nice all around--sick drone shots.

...doing my taxes.  ???

Sweet, especially the one on the green fish. That's a keeper.

I enjoyed the one with David Lee Scales. I also found the one with Matt McGregor Mento entertaining and learning about British belly boards.

I need to dig back into some of the episodes I've missed. Will also have to check out this script flip episode, thanks for the heads up!


Couple from down yonder.

A Christmas miracle for the working stiffs? This one's for our ocean family. Happy holidays, ya filthy animals. See ya out there.

Nice, looks like more coming soon!

Who was that shooting from the water?

I posted a series of photos from last swell on my webpage, Session Stories:

Looked good, but tricky out there.

Iíd say the short answer is yes, itís safe for gringo surfers. I havenít been recently, but Stab has done a few decent write ups about it.

This is depressing. Wonder how long the sand will last. Hopefully things get better by the end of the season beginning of winter. Maybe it'll make some spots better? Shake things up? Trying to look on the brightside over here.

Chris is gonna stall out, hang around for a few days.

Hey all,

I know most of you probably hit up the Surfrider Long Island Chapter...but if you're in or near the city, feel free to come out to the Surfrider NYC chapter meeting this Wednesday Night at Loreley Beer Garden 7-9pm. There'll be much talk about the Williams Pipeline.

Hit me up if you want more details.

Posted a gallery of photos from Winter Storm Riley. There are a couple of Mike Gleason in there. I know I met a few other surfers that weekend. Would be psyched to connect if you recognize yourself or anyone else.

Looks a little nutzo to be honest.

Any surf shops with a sale on step ups?


Been doing the surf before work thing for almost a decade - work in Manhattan. I have to say though - I've recently quit because I realized it's not worth it. It really takes up a ton of time for what you get out of it. My advice to younger surfers in NY or anyone thinking how to maximize their wave count for quality waves - focus on your career first - because I think that'll give you much more freedom in the end. Yeah, you'll never be one of those guys that's a "local" always at whatever jetty at whatever street - but you'll be able to do strike missions and surf better waves around the world. You'll build relationships in PR, CR, Nica, etc...and I think you'll spend more time on quality waves.

I have a little note over my desk that says "Working is surfing". It's just a reminder that when I'm putting in extra time - I'm actually earning more freedom to surf. To me, the real advantage of living in New York is the insanely great opportunities to get ahead. If you couple that with figuring out some strategic long weekend strike missions (even a Fri-Sun strike mission can net you 8-9 sessions) and watching those holiday weekends (presidents day / memorial day / july 4th, etc). Just get really good at surf trip planning / and watching forecasts for last minute strikes because then you'll really score and if you have that cash to throwdown for those last minute tickets - you could pick off some insanely good swells.

So, I'd actually say living in a place that allows you to spend less time commuting - more time working / networking - and possibly in closer proximity to one of the airports is a pretty sick way to go. Remember once your career gets going - you can find additional ways to make money outside of your 9-5. Start earning people's trust - then you're telecommuting from CR for a week.

All that being said, I'm sure there are plenty of other "time-useage" algorithms to maximize your quality wave count. And I think each neighborhood offers distinct co-efficients in front of those variables.

PS - I DM'd you with my hood :)
