The Japanese Motors were on 101.5 KOCI today at noon doing an interview and playing some live songs. AND... I just found out Gantez Warrior will be doing the same on Thursday night between 7 and 9 p.m.
Don't miss it... it will be a trip to hear Levi, Dylan and Ronnie on the radio.
Here's the Motors' video, Singlefins & Safety Pins. Be sure to check Levi's cameo appearance in the video at 1:49.
I've been surfing the cordless log all week, and having a blast. It's much more lively than the 10 footer I've been surfing for the last couple years.
I was so excited to surf it the first day, that I picked up Levi and bolted to the beach... forgetting to get my wetsuit. The sun was just setting, so it was a do-or-die decision. Needless to say I paddled out at Blackies in trunks on Monday evening.
The water wasn't as cold as I had anticipated. I surfed for 30 or 40 minutes until it was too dark. I was so excited about the new log, that I don't even think I touched the water. I was skipping across the surface while I paddled out. Big thanks to Ronnie for letting me steal his wave to get my first solid noseride on it.
I've had an unfinished roll of film on a disposable water camera since our trip to Baja last December (2007) Having Lightner shoot some water-photography recently reminded me that I needed to finish the roll and get those pics developed. well, I finally got around to finishing the roll, and was stoked at the results.
Hoping to finish my alaia today. Not surprisingly, everyone who has stopped by while I was working on it has been perplexed beyond belief. Here are a few rad images of alaias being surfed the way they should. Let's just hope I can get into waves on mine...
Spent about 4 hours on the Alaia today. Really pleased with how it's coming together. It has a pretty defined v-bottom, and a flat deck. I also eased the entry in the nose, allowing the thickness to carry forward a little more, without inhibiting trimming capabilities.
Look from the nose, at the entry foil.
V-bottom up. 1" thick in the middle, 1/4" at the rails. I set it upside-down here to show the v of the bottom.
