  • Reminiscing of the roping muffly warped gargle of the tube in which i was gliding thru clinging to the wall for deeper cover.... over and over!  Avery takes off behind the peak on a set wave, and finds his first interior view of the curl as well.  Such a proud daddy!   Such a stoked Daddy! Words cant describe the gratitude I have for my life these days.  But I am grateful to everyone I've ever encountered in any way and to those that paved the way to allow for this lifetime...  Tough days for the earth but god i'm proud.  Shared a moment of silence with Avery in the surf today as well, remembering the lost lives of this day in 1941.  In addition to the thousands of Navy Personnel lost, firefighters responding to the aid of the ships were lost as well.  6 of which were the only non military personnel to ever recieve the purple heart!  Indebted

  • Great few sessions lately indeed!  Very grateful.   And can't forget the civilians  of Nagasaki and Hiroshima either.

  • After posting this, I got a call for an EMS response on a guy that was in the water at the coast guard dock.  Grabbed my wet wetsuit and was first on scene for what would become the saving of a life of a man in my industry who's boat had overturned in the chaos of wind against tide conditions.  The patient arrived on a coast guard boat and we medevaced him to a trauma center where his core temp had been brought back to 89 degreeson arrival and climbing.  Last report... 98.5 degrees and recouperating!  We saved a life tonight!
