Watching: To be honest, I haven’t been watching too much TV. If there is a good flick on I’ll get into it. I just recently watched a documentary on Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna and that blew my mind. But, to be honest, I like to be outdoors socializing with the boys, talking shit and having a laugh. I have been on the road so much lately that when I’m on trips I’m catching upwith people I haven’t seen in ages.

Reading: My attention span is like a five year old boy on heat. If you can’t get me to watch TV, you definitely ain’t going to see me reading a book — I’ll just see it when they make the book into a movie.

Browsing: I do spend a lot of time on the net browsing for music and watching a lot of artists perform at massive festivals. That makes me just jump out of my skin to get there and play at those massive parties. YouTube is pretty amazing too. You can watch everything — whatever you want is there. I spend a lot of time in the vortex.

Playing: I DJ and produce music in most of my spare time these days. I’m in a little duo with my good mate Leigh Sedley and we’re called CUTSNAKE. When I’m out of the water I’m finding music or with Sedz producing as much as wecan. The parties we have been playing lately in LA have been all time and it gives me a buzz to watch people go mad to our tunes and see everyone bopping to the beat. It’s sick.

Buying: Last thing I bought was a ticket to Bali to go surf. The best money I’ve ever spent. I don’t care how much a trip costs in the end if you get good waves with all your mates — that’s the ultimate feeling. Nothing really beats that. Maybe a bit of barney at the end of the rainbow (laughs).

Eating and Drinking: My favorite food in the whole world is steak, mashed potatoes and salad. I could eat that all day. Any type of BBQ. Nothing’s better than ripping into a good snag. As far as drinking, I was born in the rum capitol of Australia, Bundaberg. So good old stiff bundy rum and coke.

Partying: Well, we have been playing some fun parties lately up here in LA at the downtown Standard — the Roosevelt pool party is always a good one to play too. We just recently played at a private party up here and they had a nightclub in their house. It was the craziest set up I have ever seen. A sound systemthat would rip your head off. I love going out with all the boys, running amuck anywhere. If you have good company the stories will follow and so will the hangover. But you got to love it.

Listening: I love listening to house music all day long. If that shit doesn’t get you bopping then you need to see a doctor. The doctor will thentell you to go see a shrink. I’ve had Machado considering changing his career to become a full time raver. I just recently got back from the Miami Ultra Music Festival and that was mind-boggling. Three days of madness watching some of my favorite artists.
