Congratulations Bobby Martinez!

I met the lady next to him last year, and she is marvellous. It was on May 2nd, one of these surfing session days you don’t want to see the sunset coming as the waves were so good.

I was looking for a boat at the marina and asked her husband to take me to the "washing machine", he was a bit reticent because he just wanted to go to the spot to take the surfers he hosted out there. But, he finally accepted.

In fact, the surfers he was talking about were the Hobgood brothers. They jumped on the boat with this lady just in front of their "pension" Vaitenui and 15 minutes later, CJ rode the wave that is supposed to be the biggest wave paddled of the year 2005 in Teahupoo.

I gratefully thanked them after a 30 minutes shooting session insisting to give them money but the lady refused. They made me happy, I rewarded them.

Those pictures are still burned on some DVD in my room and I thank them again for this.

Anyway, this year, Bobby stayed at their place introduced by the Hobgoods and he won the Billabong Pro... and at the sight of this lady’s behaviour, like my grand mother’s, very nice and warm, I think she has contributed a little bit to this winning.

So, pros, you know now how to win da stuff in dat world jungla !
