The Difference and Hour Makes

4 days on the road, but we were fortunate enough to get some nice little waves at Fort Point on Sunday. It was dead flat and pouring rain when we checked it in the morning, barely breaking when we decided to paddle out, and it was head-high and sunny by the time we were surfed out.

Fortunately it flipped on about 10 minutes after we paddled out.

Very fun, very cold trip.

San Diego to San Francisco

Heading out on a road trip from S.D. to S.F. this morning with Schuyler McFerran and Hagan Kelley. Doing some filming for Surf Life. Going to surf up the California coast for 4 days. Hoping to run into some friends along the way.

Should be an adventure... see you Tuesday!

November 26, 2008

Who would have guessed what a significant afternoon that would turn out to be... the first day I met Kyle Lightner and Griffin Neumann-Kyle; as well as Mr. Theo Hetherington.

What started out as a simple interview for Grass is Greener turned into years of friendship and collaboration. Don't know where I'd be without those dudes.

Cheers, Amigos... here's to many more years of adventure.

Nathan Adams Model // Dave Allee

Griffin is currently shaping me a 9'8 Nathan Adams model... I haven't really had a longboard since early July, since I somehow keep managing to sell my personal logs. (Can't wait to knee paddle again.)

Yuta Sezutsu // Liquid Salt

Great interview with Yuta Sezutsu on Liquid Salt. Super humble, gracious and stoked individual... with as much style as you'll find in any corner of the seven seas.






Mailbox // Twinzee

After trying a board my friend Yuta Koide shaped, I got turned onto the idea of the twin+trailer fin setup; which is something I had never tried before. I had so much fun on that board, and loved how smoothly it carried through turns... so we decided to take a crack at something similar.

Griffin has it right now for a few weeks of putting it through the paces. Early reports are solid, stay tuned for more feedback.
