its been quite the run of good swell

ive been surfing lots, finding a few less crowded places...nowhere special, but special nonetheless...the comp is over, the tourists are heading back up the freeway. Soon the town will quieten down.

ive taken lots of photos, got a few addresses and driven about today and dropped of CD's of images for people.

Its making me happy.

here is Sunday morning...

 a stunning sunrise - no colour correction with these shots

posso perfection

this morning - posso's turned on, and the crowds turned up - and amidst the chaos of the crowd there were moments - like these.

here are my handplanes - my sanding and shaping and glassing need some serious refining - but even so, ive been out on one of these, and im having some fun - i doubt that i would feel the difference - my abilty on these things being somewhat lacking. But i got into shore-break barrels at 13th the other day - so at least i know what i looks like in there now!
Im addicted to these things.
and...ive gotten resin everywhere,

ive always had more than enough respect for those that have built the boards i ride, but now- tenfold, its a messy, complicated hard job, and these are just playthings made from scrap wood.

ive been making and having some fun with handplanes recently (affectionately termed the "cheeseboard") these little pieces of paulownia have had me scooting along little closeouts at 13th - with much merriment.
Picture to follow of my creations....
thought i'd share this little clip found via

hope you like....
ive got 3 or 4 of these things in the back of the van for anyone who wants a try, and a couple of pairs of ready for flat days....

we all do rad things with our bodies when flying alone, often unconscious - i love watching the body positions and little movements all associated with sliding along the face of waves. Here's a nice example...

one surfer and two lids enjoying some morning cleanness - a logger would have ruined the vibe...two days, when i've found waves, i've just shot them, not ridden them...whats wrong with me...?
