Last Sunday, a local surf camp had an end of the season contest. Some decent sized waves coming through, but mostly just closing out on the sandbar. These kids, including my daughters (had to throw that in there) were really charging it. They were getting worked, but kept coming back and actually got some nice rides. Was awesome to watch. They must have had some fear but kept taking off. Great to see them pushing their limits.

Last night saw a family enjoying the waves together at Sunset Beach (Gulf). The Dad would take the board out and catch some waves with his what looked to be about an 8yr old daughter, and she was catching and riding waves no problem, while the Mom was in the shore break / shallow area with what couldn't have been more than a 6 month old child and he was laying on the board riding in on little ripples having a blast. Then Mom and Dad would switch and she would catch waves while he tended to the baby playing the shore / shallow area. This is how it should be for those who have families, it's pretty cool to see, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of you on here either, good on you and your family if it is.

I went for a bike ride was nearly clipped by a drunk driver who crossed into my lane two days ago. It was close and sucked at the moment but after it was kind of cool because nothing happened. I was lucky.

I saw some dude texting on a lifeproof cased, iPhone this evening. It was in one of their big, orange, life jacket things too. A wave came up, he looked up, shoved the phone under his chest zipper, started paddling, caught it and did alright. I laughed my ass off. First time I seen that, prolly won't be the last. Wished I'd taken mine out, the water was as clear as could be, I was swimming around underwater between sets and just wanted to take pictures of the reef and the kelp.

I knew all ya'll would dig on this, so I took lot's of pics. Here ya go:
This thing was bernanners:
It won best of in show for wood boards. Yeah, balsa and ebony. That's all inlays too. Not lams. No what I mean Verne, holy mother-of-pearl Batman, bernanners!
So that was crazy nonsense and took a bunch of shapers and a ton of work. Then I saw this, I kid you not, the most beautiful surfboard in the world. It was hand-shaped by Robert August from old growth balsa. Here's the bottom:
And, here's the deck:
