I am beginning to figure out, that planning surf trips aren't really possible for me. The only way it works, is finding out where i am going, 24 hours prior to my flight. But this time, it wasn't all about finding perfect waves. The first half, was just sitting back, with a cold beer and watching my friends throw them selves into 20ft closeouts, which was quite entertaining i must say. And the second half was nothing but perfect right points, without a soul in sight. So all and all, it wasn't so bad of an adventure ;)
Brain freezes, clam chowder, and 5 mil wetsuits. All correlate with the majestical land they call, The Pacific Northwest. A lazy Tuesday morning in San Diego, suddenly became a stress filled packing day, after Albee and I got an invite to explore some frigid beach breaks. It was a couple short flights, and a long drive into what I can only explain as "Narnia". It was 5 full days of nothing but surfing, eating, surfing, and the day ending glass of Vino to warm us up. Anyway, enough of my story. This video also includes a separate trip, to the same location, except i was swapped for my buddy Tyler Larronde :) Enjoy.
Im not too sure how fashion in the surfing world got so big? But it did, and it is just outrageous. There has been many different phases with style, but there are a couple certain looks that are standing out more than ever. Either the Aussie hipster, messy looking lumberjack with tight jeans and a dirty beard, which doesnʻt make any sense whatsoever. Or the So Cal hipster with the jeans rolled up to the shin, some super cool printed stance socks, and most importantly the Byrd styled hair with maybe a little bleach or some sort of ridiculous color. Im not too sure, how or why this fashion forward attitude came into surfing. But, when we look past all of these outfits and focus on just surfing talent what do we see? Donʻt get me wrong, a lot of these beautiful fashionistas are incredibly talented surfers. However, the best of the best surfers, for example: John John and Kelly. Dress like normal people of society which is usually just a t-shirt / walkshort or jeans combination, no special fedoras or hair styles. Just normal clothing. So I wonder if people will catch on to this fact and will dressing normally come the new hip?! Or will people continue to push the limits of fashion in the surfing world? If so, I CANT WAIT TO SEE WHATS NEXT!
Its great to see the best surfer in the event win.
Nothing but good things to say about this.
So sick to watch.
Nothing wrong with a little selfie now and again. But I am gonna stick to the THROWBACK section of things, so here is me at the age of 12, trying to look like Jordy and trying to do a reverse on every wave :)
So Iʻve been trying to stay out of the blog scene for quite awhile, but I figure now is as good of a time as any to give my own, semi - humorous, outlook on the surfing world. First off , let it be known that i am not in any way a "hater", I just find some things a lot more ridiculous and pointless than others. So in saying that, I will try my best to have my fun with everything that myself, and these other fame seeking wave sliders are up to.
Mahalo you f*ckin surfers
