Well it’s that time of the year again , and the crazy September crew are heading north . News has filtered out of the camps that the surf in August was pretty good . Unfortunately there was a chap who dislocated his shoulder and there was no doc around . Yet again a reminder to […]
Leaving the jungle is never easy to do, but leave I had to.. I’m writing from the shiny airport at Seoul, courtesy of their free WiFi… Speedies has been going off the last couple of days with lots of happy and frazzled folk- again crowd factor has been minimal… To summarise, I’ll quote Nick Yoga […]
Bagus times! It’s pretty small today, if it was home you would be frothing, but the guys have called a lay day… And the boys are back in town. Kimbo, Dan and Stephane have pulled in for the swell that should be here tomorrow, so enjoying some rapid fire banter in their company…. today’s all […]
Lots of pretty stoked people in camp after yesterday’s barrelfest… today’s a little bit smaller, but still looking good, but everyone in good spirits, despite a couple of creased boards, broken boards and broken fins… I was just finishing lunch (fresh sweet and sour fish- yum) when I saw Mick the surf guide coming from […]
SURFDOC conference: we are planning a week- long conference at G-land in the early season next year- probably end of April/ start May, partners and kids all welcome. Apart from the surfing component, we would also include and educational component, and some logistics planning…. please drop me an email if you would be interested in […]
We had pretty small G-land yesterday, but better today… and set to be better tomorrow… Numbers in camp have gone up- 31 people arrived today and only 3 left,. pretty mellow crowd from all 4 corners of the globe… Have been talking through making some camp changes with Camp Boss Laurenz, and will keep you […]
Waves still barrelling and perfect and ridiculously uncrowded.. I’ve been teaching Mick Burke the surf guide and Annie how to suture using a bit of cut up wetsuit- have to say Mick’s getting the hang of it pretty well… I’ve taken a bit of old reef out of Mick’s foot and looking forward to dinner- […]
Hi all, A few sore heads around the place as birthday celebrations went on into the night, the chef made a cracking chocolate cake complete with festive candles… there’s a few people I’m sure will be feeling pretty seedy on their way back to Bali today… Will managed the worst injury of the day (non […]
Waves: Well. There were definitely waves yesterday, as predicted it cleaned up, but didn’t drop off. G-land was enormous with some sets that were easily over 10 foot. Burko got loads, about 15 people in the water… great big angry looking barrels. One guy snapped his leash and lost his board, that would have been […]
Hey all, The swell’s arrived, and there’s huge messy G-land… some good waves at 20-20’s, and that’s where a lot of guys surfed today… Burko got some good pics and managed to make little bro Paul look like he really can surf… hopefully it cleans up tomorrow… Still uncrowded… A few people left today, a […]
The gods of technology have been smiling down upon me in my jungle abode, and not only is the Blog on www.surfingdoctors.com up, but I have also worked out how to use it… no kicking, screaming or swearing either…a triumph! I’ve also uploaded the few previous missives that I’d sent out via our Facebook group […]
So since I last wrote…. Waves: yesterday turned from quite wee to nicely 5 ft and perfect, the swell’s hit WA already, and yesterday late arvo/ early evening we were starting to see pulses… Camp: 13 people out, 7 people in, numbers are low, crowds minimal, and the swell is coming… we should have some […]
Hi all, time for an update from the jungle, now I’m on day 3 and have settled in… Surf first…. first day I think I’ve mentioned, but anyway the ledge was spitting, and people were happy… since the swell’s been dropping off… yesterday was small, but there were still waves… 3/10 by G-land standards, but […]
Greetings from the Java Jungle…Joyo’s Surf Camp remains a place of the epic chill and hospitality… Been in the jungle a few hours- but already managed to meet some old faces from last year and quite a few cool new ones as well. As always the staff have been legendary…. settling in with a nice […]
Hi all This is the first post on our new Surfing Doctors Blog!
I saw Dr Phillip save that guys life. A great surfer, doctor and human being.
Preeti rocks! She saved Jedda’s hand and also saved him a couple of rands from being spent! Keep it up guys!
Hand is doing good so far i think, except it seems like some of those stitches is pulling thru as you said it would. But it still looks like the cut is together so i think it should be fine.
Hi Preeti, Nice meeting you today. Thanks for helping out the youngster. Can’t wait to see your website and let surfers know the great work you all do.
