Like riding a bike? Not so much. Maybe. A little.
Now, for some height.
Here’s some footage of the all-time “Doomsday Swell” in Jerz from a guy named Tony. Tony Hawk. I don’t think it’s that Tony Hawk, but maybe. Anyway, it’s shot in Bay Head an’ it gets real interestin’ right up aroun’ 2:40…
It just happens to be part of this excellent, 10-minute (ish) webisode that he and Matt Meola put out with Rockstar. Definitely worth a looksy…
And simply for argument’s sake, here’s Julian Wilson’s 540 ‘Oop attempt from way back in mid-2011:
He’s surely landed one by now, no?
Birthday video. In honor of the fact that Water, water is 1/13th my age this week. And happy birthday to Nick, Joel, Brendon, Grant, Scott, Dane, Ryan, Ges, Matt, Coby, and all of my other surfing friends born on this most excellent week in the fine month of November.
P.S. After fully checking myself out in front of the full-length mirror on the way out of the bathroom last night, I turned around and realized I’d been caught by none other than Parko–which afforded me the chance to say a startled and slightly embarrassed “hello.” Birthday magic.

A scheduling mix-up at work has given me the morning off. At first, I was annoyed that I woke up at 6 a.m. and rode my bike down there in the wind, only to ride it back 30 minutes later. But then I surfed for two hours and I wasn’t annoyed anymore. Funny how that happens. PLUS, tomorrow’s my birthday! For no reason, other than the fact that I’m now in a good mood and I feel like posting something, here’s my current favorite Aussie commercial:
Who’s got a good birthday surf vid I can use for tomorrow?! Send it ova!
