Heading out for one more lap of the Hatcher Pass cross country ski circuit. With winter approaching the northern hemisphere I imagine this place is starting to get chilly again ❄

Happiest of birthdays wishes to Wollongong's own mermaid, @sandra_dohring. Hopefully we'll be diving together again soon!

Not all heroes wear capes, but some of them do wear masks. Sandra cuts free the tangled mess of fishing line and rope while Casey drops in to help.
A little while a go I photographed the huge effort by the Wollongong Freedivers who teamed up with Surfrider UOW beach clean event. The aim was to remove rubbish from the Wollongong Harbour and raise awareness about plastic pollution and protecting our oceans. Jumping in at the harbour beach we were disgusted to see... Nothing. It was by far the worst visibility I've ever experienced. The kind where you can't see your own hand! It was like swimming in a matcha latte. Nervous that the clean up would be a huge disaster we moved to the harbour inlet and to our great enjoyment we found clearer water. Given that it's a hot spot for local fishermen we weren't surprised to find the sea floor covered in snagged line, lures and discarded crab pots as well as all kinds of trash. Over the course of an hour we filled bag after bag with trash and brought them back to shore. I'm incredibly proud of to be a part of the local freediving community. Bunch of absolute legends.

Head up laddie.
Slow progress with the leg but plenty of positives too. Had my first legitimate shower last night now that the wounds have healed. Mutha. Flippin. Glorious.
Finding I've got more energy each day so I'm keen to start training the upper body tonight. Time to get stronger for next season! Thanks to everyone for the support so far ❤

This won't be news to some but I broke my leg my last Tuesday at the bouldering gym. I was doing a sideways dyno, came off awkwardly at the apex of my swing and fell onto the one leg. I'm now resting up at home in a sexy moon boot and with a whole lot of metal in my leg. It'll be a long road to recovery but I'm excited for the opportunity to focus on some other (non leg dependent!) projects. Hopefully soon I'll be back in the climbing gym and working these fingers into mutant level strength for next climbing season! Thanks to everyone for the support so far, it means the world ❤

Misty mornings in the valley.

It's not Tonga, but a few times a year the water gets pretty amazing around Wollongong. I doubt there's many spots in Aus like this just 2 minutes from the CBD. @sandra_dohring soaks up the winter rays in a chilly dive a few weekends back.

Today marks one year of adventures with my partner in debauchery and mischief, @coraliejf. Thanks for all the wonderful times so far and I can't wait to see what's next. Lots of love ❤

Grug following CJ up the 6th pitch of The Bridge to Total Freedom. After watching the temperature hit -4°C on the drive down we were pretty sure we'd lose most of our limbs to frostbite. Managed to get up Evolution with @dave.hoyle without a worry and even got a little bit toasty once we hit the glorious sunlit pitches. Can't wait to come back here soon to take on some bigger and gnarlier routes and take some photos that aren't bum shots!

On the hunt for crays through one of the local cave systems with @sandra_dohring. Sandra introduced me to this spot a few days a go and I must admit I'm pretty hooked on the otherworldly formations and colours down here. The ocean is fiiiine indead.

Sunset dives with @sandra_dohring to cap off a long week. After a few weeks of the flu it's so nice to be freediving again. With it getting dark we didn't have much time but checked out some stellar caves and got rushed by some of the fattest salmon I've ever seen. Definitely bringing the spear our next time! Happy days.
