dream come true

surfing with annika i'm back from hawaii - it was a great trip. today my sister-in-law sent me these photos and i am ecstatic! as you can see, i had the chance to take my oldest daughter annika surfing - it was a dream come true. we even practiced a few stunts...  it was an absolute blast!!

and here's a couple more photos of some beach fun. if you look closely you can see that the kids had a lot of fun getting buried, and burying me, in the sand.

tom

tom_curren tom curren decided to play some tunes at his ripcurl shop on friday. i swung by to hang out for a bit. tom is one of a few, who actually are, true artists/surfers. he is a thinker. he is a great dad. he is a traveler. he is creative. he is someone who charts his own course. and he happens to be one of the most influential surfers of all time. yet, tom doesn't let that get in his way. he is authentic and soulful through and through. click on the play button below to listen to a sample of tom's fluid and freeform musical style. i recorded this on fri in the shop (while the recording quality isn't great, it's definitely worth checking out).
