YO spongebob et al
i am not saying "take down the cast" and have been a longtime supporter of LN, on the old board and this one (and longtime member of both boards under a different name). my point, if you actually read my post is that there is a lot of requests for models when people go on vacation...what do you do when you get to a place and have no clue as to what is going on and LN is nowhere to be found? In addition, LN has other priorities in life besides creating and then running models for everybody every time they go on vacation.
and not to downgrade what LN does, b/c it is amazing, but i know plenty of people on this board who can read swell models and forecast with as much accuracy or more. If you depend on LN you will miss good surfable days or expect surf when the forecast has actually changed overnight.

time to start forecasting for yourselves. i really don't mean to pick on mario and i would bet most of us do our own forecasting and just like confirmation from the guru. i totally do that for here. but imo the best thing LN ever did for any of us was stop doing his cast when the controversy started on newyorksurf. it was like having the bottle pulled out with a bitch slap to boot.   must    learn   to    read    swell   models   . now one of my favorite parts of traveling is looking at swell models starting months beforehand, figuring out swell patterns and dominant wind patterns (goddamn onshores on the west coast of NZ!!!). there are dozens of sites to check out, PR's got a nearshore model on surfline so it couldn't be easier. the coolest thing in my book is when i've established a forecast for the week and voila! nature obliges. and when she doesn't, its fascinating to figure out why. that recent thread between LN and surfdawg was barely comprehensible for an average human, but enlightening nonetheless as to why we can watch systems blow up and never hit our shores. or why when they technically shouldn't get to us we get some nice wavos anyway.

you can do it!

my back is FUCKED from crackie and my escapade with an inflatable rowboat over the weekend. i am spending the day lying on heating pad and taking advil.
okay, except for the hour and a half i surfed. luckily my first wave was perfect. then after fighting the drift forever and taking off on 2 waves that closed out i hobbled home and returned to my bed.
OW my back is fucked.

Hi all. As some of you already know, I have a number of photos featured in the July issue of Transworld Surf Magazine, which, despite its date, actually hits the newstands this month, possibly this week. I just got my advance copies and the photos look amazing. They accompany an article about Rockaway written by Stefan Marti. He captures Rockaway in its depth and complexity with eloquence. I realize we all have very mixed feelings about the publicizing of an already crowded break that many of us call home and I take responsibility for particpating in this. However, I hope everyone understands that people in California, Australia, and Florida, will read about our scene with the same intense interest that we have when reading about Trestles, Bells, or South Beach (on the rare day that it goes off). In his editor's note, Joel Patterson, gives serious props to the east coast surfers who brave a blizzard just to get their stoke on and I am thrilled that in addition to the article, Joel takes a moment to recognize dedication and real Aloha.

Thanks to everyone who has patiently allowed me to make their picture, particularly to Rockbum, Dylan, Little Nasty, Guppy, Blueberry, Gotham Surfer, and a few nameless faces (and feet) who make appearances in this issue. I would also like to thank Psycho for organizing the Rockumentary, which makes a cameo on the jump page. My quick shot does not compare to SportPixel's, since mine was off the cuff, but it does show the Family in its entirety. Most surf breaks don't have such a thing and we are truly lucky.

I will bring a copy to the Offshore/On Board opening and leave it at the show for the duration.
