I've got a handful of boards that all need a little TLC - nothing major, but figured I'd just remind myself of the basics. Stumbled across this site that seems to cover it pretty well and has some tips that may seem obvious to most of us, but are really good lessons for those newer to the sport

Curious that the site doesn't recommend using duck tape as a stop gap, not because it doesn't work, but because it makes it harder for the ding repair person to clean the site and prep it for repair - I've always done it and never had a problem. Eh, I guess there's something to it, but I never really found it a problem.

Much more fun this afternoon than I expected - a little too windy, a little too closey, but pretty consistent chest high and all sorts of fun if you grabbed the right one. Got a handful on what might be my new favorite board...






Welcome to summer 2019 - nice way to kick it off - hope y'all have a great one.


 ;D ;D

First - my apologies to all users for the recent spate of spam posts a that have occurred in recent weeks, and the terrible spate of them we suffered about 2 weeks ago now. I especially want to apologize to our followers on Twitter and Facebook who periodically have had to deal with literally dozens of spam posts from here showing up on their facebook and twitter feeds. I truly apologize.


So - I have taken several steps to keep spammers and spam bots from registering on here and successfully posting. I will not mention specifics, as I don't want to provide a roadmap for getting around the firewalls, so to speak - but I will ask a favor of all of you:


If someone or some bot DOES successfully break through and post a spam post, please please PLEASE send me a quick email at [email protected] or, if you have my cell, shoot me a quick text? I will address it as quickly as I humanly can and I will look at it to find out where the hole in defense is, and close it up.


Thanks for your understanding and assistance, and again my apologies!

Nice little run of surf so far in June - nothing epic of course, but considering June is historically our worst month, I'll take it!


Hope you're all finding some waves, too.

Holiday weeks are always good for catching up on things, and this one gave me the chance to catch the latest episode of Swell Season Radio, featuring our very own @Seppo1 and his co-host, Ben Pomeroy. With no official guest for the week, Tyler "interviewed" Ben, but in reality, it kind of felt like I was sitting in on a couple of friends simply talking surf and life and stuff and just having a good conversation - it was a very enjoyable listen. At multiple points I felt myself wishing I was in the studio live with them so I could join in the conversation!

They guys are off for the holidays and will back on 2019 with all new weekly episodes that air on Tuesdays from 8-9PM live from Wax studios in Greenpoint, Brooklyn - you can catch the live broadcast on their website: swellseasonradio.com ....or.....

You can do what I do and catch up with them on Spotify - simply search Swell Season Radio -

You can also catch them on multiple other media outlets, including SoundCloud, iTunes, Stitcher and YouTube, if that's what you prefer.

Give the guys a listen - you'll thank me for it!

Looks like it's headed for our swell window...finger's crossed!

I've barely surfed the entire month, and there doesn't seem to be any relief in sight. Ugh. Hope September is better...


Here's the latest Tropical Update:

From our great friend Eric Beyer at the The Beach House Classic Board Shop in Bay Head:


The dateís been set for one on my favorite days of the year... our Annual Fall Boardswap! Itís Sunday October 7th, 2018. Dust them off and clean em up! See you there![/size]There is nothing better than Surfboards and a good time with great people! This tradition draws more and more people each year...we'll get surfers from 11 states showing up. Well over 150 boards out in front, around the side and in back of the shop. ...it's a really cool event that I look forward to every Spring and Fall.The focus is on "Vintage" riders from the 60s, 70s and 80s...we've also extended things to include modern day longboards and modern alternative boards as well. We'll get some classic skateboards and some surfing memorabilia from time to time. It attracts all types from collectors, surfers, long-time members of the surfing community and people that just love the SURF CULTURE. We'll have some food and drink...and some really awesome coffee.It's different than other "Board Swaps" because we just supply the place and the atmosphere for the event to happen. We don't take any money or force you to take store credit for what you've sold. It's another event that we, at the Beach House put together to continue to build a Surfing Community in our neck of the woods...that's what it's all about; surf culture.Contact the crew at the Beach House if you have any questions -732-714-8566 or [email protected]

I'm getting a nice tropical feeling about this one - should be a fun couple of days mid-week, with any luck!


TS Chris:

Felt good to get in the water - it's been a while. That darn work thing has been kicking my a$$ lately.


All good now, though - water is warming up quickly, sun is out, and the wind is offshore somewhere - get some if you can!


 ;D

A couple of takeaways on this for me:


1. I like the team format - it was a fun change!
2. For future live broadcast TV use, this is perfect. No waiting period - heck, no waiting for sets to come in!
3. I love the wave, but I found myself missing the unpredictability of the ocean.


What did y'all think?
