One of the great things about filming on the Ningaloo Reef is that every time you think you have seen everything theres always something new just around the corner.
This time it was a pack of 20 big Tiger Sharks up to 15ft long plus a heap of Bronze Whaler Sharks feasting on a dead Humpback Whale. Theres no point trying to describe it in words just check out the footage that will say it all. I'm just glad that one Tiger missed when he had a go at my camera.
Pics are of Holtzy filming the much less dangerous Whale Shark

BILKO IS THE GOLDEN CHILD!

This years X-Games in LA was something very special with Australia's very own Blake'' BILKO '' Williams taking Gold in the Freestyle final just ahead of Nate Adams and Twitch. But the event was covered with a bit of a dark cloud as in the Best Trick event; Bilko was clearly smoking the rest of the field with his never seen before 360 Indy flip. But coming down to the judges final decision they handed it to last years Gold medalist Kyle Loza, who came out and threw down exactly the same trick as last year. Where's the progress for the sport in that?

Lately I have been racing at every chance I can get, I haven't raced for some time now as the eski and big nights with the boys had become a common thing. But this year I thought I'd have a crack at a local grass track race then got the racing bug back real quick.
