Its been a long time...

  • Its been a very long time, too long actually since Ive actually done anything surf related. pretty much since Sandy ripped through my life and changed the game for me and my family. Ive wasted a lot of time, Ive found myself making excuses for not paddling out, I'm always finding reasons to not be around those who were once my closest friends and I'm over it. Ive missed too much.

    Today I didn't surf, i didn't skate, i didn't even walk onto the beach, I took my board down from the rafters, stripped the wax and cleaned the filth from my flooded apartment off of it (over a year later). Now i have an ear to ear smile and instantly feel better about myself.

    Its absolutely amazing what emotions you feel when you do something as simple as cleaning a board, holding a board and remembering what you can do with it. I actually want to surf again.

    Just some ding repair needed, a set of boots and gloves and ill see you in the water.
