Lesson #15: Never underestimate the power of expensive surf equipment.

My friend Mike lamenting his disturbingly standard plastic fins.
So it’s been awhile.  My apologies for the lack of posts recently.  A serious case of bronchitis is the unfortunate cause.  But now I am back in the land of the living, so to all 4.5 of you who have really been missing your daily dose of stupid surf-related insights, hold on to your hats! ...

Nope, We Are Not Above This…
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:  Squirrels are funny. Many thanks to my dear friend Andrew Montgomery, who probably does not want to be recognized for these. But let’s face it Andrew, the world needs this. Recommend on Facebook Tweet about it Tell a friend...

Weird Boards

Weird Boards
Becoming highly respected as a surfer is a difficult task these days. On one hand people want to see the “modern ripper” and on the other, the classic waterman.  In other words, can you pull huge airs on hi-tech thrusters and then paddle out on something akin to a door and look just as stylish? ...

Lesson #14: Protecting Your Board From Your Non-Surfing Friends

A (Fantastic) Booger Joke

Don't worry boogers.  You're still cool.
No, not that kind of booger. The other kind, the kind that rides waves lying down.  Enjoy… So I was at 7-eleven the other night.  Had my boogie board in the back seat of my car and went in to get a coke.  But while I was waiting in line, I realized in a slight panic ...

A Love Letter To A Spammer

A Love Letter To A Spammer
Okay, this is not actually a love letter.  It’s more like a DTR (“define the relationship”) with the folks at LearnEnglishWriting.com, who have spammed me with nonsense comments every single day since this blog was created.  Okay, it’s not entirely a DTR.  It’s also just a fun experiment to see if I can get them ...

Lesson #13: Simple Surfer Bragging Etiquette

Lesson #13: Simple Surfer Bragging Etiquette
Let’s be honest.  Trying not to brag to your friend about a fun surf session after he couldn’t make it is like trying not to name a beach vacation home some awful sea-pun like “Fant-A-Sea”, “Sandsational”, or “Life’s A Beach”. Though it is clearly morally reprehensible to do so, you really...

First Comic: T-Rex Shredding (Of Course)

First Comic: T-Rex Shredding (Of Course)
Of course we had to open up our new comic section with a dinosaur doing a backside lip bash.  That was a given.  Thank you to Travis Kesler for his brilliant artistry, truly capturing the heart of what it means to be a large prehistoric beast with a passion for wave-riding.
