another cold and dry weekend.. i havent snapped a photo in way too long. havent been able to surf in a way too long..cabin fever has set in but comfort is found being found in the warm tones of a stratocaster..

That last step to the tip is so elusive and rare for me..while my success percentage is slowly increasing, too often i get enjoyably stuck in trim about 6 inches from the tip. I'll choose to blame this pattern on our inconsistent waves and my lack of commitment to logging when swell moves to a long period interval rather than my ability level... yeah right, i am sure my BS is pretty transparent. When i do get to the tip, the ride is rather short lived because I stubbornly refuse to pay attention to the subtle and not so subtle signs of enpending doom. I envy the guys I know who regularly stick the noseride!! live and learn and i gotta commit to more practice...

It's a rare occasion that someone aims their lens at me when i am in the line-up; however i was lucky enough to be digitally captured on Saturday afternoon by Robert Wands.......
Saturday was a complete surprise, great little log session. I kinda wrote the day off but a nagging impulse kept pushing me to "go check it". I stumbled upon a fairly consistent knee/thigh to occasional waist high peelers. Perfect light off shore breezy and a wave that broke from the outside all the way in without sectioning. Oddly a satisfying day. Loving my Tyler 9'9 Point model.
Kinda tough to stay in sync with surfing when the surf conditions dictate that you can only get in the water once every two weeks. This winter has been as dreadful as I can remember as we have been plagued by a lack of consistent surf and a heavy sideshore wind pattern.

Before i got back into shooting film, I was playing around with captured video stills from some of my favorite surf film scenes. i was then using photoshop to play with the image a bit. this is a manipulated screen grab from the Cape St Francis segment of the Endless Summer. This scene is so important to the history of surfing and the sense of adventure that is brought to surfing. looking back the manipulated image comes across as kind of cliche but I kind of like it nonetheless..
