JB, Barb & LB with their finds. The little swell showing in the background had me thinking about running home and grabbing a log....We did lunch at the Bellevue in CMCH instead. Good Times!

While it has only been 3 years since I first met him in person, I have known "of" him for quite a long time. The USCG surfing corps always seemed pretty small and if someone found out you were a surfer, there was always the question, "Do you know so and so at Station Someplace? He surfs too." Anyway, Shawn worked with a close personal friend of mine and if there was ever a conversation about surfing, he always mentioned his DC1. Over the years I had read about him dominating the military surfing events and even once read his name mentioned in The Surfer's Journal in an article about Alaskan surfing. I was fortunate enough to spend a week in the Nicaraguan jungle last fall with him and some of his friends. It was a real treat to watch him take apart the waves at Colorados and Panga drops. Hands down, the finest surfer I have ever had the fortune to call a friend. An all around great guy and dedicated family man.
Shawn is still wearing the uniform and still ripping up the waves, albeit in SNJ these days. As a Section Commander over at the USCG Training Center, Chief Garry molds the future of the Coast Guard by training recruits at basic training. Sadly, it looks as though he will be leaving our line-up this year as he moves onward and upward. I wish him only the best and look forward to surfing with him as long as the good Lord will allow.

Had some good views of Mitchum on a few nice waves, but the poor cell phone just couldn't capture the moment.

Not much to write about in regard to waves. Last surf was Christmas eve and fortunately it was a fun one... Missed not being able to catch a surf new year's day, had a little streak going.
I really need to remedy this lack of a camera thing I have going on. Not all that fun posting photos on here that aren't mine. Pray'n for some waves...... Aloha!
