25 May, 2009 : - - A few weeks ago I did a column on the art of the 'Moon.' I half expected my editor to kick it back to me, as this is sort of a grey subject matter in a family paper. But it ran and the response was incredible. I also thought if it did run I would get a lot of librarians and mothers scolding me fo
20 May, 2009 : - - Ya know I was thinking that something that seems to have unfortunately gone out of style is the good old-fashioned 'moon.' Not the one up in the sky at night. The act of dropping your pants at just the right moment and flashing a big bare butt. We used to call it a 'B.A.' Bare ass. It can be s
17 May, 2009 : - - Ya know folks; there are people who can see dark side of everything. The frowny faces who never can be happy no matter how wonderful things are. The surf can be ten feet and perfect with 80-degree water and nobody out and they will say, 'yeah, but where are the naked babes on the beach?'
4 May, 2009 : - - The other day I was sitting on the beach watching a kite surfer screaming along the waves and getting big airs. I was thinking that it really looked like a lot of fun. My dentist, Bob Levin, has been doing it for years and has told me about it many times while drilling huge gold mines in my teeth.
21 April, 2009 : - - The other night I was sitting around with my pal the Iguana and a couple of young surfers who were in town to catch the swell that was about to hit. As tends to be the case when young guys are around they like to ask questions about the old days and 'did you know so and so' and 'what was so and
3 April, 2009 : - - The other day I got an email regarding the current series I am doing on Huntington Beach in my Saturday column in the LOCAL section of the Register. This reader asked me who I thought was the greatest surfer at the Huntington Beach Pier over the past 50 plus years that I have been surfing that s
30 March, 2009 : - - When I heard the news about that Crocodile dude getting killed by a stingray it really bummed me out. First off I liked that dude. His shows were always really entertaining and I liked his spirit and his nerve to do some of the stuff he did with some of the nasty biting beastie things that he d
27 March, 2009 : - - When I was a little kid and making my first trips to Hawaii one of the places that I liked to surf a lot was Makaha Beach. Makaha is on the west shore of the island of Oahu and for the most part has never been a real haole friendly surf spot.
18 March, 2009 : - - In honor of the 100th year anniversary of Huntington Beach I have been doing a series on my own personal memories in that town. I haven't been around the whole century, it just feels like it. For me it's been over half of that though.
5 March, 2009 : - - In honor of Huntington Beach turning 100, and that's even older than me, I am in the midst of a little series on my favorite memories of that town. Having been part of the scenery there for more than half of the 100 has been a great thing for me. Last week I left off talking about my first surfing
14 February, 2009 : - - One of the hardest parts of becoming a surfing senior citizen, or as is more often used as a more apt discription within the surf community, a geezer, is that more and more people you know keep passing away. It gets to be a drag getting the news that somebody that you know, who more often tha
12 February, 2009 : - - Somebody was asking me this morning what size waves are the best to ride. This is an interesting question really. The answer is totally different for any number of people for a while bunch of different reasons.
9 February, 2009 : - - O.K. this has been a cold winter so far here in the normally mild climated Surf City. Yeah, the last week has been nice but for the most part it has been freezing. Burrrrrrrrittos! The other day I was chit chatting with some dudes while checking the surf and stories were being tossed out as
