Portugal is on the hit list for sure!

My Son is heading to Mushrooms in an hour if you guys know of that magic spot. Swell direction seems just right.

And D2, I'm going to hit Rock Creek late summer. Maybe I pick your brain at some point. Looks like there's some nice crack climbing back there.

May the surf gods continue to bless all my salty brothers and sisters...

It has been a good ride, thanks for the stoke, beta, and stories...

Live in the lip, and smoke da crypt...

Yep, good thread. Will miss it. The Swaylocks crowd are a bunch of curmudgeons.

I'll miss this thread. Here are a few cool swells/waves I got to see this winter...and then enjoy a more attenuated version of the energy at other breaks. :-)

Jaws the day after the contest. I went out on a boat with some windsurfers and spent most of the day puking, so not many pics. Most of this wave is hiding behind the foreground, but I like the rainbow. Kai L. was towing in early on, but it got too windy

Honolua was firing double overhead plus one day that happened to coincide with a local contest, so I went out for a look. I have video of this kid getting barreled and just ripping, but not on Youtube...so no share. Find me on instagram if you're curious. :-)

Anyway, watching that wave made every cell in my body ache to be a better surfer.

When I showed up, I thought I was watching the men get tubed. It was the 12-13 year old boys.

Next to me a ~7 year old asked his 8 or 9 year old pal, “When you were out there, was it that big?”

And the elder grom replied matter-of-factly, “Doesn’t matter. If a good one comes, and you’re in the spot, you just go.”

I've replayed that line in my head a hundred times since then...maybe the best thing I learned this winter. Out of the mouths of babes...
