Rocktober Ends with Tasty Leftovers

Fun, but a little closed out.
IMG_7841
This is the Almond I picked up in the Weber Performer swap - Dave Allee & crew indeed made fine surfing boards. It has a pig outline (wide point a little aft of center) and is very much at home on beach breaks. D-fins were never really a preference of mine, but it works "just swell" and is gorgeous to look at. Check out Almond Surfboards.

I have a surfboard glut now - keep that in mind, friends.

I can fit a 10' along with a 9' inside my Honda Civic.

Sligtly more fun than it looks.

Rocktober Nor'easter, 1st of the Season

A little too big & out of control around here - crazy rips too.

But Devereaux was fun until 3 ill-mannered standup types arrived acting like they owned the place. They did not let a single wave go by, a few bad apples I SUPose, leave it to me to find them.

I shot film, video, digital - can't wait to see the film - using an ancient 300mm lens. I wanted to shoot red SUP guy with a 9mm, or maybe .308Win.

But the drops were amazing, despite the 45° temps, obigatory strog wind, and gloves that stayed on the kitchen table.

Rocktober Almond Harvest

IMG_7757
The Weber Performer was swapped for an Almond Surf Thump. It's their pig outline, and this particular board as Almond's founder & shaper Dave Alee's very own.
IMG_7739
The transaction took place down in RI, and it was so satisfying not only to find out the new board rides the @#$%, but to be able to do so ten minutes after shaking hands on the deal.

This is an extremely nifty board. Here she is in Newport Beach with her Daddy & 1st owner.
About a year ago I had the coolest time visiting the Almond shop in Newort Beach, and shooting the shit with Dave Allee & crew. Great folks, great shop & great boards - watch for them.
Pretty amped!




below: No significance here - I just liked the logo. The place is in Portugal.

Parking garage where I work - Stark Angles and a clone Shelby Mustang

The angles and conctrete were so cold and stark - playing around with blask & white. Almost like '60's brutalist architecture.

They're installing solar panels on teh roof of the car park - we salute that.

But the Mustang was cool, an authentic Shelby? Hmmm, but the owner's heart is in the right place.

Locally: Windy, Welcome

IMG_7695
Better than I thought but with strong-ass winds which werern't quite sideshore, but not offshore either. Double extra high tide made the place different, not worse, just different. Good thing, now that I think about it.

You worked for the fun this time.

Finally back at the car dripping & this photo-shoot's going on.

-The photographers. But the wedding party thought it was a riot.

Best wishes to the newlyweds, you got a super day.

Water-folk and friends; just take a moment to check it out - all in the Mediterranean, I'm getting tired of "favorite-ing" all his pictures!

Ophelia Starts Fall with a Bang

For a lot of folks. It's understood, it was bigger at other places.
IMG_7645
But friends would cycle in and out of the lineup, 3 max. I pull up and was too amped to wait for a bigger set wave to shoot - gotta pull on that rubber and paddle out might the donkey stampede arrive.

And another Lysergic sunset:
