I got to go snowboarding last week. I wouldn’t call this a rare occasion, but it only happens about once a year if I am lucky. I really cherish these trips to the mountain though; I mean I seriously enjoy every minute of it. Snowboarding, in my opinion, has a lot of parallels to surfing. […]
An interesting situation arose while I was having great surf about two months ago that I would like to share with you. I thought about writing a post in dedication to this state of affairs immediately after, but I decided to let the emotions settle. I was hot. The waves were extremely fun, […]
I hate the acronym FOMO. I typically tend to hate any trend I catch whiff of. I’ve thought about this long and hard, and I really can’t determine the source of my discontent. My immediate reasoning is to say that I despise when people don’t think for themselves. Quickly thereafter, I may find myself […]
Happy New Year. Welcome to another post you are probably wondering why you are reading. I appreciate your time and support, sincerely.

3 Day Lot Rule
I was recently exposed to a bitter suggestion from a local around my parts that I would like to share with you. Actually, it was at least a year ago, possibly longer, and at the time I definitely just laughed off the proposition. He’s quite the talker – almost any time I run into him […]
Why Do You Surf?

So… Whats Next?
“Unprecedented Times” This phrase has never been thrown around more so than in the past month. Just go to your email inbox, type it into the search box and re-read how many times you’ve been hit with that phrase, coupled with something along the lines of, “we’re here for you/we’ll get through this together.” I […]
