Rolling along after work yesterday along 133, I saw these two beauties. It was worth risking getting run over.

An auspicious start to Spring! A good sign? You know in the aries/mars/orange/things I love way? I'm 90% sure the silver tanked job is my friend Christian's.

Christian is this yours (below)? I can't wait to throw a leg over and just check it out. If not, good taste whoever you are!

First time surfing in almost 3 months or how Hintlian got his groove back

Satisfaction! There's so little of it, is the word still in the dictionary?

December 24 was the last time I was in the water, seems like ages. But it was't the torture I had feared. Why? Well around here the Winter was freakishly flat and especially freezing, so I didn't miss much. Also work has been insanely busy, helping the time fly. My ear feels so much better, and music brings me the same thrill it did in my younger days; so it was well worth it the time out. I never got the tattoo though.

So the wingnose worked well. At the local place around here the waves were especially punchy & fast, and the water is only 36° (2° centigrade) despite the acceptably mild air temps.

This board has quite a pronounced kick about a third the way back. The original owner/shaper is Tyler himself. His advice: "the board will plow and be a real dog unless you're on the nose". So there's zero fudge factor here.

The last 2 waves were the best; a left and a right I kooked out on but whatever - getting you're groove back is the important thing

First new pics in ages.

Nothing too memorable, but I haven't shot pictures in the longest time.

This has been a very busy Winter - snowed under with work, snowed under with snow, successful day surgery, and a big big move for me. Now that we're getting through it all, plans are to be on the business end of the camera a lot more.

This is the new place.
Also, Aperture by Apple - here's so much to learn, but all I can say to my fellow Mac heads is ditch photoshop and hit up the App Store - $80 download 'n done.

Don't worry, the Hansens will come down from the rafters this Summer.

Ever wonder what a Crossfit Paleo Potluck supper/Surf movie night looks like? I didn't think so either but here are 2 pics.

Yet more Tyler board porn - yet more kiyo pictures


9'2" mini gun - that's Josh, he rips



7-something Magneato model - I gotta try one of these




10'5" Noserider mdel, my favorite of the bunch. 10'5" necessary with all the morons out there these days. My next shred when the golden winged ship passes my way.


Lord save me from the things I want.
