rippas little

Justin at info@littlerippas.com There are probably few more people as enthusiastic about surfing and SUP as Justin Holland. His nickname is Frotha for good reason. A regular on the current professional world SUP tour, Justin was an accomplished junior surfer competing on the Australian circuit. He’s also a highly regarded big wave surfer and is just as comfortable surfing at home at Kingscliff with his kids as he is surfing giant waves at Jaws off Maui or Cow Bombie on Australia’s west coast. When he’s not slipping down 50ft faces, Justin is a builder and diehard family man and it’s his latest project that has him most excited. The Little Rippas are all about the kids… and kids only. “When I started stand-up paddleboarding, the one thing I wanted to share with…

fun in the sun

Imagine mountainous backdrops, crystal blue water and waves pushing through and breaking across the reef with perfection! With a short flight and a quick boat ride we arrived at a break that one local said, “No-one ride this board here before.” It didn’t take long to exit the boat and get into the line-up… With waves pumping through and the camera going we were having fun! From the bombie peak to the inside it was a 150 metre plus ride, with different sections popping up. The sun was shining and the wave God, Huey, was smiling down on us. In a blink of an eye, three hours had passed and the captain called us in and so we headed back to the boat with smiles and a buzz to match. That night over dinner…

achilles revisited

THE ACHILLES TAKE TWO As most of you know, Angie is heading back under the knife to lengthen out her Achilles tendon that would not budge! I’ve been getting lots of questions from paddler’s about Achilles problems and of course about Angie’s Achilles, so I thought I’d talk about that. WHY DIDN’T IT LENGTHEN? So, after Angie’s first surgery, she was initially put into a cast with 30 degree’s (just about max) plantarflexion (toes pointed down). This is for a good reason, as it purposely shortens the calf muscle and Achilles tendon so that any excess pressure is taken off the healing bone and tendon itself. The downside of this process though, is that she was stuck like this for six weeks. Tendons are a living, adaptable structure within the human body –…
