Lots of activity this weekend: I had a great time visiting my friends up North. I'm definitely returning to the Malibu coast. The water's beautiful- and there's some fun little olas escondidas; Malibu's definitely holding. A wise man, the Surfing Fire Fighter (check his blog here), perfectly framed it with his observation that we scored waves, "hiding in plain site". Given our proximity to at least a billion Angelenos, nine movie star palaces and one Cher, I'd have to agree.
Also in plain site were the glassy, extended play lefts peeling off here in San Diego- again, it's just a matter of getting out and looking. An interesting comparison: two different spots, two major cities- both waves relatively empty. They're out there folks- put on your walking shoes and go find 'em. Top Photo: Spidey
The Giapetto Project Update: Our favorite boardsmith, Andy G., is cranking through his hollow, all wood SUB project. Andy had his plans printed to scale and is now in the process of producing ribs for the board. And I just thought ribs were for barbecuing and marrying. Photo: Giapetto
