It has been an eventful week in the surfing world, and unfortunately the underlying theme of the stories that affected us the most here at SurfStitch have been quite upsetting.
On Friday the 8th of November, Typhoon Haiyan or more affectionately “Yolanda”, a storm of catastrophic proportions ripped through the Philippines –some news outlets are even calling it one of the Earth’s biggest storms. Even as this piece is written, we are still struggling to get reliable media on just how far reaching and severe the damage is, however it is clear thousands of lives have been sadly lost, and many thousands will return to lives of minimal resemblance of their lives before the storm hit. The video footage and images that have circled the globe in the days since have brought back vivid memories of the Boxing Day Tsunami that tore apart Thailand and parts of Banda Achey. Boats hundreds of metres inland, rubbish piled over the rooves of two story houses, lonely and lost souls laying piled lifeless out the front of churches, children standing roadside missing their parents, parents standing roadside missing their children and hundreds of cars upside down and thrown in precarious positions as if they weighed no more than the single litre fresh water bottles NGO’s now rush to distribute throughout the area.
Sadly, the news stories aren’t yet tipping in the favour of good news. Things are still grim, and the Philippines still very much needs our help. There are a number of reputable charitable organisations slowly getting relief to the area, one specifically we at SurfStitch know are doing amazing work is the Hurley supported Waves for Water organisation. With 235mph wind gusts recorded, the local infrastructure that supported the flow of clean water has been decimated. So far, the Wave for Water organisation has provided enough water for up to 20,000 typhoon victims – and with our help this number can only increase. To learn more about the amazing job that Waves for Water do, check out the below videos and open your wallet to them on their website.
The second piece of news that was felt at SurfStitch this week was the news that a life was lost at Outside Alligators on November the 13th. Kirk Passmore, a 32 year old San Diego surfer went down while surfing the first truly significant swell of the winter on the North Shore. Kirk is acknowledged as an experienced waterman, having surfed the Hawaiian island since he was just 15 years of age, however it was the reef which many years ago took Todd Chesser’s life, that has punished the young man for a late drop in the cruellest way possible. Different accounts of events continue to trickle in, however as video footage has emerged, it seems likely a late drop, and the falling lip of a 30 foot plus faced wave has potentially burst Kirk’s ear drum, disorientating him to the point where he lost all sense of up and down while under water. As many as 8 waves of equal size detonated in the area Kirk was last seen immediately after the wave he went down on, creating the worst case scenario for an injured surfer trying to escape to safety. Parts of Kirks board have been recovered, however most painfully for his family and friends, no body has yet been located. The surfing community is in mourning, reigniting the age old debate of how all participants of the sport need to properly measure the risk associated with big wave surfing. As technology continues to develop, and the limits of big wave surfing continues to be pushed by almost super human efforts, one must wonder whether dying doing what you love is truly a comforting thought for family and friends who will now live with an unfillable void in their lives. Not being one of the individuals who has dedicated my life to the progression of big wave surfing does somewhat deem me unqualified to have an opinion here, but as a member of the surfing community it truly saddens me to see the team a man down. Was Laird Hamilton right a fortnight ago when he criticised Maya Gab for surfing giant Nazare in Portugal and almost drowning? If she had drowned, would people be saying she died doing what she loved doing? Does the fact she came so close to death but survived allow people to be more brutal and opinionated on her actions? Would the loss of her life have kept big old Laird quiet on his opinion?
Kirk’s last wave.
Maybe… however we feel that all that should remain for any surfer is their love of the ocean and respect for the sport, and most importantly a respect for all individuals who share this love, and our thoughts are with Kirks family and all those connected to the surfing community and all families affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
On a happier note, a feel good story has trickled through media outlets this week that is absolutely worth sharing. A Victorian surfer, Martin “Marty” Brown, has this past week set a benchmark for generosity we don’t expect will be broken in a hurry. After an inspiring surf trip to the PNG region in 2012, Marty was inspired to give the local families he met along his journey the best possible chance to share in his love of surfing. Marty initiated a donation drive for new and used surfboards and essential hardware such as fins and leg ropes. The drive was so successful that this past month Marty and two Patagonian Surf team riders travelled to the island nation with over 140 surfboards. Marty explained his motivation was driven by the fact he was actually giving them the opportunity for a better quality of life, not just the opportunity to better enjoy surfing.
