    Do you still surf?

    34. Typically once or twice a week, relegated to being a weekend warrior these days with my schedule. Only shortboards now that I live in SF, but I did ride a log fairly regularly in OC. I’d go through phases of riding a DD/HPSB no matter how small and bad it was just to try and stay sharp...

    The Skaters of the ERBB

    Fuck yeah man. I filmed myself skating curbs during lockdown and put some cheesy slow-mo and song to send to my friends, might as well share with you all here for some jeers. I learned a lot of these tricks over the age of 30 too, despite skating (poorly) all throughout my youth. and one more...

    Speaking of crowd (or lack there of), love this video of them at Cal State Fullerton

    The Skaters of the ERBB

    Love Van Wastell. This part is lower impact but probably my favorite of his. Relatable (ha, yeah right) but stylish ripping.

    Most north zone of the beach twice in the past week. Last Tuesday looked awful but I drove down anyways, found a couple fun funky wedges that offered some meager headdips and sections to hit. I was sore as hell from the gym and wasn’t moving too quickly. Today late morning. Getting over a cold...

    Same spot today, this time with the lunch crowd. Similar to yesterday just smaller and more organized. Took a bit for me to get in a rhythm with the whack-a-mole wedges popping up at random but ended up finding a couple fun ones. Down the beach syndrome in full effect, kept seeing guys on good...

    Quick sesh late morning just before the wind fully turned. Paddled out at VFWs, got halfway out and realized the outer bar waves were just burgering into nothing after a second or two so I paddled north a little to try and sit on an inner bar wedge. Took a while of waiting and paddling to get in...

    North zone of the beach early afternoon today, light onshore wind but still clean, funky shallow wedges, chest-shoulderish high. More of the same from yesterday, a lot closed or burgered out, but the one’s that lined up a little were fun for a little turn, head dip, eat sh!t and get dragged...

    Quick sesh around noon today, same zone as Friday. Pretty fun dumpy double ups. Couple wiggles, found a nice little head dip on one, and also pearled and ate sh!t in the shallows on a double up to keep it interesting. Still babying my back which for some reason made me feel slow to my feet when...

    Super nice looking conditions around 4 pm last night, felt like a late September day with the heat and offshores. Beach roads/lots were packed, felt more like HB during the US Open than SF. Despite how nice it looked, I didn’t really luck into any good ones. Most either mushed out to sea or were...

    Short sessions today and yesterday, same zone mid beach. Yesterday was a beaut of a day conditions-wise. However, the handful of waves I caught were mostly walled, a few were more solid than I thought it would be once I got to the bottom, stood tall, and looked up at a well overhead wall about...

    Yesterday 8-10am: mid beach looked crowded on the cams, opted to surf alone at the north end. Funky wedges, the best ones seemed to always be 20 yards from where I was, a couple here and there were pitching pretty square too but would mostly pinch. Regardless, still got a fun couple head dips...

    Quick session at north zone of the Beach late morning, nearly peak 6’ high tide. Middle zone looked disorganized and not worth it. Buoys were reading ~6ft @ 17 sec but wasn’t really reflecting that on the cams with the tide so I grabbed a standard shortboard. Dumpy HH+/- on the inner bar, some...

    Shirked responsibility the past 2 days with lots of stress and limited time: Yesterday— mid beach looked solid/messy late morning-noonish with no takers, opted for VFWs since there were 2-3 other people out, grabbed my 7’0”. Annoying paddle, ended up caught inside of an inner bar double up...

    Caught inside

    For sure, definitely less claustrophobic feeling I think…. however, I wear contacts. :bricks:

    Caught inside

    I now sort of separate my surfing life into pre-OB and current. Pre-OB, my most interesting time getting caught inside was at Balangan in Bali (if you remember one of AB’s/BaliIdiot‘s pics on an absolute freight train of a wave—it was probably this spot). I wasn’t surfing it anywhere near his...
