It’s been a pretty good year over here in Kenworthy photo land: Leave A Message, the Nike Chosen Campaign, some great trips and a few covers to top it off. Well, things just got a bit better thanks to the boys over at Transworld Surf who chose Jason’s Bruce Irons flare cover as their 2011 Photo of the Year! A huge congrats to Worthy and cheers to TWS and crew.

…doesn’t mean we’re not busy. With the Hawaii season in the books, and a bit of a gap until the 2012 tour starts I’ve been able to spend a bit of time milling about at home. Luckily for us, the waves have been fun, the weather great, and a crop of the top young surfers in town. I’ve been shooting relentlessly with Kolohe Andino and crew. Check out this ESPN.COM article for a little more insight.
With North Narabeen’s own Laura Enever
LE: I want to sew, I never liked fish when I was younger, and I actually do have a bit of determination and fire deep down.
LE: It’s been crazy. I went to New York for a couple weeks for the whole fashion week deal, and then went and enjoyed home for a bit. I actually started meditating and got really into pilates. So I found my inner zen. I found a new passion for 80’s rock music.
JK: Whose your favorite band?
LE: Dragon, it’s this Australian Band. I went to some bar and saw them, that was rad.
I pretend I can dance but I actually can’t to save my life, I’m really uncoordinated. I just roll with the fact that hair whipping is the new thing.
JK: What’s your dream trip?
LE: Dream trip… It would have to be a week in the Mentawais on the Pelagic and then a week in Bali shopping and having some cocktails: but getting good surf. The best of both worlds.
/>JK: Whose your celebrity crush?
LE: Leonardo DiCaprio, I love Leonardo DiCaprio. I loved him in Titanic, I loved him in The Beach, I dont know if I like him these days but back in the day… back when he was Jack, he was so cool.
JK: How can people keep up with everything you’re doing?