“By developing passion for surfing from a young age, people in these communities become more motivated to foster surf tourism, which provides a sustainable business model from which they can profit.
“When I returned from my first surf trip to PNG, I was so moved by the lack of money and the fact that people were surfing on splinters, or planks of wood, that I knew I wanted to do something,” Marty said.
“It wasn’t until I looked into it further that I realised the incredible potential for tourism and what that could mean for these communities, and being here again to hand over the boards has cemented the importance of what we’re doing.”
For the ‘CT savvy, you may have heard of the movement known as BERT. For those who are not so World Championship Tour (of Surfing) familiar, this may be something you’ve never heard of. Regardless, the surfing world’s eyes have been feasting on something more than just what has been going on in the water. Surfing has been hitting the streets. And one man has been telling us how it is:
Listen in as BERT gets ernest…
Your art is blowing minds. The majority of The Tour follows you on Instagram. Unfortunately I’ll have to start with a rookie question; is BERT a name; or an acronym for something else?
BERT is derived from Larry Bertlemann, one of surfing’s most innovative visionaries. From board design to competitive surfing, Bertlemann revolutionised the sport. In current street art trends, where a single grotesque image is mass produced and placed in the streets for simple shock value without attention to placement or community, BERT attempts to revolutionise this trend by examining a specific culture and conducting a visual commentary represented in a series of one of a kind hand painted street artworks. Each piece is directly motivated by the organic currents of the ASP World Championship Tour.
Bertlemann brought the streets to surfing through skateboarding influenced maneuvers, BERT returns surfing to the streets through surf themed art.
Previous press likens you to surfing’s very own Banksy. Thoughts I’ve had myself. Higher accreditation couldn’t be possible in the world of street art. How does this settle with you?
I have heard arguments that Warhol is the most influential of modern artists and Damien Hirst is the greatest contemporary artist. Warhol had the ability to use popular iconography to establish branding, while Damien Hirst convinced deep pocketed collectors that animals dunked in tanks of formaldehyde were worth millions. Banksy has too mastered these abilities, but does so on his own terms in the most pure and raw setting, the streets. His audience is wider. From the penniless hobo to the snooty yup, he reaches all classes. In my opinion, Banksy is by far the greatest contemporary artist of our time and rivals many of the past greats. To be compared to Banksy, at least for the stencil aesthetic and ability to successfully introduce a commentary into the urban streets, is beyond stoke.
Speaking of that social commentary, you have the unique ability to sum up all the drama of a ‘CT event in a single, beautifully uncomplicated piece. I’ve only just started seeing your work on Instagram. How long have you been creating these statements and have they always been about surf/surf culture?
The BERT project began this year after the completion of the Quiksilver Pro at Snapper, but I have been highly involved with art and design on one level or another, my entire life. The streets have always been a place of comfort; whether skating as a grom or traveling en route to the beach. It was only a matter of time before my worlds collided.
How does a piece come together?
Each piece is a challenge that I am stoked on. The nature of a surfer and an artist is to put oneself in unpredictable adrenaline seeking situations. At some point that stoke becomes an addiction… or maybe it is just the paint fumes.
Ha! Bit of both perhaps? Does the adrenaline rush come from doing something that some people, and the law, don’t understand? The majority of society who see your art would appreciate it. Others will take something away from it. Then there’s the more closed minded who would see it as straight up vandalism…
The BERT project is unique because only a select group understands the imagery. Those who follow the Tour and the surf industry can find the meaning in, for example, a guy wearing a pink jersey atop a pile of severed heads with a Tiki trophy in hand. Surfing may be smaller than other mainstream trends. It’s a subversive culture being created by strangers who relate to each other. They can decode the meaning of my pieces. It’s something profound, but it brings people together. I’m a surf nerd and I think many can identify with that.
Ace Buchan; The peoples surfer. The man who everyone wanted to win Teahupo’o. Well, he won it. Standing proud atop his victims scalps, for all to see.
You skipped a bit?
