End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones (2004)

End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones. A good documentary. Worth the watch at 2+ hours. Now beat up the brat with a baseball bat.

Griffin and Sabine Trilogy

Since today is February 14th, indulge yourself in this creative, imaginative "non-fictional" tale, Griffin & Sabine: An Extraordinary Correspondence. If you're artsy fartsy and enjoy a good dose of literary romance, give this bit of illustrated reading a chance. This most unusual book captures postcard writings between two artists separated by the Earth's hemisphere. Griffin is an UK-based artist who is intrigued and enamoured with lavishly illustrated and authored postcards he receives from Sabine, a mysterious exotic woman living on a remote South Pacific island. The dialogue that follows is the essence of the book; it is an "extraordinary correspondence."

It's actually a trilogy, but the first installment is the winner.

Tradeswell remnants were favorable for some nice conditions for logging. Light trades were blowing, and we could smell the meat from several BBQs on the beach.

Bonzer bottom with an almost standard tri-fin set-up

Contrary to popular belief, the bonzer platform does have variations. See, for example, this 7'2 conventional tri-fin glass set-up with the bonzer bottom. Bonzer channels are still present.

So is this a thruster??????

More Hulls

Fresh from a trip to Putnam's garage this past week, I was highly motivated to study up even harder on hull design, especially as applied to the South Shore style of waves. Seeing the history of an almost proprietary style of surfing that the Liddle clan defined- on display in a North LA County 2-car garage really got me thinking about how I could push the hull design here in Hawaii. Ventura Point, Pitas, and Rincon offer hull friendly point break kindness. But what about the Ala Moana reefs? We'll have to see.

6'10 and 6'0 Andersons.

KP's Anderson Pescado got put to use at 4-5' Ventura Point, and it really shined off the bottom. Nice straight butter knife cutties into the whitewater, too.

Thruster on a hull? Yup.

Underground Headquarters

"And then there was the Liddle League probably the most noticeable of the lot in the crowded lineup. Collectively, the group worked at Greg Liddle's factory and shop in the Valley, and they surfed together daily, making the run over the hill to test the latest ideas that often sported drying hot coats, or still powdery sand jobs Surfing daily from Santa Monica to the Ranch, the boys were super smooth surf freaks in a straight-line, pivotal surf world. They knew it and they let it out. Their casual styling fit perfectly into the Malibu lines and were a direct Neolithic throwback to the Kivlin, Dora, Edwards years when smooth was cool and emulated. These guys were the real "Roots of Cool." They came as a group of round board rebels, and enjoyed the waves and the camaraderie, sliding down surfings timeline and being just as smooth as those that showed them the prophetic way. But now they were going at flank speed!"
-Ken McKnight, from Six Feet to Fit on Allaboutsurf.com

Being able to meet up and chat with the multi-talented Esteban Bojorquez and the "Idea Man," Kirk Putnam has been the highlight of the California trip thus far.

California Trip- Great news!

The California Trip is coming to an end, and we were put in quite a good mood from the good news that came out of Laker-Land.
