Fun Up North the Other Day

Finally shedding the winter rubber, my God am I out of shape! DSC01433.jpg DSC01422.jpg DSC01445.jpg DSC01437.jpg

New Lagoons at Crane Beach

Yeah I named a spot because there's no surf there. All that Winter storminess made some really deep (5-6') lagoons on both ends of the beach. DSC03084.jpg DSC03076.jpg
While the water is still a brisk 54°, it was close to 60 ° in these, and no - there were no little kids at the beach that day so I know the warmth came from the sun on the shallow water!

Throwback Thursday - Calling all G&S Hot Curls

Such cool boards! I blew the opportunity to buy a very clean 9'4" back in 1996 for $300.

It's nice to see that Gordon and Smith has brought these back.  Anyone out there have one of the new reproductions?  Check it out here. I'd love to know how they ride. In the meantime set the wayback machine for 1968, Peabody.

Happy mother's day to all you mom's (and mum's) out there. 

And happy mother's day to the best mother anyone could with for!

Gross Out Special: Sidelined by Dog Bite while Cycling

This happened 2 weeks ago. All patched up & doing fine, but the wound will keep me high and dry for a few more days.

Fun from the Past Few Days

I'm getting back into a surf-ier lifestyle. What's that? It's a life focus fitness, diet, and keeping up on forecasts. And let's dace it, at 53 I'm no spring chicken, so I'll need to look into yoga to keep them joints open. That said I was still quite the donkey lately. This nor the 42° water hasn't dampened the good times riding an 11 sec. swell the past few days.
