Large and In Charge

Posted: 07/11/2011 by goodie in HQ

This weekend brought great weather and powerful, demanding surf. We had a large swell in the water that was working best in the mornings and evenings. Chi and I drove some surfer up to Hoag, the guy had sliced the top of his foot open, to the bone, from his scag.  We also had a random group of ducks come hang with us and we made some great beer can chicken. All in all…..I think summer is in full swing.

Beach duck anyone?

it's not beach duck, it's beer can chicken......mmmmmmm

The fourth of July celebration went off without many issues and I think a lot of fun was had by all. We even had our own custom built pool, 20 by 30 and 3 feet deep.

I’m looking for my black Oakley sunglasses as well as my brown Rainbow Sandals (someone switched with me, I have yours)

Here is the fun

Lets make this happen

Chi and Jed paddle out on their neon boards late after the sun went down. At least they should be able to see their boards in the dim light.

Looks like the swell is a building….should be good this weekend.

Welcome Summer

Posted: 06/21/2011 by goodie in HQ

Happy first day of Summer to all of you. Yesterday was the longest day of the year…..they just get shorter from here. On a positive note, the first Pacific Ocean hurricane of the season is spinning on up from Mexico…..I’m ready for some good shaped southerly swell.

My post from earlier today was a subtle joke on the current theft going on in Newport.

The theft hit home tonight. I got home and the neighbor told me his truck had been stolen……..from right out front. Scary……..lock your stuff up.

There goes the tower……

Posted: 06/17/2011 by goodie in HQ

Gosh…..notices have been posted all over town reminding people to lock there homes and vehicles. I know there has been an increased level of thefts in Newport over the last few months and police have been on the lookout. However, when I peered out my window yesterday morning around five AM I was shocked. I saw someone trying to steal the life guard tower……tractor and all.  Now who the hell would want that? Man things are getting out of hand.

You have been warned!

Stealing the tower!

Surf Contest at 54th street

Posted: 06/03/2011 by goodie in HQ

The Oakley Pro Junior is in town again this year. For a long time they held this event just north of the 56st jetty but the last few years they have set up down at 54th. Still means the lineup is gonna be crowded this weekend. Here is a picture from the contest a few years ago featuring Mike Estrada with dolphins.
