New York, Neeeeewww York.....

Speed blurrrrrrr


The Tappan Zee. Went under it a few times in the mid 1980s, first time across it.

YES!

Shady Dave is one righteous dude


Pretty sure there's a legend there.





Hope to surf it in the morning.

No show....

First light at the Rocks and no sign of Cristobal.

Late afternoon session was a little better but nothing close to what was going on up the coast. Guess we were just outside the swell window on this one.

A little bit of Cristobal. Maybe....

 Over at the Rocks early AM hoping for a little pulse. Storm was still well south of Hatteras but one does hope for a surprise now and then. Never know unless you go.

Lite crowd. Plenty of room for the 4 of us.

Surfboards are cool

Roach and J-Rob stopped by the Goofyfoot's Garage last night and brought some conversation fuel along with em. A few cervezas were consumed, board designs were discussed and rails were rubbed. Good times!

Roach brought his latest creation from the planner of Marc Andreini. 9'2" "Mc K".
A blend of McTavish and Special K.  So nice!

Corky Flexible


A rare bird appears in the Tidewater region.  https://norfolk.craigslist.org/spo/4622913401.html
No dims listed and I did not bother to call. Looks clean in the limited photos posted. It doesn't look $2000 clean but that would just be my humble opinion. I've only ever seen one of these. Go get it!

Wife snaps a few...

The "Queen" was across the bay with her GFs this weekend and stopped by Chauncey's in OCMD to snap a few photos for me. Always some nice old logs hanging around in that shop. Thanks sweetie.
 
Not vintage but not too shabby for $500




A lovely 5 stick DK and a rather notorious wild woman from Delaware! :)

Life is a journey....


Haleakala 2007

As he steps onto a plane this morning, I can only wonder when the next time will be when we get to see him again. Over the last 6 years we've become accustomed to few visits but it was nice to have him nearby for a little while. We'll miss him dearly but wish him all the happiness and joy a heart can hold as he starts a new chapter of his life on the other side of the world.
