I'd like to see these things tested but it is an interesting concept:

"For years, standard black wetsuits have been used by swimmers and surfers around the world. The warmth and buoyancy that they provide make them a must-have for ocean enthusiasts. But while the suits may prevent hypothermia, they fail to ward off deadly predators.

Same spot as yesterday. Conditions were a definite improvement over yesterday, at least when I got there. A little less swell, but there was about an hour of nonstop lined up corners when I first hit it. Things got funky after a while, but it was surfable all day. Oh and the water was warm... So warm that I decided to ditch the wetsuit and trunk it after a while. Spent most of the day there... from about 10:30-3:30, and got in 3 solid sessions... 1 with a wetsuit and 2 with just my sexy shorts. Felt like a Southern California beach day. Surf, sun and sand, surf, sun and sand, and surf again. I need to invest in a rash guard though. Wax and stomach hair don't make a good match.

so I recently got diagnosed with some kind of eye disease (I know, icky, right?), which can get worse for various reasons, including excessive exposure to UV. my doc said "well, you should stop surfing". I said "ah. no". she said "well, you have to wear eye protection in the water" and I remembered all the ads of various pro surfers looking dorky wearing Sea Spex or whatever.

Ratcheting up pressure on Silicon Valley billionaire Vinod Khosla over his decision to block public access to a San Mateo County beach, the California Coastal Commission on Thursday announced it is creating a website to ask people to document their historic uses of the beach.

Woke up reasonably early, checked out the surf, realized it was already shit by 7:30am, so I figured no rush. At myself some tasty duck eggs and coffee, relaxed for a bit, then charged it. Steady moderate+ onshores made an already funky windswell mix even funkier, with all kinds of lump and bump. All that being said, it was still pretty fun. In fact probably the most fun I've had surfing in 10+kt onshores. Still some swell coming through with occasional shoulder-ish sets. Lots of closeouts and funk, but the occasional clean corner would pop up every now and again. Scored some seriously fun rides. The water was so warm. Sunny out too.

Friday 11pm - Linda Mar, great surfing

Chalupas was really clean and tasty today! Bonus points for an epically hot and sunny day- no wetsuit required!

The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz sailed past SC and could be seen off PPoint when the fog lifted around 2.
Anyone catch that live?

"Cool!"

Paddled out into the random wave generator early. HH mushburgers and mixed up. Good to get a little size, but the shape wasn't so great. I don't think I had a single wave that produced a wall. Mostly just slow rollers. Weather was super nice and the water was warm. Had plenty of folks out there to keep me company too.

Just so you're prepared when if you decide to get skunked this weekend and you don't get double-skunked.

This video was taken by Pablo Lemo over Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, CA. It was executed using a drone. The surf scene is typically seen from the shore line. The view filmed from, gives a different perspective, one might seen by a bird in flight.

"The drones, which are 3D printed and are meant to carry a GoPro camera, can fly up to 40 mph and can stay airborne for between 10 to 20 minutes. While similar drones are able to track the rider through a smart phone app, the Airdog links to a waterproof wrist-worn device known as an air leash.

Rant - Handplanes

I want to pickup a handplane, had a lot of fun playing around on a friends recently. Anyone have any recommendations as to a good brand/what style is best for playing around this area with? I'm not super crafty and don't have the tools otherwise i'd look into making my own.

Any suggestions on which shops have a good selection in the area?
