New Foam- Arctic Foam


Arctic Foam was really good to work with. It is very dense and hard, but was surprisingly easy to shape. The finished shape and sanding came out very smooth with not any air bubble in the foam. And the blank itself is very white. Lets see how they surf!

2011 US Open of Surfing- the Venue




I came up for a tradeshow and it coincided with the US Open of Surfing. This is the biggest event that I have been to. There were thousands of people, a BMX bike course, Skateboard ramps and street course, band stages, countless tents for the kids to win free stuff. It was great to see the community and city get behind this event. Surfing is alive and well in Huntington Beach.
Thanks to the Agenda tradeshow for flying me up and getting me a room, and thanks to Hurley's Seth McKinney and Leilani Patachia for treating me like a VIP.

2011 US Open of Surfing- the waves



The waves throughout the opening rounds were small and even onshore at times. A swell came in and the waves turned on. Every time I went to check out the contest, the womens heats were on. By the time I post this, the event will be over. Let me know who won.
