The surf was pretty good, Friday and Saturday the waves were delicious and thankfully sunday was super windy so I did some kite surfing and packed it in. Unfortunately while the sets were well spaced off the point they stayed under the 15 foot mark where the tubes get gnarly and such.

But girls in bikini, beers and bonfires and safety meetings on the water make up for that. Plus I'm going big wave surfing soon anyways so the carving was fun.

Yeah I'm looking at that Jamis but that green would have to go.

Hey all,

I've been lurking around off and on for a couple of weeks now - in between grueling stretches of coding additions to the interslice - and just wanted to say, yo.

I noticed there are a bunch of people who like to hook up and tear it up around the city. I'd like to get in on some of that action when next you ride, if that's cool. I'm also down for some serious swilling of various ales and spirits (and teas) as well as any other general mischeif that may occur.

That is all. Hope to see you's out and about!

traffic jammer: thanks for the heads up!
drbenway: welcome! We're past due on a get together I think, so I think a nice cold weather ride finished with some libations to warm up sounds like a great idea.

Thanks Traffic, they're a pretty good store and right near me, I will definetely check out the sale.

I think $350 for that Jamis frame/fork is a bit much, you can do better. Get a carbon cross fork from Nashbar or eBay for 60$USD and pop it on an old road frame while you are waiting for the perfect frame.

You, Mr. Jammer, rock hard thank you. Big wave to me is beyond 25 feet, biggest I've done was pull ins on 30-35 footers. But I don't do anything I can paddle into anymore so 25 feet is about as big as it gets for me these days.

For big wave I'm all about cali, would love to do Hawaii but its to expensive to get there and the locals are annoying.

SICK BOY, that boy's got soul!!!! Where do you find 20-25+ feet in Cali? I thought California was all short gun tri-fin stuff.....or is that in the summer?

You have been warned!

I don't know what it is...but I am resisting the urge to launch airs off things lately.
Too long on the surface perhaps?

Operator's a girl?

sending my brother to family functions will usually suffice but not this time. maybe i'll stop into SP if i get back before four. nice shop, that's where i bought my tiny UTW bag. Speaking of which: does anyone know if you can by an insert or some such thing for a messenger bag that would protect my camera (and make it easy to take in / out)? i know crumpler makes some but i don't want to buy a whole new satchel...

Send an e-mail to Anais at UTW. I am sure she would be happy to make something for that purpose.

i'd suggest going to a camera supply store and buying some of the high density foam sheets you can get for older cases/pelican cases. The kind you can carve out any shape you like. Just shape for your camera, secure in bag and your done.
