WOW! Yesterday was even better than the day before.
My first session was only an hour and a half due to a business meeting.
By the time I got back to the office it was already too big in the back yard so I ate lunch then then drove to Kanaha where it was just awesome but that session was cut short due to an accident. I took three solid double over head set waves on the head and when that was over I noticed a nasty gash in the rail of my board. I never saw the other guy or the board that did this.
No fault no blame GAME ON!!

I wish I had learned to surf, but living in Oklahoma pretty much nixed that.

I remember when me and another Okie friend took his short board out for a try. All I remember is my face getting pounded in the sand along the bottom. I think we were surfing beach break with no clue.

Surfing is cool. No doubt about that.

Leavitt. He is one of those guys that is so gifted that he can do anything.

I expect him to be the first 100 year old guy to do the Nose in a day.

Olaf! I feel your pain, snapped part of the nose on my 9'6" a while back...

Here's my new project, converting a gashed, de-laminated Pearson Arrow into a 4 foot fish for my kids...

(the surfing starts about 1:30, mostly skating before)
He rips.

Once again, my friend Travis, who left us years ago.
I think about him this time of year especially.

I know it's glassy for you brother.
