Soldier Surfer

I've used surfing in my life to heal and I've seen it work magic for others as well. This new film project by up and coming surf filmmaker Doug Walker explores the role surfing has on healing our warriors as they come home from battle.

Support Local Musicians!

I'm always blown away by the talent of others. My friend John Terbeville is one that inspires me. He lived down the street from me for years and was known to myself and my neighbors as our local shaper. We would order all our boards from him and I still ride one of his magic boards to this day. After shaping for so many years he has now turned his attention to music and has been playing his heart out to anyone that will listen.  I love it. Go after your passion John!

If you want to check out John's skills in person he and his friends are playing over the next few days. Go check him out and support your local musicians!

Lighting Bolt by Rory Russell for Sale

From the Lost and Found Collection

"Rory Russell is a legendary surfer from the 1970's who grew up on the North Shore. As a kid growing up all I saw was boards with large lightning bolts on them on these amazing waves and thats when I knew I wanted to surf. Today Rory lives in Kona and has a surfing school and has started shaping these classic boards again. I spoke with him today to let him know I was coming out to show the film and he said he has 2 boards he is shaping that are not glassed yet and that the buyers will have an opportunity to choose there own colors.

If interested give Rory a call. He's a great guy and you will not regret purchasing an amazing piece of art.808.333.2210"

Manufacturing Stoke World Wide (Web/Phone/TV) Debut on The Surf Network! Now you can watch it from your computer, iphone, ipad, ipod, android, roku player, playstation 3, sony TV, microwave oven and now your espresso machine! It's amazing. 

I have seen this movie no less then 12 times with all the touring we did with it and it never gets old. In fact I love it more every time. It is that good. If you haven't seen it I urge you to watch the movie THE BIG COMPANIES DO NOT WANT YOU TO SEE. Watch this film and you wont think the same way about what you ride, what you wear and what you BUY.  Join the revaluation to take back our surf industry.

I'm proud of you Pierce and Petra. You guys did it right and did it from your heart. Here is to you my friends.

Help Kick Start The Encyclopedia of Surfing Online

 Want the history of surfing to be free and online for ever and ever? Want your name to be associated with that? Help make it happen by going to the page for the Encyclopedia of Surfing. You can donate as little as a dollar but $10 to $1000 get you some pretty cool stuff. 

I think it is great what Matt Warshaw, former editor of SURFER Magazine is doing. His books include the Encyclopedia of Surfing, the History of Surfing, and Maverick's: the Story of Big-Wave Surfing. He has an idea and is going for it. I wish Matt and the crew a heap of luck in this endeavor.

For Auction Today

What: *enjoy Handplane for silent auction.
When: 11:30am to 2:20 TODAY Sunday Nov 6th.
Where: Bali Hai Restaurant
Why: To rase money for a scholarship in the name of Skip and Donna Frye that goes to help good kids that ended up in continuation high school go to college.
Who: The Jonathan Tarr Foundation + Skip and Donna Frye

The Jonathan Tarr Foundation is an amazing organization. It is based in Encinitas and every year helps about 30 kids that want to go to collage with small starter scholarships to get their foot in the door. The kids that get these scholarships all went to continuation high school and all where recommended by their counselors to get the awards. These are bright kids that make a wrong turn at some point.

This organization recognizes that although you may make some bad choices along the way, you are not bad at heart and deserve to be given a second chance. Many of these kids start off to go to a JC and end up at 4 year prestigious colleges, graduating and going on to have very successful lives.

If it wasn't for the JTF no one would have helped them.

Todays auction is in conjunction with a humanitarian award being given to Skip and Donna Frye. Tickets for lunch and the ceremony are $55. All the proceeds go to the scholarships. If you want to attend. Call Sherry Yardley at 760-818-0462
