Went with Alex and Rossco to Porthtowan yesterday. It was pretty sweet. I had another go on the hull except this time the waves were much cleaner and longer.

Doodle Battle
October 3, 2009

When I was in London, Mike, one of the kings of FBBB invited me to this doodle event. They’re called Secret Wars. Two teams battle each other by doodling on giant blank boards.

If you’re ever bored in London, go to South Bank. Great Graffiti, great skating, great biking, and if you get super hungry, great food super close by.

Irish Surf
September 2, 2009

My friend Ross who I interned for at the end of last school year went on a trip to Ireland and Wales to score some waves. It’s weird since people that live in California or Hawaii never really think about how surfing exists pretty much everywhere that land meets water. Here are some shots taken by Ross from Easkey, Ireland.

easkeyleftNot bad for a place outside of Cali eh?
