8' Bojo

Found this on Craigslist awhile back but could not pull off a purchase at the time. Fortunately for me, the seller was in no rush and said he'd hold on to it for a month or so before re-listing. Drove up to OCNJ to pick her up this AM. BeautiHULL! 8' Scott Anderson Malibu special, never ridden. Stoked to have another Bojorquez in my quiver.

Bojorquez duo -new 8' and what's left of my previous 9'2"

Friday AM

Early AM session at the Rocks with Roach and his friends from the FAA center. Chilly with the wind on it a little bit. Still fun with some wedges right off the jetty. The rights were lining up for some long slides while the lefts were short and fast. A few sets in the shoulder high range made it all the more enjoyable. Pretty fun way to wind down the work week. I have a strong dislike for this night shift I am on, but a morning surf during the week kinda takes the edge off.... Sorry, no photos. You'll just have to take my word for it. Aloha!

Treasures in the sand...

My wife took this photo a few weeks ago on one of our beach combing afternoons. I like it.

Big Wood

Dan, aka "Roach", is currently babysitting his buddy's Tom Wegener log. I have yet to see it in person but from the photos and the stories, she's a beast. Being on the night shift I missed a chance to see her slide yesterday afternoon but I am hoping for another opportunity in the near future. Here's hoping I get a chance to slide a few on her myself.... ;)

OCMD for the weekend.....

Family weekend in OCMD. Fun stay on the opposite side of the Bay. Took in a few sights and relaxed!!!

LB anchored on the boardwalk

El Dorados for Tacos de Pescado on the way down the coast.
LB with our Jarritos quiver.

Stopped by a few shops on Saturday. Chauncey's (53rd St.) had the best board selection, hands down. A great collection hanging from the ceiling as well as some vintage logs stacked along the wall in the back. Class of the new stock was a sweet Christenson glider on the display rack. Gloss black and just wicked! After commenting on a transitional era stringerless Farrelly that was hanging up. This 6' Christenson stringerless hull made an appearance. Board was sold but Zach here, pulled her from the back room so we could check it out. Breath of fresh air to meet folks like this. Cool shop, great boards, and the most Aloha on the beach. Check em out if you're in the area.

1EG hottie!

I've been following a young artist's blog for a few months now and really dig what she is doing. Her name is Kasey Tararuj and you can look her up at Art by KC. (see the "check these out" list to the right>>>)

1EG stands for "one eyed girl" and this one is my new favorite. ;)

Prayers for Japan

Although a world away, our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters effected by the earthquake and tsunami.

Windy Monday

Monday afternoon at the rocks. NW wind howled all day and by late afternoon things were groomed to near perfection. Paddled out at low tide and for an hour or so it was near perfect. Saw Chuck D. get into some nice ones. Fun session with just a few friends.
