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:
was at beach yes'terday and saw some dolphins of course and bikinis, also a week or three back there was a car show by my house and the truck pictured won best in show IMG_0010.jpgIMG_0002.jpgIMG_0003.jpg
you mean there's a loggerhead in the marina there?
The turtle lost his way and found a new home in the marina. He feeds off unwanted bait & food hand outs from Harbor Masters - almost like the area alligators. Why live in the wild? People just toss food out to wild animals like it's confetti on New Years Day. Then they want to ask what happened to their dog?

I saw some grom shreddin it at the reef last night. Taking off and making everything, really super clean cut backs, just really nice style and a good sense of wave awareness; in blown out, nasty 3-5' surf. I had a blast. I was walking back up the cliff and I stop to talk to one of my buddies who's out of the water right now, post ear-surgery. We're chattin it up when the kid starts walking up the trail. He's got about 4 and a half feet of broken wave storm soft top under his arm. I ask him, “what did you do, break your board?” He sure hadn’t looked like he had been surfing on a softie before, but I had been busy and about 50 yds away. He said, “No, it’s been like this.” Blown away I say, “You were riding that thing just like that the whole time you were out?!?! I saw you standing up, didn’t I?”
“Yeah”, he says just as cool as a cucumber.
Kid was surfing better than most people I know on a no finned, broken-in-half wave storm soft top.
Now that’s G.
