If anyone finds a wooden finless plank laying aorund Wrightsville beach trying to get a tan, having coffee at Cafe del Mar, or browsing the oils and finishes aisle of the local hardware store, please let me know. It seems my favorite board has gone on a walkabout...Thanks!

I am frothing to announce the success acquisition of a 5'3" Tom Wegener Sea Glass Tuna Project board!
I've been wanting to put one of these to the test since I heard about them. Buzz definitely had something close with the Goldfish project, but not exactly refined...sorry Scott! It was afterall a scrap piece of epoxy foam that they were using for airbrushing or resin tinting backboard ove at In The Eye Surfboards.
Mark Mertens from GSI hooked me up with dinner and a sliding machine. The two best gifts a guy could ever receive! Thank you Mark! It's on loan from the Wegener/GSI museum for the time being so if you see me shredding ask me for a go on it. Time to get stoked!

My best friend when I'm body surfing or in surfing lessons with WB Surf Camp have been myForcefins over the past 3 years. I spoke with them recently and they are about to release their specially made Surf Fin soon. I have a picture but I can't show you because they sent me the photo never having taken a photo of it and its still under construction. So, I'll post this one instead...

Had a pretty incredible year. Really got a lot of chances to push the alaias in a number of places and variety of conditions. Although I've rediscovered my thrusters, I'm still stoked to see what 2011 will hold in the way of sliding. Here is a reflection, via photos courtesy of Chris McQuiston at Local Sessions Magazine and video courtesy of Daniel Sacchi of one such session during Hurricane Earl...Happy New Year to everyone, and if you're interested in an Alaia, I've got 6 sets of blanks to carve out as well as Handplane 2.0!
Thanks to my wife Jada, WB Surf Camp, In The Eye surfboards, Rip Curl, DaKine, Smith, Force Fins, ESM, Tom Wegener, and all the photographers and friends out there who made this such a killer year!!
