Well this past weekend I competed in my first ever surf comp. The Cosmic Creek. The Cosmic Creek is a flash back contest where you have to surf on twin fin boards from the 80's and single fin boards from the 70's. You are in 15 min heats up against your peers. The waves were good and the surfing was top notch. Now like is said this is my first ever contest and I was going up against guys who surf in contest all the time. But I enter for fun and to enjoy myself. I found out a lot about myself in this comp. For one I am way out of shape. The heat was only 15 mins. long but like I said this is a flash back contest so (no leashes). Well on my second wave I lost my board and had to swim in and get it and get back out to the line up before my heat was over. And this is when I found out that I am a fatty. It has really made me want to get back in shape. So I didn't advance. But I had a great time and had the biggest smile on my face. I mean hell I went out and surfed against guys who do it for a living. I look forward to trying again next year. Along with the the surf contest was a concert with Donovan and friends and those friends were Sugar Ray, Timmy Curren, and WARREN G. Well take a look at the photos I hope you like. More to come later when my brother finds his camera. ENJOY!

New Family Member

Today I got my hands on one of AI's (Andy Irons) boards. I was stoked for a few reason. One I had just got rid of two boards yesterday. So the money I made from that paid for this one and then some. But also it's AI board. Now I don't know how many of you out there in blogger world have rode a Pro Surfers board, but they are MAGIC! These boards are hand shaped, none of this machine shaping. So they preform so much better. My new baby has a sweet air brush. She stands 5'8" tall with her waist coming in at 18". I am looking forward to ripping this baby in tomorrow. Attached above are a few photos of the new board and the rest of the new boards from the past month and the rest of the family in their beds. ENJOY!

As most of you know I love music. I have always had this love my ipod shows my love by the 14,000+ songs on it. Well over the past year I have fallen in love with going to shows. As you can see by the Bravery photos below. But in the past week I have bought tickets to see four more shows. I am going to see the Detour show, The Ting Tings, The Sounds and Yelle. These shows are all going to be AMZING shows. Three of the bands are from the UK and dont come to the states all that much. This is going to be a real treat for me. I cant wait. ENJOY!

Just Add Water

Last night I got to go to the Quiksilver premier of their new surf flick Clay Marzo: Just Add Water. The movie is not just your average surf porn movie. It is a movie about this amazing surfer with Asperger's. It's show cause an awareness-raising gilmpse into his life and mind as he comes to understand both the gifts and the challenges of living with Asperger's. It was an amazing thing to see and to get an understanding of it myself. I feel everyone should see this movie surfer or not. It's not everyday a surf movie makes you cry and this movie will make you. Along with this being a great movie in its self a portion of the sales goes to Surfers Healing. Surfers Healing is a great organization that helps kids with autism by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing. So check out the film and the website. ENJOY!
