Couple before the weekend

Waves were bumpy, mushy, and windy but the new swell was starting to fill in. Caught a couple of photos but I'm clearly new to H20 photography and hopefully my pics will get better with time! On the above wave, rider was turning off the top but I was a few frames too late and only caught him coming down. You can see the arc of his path... always next time!

1030 SW A Goner

Unfortunately my trusty 2 week old Olympus 1030 sw sucked in some water in the battery compartment and bit the dust... no water photos until I get a replacement.

You should've been here yesterday!

Another small day... wanted to wait for the water to clear up a bit before headin' out... waves were head high outta the west/ssw short period yesterday, by the time we arrived today all was gone. At least it felt good to get out in the water and ride a few zippy rights and lefts in a few inches of water... watch those fins!

The long wait between the sets...

The bodyboarders were having some fun...

Looking forward to Tues and Thursday. Pray for Surf!

On the Road

Couple of randoms from a drive up highway 1

I never tire of watching sunsets over the ocean... a calming effect for us before the storm


Flatness and Frustration

Some of the jokesters on the surfermagbb took their frustrations out on lake pacifica via photo-shop. I thought this was pretty funny. Note: explicit language involved

We've literally only gotten like 3-4 swells over chest high this Winter so hopefully Poseidon unleashes his wrath on La Nina. Thursday through the weekend looks promising, and hopefully the conditions will hold so I can try out my new hp-fish and get some Shakalaka... Cheers!

Twin Zamora HP Fishies. Board on the left is my trusty 5'11x19.5x2.5 hp fish in poly. You can see the review on the surfermagbb here. The bad-boy on the right was just picked up from talented shaper Ian Zamora. New one clocks in at 5'10x19-3/4x2-7/16 in eps w/ resin-x. Board's got a sweet tapered stringer and if it's anything like the 5'11 is gonna fly.... 100% pure stoked!!

Worth Saving

Image of one of my most favorite surf breaks in the entire world: T-Land! There's been lots of controversy about this place, but it is safe for now...
