Perfect waves at some far away destination or epic conditions at your local beach? With friends or alone? Big waves or small? Hollow death-barrels or Brazilian launch pads? The elements that make up a dream session depend on the surfer. What makes you excited is certainly not what gets Twiggy Baker’s blood going, unless you’re stoked to paddle into 30 ft. Mavericks bombs. And all your dream may consist of is a head dip and butt wiggle. But it’s your dream session and there’s no rules.
The movie on big-wave hellman, Jay Moriarity is coming out this fall. It's even got Gerard Butler in a lead role!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, we've had waves for weeks, which is unheard of in and of itself in our parts. But I'm over everyone talking about how 'epic', 'perrrrrfect' and 'unreal' it's been. It hasn't. In fact, outside of the occasional decent size, it's been a lesson in just how much our coastline can close-out. And apparently that's A LOT!

Good reminder pulled from Irish big wave surfer, Al Mennie's, blog post about the ocean knowledge good surfers hold and the help that can offer to those not so adept in the big blue.
Such a fun, surprising little session last night with my step-son. As the sun went down and the sky lit up, the ocean got silky smooth and a perfect little A-frame formed just off our local beach. While it wasn't big, it was sweet with an easy roll-in and a gaping barrel on the inside. Plus, our hearts got an extra beat when a gang of stingrays flew in to feed on the crabs in the shallows. It was...uh...interesting, because they weren't small. And you know what follows stingrays, right?
