Buoy paddle on the 11'er to wish the seals a Happy New Year followed by a single, shin high peeler.

2ft at 17 seconds on New year Day with offshore winds.

Waited till tide dropped.

Christmas day was last overhead surf.

Better today than yesterday.

Soft-ish on the outside, pitching on the inside (on the better ones at least).

Nice sunrise.

Supposed to rain this afternoon....we'll see if it is real rain or just misty drizzle. My blueberries and raspberries want some rain!

some good waves to be had but i was too out of shape to enjoy them not having surfed much in past 4+ months. can't wait to get back in surf shape so i can get my shred on.

Yesterday was clean, overhead, and walling up nicely with power. I rode my 6'4" and got some good hacks and a solid roundhouse in. Also ate shit a few times thanks to the occasionally howling offshores. Late in the session, the new swell started to hit and overwhelm the sandbars.

Today I took my 8'0" for its first session to an outer sandbar, highlined a few blazing fast 8-10' runners, then got barreled on an inner sandbar breaking at roughly the same size on the way back in. I also managed to hit the lip a few times on the gun. It's a fantastic board, loose enough in overhead surf to be fun, and I can't wait to ride it in solid DOH-TOH conditions.


all i ever wanted in life was a consistent 6-10 foot righthand barrel

Finally got some rideable waves and I quickly discovered I'm out of shape. Of course the crowd was ridiculous, but I expected that.

Is it too much to ask to get something bigger than grovel waves this winter shrug

January 2 - surfed a mostly closed out beachbreak by myself with an occasional runner of a left. Glassy, overhead, and a couple cleanup sets that had me shaking in my booties. Beautiful scenary, and water was surprisingly warm(er).


Si se puede!

2018 is off to a fun start. first session back in warmer waters. rode the gx. fun but rail line felt a little short with the chop.

starting to want a 6'0 somewhere between my 5'10 squash and 6'1 round tail. maybe a diamond for kicks?

yesterday surfed a stellar day at the local in the sun, warm, some good sets clean and decent and was stoked my youngest wanted to jump in the water and whomp a few after i surfed.... today i woke up and found out an old friend died surfing the cliffs this morning, such a bummer, he taught lots of people about the ocean and was always up for an adventure, today i took the whole family (3 families) down to the beach and surfed but it got windy and kind of cold, but my kid and nephew wanted to go so i pushed them into some waves on the inside, their stoke made me fell better.

RIP Stan!
