Rad Shots of Me Ripping!!!
« on: February 09, 2017, 11:59:40 PM »

You know, I posted that one photo of me on the keel hull and wanted to say thanks for any compliments. However, looking through my photos; I like this one just as much.

Surfing can be serious I guess. We paddle out into a crowd and it is dead quiet and guys are seriously scratching around and scowling too! Scowling as the dolphin pod breaches next to the them and scowling at the other guy who just caught the super wedgey bowl that swung too wide to be caught by Senior Scowler.

That is why I cherish this photo as much as the other photo. Does it really have to be so serious? Even me, the ex-contest guy, found it amusing to just paddle out on a tiny closed out day and go on a death ride into the shorie with my buddies laughing at my attempt. On my back!

Banzai!!!

You know, if you are out on some death slab then it is fairly serious.

But beyond that, a few folks can lighten up a bit. I have yet to see the pier or Second Light on the cover of Surfer Mag. You have to be thankful you are able to take part in such a cool lifestyle. Where you are enjoying something you love and you have wonderful scenery and animals that people spend a buttload of money to view just freely swimming around you.

Just be a bit careful of the fins as Rick pointed out! Or not putting to much weight on the front of your board as you drill into the sandbar.
