I know this has been a long time since I posted anything, so I do apologise for kinda dropping of the map. Just got a little bit side tracked!!
So I’m back in the Uk now surfing loads and loving being home. I feel like I’m getting a new lease of life back in my surfing and looking forward too start evolving my ability. I guess with most things that you do for long periods of time you can feel a little stagnant or do half hearted.
September is here so looking forward to some long range swell and good weather. vid coming soon
Take care all and see you in the water,
Soooo its been nearly 6 months since my surgery (ACL reconstruction) and i’m pleased to say its all looking pretty good. Coming to the end of my VERY strict physiotherapy programme now which has seen me in the gym n pool almost everyday for the last 23 weeks. The knee’s feeling really strong again now and i’m hoping to back surfing in the next week or so, Morocco on the 14th so i imagine i’ll have my first surf on Anchor point with 80 odd others :/ haha, Can’t Wait!!!
I had the lucky opportunity to watch pipe live this year. The atmosphere is just incredible, and KP was the out right standout of the 3 days. Such a deserving winner and watching him take the title was very heart warming and bought a tear to my eye. Well done mate.
Pipeline Masters in Memory of Andy Irons
ASP World Tour – Pipeline, Oahu Hawaii – 8 – 20 December 2011
Bloodied & bandaged with duct tape, Team Rider Kieren Perrow Wins the Pipe Masters 2011!!
C-Skins are very proud to announce that Team rider Kieren Perrow, 34, has won this years Pipe Masters in Memory of Andy Irons. He took the crown over fellow countrymen Joel Parkinson, 30, in four-to-six foot waves at Pipeline, Oahu Hawaii.
C-Skins are so stoked for K.P, after finishing runner-up to Jeremy Flores (FRA), 23, in last year’s Pipe Masters this win was more than deserved. This years massive Pipeline conditions on the opening two days of competition helped to solidify his position on the 2012 ASP World Tour. However, it was also the smaller conditions on the final day that proved K.P as a deadly contender and commanded the Final against Joel Parkinson
“It took me up until now to get over getting second to Jeremy last year” K.P said. “It’s so good to get back here. I just felt so comfortable the whole time. I’ve had such a great event anyway and coming in to today, it was just amazing. The waves have been phenomenal. I haven’t surfed Pipe like that in my entire career. This is pretty much the pinnacle for me.”
Joel Parkinson, was a worthy contender and came close to clinching his first Pipe Masters Title - ”It’s a hard one to lose because you’ve only got one guy to beat and you’ve beaten so many, but it’s the hardest one to win.” Parkinson said. “I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving than Kieren. He’s a true Pipe Master and one of the best guys out there and I’m so glad he won.”
We couldn’t agree more, way to go K.P!!!!!!!!
