great to see and hear all the great surf stories filtering in from this
last Spring vacation. And the boys of Winter Are Back
as well. Alex and Lars have returned from Oahu
and have a whole lifetime worth of North Shore experience to
share with all the eager groms. Tobey and Mike Stanek
also made the Hawaiian rounds this past Winter. As did
my old friends the Crawfords from Cape Ann. The local
Surf families like the Nichols and the Evans packed a
solid week's worth of high powered surfing in Puerto Rico and
Costa Rica. The Nichols hit PR and got it good
all week and the Evans scored BIG in CR. Including a mind-blowing
trip out to Ollies Point. If you've ever been to CR and
Ollies you know how magical that place can get. Word has it that
Matt Evans was killing it at Ollies. And little Mike
was right behind him. And...we heard that Big Daddy Rick got
the set of the day that same afternoon.
1979- Riding the FISH at the Wall
Some say the FISH can't hold on a bottom turn. That may be true in bigger waves. But here on my old 6'2" Black FISH I was able to connect off the bottom and skate across sections. *Yes, the water was that warm this day. No wettie required. Late July 1979. I have always liked riding that old board. Now I have a new one and my surfing has been Fun again. When in doubt GO FISHING! Just Ask Markey J. Photo by Larry Crateau
2006 Holding The FISH after Surfing the Wall
This shape is very similar to the board I'm riding above. I can tell you, that the feeling is the same. FUN!

Another photoshop joke. Imagine pulling up at the Wall with this baby? Actually Tiger lost is dad last week. By all accounts, he sounded like a great guy and a super dad. So RIP Mr Woods.
