    New board!

    STOCK is all I can say. :jam_on: Haven't ridden it but will probably get a chance soon! Also haven't ordered a board in a while, and figured since moving away from the ocean, why not? Just kidding, but had been wanting to support this shaper (met him through a friend a while back, cool guy and...

    Help me get in shape!

    http://www.xptlife.com/product/xpt-experience-bend/ Thinking about starting a GoFund me thingy to help as well. I live close by, you think they would cut the cost if I biked from home? Do you think signed autographs are extra? I mean, BREATHE training alone would make it worth the 5Gs!

    Should I support my local shaper?

    My answer is normally yes. But, my local shaper is Gerry Lopez. :shaka: Just found out he lives about 10 clicks away from me. What say you all? I'm inclined to, if just because I had posters of him all over my wall as a keiki. Anyone have any dealings/experience with his boards? Too expensive...

    Oh most knowledgable and crazy ERBB, what say you about houses with swimming pools? Pros and cons? Looking at buying a house, and one has come up that is a nice place, and it has a pool. What are the maintenance costs, etc... I have a six year old girl who can swim already. <a...

    First surf in OR!

    After months of learning at Grad school + fam + life, I am going to get to the coast this weekend. I have a 3-4 day window and I am hoping it is good! Getting my suit, booties, and maybe gloves this week, and it's on! I've been looking at the reports, looks like it may be big and windy...

    OR Transplant haole wetsuit thickness?

    I promise not to talk OR pidgin or vibe from the deck of an SUP.... In my college days, surfed SB and central coast spots in a 4/3, never wore booties. Surfed OBSF and other spots with a 4/3 for a few years, booties a handful of times. So, possibly looking for a new suit since the OR...

    Public beach access threatened!

    http://www.civilbeat.com/posts/2014/04/08/21734-fencing-off-doris-dukes-dangerous-shangri-la-harbor/ Not sure how to feel. Spent many days diving/surfing/nighttime shenanigans there. But, once the lawsuits start, hard not to shut it down. I just wonder if the fence would even work...

    Surfing naked

    Got the idea from the towel changing thread. That thread got me thinking of the early-mid 80's Kaiser's crew. I wasn't part of that crew, but a gremmie just trying to get waves and not get sent in. Anyway, once and a while, in the arvo/evening sessions, that crew would wait until the tourist...

    Surf in molasses and you will...
