I have been a surfer for over 20 years, and a climber for over 30. I climb 3 days a week in the gym and outside as much as possible, and I try to surf 4 days a week (conditions rule). If the surf is really good I will surf 7 days a week and still try to sneak in a couple of gym sessions. I live only 10 minutes from Sloat in San Francisco and 15 from Planite Granite. It is about as good as it gets for a city slicker. Surfing satisfies my outdoor fix when climbing outside is not an option. Surfing dawn patrol or climbing from 6 to 8 am, really makes my day get off to a good start. I am addicted equally to both.

Missin the spot right now.








Pretty much only have crap shots of me surfing. Sorry for the fuzz.
These shots, and the others are all at the same spot(with a few obvious exceptions). Many moods. So cool.

That's one thing about surfing- you can finish what felt like the best wave of your life and you turn around and it's gone. Poof. All you have is the memory, the heartbeat, the stoke. Never to be repeated again. That's what keeps you coming back for more.

Pushing over the ledge on a heavy wave is a lot like striking out on a run-out lead. It takes commitment, skill, and a big sack.

edit : this wave is five-fun

Damn, I'm starting to feel like going home sick - sick of working when there could be waves!

I'll get mine this weekend, though. Rock and waves.

As for the RatFink "PRAY FOR SURF" post. . . people wrote that everywhere when I was a kid. . .one day, on the way to GoldenWest, my dad had had it. . . and he announced, quite abruptly, "Can't you kids get it straight. . . it's PRAY FOR SEX, YOU CAN SURF ANYTIME!"

There was this pregnant silence. . . for the longest minute. . . then we all TOTALLY CRACKED UP.

My dad was a tripper!

If I recall correctly ""Pray For Sex" is a break somewhere on the fringes of the North Shore.

Your spot sure looks like...
Let's see...is it named after a kind of tree?

If so, I've scored there before.
Muddy local trucks with gun racks...they heckled me for NOT wearing booties(!), obvious souther board...
Luckily my first wave was a gem and I didn't blow it stagefright style.


Oh, and I've surfed socialclimber's spots.
Good times in the foodchain!

Well I climbed this morning and ran out of time this afternoon to surf after helping my Mom with some stuff. Wasn't complimentary today, but the swell is peaking tomorrow morning so I'll still be fine...
