Description:

Wow! Sick wave...

Very tight local crew...3 hours and only 6 waves.

 I was one of two non locals. The other guy got heckled pretty bad by a mob of Hawaiins. Funny though, the dude making the biggest stink may have been born in Hawaii but was definately of Japanese decent. Anybody ever taken notice of what the Japanese have done to Hawaii? One local dude that was catching a lot of waves dropped in on me blatenly. He definately wasn't a purebred either. Not much really different here. Good waves always brings out the ugly greediness in people.

 Somehow the locs will make the unmakeable sections riding really close to the point of impact of the lip to the face and then just pull under the curtian and get shacked, so don't assume they ain't gonna make it!  Awesome to watch how wired they have it.

 This place has got the juice. Real mellow take off that just jacks at the last minute and throws out. Can't wait to surf it again.

Same little lineup crap at any localized spot. Just don't expect much and you will be rewarded.

I've worked up to this spot. 15 years water time or so and I was still low man on the totem pole. Be respectful and know your experience level.

 By the way...Thank you to the true Hawaiian King! Biggest hawaiian dude in the water gratiously gave up my wave of the day. Aloha and Mahalo.

If you want to see what it looked like. Go to Hawaiianwatershots.com and check out the 4/18/08 shots of Bowls.

This was my first surfing lesson ever. The shore break was killer, mainly due to the massive sand bars. Ate a lot of sand that day. Only after the lesson did the instructor suggest other places that were more beginner-friendly along the east coast of Australia. (See Noosa.)

Good waves coming in from the north west. Caught biggest and best waves crashing into the sandbar in the middle of the beach. Started at about 2pm and it was probably 1.2m then at about 4.30/5 the waves peaked and were close to 1.7/1.8. Fun left and right rides, even if they were short. Hopefully some more action in the south china sea will send some more waves our way soon.

This was my second surf lesson. It started out as crap because the board they gave me had been repaired and broke. Luckily, the instructor, Sammy, had the afternoon off and offered a private lesson to make it up to me. How awesome was that!

The waves this day totally made up for the bad day in Surfer. Still ate a lot of sand, but I got up several times and loved every second!

Cool

I went to Spain on early july . I brought my beloved 6'8 Rawson pintail .

The waves could have been a little bigger , or my board a little more like a fish , but the waves were fun and i could take speed to ride the waves up to the shore and lay a trick onthis summer friendly wave . The place is so beautyfull , the apple juice is awsome , pepole are charming , our host was totaly amasing and we saw Carlos Santana in Oviedo or somewhere .

Spain is great . I love Spain

Berk

I was in a bordind school that year . What happend is that I felt like surfing rather than schooling in september , just after spending july and august surfing Lacanau ( France ) on my Pipe Dream 6'6 . My friend and i decided to stay in his parents for the weekend . My mate got his driving license a few month ago and I introduced him to surf during the past summer . his parents offered him a malibu . He became a surf searcher in about 3 month , and I could see the changes in him , like he got less potato couch , he spent less time sleeping , he felt really better .

the weather was more like a romantique and hard weather dark cloud painting and brown sea with tinny multipeak braeks sometimes glassy . Not really a surf spot ? I'd rather say the funniest uncrowded , unexpected surf spot . I spent 1h30 in the water , taking as much wave I could . After , we felt like having hot chocolate . There is a lot of " Pubs " around , you can find the crowd there while it's raining outside .

Ok , Berk isn't Uluwatu , but it's fine for me as far as I shared a really good time with my mate and surfed like a dum alone on this mud/sand beach , and I missed school for a day .

Description:

My "surfing birthday". I dont remember the day but i sure still remember the feeling! And friends! and the days of that summer after the "birth".

 I was 16 years old. My brother 15. Another friend with a "Boogie Board" (that used to be the name of that fucking thing... now is "Body Board"). And two girl friends.

We took a strangers hike from the ferryboat at Setúbal. Walk thru the camping on both sides of the sandroad. It was high tide and we had to wait for about 2/3 hours to see waves breaking on the out side. Then we enter the sea and wait, with water by the waist and standing up with feets on the sand. Every time a wave came we jumped to the board - the timing had to be right - and let the wave take us until we believe it was ok to stand up and ride the foam.

I remember it clear as ever.  I was only eight years old and had just got the board about a month before for my birthdaay.  I had already learnt to stand up about 9 months before hand on a boogie board and was still pretty green with a fiberglass board.  I was catching white water and got a sick reform in the shory.  It formed up on a mad left.  They kept commong ththrough consistently, but as a full super grom was strugglig to paddle against the rip.  I only got that one wave that was wearth talking about (or so I thought at the time!) and was so frothing that I went strait home to tell my mum.

 

The funny thing is that I have had sick waves almost every boxing day since.

COOL !

 My first session ever . I was born the same year , a few month ago .

I could hardly walk yet , so my father just sat me on this olddie Original Farrely single waxed with Parafine and pushed me into tiny waves .

The water was warm , I felt safe and had great fun .

Since that day , I returned to Lacanau every summer . I know this place for years now , and feel the same intense and incredible exitement each time I approach to Lacanau . It usually begins when I drive into " Lacanau Ville " . 

It has something with the shinning or something to me . it's hard to explain .

