I'm not believing it but it's really gonna happen.  The world will end in 2012... right after the World Tour stops in NY in 2011.  "No Way" you say.  This was just released today...

HUNTINGTON BEACH, California/USA (Wednesday, January 26, 2011) –Quiksilver and the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) today announced the Quiksilver Pro New York, set to take place on Long Island’s Long Beach from September 4-15. The Quiksilver Pro New York will be the 6th stop on the 2011 ASP World Tour and the first-ever ASP World Tour stop on the East Coast of the United States. The event will offer a $1 million dollar prize purse to competitors, an amount unprecedented in professional surfing.

Today Volcom Pipe Pro

 I'm pulling for Alex Grey reppin' the good ole' South Bay!  He was in great form pig doggin' back side on pipe.  I can't find a video of it yet but I'll get one up here soon!  Click here and check out the live feed.

Volcom Pipe Pro 2011


Looks like today was a lay day and  with a rising swell the boys aren't going unless it's classic Monster Pipe.  Thanks guys after seeing the "Dream Tour" event last month I was left wanting more.  Like alot more size!  I'm thinking the guys at Volcom are gonna make sure it's Proving Grounds Pipe before they run it. Click Volcom to watch!

New pics

Rails and outline. Plus I go my fred tool built.

Still hackin' away

Got a little work done on this guy today. Maked out my fins. 11.5 up from tail for the sides and 3.5 up for center. I finished my rails today but ended up dinging one when I put the board up for the day. If anyone has a way to fix it let me know. I'm thinking elmers glue with some extra fill in foam then sand. Let me know what you think.

Foiled and rockered

I can't believe it its starting to look like a surfboard! I got me some rocker 4.25 nose and 2 1/8 tail. Rock-on!

New tool

To work on the rocker and foil I needed to make a caliper. A little cardboard, some tape, and a little blue tape should do it!

Update on the build

Today I work on the Rocker and foil. Wish me luck.

Working on my fred tool

Just putting together a fred tool. My neighbor Pete cut the 30° angle and cut it to length. Maybe I should call it the Pete tool. Anyway, thanks Pete!

Update on build

Check this out I got started on the foam munching! Roughed out the board. Got the tail and nose templates cut. This thing should be about 5'9 x 18 1/4 x 2 1/8 rounded pin tail. Fo sheezy!

My first surfboard build!

Getting her started

You should totally use a work bench, I had to have a massage after.

Bench is almost done.  Just using old junk I had laying around.
Awh yeah!  Done-zo!

Now I'm ready to get this board shaped!  I hope this board at least floats.   Wish me luck.

New board porn! So hot!

Just so stoked about my new board! Thought i'd put more pics up! Merry Christmas to me! SD2 5'9 x 18.25 x 2 1/8 thanks Mayhem!

My new ride!

Just wanted to send a big thanks to Surf City, WB and the guys at ...Lost for getting this new SD2 to me in only 7weeks! It looks totally sick!

news feed about Stephanie Gilmore

Stephanie Gilmore attacked!

Surfing life reported recently:

Last night Stephanie Gilmore was attacked outside her home in Tweed Heads. A man on a bike rode up and hit her twice with a metal pole.

The four times world champ released this statement. “There was an incident in which I was attacked at my property,” Gilmore said. “It was a completely random act in which I was a victim in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is now a matter for the court. I have sought medical attention and am on my road to recovery in high spirits. I look forward to getting back in the water in six weeks. In the mean time, I’m staying mentally and physically fit every way I can. I have fantastic support from my family and friends and look forward to resting up for a fresh start in the New Year.”

Her alleged attacker is in custody.

Here's a link to her blog so you can wish her speedy recovery.
