Damn, you're THAT Olaf Mitchell. :-)

I had a great ride up that route, once upon a time. Lost a contact on that big ledge, dusted it off, lubed it with spit, popped it back in, then had a go at P2. What a GREAT climb.

Olaf,
You have to put that on a separate thread.

But w.r.t this one, thanks again for all the surfing content.

Charles,
You surf? That is disgusting. I just noticed the author of this thread that has polluted ST's forum. My respect for you is shredded. You suck. Really?

All the drone footy showing up(Pipe, Jaws)is truly incredible.

I'm home sick on Super Bowl Sunday and it's a beautiful day.
So I decided to re read this entire thread.
It's epic.
The stories and photos from the many contributors are great.

O Man,
funny, your Halfstep story was very familiar to me. Turns out you'd posted it before- it's buried back in the 500s.
Your stories, updates, and photos are much appreciated.

Lurkers like Esparza and the Alpine who obviously rip, T2, ESU, adamd, rp3, thanks for your stuff.
Pyro's gopro stills, and I'm sure his surfing too, have progressed. Cool to see.
Everyone, thanks for sharing.

And I saw some posts from GhoulweJ, who just passed away recently. Ride on, J.

And I got to re read some of my posts that I'd totally forgotten about.
In most threads I'm just a drive by poster or photo sharer but I realize that I've actually contributed some writing to this thread. Personal stuff, emotional stuff, and stories I'm actually proud of.

It's been a joy and a stoker to revisit this thread from the beginning.
And while other surfing threads have come and gone, I'm glad this one has endured.
Thanks to Charles for starting it.

Now I'm waiting for my old pal bobJ to post up the field test results of his hand shaped freak board.

these feet, my carriage
supported my weight on minuscule edges
thousands of feet above the ground, jammed
into cracks screaming, cut on reefs in the middle
of the pacific, apply just the right pressure to hold a line
pitted fifty feet from the sand, carried me miles to the base
of the rock, squeaked in the finest sand, clung to cobbles, stuck
to wax, tattooed in the islands, cut in Central America, colored red
in Hueco, frozen solid in big sur. these feet. Aloha motherf*#kers.

@ Gregory Crouch:
Nope, Oregon! That board must've migrated north and showed up dinged, yellowed, and under $100 at a shop. Gave it some new glass and a new look. Got some good rides on that board, hope it's in better hands now.

drljefe, I was afraid of that but I posted it any way needing to share some climbing. Somethings that happened this week have me very introspective lately mainly the passing of Mark Hesse.
Dude I am sorry that you're feeling ill. I hope you're better soon.
Thanks again for yet another great post!

If I told ya, I'd have to kill ya! It is deep south of El Rosario.

When we drove past Salsipuedes, the road was just starting to fail. There was a 1-2' scarp you had to drive over and then up again. The Mexican transit folks were trying to pave over the whole mess. The entire thing collapsed a few days later:

To drive back we had to cut inland on the non-toll road. I had never been this way before and I may take it in the future...

I thought it worthy of sharing with you.

brotherbbock, That was a typo and I corrected it as soon as I noticed it. before I read your post.

I assure you that I have a very deep respect for Hawaiian culture.
Your point is taken and I apologize to any and all that might have been offended in this matter.
