Magic Board

I've seriously had the most fun on this board we have on loan from Ryan.
Just took it out to a little reef not too far from my house; it picks up in the hollower parts of the wave and glides so smooth through the flat sections.
Winner winner chicken dinner.

Erica Ms. America

I absolutely love this girl and can't spend nearly enough time with her.
Here's to many many many more years with you :)
I love you, Erica

John Wesley | 7.7 Spacepin

Erica and I met up with John at a nearby beach break that had some remnants of the wind swell hitting.
He took out his newly shaped/glassed 7'7" pintail and was tearing the place apart.
Take a look at what John has going on over at his blog: allshewantsisdiamonds

Day Trippin'

Spending some quality time with Ms. Erica Burtrum today as we trekked up and down the beautiful California coast in search of whatever leftovers this last swell had for us.
We found some fun ones in a little nook just off the highway...

Reefy Lefts

I'm in love with a Goofyfoot girl in a world full of right oriented waves.
While it does provide challenges, the time spent searching and finding a lonely, [nearly] secluded left, is inexplicably rewarding...
