SUPer fun at DogPatch

Spent the weekend surfing my brains out at DogPatch... love that spot! Where else can you have a stand up friendly zone inhabited by a surfer-friendly white shark with a beach scene unmatched in all of California (you wanna see cool surfer vans... this is the place). Thanks to the DogPatch locals for the friendly vibe and welcome and thanks to the big New Zealand swell for making it interesting. By the way, if you want to see some real stand up paddle ripping (in a word: CD Kinley... homeboy kills it) get yourself down to the Patch- these guys make somethin' out of nothing (Patch is pretty soft)- it's pretty inspiring.

Hey Jon,

Stoked to run into you and see your boy tearing it up for, seriously, like three consecutive non-stop hours of stand up paddling...da hummingbird!

I should have paddled over to Nukes that day- looks like you and the others have that spot wired!

I'll be back- hope to run into you and the family again soon!

Nah not me, I was on a 8'5 Hokua first time on the new ride. I'm usually on a 9'6 Nalu.
