There have been plenty of threads about the drama with the Maverick's contest. Kreidler's new book, The Voodoo Wave, digs deep into the truth behind the story. He does a great, evenhanded job of capturing both sides of the story. What you'll see is that no one person is wrong or right. Knowing the story from multiple insiders on both sides, I can say that Kreidler's book is the real deal.

Hey,

I'm looking for a surf buddy to surf with before work at 9 AM. I don't have a car, but if you pick me up and drive us to the beach and back, I'll pay for gas. I live around the 2nd Ave and Errrrving (sorry I had to pass the street name filter, it wasn't naming a surf spot though) area, and I work around the Embarcadero.

Rant - Ocean Beach

There isn't another break I've surfed where there is a mellower, nicer group of people that keep an eye on each other out in the water than Ocean Beach. With fall upon us and winter around the corner I'd like to remind everyone to check your leashes, know your limits, surf with a buddy when you can, or at least close to some other surfers if possible.

New Jersey’s 16-year-old Ryan Mack has been shooting surf photographs for two years. The winter months in New Jersey are fun, but very cold, with blizzards that dump 4 feet of snow and whip up 4 feet of swell. Mack enjoys shooting a lot of the ERGO riders in Jersey, being that they’re a local company, founded in his hometown.

CAPITOLA, Calif. -- Surfers who were ready to shred Santa Cruz's waves ran into a major bummer this morning: Hollywood had come to town.

Every day, hundreds of surfers hit up Pleasure Point in Capitola and battle each other for the biggest walls of water. Pleasure Point rivals Steamers Lane, which is farther north in Santa Cruz, for hosting the hottest break.
