Small Wave SUPing – Pismo Beach, CA

Bought a new waterproof camcorder and went out at the Addie Street wall a few days ago.  The waves were unremarkable, but the camera worked fabulously.  Below is a link to a short video of my morning session.  Enjoy.

Surfmobile – 1953 Studebaker


I am now the proud owner of a real nice 1953 Studebaker Champion.  The car is in great shape and runs like a top.  Threw in a Ron Jon’s beach towel to help with the surfing theme.

Six cylinder, 3-speed on the tree.  My plan is to get some retro surf racks for it and use it to run my boards back and forth to the beach.

There is a link to great Studebaker song below (can you believe it?)  Enjoy it.

Surf & Stay – Cocoa Beach, FL – November 2011

As part of our last trip to Florida to visit family for Thanksgiving, we had the opportunity to stay a few nights at the 4 Points by Sheraton Hotel that is part of the Cocoa Beach Surf Company’s surf shop complex.  Cocoa Beach Surf Company is billed as the world’s largest surf shop complex and is directly across from Ron Jon’s.  We had a nice suite that actually overlooked the interior of the multi story surf shop (I was in heaven).

I was a bit strange not having a window directly looking outside, but it was fascinating to see the activity in the surf shop and the Shark Pit bistro.  The room was very comfortable and accented in surf related lamps, pictures, etc.

It was very quite and just a block off the beach.  We would recommend at stay at this unique hotel.
