Had an epic trip to Bali this year. Thank you Ibu and @komanekaresorts 🙏 for an awesome place to stay near Keramas with great food, fun waves, and warm hospitality. My breakfasts were on point and the massages, pool, and property as a whole was awesome. Also, a huge thanks for @rizaltandjung, @marlon.gerber, @varuntandjung, @bronson_meydi, @elihanneman and @bobhurley for some super fun freesurfs around the island. Missing the warm water and fun waves already. The travel never seems to end. Good and bad problem I guess...mostly good. :)
Fun week in #WA. Thanks to everyone who supported all of us surfers this week in this beautiful part of the world. I didn’t quite find the magic this week but some moments along the way and enjoyed myself a ton. Congrats to @caioibelli for taking out our heat this morning and good luck to the remaining competitors. I hope #TheBox turns it back on for the remainder. Looking forward to being back here again someday soon. Photos @_jackbarripp_ and @badboyryry_
PS... @_max.hansen thanks for letting me beat you and your buddy armwrestling today so I didn’t have to give you my board! Hope the hat and leash make up for a sore arm! 😬😆

When we have good info to share with the public regarding Sunny’s condition, we will make sure to do so. For now, keep him in your thoughts and prayers...and post any shots you have of him over the years and make sure to tag him. Thanks!
Couldn’t pass up the chance to post this one again...ripping on your friend/brother is the best especially when they know how to dish it out and have the inside track on the things that piss you off! Love you, @sunnygarcia. Tag the friend you talk the most shit to.
Sunny...I love you, brother. I just can’t even fathom you not here. We’ve got so much more living to do before we are done. There’s been hard times but there have been so many good ones, too. Just praying you wake up and we get more of you. (Sorry for my big head...it’s the last photo Sunny and I took together a couple months ago). 🙏🏽 #MyOtherBrother
Some inspiration going into #TheMorningOfTheFinals at #RipCurlProBellsBeach tomorrow. Thanks for all the support. Good luck to everyone still going. Gonna have to step it up to match the levels guys are laying down but let’s hope for some great waves and conditions overnight. Hope you all get a chance to tune in live at WorldSurfLeague.com or on @wsl app. This is somewhere around my 25th or 26th year competing here. I think I may have only missed one or two years since 1992. Happy to be joining this list of names on finals day. 🤙🏽✌🏽👊🏽🏄🏾🔪
Thanks to everyone who came out to #AintThatSwell with the @theswellian and @vaughandeadly last night at the Torquay Bowls Club. @markocchilupo and @bradgerlach showed up and we had a swell time talking absolute trash about each other. But in all seriousness, it was a blast to dive into old times and celebrate #BellsBeach for the #RipCurlPro. Hope to see everyone down there this Easter at the event. And apologies as I’ve forgotten all of your handles everyone in the crowd gave me to tag today! Thanks for the group shot.
Quick surf yesterday morning. More board testing. So, there is no shortage of critics of all things pro surfing so before that starts for the year, what is it you’re looking forward to or love about the @wsl tour. I can’t wait to see the levels this year and get back into the flow of surfing heats and hopefully start smashing all these kids! 😅🏄🏾👊🏽 Oh, and I’m also working on a little documentary series of the year ahead. Let’s have some fun!
