18 June, 2012 : - I did something rare for me today. I watched the final rounds of the Fiji Professional surf event on the Internet. My Internet is too slow; I have the old smoke signal speed with 1 milabit of bandwidth, to watch any kind of video or live feed. But we were at my mother-in-law's house and she has high
15 May, 2012 : - I have been a fan of surfing magazines ever since the very first Surfer magazine came out, and I rode my bike over to Robert August's house to buy one from him at three times the cover price. When I was a kid, I would cut out my favorite photos and tape them all over the walls and ceiling in my bedro
14 May, 2012 : - I wanna begin the story of George Douglas Freeth. George was a Hawaiian born surfer who is credited with starting surfing here in California in the early 1900's. After surfing for getting close to 60 years, and having heard the name George Freeth many times in conjunction with early California surfin
14 January, 2012 : - A constant question in the surfing these days is 'will Kelly Slater go for World Title number 12 in '12?' This remains to be determined as I understand it. From what I have heard Kelly will compete in the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast. The feeling is that it's a 'let's see what happens and then go fr
7 March, 2011 : - - I got an interesting 'Snake Pit' story today that involves my old pal Bob Moore, former lifeguard at Doheny State Park in Dana Point. I will get to that at the end of this story, but I thought I would reminisce a little bit first about the Glory Days at Doheny Beach.
3 January, 2011 : - - Geze Louise, has yet another year come and gone? It's true, time flies when you're havin' fun. I must have been having really a lot of fun too because 2010 flew by like the roadrunner getting chased by Wylie Coyote...
23 July, 2010 : - The last 16 men and women athletes for the Oakley Pro Junior San Sebastian were decided during another exciting day of competition at the main beach break of La Zurriola. The event saw Europe’s best male and female surfers come together to do battle for the...............
2 June, 2010 : - - Today I have the completion of Dave Schulte's story on the local sharks that inhabit the Trail #1 area of San Onofre Surf Beach. I contacted Dave, as he seems to be the expert on this and the dude who shot the famous video that has been seen on zillions of television shows...
16 April, 2010 : - - A lot of times, when the zillions of great surfers to come out of Huntington Beach gets talked about, they forget to mention Herbie Fletcher. That is probably because he has lived in the southern end of Orange County for so long...
19 March, 2010 : - - Yep, it's another exciting adventure into surf lingo. But fret not loyal readers, I am soon coming to the end of the alphabet and this longer-than-I-ever-thought-it-was-gonna-be series will be over.
11 March, 2010 : - - Yes loyal fans, this week we have yet another installment into the wonderful world of surf terminology. I want to point out that I only started this series as a public service for those who don't surf and need to communicate, at least a little bit, with those friends and family who do surf.
21 January, 2010 : - - Some years ago, I did a standup comedy routine for the Surfer Magazine television show. On one of the shows, I did a thing on surf terminology that became popular, even leading to one of my words becoming used on a TV sitcom a year or so later. I have done terminology here before, but I still g
15 December, 2009 : - - Last week I did my yearly 'great gift ideas for surfers' column and thought I had it pretty well covered. But then how can you ever have that subject even close to being well covered? There is always a ton of more cool stuff out there waiting to make its way into the feverish fingers of some s
