    It's been on most of the day.

    Tom Curren (yes, THE Tom Curren) has a heat coming up next!

    Erock - I haven't had a chance to watch this at all. I heard that Michael Powell has been doing pretty good. Did you catch any of his runs?

    I haven't caught any of his--been watching what I can while working. I was disappointed that a couple heats I did manage to watch in entirety were Balaram and Gnarly Barley getting eliminated.

    Sucks that Brett couldn't keep the OBX alive.

    Clean conditions this morning and Curren just surfed another heat. What a natural. Found little barrels where none really existed and the guy's turns still look amazing. He must be close to 50 years old, surfing (and beating) guys in his heat that are half his age.

    Just went there in April. Unbelievable waves, long right points overhead set the entire 8 days. We flew Copa Airlines non stop from DC. Tickets were in the $400 range r/t. None of the airlines we could find that fly to ES were board friendly...we paid $125 each way for double bags.
    great trip and a place I want to get back to real soon.