My mates and I surfed here damn near everyday.

She was a harsh teacher.

Pitched, or over the falls was a typical fate if your timing is off

Kick out and land on the back of the wave then you're gone.

Get it wired and the tube awaits.

Lee Pope was the master.  I first saw him take off in front of the jetty and he backdoored a 6 foooter.  He rode an eggy, green board with a black arrow.

 Phia  phiaphia2

 

Back in the late 60’s was over of the northwest coast of the north island of New Zealand at a spot called Phia with three buddies from the Gold Coast, OZ. A pacific cyclone in the Tasman Sea was producing giant surf added to the fact that NZ (being volcanic) has little continental shelf and has a huge tidal difference we had to wait for high tide to even think about trying to get out.

 

After high tide we watched from the shore and waited half an hour for a lull before we made it out through the mass of white water. We picked off a couple of the smaller (cleaner) but still overhead peaks that did not totally wall out when we looked out to sea and saw mountains marching in … feathering on an outside reef in deep water a mile out!

 

What to do … too far out to paddle in past the impact zone … not far out to make it over the top … I looked at my buddy as we scratched for the horizon and said “I’m going to take off on the first wave and prone out.”  “Yeah me too he said!”

 

As the first mountain walled up we both spun around … and took off.  I made the drop … shot way out in front of the wave … then proned out lying way back by the tail holding on with a death grip … took the concussion and bounced, slapped and skipped engulfed inwhite water all the way to the shore.

 

Robbie Acton made it also but Stu Adams kept paddling out to sea .... finally he took off on a monster … must have been 20 feet.  He made the drop and turn then just got wasted … (we looked around for help none he was on his own) took him an hour to swim in … got swept a mile down the beach and just collapsed on the sand ... his board disappeared!

Description:

Crescent Heads, OZSunbeam

 

 

 

Wednesday a November dawn in early summer at Crescent Heads on the north east coast of New South Wales, Australia 1967.  The first rays of gold and red upon the ocean revealed perfect lines marching in around the point with sets from shoulder to overhead feathering in the light SE offshore breeze. Warm water, sand and cobblestone bottom lined a rocky headland with a scattering of Pandanas Palms ... no one out!

 

My three mates and I had driven the several hundred miles south from Queensland on PCH in a Sumbeam Rapier (Hitchcock used the marque in the 1955 classic "To Catch a Thief" with Grace Kelly and Cary Grant driving a 1953 Sunbeam Alpine Roadster) owned my Michael Eaves whose parents were wealthy farmers who had seen the writing on the wall in South Africia (think the Mau Mau and Zulu uprisings) and emigrated to Australia. 

 

With our "Joe Larkin" longboards strapped to the roof rack we were seeking the perfect waves pictured in a OZ surfing mag of Nat Young arching on the nose at Crescent like Mickey Dora (my idol) at Malibu. I actually drove that car at 90 MPG on winding mountain road! 

 

 

 

 

We had slept in the car at the campground by the creekmouth in the bay and instead of walking all the way around the point to get out  we began the mile or so paddle out to the line up. 

 

 

After dispatching a few of the smaller set waves two of us tookoff  (both goofy) on a giant overhead peak ... hard off the bottom ... crouching through the bowl in front of the rocks then out onto the long glass wall ... we were climbing and dropping but as the wave boomeranged into the bay into what the locals now call “The Racetrack”  it got faster and faster ... I was inside and low my mate was up high in front and the wake from his board made the wave start to peel over my head  ... I crouched  down and grabbed a rail ... I could see light in the tunnel for a couple of seconds but then I was in the washing machine and making the long swim to the creek mouth. ... he rode it all the way!

 

Would love to go back in time to those waves today ... either lip smacking, tail sliding on my 7’ 2” MR design Twin Fin “SuperFish” or  screaming down the line on my super light, super fast, flat bottom ,down railed  9’ 2” x 23” x 3” x 19” x 14” x 5” 2 +1 (3.25” sidebites + 7” center fin) hybrid ... single stringer, modern high performance John-Luc Robert’s Longboard.

 

The “Joe Larkin” I was riding was typical of that time ... a three stringer 9’8” x 21.5” x 3.5” x 17” x 14” x 6” that weighed a ton ... had a soft rolled bottom and egg rails ... very little rocker and a  9” single fin.  Absolute JUNK ... do not understand people who go out today and order “retro” boards complete with a Hula Girl or some such on the bottom ... we had to suffer through them and to pay over a $1,000 US for a piece of junk that only Joel Tudor or Mickey Dora could ever ride just so they can look “cool”  is beyond me?

Sunbeam Alpine Roadster:

 

 

For those who've never seen the film, I should explain that the vehicle in question is not the Sunbeam Alpine familiar to many people – the car which eventually became the Sunbeam Tiger, powered by a Ford V-8. The Alpine in "To Catch a Thief" is from an earlier era. More a Grand Tourer than a sports car, it is far prettier than the later Alpine.

The Alpine that made its debut in 1953 was a derivative of the Sunbeam-Talbot 90 sedan and drophead (convertible coupe), which featured a 2267cc 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed transmission with optional overdrive. This car had a remarkably successful rally career, including a 1953 overall victory in the famed Monte Carlo Rally.
