missing my picture taker....

Missing my Olympus. Have seen plenty of sights these last few weeks and it would have been nice to have a few on film, or .jpg digital stuff. Spent last week on the "U P" of Michigan at a tower rescue course. I had not been in that area of MI before and was very stoked by the views. Birch trees, big boulders, and gorgeous water. The aqua greens and dark blues painted the lakes quite nicely. Got home late Friday night and just in time to score some hurricane Danielle swell as she passed by. More great shots submitted only to my memory. Fun, but not epic. One nice dry barrel on Monday morning made my day and then some....

A few cell phone shots from the St. Mary's river area.

Dark side of the lens

Just saw this and thought that I'd share. Can't figure out how to post the video, so here's a link. Mr. Smith has it figured out. Enjoy!

New Zeph YYZ - day one

Some left over south swell still hanging around this morning. Not real organized but a few clean walls were there for the taking. Board slides into waves so nice and smooth like it wants to ride the wave as much as I do. Loves to cutback, no drag or dig, just smooth and clean. Had a few sets in the chest /shoulder range and it flys. Late takeoff into a few and it held a nice high line right in the pocket. Not much opportunity to get on the tip but a few short trips up near the nose were easy due to the stability of this shape. Happy I made the move to get this!

Little sister and family slid into town for a quick overnight visit. Our young nephew Michael got a chance to grab a few little waves friday night and saturday AM. A shame there wasn't more swell in the water but he still managed to get a little stoke in the Garden State. LB thoroughly enjoyed seeing his cousins and Rachael was an angel for putting up with her little cousin and his eagerness to play every game known to the average 9 year old. ;) Good times!
