Brier Neck

The move is complete and finally taking some time to breathe in the salty air and slow it down.

Surf Trip

This years wave splurge was Nicaragua. Feeling that Costa Rica has become too good to be true, the search for empty lineups started. While Playa Colorado is not totally empty, it is quiet, blows offshore round the clock for 330 days/year, and has a nice mix of deep reef and fast hollow beak breaks. At the edge of the jungle, monkeys and iguanas, butterflies and pelicans fill the air. The lineup is mellow, a mix of low key locals, visitors, and dodgy expats. It's worth the trip.

Christmas in July

Arthur came out of nowhere in the first inning of hurricane season. As the water temps in the Northeast continue to be record cold, we knew she would bounce off the icy bubble protecting us. And she did, moving at mach speed off the outer banks, it was a game of where to be and when.... So, we raced up north hoping that window would be the best. And, as most surf trips go, the anticipation of it all is the best part.

Spring Session

Its been a winter of watching snow forecasts and chasing lines in the snow. Watching swell forecasts go by without getting wet, but content with the learning curve of a snowboard, appreciative of fresh snow, warm fires and fish burritos. Long Friday night drives deep into Vermont, alpine conifers bent with wet snow, and the familiar site of a dying barn. All of it now filed neatly into my mental slide show. Maybe just one winter, maybe a lifetime of winters, all I know now is that spring is here and so am I. Spring session in Rhode Island welcomed by sun, swell, and no crowds....
