting in from WA after just having returned from the SE Javanese jungle , where the internet was decidedly unreliable . After an initial pulse of solid swell in late September things went relatively quiet as we headed into October. There were still fun sessions to be had up at Kongs […]
Howdy folks Back deep in the java jungle reporting in we have medical student AT Turner and Dr Phil Chapman aka ‘Dr Evil’ Been a busy few days on all fronts with pumping swell for the last 3 days and consequently no shortage of broken boards bodies and egos! Started off quite slow and relaxed […]
Sorry about the long-winded onslaught, the net in the jungle can be very temperamental at times, hence having to post all at once. Mon 30th Surf 2ft & Average General Crap After pulling up out the back of Speedies in the fast boat, it wasn’t quite the scenario the frothing krew aboard were anticipating. 2ft, […]

Howdy folks, a brief update from the jungle in Java.. We had an epic day in the surf yesterday with some 6 foot bombs coming through on the launching pad.. And then reeling off down speed reef. On some sets the ellusive cobra showed its coiled neck.. Today there was a slight drop off in […]
Howdy Folks We are reporting in from the Inaugural Surfing Doctors Conference, where we have been engaged in the huge task of organising, planning and educating the enthusiastic group that have come on this journey to the Plenkung Reserve.. While the lectures have been interesting and educational, the action after hours has been highly entertaining.. Just last night […]
Howdy to you blog loving Doctor types.. Just a quick question… Being a rather rotunderous, fun loving, lump of a guy and a real lover of chocolate. The last few days have seen me inhale the odd “bakers dozen” of lovely little chockie bunnies and maybe a couple of eggs too. Now me being a […]