As far as getting busted? There will always be sharks lurking just around the corner, but that’s part of the rush. Would you risk shark invested waters to score hours of perfect barrels? It’s a gamble, but always worth it once you make it to shore safely.
Everyone hits the reef eventually. It’s just part of the game.
It really feels like now is your time. Surf media are biting and custom pieces are being requested. I noticed there’s something just around the corner. Can you tell us what this collab with Sherm is all about?
Steve Sherman is a legend in the industry and a passionate and talented artist, as well as a big BERT fan from day one. Fate, I guess, bound us together. The 2013 ASP WCT tour is wrapping up in December in exciting fashion with a title race between Mick and Kelly. Basically the winner of Pipe wins the 2013 title. I put together a piece illustrating the scenario, entitled ‘Battle at Pipe: Jenga the Crown, the Other Falls Down”. I installed it in the streets of Solana Beach. Steve took some amazing photos of the piece in its urban atmosphere that will be used in a BERT x T-SHERMS collaboration t-shirt in his signature aesthetic. The first BERT solo art show will take place later this year on the North Shore of Oahu with supporting photography by Sherman. A great collaboration all the way around!
BERT doesn’t confine his art to competitive surfing. A depiction of the madness that Jamie O’Brien and good mate Poopies have been getting up to on the North Shore. Such maddoggery includes surfing donut rings at 8ft Pipe. Fun for some…
A Collab made in heaven. The surfing world waits with baited breath. It’s been an amazing year on Tour for sure. The same showdown occurred last year but with Joel in the hot seat. Mick has been so consistent this year, where surprisingly, Kelly has had some ups and downs. Can Mick hold on? Or will Kelly do a Kelly and take out the Title?
Mick has had one of the most consistent years, and backed up his consistency with a win in Portugal. He totally deserves to win, but I am glad the door has been left open for Kelly. I think everyone, even Mick, is stoked on the excitement. As demonstrated in the piece titled ‘Battle at Pipe: Jenga the Crown, the Other Falls Down’ Mick is poised and comfortable, having just successfully removed a piece. It’s up to Kelly to steady his nerve. There are so many Pipe specialists that can work in favor of Mick’s campaign, but Kelly is a freak so it really is still up in the air.
The World Title comes down to Pipe. Mick in the driver’s seat. Kelly with nothing to lose. Jenga that Crown.
Kelly hasn’t had the best track record this year with Wildcards either. It’s going to be a doozy, It’ll come to a fever pitch at Pipe in just under a month and with your show coming up, the surfing community has a lot to look forward to come December.
Yep, the bank is betting on Mick.It’s his title to win or lose, and like I said, anything can happen. Thanks man. Great questions. I always get the: “Why you do it, who pays you and why don’t you get caught” questions. Thanks for putting in the time. Looking forward to the piece.
It’s been an absolute pleasure mate, and stoked to see where you’ll take us to next. Thanks for chatting with SurfStitch.com. Any chance we’ll be able to stock your tee’s online?
If you know what you’re doing, you will.
Agreed mate. Thanks again.

This time of the year is the perfect time to accessorise your home, office space or wardrobe. And with Christmas coming up sending little home wares and bit and bobs as gifts has never been easier with our huge selection on SurfStitch!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a crazy cat lover or not there’s no denying these candles are too cute to pass up! Sit them together on your bedside table, mantelpiece or separate them around the house to add a bit of colour and cuteness to your life.
Everyone’s favourite pastime game is great to have close by during summer on those many nights of entertaining. It’s a lot of fun, involves everyone and will be played time and time again. When you’re not using your tumbling blocks stack them up on a shelf to turn them into a decorative piece.
I’m befuddled in my work ethics. Procrastination comes easily. I wrote a piece about Mick Fanning a while back. I’ll even add the text that flowed numbly through my thumbs (I work solely on iPhone) not two months ago. It was based on how competitive surfing has come full circle, there were inserts of my winning analysis of Mick championing the Crown. It was post Lowers, pre France. This here is how it read:
Remember those days? In the 80s? Probably not, young reader. Professional competitive surfing was a different beast. Three turns to the beach would bag you an 8+. Three? Not the next year. Let’s make it five. Take off, pump, bottom turn, gouge. Bottom turn hack. Pump, pump….gliiiiiide!……roundhouse!….snap! Floater finish for good luck. 8+.
