Weightless...So much goes into these kind of moments where the difference between good and poor execution is paper thin. Technique, timing, equipment, balance and finesse. But in the moment that all fades away and itโ€™s just feel, instinct and trust. ๐Ÿ”ตโšก๏ธ @hurley ๐Ÿ“ท @WSL

Thank you Africa. Leaving here with a bag full of memories with great people and a happy heart. The 6 weeks or so before this trip were some of the toughest for me both personally and competitively whilst our family found its feet and I struggled to find a balance between life and sport. Professional sport is bloody hard but every setback is a chance to show your character and I love that. The time and space I had on this trip, in a place I feel deeply connected to through my family history, to reflect, digest and set the sails for the next chapter I will be forever grateful for. The power of Africa is something you can feel, touch hear and smell. I love it! Thanks for all the support particularly my beautiful wife @beckjacobsbuchan who has never questioned me following my dream and to my best mate and coach @microsurfacademy, super caddy @hendricksdillen and the ever wise @paddyupton ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ–ค

Being back in Bali has felt really special. Since I first came here in 1989 as a tiny young kid and watched my Dad surf Uluwatu by himself to winning a junior world title at Kuta to getting married to my incredible girl @beckjacobsbuchan on the cliffs overlooking the mesmerising corduroy of the Bukit, Bali has shaped me more than I realise. Surfing in a @WSL event coined to raise awareness for the crisis that our Oceans are in has been poignant. Iโ€™ve watched from abroad as my country, a country which claims that climate change is our number one concern, re-elect a party littered with climate change deniers deeply embedded with the fossil fuel lobby. Itโ€™s a backwards step that denies us the chance to show leadership on a global scale to a global problem....if you believe in science that is, which I do. ๐Ÿง I was excited for change and for us to show leadership and Iโ€™ve been pretty bummed about it as I know many Australians are. Itโ€™s feels as if our individual self interest, tax rate, investment properties and franking credits are more important than the health itself of the ground on which we stand and the air we breathe. But, if Bali has taught me one thing itโ€™s that thereโ€™s good to balance the bad. Some days it feels as if this coastline of Bali is literally choking on plastic and the next day the water is teeming with turtles and marine life. Change through education is slowly creeping in though. The way young globally minded environmentalists are standing up to demand and create solutions for a better more sustainable future has been hugely inspiring. My hope is that we keep fighting for better alternatives and believe our voices can make a difference... and as the next wave of children come of age this utterly archaic way of approaching and treating our planet will surely change...hopefully quick enough to ensure that they have the opportunity to experience this incredible globe weโ€™re spinning on just as we have. โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ“ท @tallteef @wslpure @byebyeplasticbags @australiangreens @greenpeace @take3forthesea @ocean.protect @damiencole_independent @richarddinatale @sarah_hansonyoung @senatorsurfer @healthjozza @bobbrownfoundation @seano888

Yesterday I had my first real surf in just under 6 weeks. I was a little uncertain after a couple of surfs on my single fin last week as to where I was at. Iโ€™m really happy to say it feels like all the hard work is starting to come together! Just to ride a few waves was such a buzz. This particular injury has given me time to rest, be with my family, think about whatโ€™s really important to me and how I want to write this next chapter. Iโ€™m really excited and motivated to do my very best surfing and competing as well as to continue to speak up for the things Iโ€™m passionate about. My 3 girls unwavering belief in me and their zest for life has been infectious and it was hard to ever be negative. Pancakes at 5:30 am, car discos on Friday nights and building cubbies in the lounge room ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿงธ๐Ÿ’™ Thanks to everyone who has given me encouragement over the Summer, every little positive word has helped:) And especially to my team @microsurfacademy @chrisheighington @chrisprosser @paddyupton Andrew Nealon and @lukewaterspc You guys gave me the faith to keep pushing through!

The raw beauty of the Australian landscape. I love the power and ruggedness. Over the past month itโ€™s been incredibly frustrating at the lack of political response to both the #Equinor proposal for drilling in the bight and the huge groundswell of children across Australia & the globe standing up for #climatechange But in the absence of real leadership from our โ€œleadersโ€ for fear of losing votes on divisive issues we the people have finally realised that nothing changes with apathy and indifference. Yes we are all contributing to climate change and yes we all rely on #bigoil ...including for scrolling these devices of instant gratification. But to me whatโ€™s even more ignorant than the people pointing their fingers at the kids striking for their planet, saying go back to school or telling the environmentalists and surfers standing up against @equinor that we are hypocrites, is to believe that we can realistically continue to endlessly rely on fossil fuel and treat our planet with utter disdain for our children and their future. I clearly donโ€™t have all the answers but I sure as hell donโ€™t want to have my head in the sand pretending everything is ok because it isnโ€™t. We need to act...now ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Was an honour to be hosted by @chefmattmoran and @ariarestaurant for the launch of @ocean.protect yesterday. I spoke on the panel to raise awareness around the devastating impact and mismanagement of stormwater runoff. Stormwater is the leading source of ocean pollution and weโ€™re not doing enough. Without a happy, healthy ocean thereโ€™s no happy healthy us! Iโ€™ll share some more of the eye opening stats on this when Iโ€™ve put the kids to bed! @take3forthesea @wsl #wslpure
