    Not sure exactly what time - definitely at or after 6PM. When I find out, I'll post it up.

NJsurfer, if you feel like catching a train, I'm going to give a variation on the Google talk at the Patagonia store on the Upper West Side, NYC on Feb 6 (with some more home shot footage and underwater stuff). And Erock - if you're in Wilmington, NC, I've been talking with Archibald MacRae's great, great, great nephew about doing something up that way fairly soon too.
    Anyway, my very first post here.
    Thanks heaps - and post me up a review on Amazon if you feel like it!
    Oh, and I've read Caught Inside - excellent book.

    yeah...i liked "Caught Inside". Written by a guy whos a Santa Cruz newbie, really bitten by the surf bug, making a real effort to ramp up his surfing and fit in, and trying just a little too hard like we all did. It helps that the author can actually write.

    IMO, "Caught Inside" is way better than "Kook" which is kind of a similar story.

  4. I took February 6th off and I'll be making the drive from Cape Cod to NYC... I cannot f*$#ing wait!

    ColdAtlantic - then I'd better make the trip worthwhile! Stoked.
    Oh - and as for Dan Duane and Caught Inside - he went on to write some pretty kickass stuff for Outside and Men's Journal. Last I knew, he was living in OB SF.

    i've read some of duane's other stuff & it never really held my attention the way caught inside did. but that may have been more of a subject matter issue than a writing issue.

    Oh, and I found out that the times for my "talking story" at Patagonia Upper West Side will start at between 6:30 and 7PM on Feb. 6. Will be super stoked to see any or all of y'all there.

    Went to the Charleston, SC event by Chris and it was pretty cool. I think the theater holds 400 plus and we had people standing. If you haven't read the book, like myself, it really sets the stage to want to read it.

    Chris, great presentation. Wish we could have seen some of that footage you hint about.

    Regarding Kook, being one myself (started a year and half ago at age 37) I enjoyed the read so will definitely look for Caught Inside.
