Nias 2009

Via the Kiwi..... biggest swell in years, stars flew in and tore the bag out.... 30 broken boards in one day.

Lift-off festival.

(pic lifted w/o permission from Richie Rich....)

Ridiculously high level of talent stopped by yesterday morning and made what was a gutless wave a full on punt ramp. Kalani Robb, Ted Navarro, Dylan Graves and another ripper pulled into town and showed what can be done. And they were fun to surf with to boot. Now all we have to do is keep it up, alas by this morning it seemed the demo hadn't stuck on the collective mind. Oh well, we have something to shoot for......

Before the wind took South beach to task.......

Groomin' and groovin' time.....


It's that time of the year.
South winds buffing and polishing.
Sand being moved.
In or out.... depending on littoral drift.

Literal and figurative grinding into ever finer particles.
Creating jewel or being jewel thief.

We wait for purse strings to pull back,
to see what will fall out.

Polished diamond facets or shards of broken glass.

                                                Sunny and windy day one.

Smallish, mostly in the two to three foot range.

Except in the heats that got skunked and it was one to two feet.
