Went wakeboarding a couple weekends ago with my buddy Greg. Took some videos of him being radical.

The other video is from iceland late last year in December at Thorli.

Last week I took a sailing course at pacific sail in Santa Cruz, Had such an awesome time! The instructors we had Capt. Max and Todd were super cool dudes. There wasn't much wind the last day of the class but the ocean and clouds were really pretty. Yesterday I went to see my family and stopped by my brothers work at Sonoma Raceway and lightly helped tear down an evo motor. Then last week before starting the sailing classes I finished doing a tune up on my motorbike, timing belts, fuel filter, air filters, coolant flush, oil filter, new rear tire, and some old gaskets that had gotten crispy. Just some usual maintenance that needed to be done. Kind of a goofy picture of me on the bike after its all been fixed up.

Robin and I had a slow weekend, didn't do a whole lot. Shes been working really hard on some new animations. But I'm back in the water surfing, there were some little shoulder high waves at poplar saturday mid afternoon.

On Saturday night I was having a hard time falling asleep and keep thinking how cool it be to make some 2d effects. I finally fell asleep and woke up energized to make some 2d stuff. Its still a work in progress.

Some old photos from a trip I took to Japan back in 2009. Had a good time at a punk show at the wire. This was a short trip, quick visits to Osaka and Kyoto and back to Tokyo.

The day after getting back to California I had a bad fall skateboarding... For all the stupid shit I've done, the injury was 20 feet from my house doing nothing crazy! And the week before was 4,000 miles away running around on frozen ponds and icy mountain sides in the middle of the night. I landed on the tip of my right shoulder pushed my collarbone up causing the ligiments to hyper extend and rip resulting in an acromioclavicular separation, grade 3.

Well its be over a year since I've posted anything. Got back from Iceland last month. What an awesome place! Robin and I both fell in love with the people, landscapes, culture, and food. Robin worked a 6 month stint at Lazy Town and I came to visit the last month while she wrapped up there. We did a little traveling around the island to Vik, Hofn, Gullfoss, and randomly came across some surfers at Thorli while out taking some photo of the coast. These guys were super cool, offer an extra wetsuit and surfboard but we were short a set of fins.

OpenFace WART! - Here it is, my WART has been born :D Took this piece of foam out yesterday and worked like a charm! Made some nice turns and punchy drops, hung in there through some sections. 6' ~ 18 3/4 ~ 2 3/8 The WARTs bending with some medium amount of rocker with a nice kick out the tail, deep single concave nose to tail, semi full rails. Feeling pretty good about this board. The carbon tissue was much easier to glass this time around. Took Robin's advice on adding some color to the OpenFace design, I'm enjoying the color look more and more. Well its raining cats and dogs for next few days, guess its onto the next stick.

Robin's Midnight Moaner! - Its been a little time since I post here. Finally finished Robins surfboard :P Few months back I started something for her and put it on hold cause I felt unhappy with the original design. So with a little reworking I came up with this shortboard for her thats 5'4 ~ 19 1/4 ~ 2 3/8. With a pretty wide nose at about 15" similar to a fish I like to ride when the surf is small, the tail runs the same size. The board artwork was brainstormed awhile back by Robin and she did a great job executing it.

New Open Face Board "Crap Face" - This turned out more of an experiment, originally had a wider nose. Took the templete from my OF sleaze to narrow up the front of the board. 5'11" ~ 18 7/8 ~ 2 3/8. Feels pretty good! holds tight, turns solid.
