had a pretty good sesh up at the bay today overhead plus rolling into insane deathpit close out barrels in a foot of water on the inside, super fun, couldn't get the grin off my face no matter how many times I got body slammed on the inside, the pin tail just smoking... the complete absence of longboarders was duly noted... which got me thinking, if you will only surf when its shoulder height and lower, please don't just stand there with a style like a constipated gorilla, those waves have travelled thousands of miles to reach you please don't let them die for nothing, try and embrace the wonderful dance that is surfing a nine ft plus board in waist high waves... here's a little inspiration

fuck mega surf

"It is with great sadness that I watch out little industry totter at the brink of the black hole of globalization. Once sucked over the event horizon, some of the best things about our unique culture and lifestyle will be gone forever... All the many breakthroughs and refinements in surfboard design, from Tom Blake's hollows to Simon Anderson's thruster, were created on the cheap in humble environs by surfers who only wanted to get back into the water the next day and surf better. I see these innovations as as being the intellectual property of anyone who cares more about the bottom turn than the bottom line. Yet our heritage of cut-and-try tinkering is pillaged for profit by those who have contributed nothing to the surfboard but a logo and an advertising campaign... The major labels, of course, will continue on their merry way, shaping without dust, designing without surfing, refining the thruster into sterility, and shilling their logos in four-color ads."

I fucking love film, I love my EOS 5, never really thought about getting a pro level digi camera till I saw this, fuck, there is just no way you could do this with film...well you could, it would just cost the earth.... money that could be well spent on surfboards and film for the holga.... bring on the 40d

righthand pointbreak dreaming

Had a pretty fantastic sesh out at the bay today with the groms and Quint and Rob... Quint just blazing on the speed dialer, the right at kiddies was working again (yea fucking hah) but had me dreaming of this place... A mish may be on the cards.

I love my occupation

Just had a look at my profile (to see how many idiots bothered to look at my profile) and found out I'm the only one in blog land who's offically a good for nothing layabout, stoked!
