~ Burger Wednesday ~

For those of you who experienced your first Scotty Burger on Friday, here at the shop, don't fear... that doesn't have to be your last incredible cheeseburger experience.

You can actually make it part of your weekly routine. (I did quite some time ago)

Swimmy Jimmy

Jimmy and I paddled out last night to shoot some water photographs in Newport.

Barrels were closing out and people strapped to giant fans were soaring overhead.

Invitation Remix

by Jimmy Pham

See you tonight.

Summer Kick-Off

Dear Mother Nature,

I've promised everyone Summer today. And while that may have been a bit beyond my capability, I've promised it nonetheless. So, I was kinda hoping you could pull through on this one. I'll try not to make such audacious claims in the future. But since it is already late June, we'd appreciate some help.

Yours Truly,

P.S. Is now a bad time to ask for waves too?

Krochet Kids | Chase Bank Giveaway

Vite for the Krochet Kids HERE, so they will have a chance to win $250,000 from Chase Bank to support their programs in Uganda.

Sorry for posting a dozen videos this week. Actually, they're good videos, so I rescind that apology.

See you tomorrow.

Sanding Room

A stack of fishes for Jason to sand from our last shipment to SSJ.

Congrats Gully!

The Gull made the Newport Harbor High School Surf Team!

He's going to be a freshman next year, and he'll be longboarding for the Surf Team alongside King Rat, who will be a Senior.

You'll be the only kid in the contest who made his own fin, and hopefully a handful of the other kids fins too.

Stoked for you Gully.

Donavon Frankenreiter and the Kookumber

Donavon Frankenreiter played a show in Roxanne's backyard on Friday night.

Through a series of events, I ended up getting my Kookumber from the car so Dono could give it a look.

I'm pretty sure he was genuinely stoked on it. He left his John Hancock on the bottom.
