Labor Day Chill Out
September 8, 2009

Today Amanda, Jenny, Kelly, Kris, Matt, Mitch, Stevo, Zack, and I went to Trestles for a relaxed Labor Day surf. The waves were really small and the onshore wind just killed it BUT we still had a brilliant time. Sure there were a few stubbed toes, broken noses and scraped fins but we had fun and that’s what it’s all about.

I cut my 5 year old Oneill Psycho I in half. Added a swallow tail for some flair. Taken By Mitch.

I didn’t wake up when Mitch called me at 5am yesterday but we managed to go today to Trestles. I actually finished making the board on the parking lot. I wasn’t happy the leash plug hole so I redrilled a hole, got it filled with resin, let it cure on the ride down and drilled the final leash hole on the lot. Since I have short arms, carrying the 23 inch wide board to Trestles was a mission. The thing catches waves so easily and it just glides. So stoked. David took all these pictures. What a legend.

I know my board isn’t a legit hull but I can’t wait to surf it.
