Fun waves this afternoon…

My friend Jeremy and I ran down the trail this afternoon and scored some clean little peaks with only a few other guys out.  Here are a few pictures I took along the way…

Nate Yeomans getting shacked on his 6`2 AVISO

How sick are these shots of Nate on his 6`2 Rusty AVISO! The 6`2 is a great all around board that handles well in small punchy beach breaks as well as firing point breaks. Get your hands on one now!

Dropping in with …Lost Surfboards

There were some little waves to be had around town but nothing too special. I had to stop by Lost this afternoon to drop some boards with Steve and Gyr for Biolos.  Turns out I was lucky enough to run into the man himself. Here are some shots of Mayhem checking out his new AVISO Slipper, a beautiful addition to his already extensive quiver!

Monday morning…

Well the waves are pretty hurting this morning in and around SC.  If the high tide bogging it out was not enough to demotivate you then this north wind that just picked up should do the trick.  Could be fun later if the winds change but I would not hold my breath…

Here is a sick band that I have been listening to lately.  There name is epic and they sound different than a lot of the crap out there right now.  Check it out, and let us know what you have been rockin` in the ipod lately…

A couple of pics from the last few days…

Here are a few shots that I snapped over the last couple of days.  Friday was insane, we surfed lowers with like seven guys out and then scored some little shacks down at the beach breaks in town before dark. This morning we hit the beach breaks again and got some sick waves before the tide dropped out too much. We have had a nice little run with hopefully more to come. Get on it tomorrow after the tide drops a little if you have the time…

CWach off to OZ with his 10`0 and his 5`0 AVISO!

Here are a few shots that I snapped off last night when I was hanging out over at Christian Wach`s house. The kid leaves today for a month and a half over in Australia to film and defend his title in the Nose Riding event at the Noosa Festival over on the Sunshine Coast from March 15-22.  Christian was the first person on the invitation for this years event and is amped to try to match his 17.5 seconds of tip time from last year. Anyway check out these shots of him going to town on his 10`0, and check back soon for a video of the whole process…