Then, on instinct alone, Martin Potter did something silly. Something radical. Something progressive. He puts space between his board and the wave. Right there the game changed. Pottz had redefined in a single act of impulse, the norm.
Flash to the future. For a while anything above the lip was warranted with high scores, regardless of its functionality. One half rotation reverse on a crumbly section would bag you an 8+. Jadson Andre forged a career on it for two years on the Tour main stage. The judges have caught on however. Things have changed. You wanna know what’s hot? Turns are back, baby.
On edge. Rail to rail transition. Floaters. Gliders. wafts, hacks, larrys, goddamn positioning oneself on the most critical section of the best wave available to you.
Then you get the chosen ones. Those who can do all and above. Double J, J Dub, Taj, Kerrzy. Kelly. Functional airs in crazy sections. Linking turns to airs to barrels. Using a wave to its absolute fullest. Getting 10s.
But who’s going to win this year? It’ll be Mick. I know it will. Mick can’t throw full rotations on a whim. He can’t tweak a slob in the dying seconds of a heat to scrape through. He’ll just surf a wave faster, better and more critically than the bloke he’s up against. Mick is a pure surfer. A better barrel rider than the guy he is surfing against. More flare, less care. A surfers surfer. So pretty to watch.
That is all hindsight now. But heck, as I furiously pen these mutterings, and as the semi finals in Portugal loom, who better to pass the Crown than good buddy and fellow Cooly Kid, Joel Parkinson. I may be getting ahead of myself once again. Maybe Mick will get knocked in the quarters and it’ll come down to Pipe. How good is a Pipeline finish? Really good.
For all I know, in cyber world, Mick has dominated his round; flowed his bow-legged self into a Third World Title.
But I don’t. My poxy iPhone 3 has slapped my face in its inability to provide me with Live Feed from the event.
Frivolous calls to like minded ‘CT following folk have fallen on deaf ears. I want to go to the Surfy and watch it live. But for now I’ll rely on my ‘Live Scores’ option on the Rip Curl App.
When I awake, maybe we’ll have a new, blessed Aussie World Champ. Or perhaps we’ll just have to wait. Either way, go Mick. Go you bloody good thing!
Postscript: Mick got taken out in the Quarter Finals. Kai Otton won the event (such an epic result!). It’ll come down to Pipe. Jordy, Joel, Mick and Kelly all have a shot at the crown. Huzzah!!

Ok, so the moment I read this heading I was sold, no pictures required! It’s pretty much all my favourite ingredients mixed in one: chocolate, oats and coconut, that makes for a sure hit in my books. And what better way to spend a lazy Sunday than with a little bit of afternoon baking where the smell wafts through the house and you enjoy a freshly baked cookie with your afternoon cup of tea.
Theambitiouskitchen is one food blog I look at almost weekly to find the latest healthy dinner and lunch options and maybe a sneaky treat too! These chewy chocolute chunk coconut oatmeal cookies have a rich chocolate oozing out of a delicious oatmeal and coconut goodness. By using coconut oil instead of butter it makes them that little bit more health conscious. Feel free to add in some walnuts or other nut alternatives to make them a little more nutty. My advice would be to make an extra batch because these will be gone before they’ve had time to cool!
- 1 1/4 cup quick oats
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup shredded coconut (sweetened is fine)
- 3.5 oz semi-sweet 60% cooking chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 2 teaspoons milk
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
- In large bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
- In bowl of an electric mixer beat together melted coconut oil and brown sugar until smooth. Add in egg, milk and vanilla; beat again for 2 minutes or until smooth.
- Add in flour & oat mixture to the wet ingredients; mixing until well combined. Slowly add in coconut and chocolate chunks.
- Drop dough with cookie scoop or by large rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges just being to turn a golden brown. Do not over bake; unless you want crunchy cookies! Remove from oven and let cool a few minutes on baking sheet. Transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Makes 2 dozen.

Billabong rider Taj Burrow has won the Hurley Pro at Trestles in a hard-fought Final over fellow Australian Julian Wilson, in little waves at Lower Trestles. The victory marks Burrow’s first ASP WCT win this season and 12th of his career.
