ACE WINS TEAHUPO'O!

8/20/13 10:18 AM

ACE!!! Adrian 'Ace' Buchan has just WON the Billabong Pro Tahiti 2013 !!

He was on fire throughout the competition, taking down the likes of John John Florence and Kelly Slater in the final rounds in awesome waves at the famous break of Teahupo'o.

We are immensely proud of you Ace, this is an incredible result!

Excerpt from the event site:

Adrian Buchan (AUS), 30, has claimed the 2013 Billabong Pro Tahiti over 11-time ASP World Champion and four-time Billabong Pro winner Kelly Slater (USA) in solid four-to-six foot (1.5 – 2 metre) waves at Teahupo’o.

Event No. 6 of 10 on the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour (WCT), this season’s Billabong Pro Tahiti saw the famed South Pacific reef pass of Teahupo’o turn on throughout the event with the world’s best surfers redefining high-performance barrel-riding, culminating in a electric, marathon 19-heat final day.

The young Australian was on a tear during the final day of competition, posting excellent scores through his five heats today. Buchan’s back-to-back 9-point rides to open up the Final for phenomenally deep forehand barrels proved enough to stave off an inspired recovery from Slater, including a death-defying righthand barrel in the dying moments of the Final.

“I can’t believe it,” Buchan said. “Kelly (Slater) is incredible and I thought he snatched it for me at the end. I couldn’t go right…but I probably should have. I still can’t believe it. It hasn’t sunk in. What an incredible day though. The sun came out during the last five minutes and it’s all just really special right now.”

Buchan’s win today marks the second of his eight-year career amongst the world’s elite (his first in France over Slater in 2008) and Central Coast goofy-footer rockets from 18th to 10th on the 2013 ASP WCT rankings.

“I knew I had to step it up today,” Buchan said. “Had to plow through some big names today. Every time I paddled out, I told myself that I only had to catch two waves. That was my mantra through each heat and it worked out well for me.”

Slater was a man possessed on the final day of competition, surviving horrific wipeouts throughout his five heats of competition to find himself in this evening’s Final against Buchan. Despite an incredible backhand barrel and a last-minute effort on a righthander, the Australian’s early scores would prove too much for Slater to overcome.

“Took a few poundings out there today for sure,” Slater said. “Felt like I dislocated my shoulder at one point but it feels okay now. The waves were really fun today and Ace (Adrian Buchan) just happened to get those two gems at the start of the heat. Those two were the ones and I would have preferred a win, but Ace has been in really good form all day and he’s a deserving winner.”

Australian wine country

2/25/13 10:19 PM

Australia has a rich tradition of quality winemaking across the country, one region in particular which is a favourite of ours at Bausele being the Barossa Valley in South Australia. One of the most famous vineyards in Australia which made itself a home in this region back in 1847 is Jacobs Creek, and one of their best drops ( in our opinion ) is the St Hugo label, named in honour of the grandson of the founder of Jacobs Creek, one Hugo Gramp, who was killed in an airplane crash in 1938 while he was in charge of the company. Just another story in the tapestry of great Australian made products created from the natural resources of the land.

Welcome Julien

1/11/13 3:30 PM

Bausele proudly welcomes on board our team of inspirational ambassadors...Julien Villion!

 

Julien is an immensely talented rising star in the highly competitive yacht racing world, and although just 25 years of age he recently raced in the 2012 Sydney to Hobart, a yacht race which has become world famous for it's challenging and often very dangerous sea conditions.

 

As a valued and key part of the crew of the Peugeot and Surfrider Foundation Australia Protect Our Playground yacht, a high performance race spec Beneteau First 45, he played an integral part in the team placing 2nd in ORCi2 and 3rd in IRC3 divisions, a highly commendable result!

 

All with his Bausele Yachting Coal firmly on his wrist to aid him over the fast paced race!

 

Julien started his sailing career at the age of 5, on the Optimist small yachts, then spent 10 years competing in small Hobie Cat 16 and F18 catamarans at national and international levels. Since 2009 his focus has been on offshore sailing with 3 participations in the yachting Tour de France including one victory.

 

A young man on the fast rise, he participated in his first Solitaire du Figaro last year, and we expect great things will be in store for Julien for 2013, as he represents Bausele with his enormous talent, adventurous spirit, and burning desire to speed his way over the ocean beating the clock and all rivals.

Here's a glimpse of a very alternate lifestyle...Members of the Wallis family must be born with sea legs. Sailing deep into Antarctica ferrying scientific expeditions is just another day in the life of these ocean dwellers. And in between battling freezing storms and dodging icebergs they manage to capture some amazing photographs.
