Bruce Springsteen once quoted “Someday we’ll look back on this and it will all seem funny.”

Well right now isn’t “Someday” and unfortunately for me this isn’t “funny”.

You see I received a phone call today explaining that my Indian Visa my not be approved until October 2nd, which poses as a problem when flights are booked for September 30th and the Indian Consulate has my passport.

Apparently mine is taking longer than expected, and despite me pleading my case I’m ultimately left stranded in Australia whilst the rest of the crew fly over and begin filming.

The sick feeling in my stomach is a mixture of the pizza I had for dinner and the realisation that after 4 months of solid pre-production, I wont be on the same plane as Jonno, Campbell and Smriti.

All I can do is pray for a miracle to receive my passport before 8pm on Thursday, be on the flight to India, listening to Mr.Springsteen and laughing at all these shenanigans.

Fingers Crossed.



Spent the day with the dudes from The Sugarmill painting the new rides for India.

So psyched to see these MISFIT creations glassed and ready to shredy. Yew.

Muchos Gracias to the fellas for all their amazing support. Legends.

NEW! Donations Page.

Over the 3 month journey throughout India the Surfing 28 States crew will be meeting up with several organisations that are making a huge difference.

We have set up a donations page with Paypal that allows you to throw down some coin and be part of the change we all want to see in the world.

Check out the NEW Donations page for more info on the charities that Jonno & Stefan will be hanging with from October 1st.

Remember, every dollar will be split between these groups, so give a little of the lot that you have, to help a lot of people who only have a little.

2 weeks till we’re on the plane to India! Yeehaww.
