So Blake, you recently placed second in the Round 2 heat of Stab Mag’s Little Weeds competition? Congratulations from DiggaSurf. How did you celebrate?

 Yeah I was super stoked to get placed 2nd. To tell you the truth, there was not much of a celebration. Just painfully listened to Nanda criticise the lame prizes we won…I mean another towel? I had expectations of a new camera.

Away from the tripod Blake knows how to rip it up the same as those he films.

Any reason you didn’t enter yourself in the surfing category? There are a few time wasters on there that you surf way better than. Why didn’t you try the multi-task styles? 

 I wanted to show my art and creativity to a large network of people through my films. So I guess that’s why I went as a filmmaker. I have always wanted to make films, and would like to pursue it as a career. So why not start on Little Weeds?? I would also get a lot more recognition as a filmer than the other 300 surfers on there. I did post some photos of me surfing though.

I’ve noticed there is a female model division in the competition, how many hotties have you been creeping on over the web? And to save me and others time who are the best ones to check out?

 Chanel Stuart is pretty deceiving…what looks like the hottest 18 year old on earth before clicking on her profile. You then realise she’s 13……Classic. Fooled once again. Another model would be Tanika Roullin…she is also 13…ahh why? But who cares if she’s hot right?{ok enough said-we wont be checking out those ones!!}

Hey SONY give this kid a decent cam, DiggaSurf will plug Sony every chance we get...

So let’s get a little tech on it, who are your movie making inspirations and if you could have any video equipment what would you want to use?  

  I really like Kai Neville’s work and style with MODERN COLLECTIVE. Also I enjoyed Nimai Van Den Bos’s films “Black Cat” and “One Yeknom”. I’m desperate for a new camera…anyone want to help me out? ….It would be a Sony PMW EX1 or a Sony HDR-FX7 ranging in the $4000 to $10000 range aaahhhh. My computers sweet though, apple Mac desktop with final cut studio 2. Wicked!

Bye Bye tight jeans.

We recently did a trip up the Coro  chasing a myth swell, being the grommet of the trip you got picked on a bit as grommets do. Bubba actually said to you that you need to harden up and start sticking up for yourself? Have you been reading any self help books on standing up to bullies?

 Bubba’s totally right. My spare lunch times recently have me sitting around the old oak tree, reading “how to be a man” and “Stand up” while I get old sandwiches chucked at me by the rugby boy’s. Nah, but seriously I’m gunna get those #$%$#@$. I’m turning Gangsta next week “B wizz”. No more tight jeans.Time to lay down the law. Also gangsta’s pull chicks.

Rangi walks past a full size mirror does he–(give reason for answer)

 a) Walk past without looking

 b) Check himself out for a second

 c) Spend 2 minutes adjusting hair

d) Spend 4 minutes adjusting hair and bandana

e) Grab an old guitar and smash the mirror to pieces

  E!!! Oh that’s easy…He’s finally got a pimple.

Who needs to spell when you can abbreviate in text. Digga says Braedon surfs better than he spells.

Ryan Heath and Braedon Williams go head-to-head in a spell-a-thon– Who da u rekn wuld take it owt? (And why?)

 Ryan’s always has tricks up his sleeve. so guessing what Ryan will do is study the night before (like what he does with his Art assignments) Then totally goes to town for the “diggasurf trip around the world” prize up for grabs!…while Braedon is too busy tuning all his chicks on his phone…and doesn’t even listen to the questions. He then eats a block of chocolate, Pumps his Gangsta subs. Then goes surfing.??Whooaat??

Who’s the most under-rated unsponsored surfer you know of?

Definitely Ryan Heath. He can do airs, get barrelled, do sweet turns …but can’t  go ##@%$?

Of course he didnt farkin' make it...Bloody good effort though.

What’s the dumbest idea Nanda has had so far? (Here’s your chance to return some bullying)

 He’s pretty quick witted, so it’s hard to bully or pay him out without it being shoved back in ya face twice as worse. But I would say maybe a concept logo design for “kids with talons” with a road crossing sign and a kid with a talon as a head silhouetted in the foreground?? I guess that was kinda lame for what we are trying to do. But you readers should definitely check out www.kidswithtalons.com where rolling out tees soon.

Where do you plan on taking KWT (kidswithtalons)?

 Let’s say goodbye to all those “cool” labels we’re jealous of!!  We’re gunna dig our talons in and rip shit up! Over and out…
