Cold Water Classic '06

Thanks Cooper, Bee, and Miz B for your supportive words and luv :) Things are better today, and I am feeling optimistic again. I had a good surf session last night and found another cutie to talk to ;)

Here some photos my housemate, Journi, took from last Monday at the Cold Water Classic. The first is of Steamer Lane, the second is the massive structure they built along my bike path to house the judges and other peoples, the third is of myself and some of my crew (I'm 2nd from the left, in case you didn't know) :

A Bit of a Mess

Yeah Yeah Yeah... I know, I've been gone for awhile, but a LOT has happened. I wish I had better news to update, but the cutie ran back to her ex, my car broke down, I got sick, and I was told by a friend of Hannah's that she doesn't want to talk to me. So, with that, I am actually relieved to be at work right now.

Through all this, I have been surfing quite a bit and it's been good. The day my car broke down, my housemate and I drove over to the Lane to catch The Cold Water Classic. Super awesome surfing going on....world class. I met Erica Hosseini and Karina Petroni, Vans Team riders and models and just all around cute chicks. They were going to go surfing at Ano Nuevo. I saw Peter Mel talking some guy and a handful of other famous surfers.

My housemate took a few pics that I need to download and post. Anyway... I am going to get through the day and hope to find something in it to make it good.

The Crew Unleashed!

What a great weekend! God, it's been a long time since I have had one of the like. It all started Friday. Yes, the much talked about Luna Run. It started off cloudy and as the twilight crept in, the moon peaked out. The surf was very small, but the water was clear and glassy and I had Jen, Mary, Meg and Juan out with me. Later on, we all went to Meg's for some drinks, food, and good company.

The next morning, Todd, Jen, and I, headed to the eastside to catch some more waves. We paddled out to 2nd peak, but there was a chilly breeze coming through there. I was getting very cold sitting there (I had to put on a wet wetsuit, so I started off cold) so I decided to paddle over to 38th, leaving Todd and Jen to 2nd Peak. There was no wind there, as the cliff seemed to block the breeze. I had a fun time on the small scale waves. The people who were there were mostly beginners, so my wave count was high. After the session we went to Beckman's for breakfast. Our friend, and newest crew member, Mary, works there and it was her 21st birthday. We made a card for her and brought it over and she sat with us and had some coffee. Later on that night Jen and I went to her party and had a blast. My best friend Ami came into town and joined us. It was great seeing Mary with her family and friends, and was wonderful to be a part of that.

On Sunday, around 6pm, we all got in the water again. Jen, Mary, and I went without leashes, since it was so small. What a liberating feeling, not being attached to the board! Although, you have remember that, be extra carefully not to loose your stick and kill someone. It took a while, but the crowd dwindled and it was just several people and "The Crew" - Meg, Rick, Todd, Drew, Juan, Jen, Mary, and myself, left in the evening water. It's been months since we've all sat in a line up together. We just had a blast goofing off and being silly. Classic night. We all paddled in after dark, making plans to do all again later this evening.

That's what it's all about. Weekends like that make life so sweet.
