In lieu of all the vitriol that has recently been spouted here, some serious, some in jest, it's time to reflect and understand that we as surfers are a revered group, envied, and often criticized, but the following is an article that I hope will maybe get some of you back on the path of positive logic ; - )

this was posted on the Encylopedia of Surfing website this week. I'd never heard of this guy. Shows what I know. Two interesting things about the video, it shows Dana Point before the harbor (way to go OC) , and the guy is surfing an aluminum canoe ! I need to try that around here. See how it goes.

Tough paddle. Welcome to fall. Took me a while, probably partially because I am not fully fit for conditions. Once out, there were plenty of 1.5-2x set waves. Lots of fun meaty rights and lefts. Not quite throwing... Felt like OB was just warming me up :-)

Stoked.

Like a lot of you, I also blew out my shoulder in all the great surf/weather last winter. Went to PT, where it was diagnosed as 'scapular dyskinesia'. By being diligent with my PT exercises, and then sticking to an upper body regimen (even when I'd rather surf or swim), I'm about 90% pain-free.

This is a day or two late but appropriate as local surfers celebrate end of foggy windy summer and beginning of glassy fall swell season.

Did not see this online but I get the paper a few times a week. Interesting assumption with that headline. The beach is not the "Billionaire's," never was and hopefully will always be free to the public. That is what the case was about. Beach access. The reason I bring this up is the that the language of the headline reinforces the concept of owning a beach in California. Ain't gonna happen.

cool little photo of a burly king Neptune man and his cold one hanging in there while everyone else went over the rocks from the freak waves that wiped out the fans at mavs from a few years back. enjoy

Wednesday 6pm - Ocean Beach, fair- surfing

This morning was fun but rut roh.....got ugly this afternoon. As cliché as it sounds, man drowned by sea is the headline. Lots of responders out there. Reminder surf with a buddy and get everyone's back. Huge rips out there today pulling guys out 300+ yards past the break. Luckily it wasn't swinging North South otherwise there definitely would have been popover rescues. Photo copyright FatNewt Productions.

Rant - Suck It Vinod

REDWOOD CITY -- A San Mateo County judge delivered a major victory to the Surfrider Foundation and coastal access advocates on Wednesday, ordering venture capitalist Vinod Khosla to reopen his private road leading to Martins Beach.

Hey y'all I'm looking for a set of future fins. The board is a 7'2 hybrid fish with a thruster set up. Anyone looking to unload a used set on the cheap? Or any recommendations on something new? I'm about 160lbs and just starting to learn how to carve if that makes any difference. Thanks

Surprisingly fun SH peaks on tap today. Relatively glassy, zero punishment. Fun on a beautiful morning. Not lots of energy, but felt very playful to me.

Fun morning sesh - chest to head high, mostly clean, with short-ish corners. Warm water helped. Either the sandbars or swell aren't optimal right now, but still good ones to be had.

Also saw a dolphin get barreled (on accident?), so that was cool.

The handful of people in trunks and shorties in Central California aren't trying to be macho douchebags... The water really is THAT warm... Neoprene ninjas take note. When it gets cold again we'll be rubbered head to toe, just like you.

A chunky grey prologue to our upcoming season. Long walls, bowling peaks, medium paddle and a few outside bombs for your viewing enjoyment. Pretty fun with the right board.
