Newport on the rock.

I've gone as far as the Mentawai Islands
 and seen goddamn people from Newport Beach. 
Our town is small and as much as you'd like, most of us can't escape it, 
no matter where you go. Trust me, I've tried.  Hawaii is no different.

Here's Ford getting ready for a little session.

Ford getting tubed.

And finishing up with a nice carve.

We saw Ford surfing (and getting fun ones) everyday that the people we were suppose to be filming, said was too small and not worth it. 

Moysa.  Must be nice to get tubed everywhere you go.
Not Newport but that's a nice punt for about one foot of water under him.
Did I mention, I personally, love Hawaii!
Moysa, gaffing the golden.
Ford, golden blow out.

Ronny, waiting in shock for my water dino to grow!

Dinner on P street with Newport's Moysa, Punker Pat,
 and some guy named Slater.
The celebration was for Mai's birthday, Mister Benji's fiancee. 

Punker told taught us how to play crochet and told hilarious stories, 
but not enough for Pat O'Connell to turn around.
Kalani Robb however, is mildly amused.
Don't worry, he's just sleeping.

Droid was there too, looks like everyone asking him when he was going to Hawaii made him book his ticket early.  That's Beandip too, in the right corner, loving his crab-artichoke dip.

Valient in Hawaii

Valient Thorr played on the North Shore of Hawaii 
and I wish I could tell you where but the location vanished in a fog.
Good times were had and thank you for Big Tony for letting me live.
I got your kneeboarding clips!

The day started off nice enough.

We had some drinks at the Bay Bar because it was basically flat.

Herbie moments before he turns into Sweaty Super Herbie.
Herbie's tranformation makes people go crazy in the face.
No stranger to heavy situations, the transformation doesn't even faze Healey.
Mikey G tells Pascal how he can hear the ocean thru his glass.  
Pascal is thrown into a deep pit of thought.  He does not recover.

Bradly honey is tangled.

This is for the ladies in my life.
Benny and Nitewolf, a doctor.
Mikey G is delirious from the joy of getting rid of that ocean cup.

Rock n Roll.

Yellow Red Red Yellow.

Herbie with the wet of sound on him.

Valient Thrashing.

Nathan is surprised by the good times rolling.

Valient go-ers.

Shuster tells Tom he can grow more facial hair than him, Tom agrees.

North Shore Fashion.

Benny is number 1.
Tashnick is too tired to even care.
And then we finally went to sleep.
post: just realized I used the wrong folder and these pictures are large and untagged. 
 I don't really care and I'm not going to fix it.  Steal them if you like! ha.

WaveHouse Hosting ...Lost Movie Premiere

This Friday the 19th, ...Lost is premiering their latest and greatest surf movie 5'5" x 19 1/4" Redux. The original is one of the best surf movies ever along with the rest of their old flicks. We used to drink 40's and laugh our asses off. Let's do it again this Friday when the sun goes down. Rumor has it that Mr. Joe Headbutt Alani had a lot to do with this movie too so get your asses down here and let's party.

A couple of turkey day snow photos

A quick storm dumped a little more than a foot on Mammoth the day before thanksgiving making for a nice turkey day. While everyone else was recovering from their hangovers I was getting some turns.
Hiking up the back of Lincoln

The result!!

Sticky showed up on Friday just in time to flip off the camera