Burrow’s win would come at the hands of an action packed match up, with the two Australians delivering a series of exciting exchanges in the high-scoring final. While Wilson would put together multiple combinations on the Lowers rights, Burrow’s high-scores were found via both a powerful backhand attack on a wedging left and a lengthy righthand runner.
“I couldn’t be happier,” Burrow said. “I really put so much effort in to this event and it just feels so incredible when it unfolds and goes your way. I felt like the good waves came my way and I was just in the zone. I was hoping to get things snowballing and I never felt like I put together my best surfing. I was just finding my feet more and more each heat. My board kept getting better and better and it felt great towards the end. That’s how you want to win an event, peak at the right time. I knew Julian would be tough. Even if I saw a wedged out close out I would have taken it if I had priority because I know what he can do. I surfed as smart as I possibly could.”
Burrow’s win at the Hurley Pro at Trestles marks his third career Final at the venue and the progressive natural-footer was elated to take out a win after two career runner-up finishes at Lowers.
“It feels so good to tick this one off the list, I really wanted it more than any,” Burrow said. “I’ve had two second places and one really close one with Kelly (Slater) that I lost in the last minute. That one tore me up for a long time. I just couldn’t be happier that I got it.”
Burrow’s Hurley Pro at Trestles victory puts him at No. 4 on the ASP WCT.
Julian Wilson was electric throughout the entirety of the Hurley Pro at Trestles, launching massive aerials and fully-committed turns on both the lefts and rights of Lowers while posting some of the highest scores of competition. Wilson would get off to an early lead in the Hurley Pro at Trestles Final, but was unable to put a stop to Burrow’s efforts, finishing runner-up overall.
“It’s a great result and I would have rather gone one better,” Wilson said. “It was pretty tricky out there and I made too many mistakes and wasn’t in rhythm. Strategy was really important, but also, I want to go big and I wasn’t looking for the perfect wave. I thought I could do something big on something that wasn’t that perfect. Overall, it’s a good result and I had a good day. I want to keep moving up and win the next one.”
Wilson’s runner-up finish moves him to No. 7 on the ASP WCT.
Jordy Smith was a standout at the Hurley Pro at Trestles, consistently posting high scores while advancing to the Semifinals. The powerful South African was unable to put a stop to a rampaging Taj Burrow in the Semifinals, however, finishing equal 3rd overall.
“TB got that first one and that set him up for the rest of the heat,” Smith said. “I felt like I didn’t have to do much to get the big scores. All I needed was an opportunity, but I surfed my best and maybe over-surfed some waves. I did the best I could and I’m happy with my performance. It would have been nice to make the Final, but all around it was a good contest and I’m really frothing for France.”
Michel Bourez was lethal on the lefts and rights of Lower Trestles, unloading his signature power game en route to the Semifinals. The Tahitian would earn the day’s high heat total of 17.90 in the Quarterfinals, but was unable to find a rhythm in his Semifinals clash against Julian Wilson despite a valiant effort and would finish equal 3rd.
“It was really small and hard for me to pick the right waves and I was going too slow,” Bourez said. “With the tide changing, it was hard to figure out because it changed so much after my Quarterfinal. Julian played a really good game. He started strong and kept waiting for the best ones. That was the only thing to do I think.”
With 11-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater finishing equal 13th at the Hurley Pro at Trestles, two-time ASP World Champion Mick Fanning has taken over poll position on the World Title Race via his 9th place finish. While Fanning’s Round 5 exit marks his poorest result of 2013, he’s looking to reset for a strong finish entering the final leg of the ASP WCT season.
“I came up a bit short in my heat yesterday and then I just made one mistake at the start of the heat and Travis (Logie) got that 8 and there wasn’t anything to fight back,” Fanning said. “Sometimes that happens. For me, to be bettering results, I had to get a 3rd and it was still a lot of work to do, but it would have been good to get more of a lead. This is my first throwaway for the year and it might be a good time to reset and refocus moving in to these last few events. Going in to these last three events, you want to win events and I’m just going to throw everything at it.”
The next stop on the 2013 ASP WCT will be the Quiksilver Pro France, which holds a waiting period from September 26 through October 6, 2013.
