ICONS OF SURF INSTALLATION ALL DONE


s
***The Icons of Surf store in San Clemente is a great store for the beach lover in all of us. Great clothes, shades, shoes, movies, fins, and one of the finest selection of quality surfboards on the coast. Lucky for me they also sell a heap of Bing's and were kind enough to let me come in and throw down some creative freedom on an all new Bing Hall. Adam Cap and I played Tooltime and cut it up, here's the final product, stop by if you have a chance.

DISPLACEMENT THE MOVIE



***Alex Kopps is one of the best humans I know. Ultra talented, light hearted, funny, shreds and is one hell of an artist. He's also making a rad film many people are patiently waiting for, entitled Displacement, which dives into the history of the Displacement Hull and the creatures that ride the, I've been fortunate enough to ride a plethora of hulls for the movie, travel and haul ass through some wicked bottom turn/highline combos. o fun. Hears a few photos from recent sessions.

SAI BABA

At the age of 14, Sathya Sai Baba declared to his parents that he had come to this world with a mission to re-establish the principle of Righteousness, to motivate love for God and service to fellow man. Since then, he has consistently called on all mankind to Love All, Serve All and has repeatedly asserted that the essence of all scriptures is Help Ever, Hurt Never! He has followers in over a 100 countries that are represented in world-wide conferences. His followers are estimated to be around 10 million. The once rural hamlet of Puttaparthi has been transformed into a thriving international city where thousands flock to see the Guru.

ONE MANS TRASH......



****Early walk with Spark the other day, ended with a great conversation with a sweet old lady. She was so nice to Spark and intrigued by his blindness, as we walked together, she spotted a surf board on a alley way dumpster, I said good bye and went to inspect the craft. It was neglected, dirty and unloved. I knew I we could once again ride freely in the sea and I snatched under my excited arm. As I did so a man yelled, hey hey, totally thought I was busted, but the man wanted to tell me his roomate in 73's father shaped the board for him to learn to surf but for the last 25 years its been a table in his back yard. I ran home, grabbed my suit and hit Swami's soon there after. The black mold vanished, the board came to life and I felt blessed by my morning gifts. All the best, 111

A MANS BEST FRIEND



****He's there through thick and thin, licking, scratching, jumping, playing. Always looking for love. Always by my side. So lucky to have a companion that cares, when the night sky seems often lonely and bare. We walk, we talk, he bumps and jumps, adventures we take across coastal humps. I learn daily to live in the moment, use my senses to follow the heart or leave the room if he farts. His eyes might not see, but his spirit does sore, I love this little creature deep down the core.

ALASKAN GLACIER

***Simply beautiful. The most amazing blues imaginable.

I LIKE

****These two are inspiring, I'm lucky to have such good and inspirational friends...RK, Manny and 111.

WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK

***Work mode, in the old house, taken by someone very dear to my heart.

MY BABY"S ALL GROWNS UP
