Ash Bryant update

Ash has been on a mission lately hitting up and down the east coast scoring waves before setting off on a mission to Indo for Movement mag where he scored some epic shots we caught up with ash after he returned a sunburnt and content man

1. you have been on a mission lately where have you been scoring and who have you been surfing with

just been doing the missions around the local areas with all the boyz....
there definately hasnt been a shortage of waves in the last month so im really happy....
its good to finally get swell that isn't being hounded by onshore winds...

2. you went to indo for movement magazine how was that

yeh it was an awesome trip...all the guys i went with are all champions so there was no bitching and fighting which was really good....
and the waves just didnt stop the end of the trip i was just praying for a flat day so i could get some was just so consistent over there....

3. was that your first time to indo

yeh it was my first but definately not my last...thats for sure

4. did you have any bad encounters on your trip to indo

haha...yeh i had abit of a run-in with the dreaded bali belly...lets just say i didnt get of the toilet for 2 days....haha NOT HAPPY JAN....
other than that, it was all not to bad besides the roads....if you have a lead foot and have a death wish when your driving then the busy streets of kuta are the place for you....
there absoluetly nuts....

5. so whats next for ash

well im currently studying a Diploma of Building Design (Architecture) at gold coast tafe, so im going to try and stay on top of that at the moment, and once i get my financial status up abit then ill be definately doing a few trips around aus, then probably follow the herd over to hawaii...

Thorpe Waluew - The most recent addition to our Team

Thorpe is the newest addition to the Bodyboardshop team. He was recently picked as the 1st NF grom search winner. He is only a little tacker at just 12 years of age but is already turning heads in the bodyboarding world, including the style lord himself Mr Ryan Hardy who said “the kid has enormous potential”. If he keeps at it like he has the first two years of his short career he will be at the top of the food chain in no time.
