Inspired Surfboards

That's What I Think About That

Sunday, August 29, 2004

I don't think I've ever been so stoked for waist high waves in my whole life!! If you live in Florida, you know how bad this flat spell has been. Personally, I've been freaking out. I made myself 3 boards in anticipation. I pulled up to the beach last evening to my delight found some really fun lefts coming in. Luckily I had my board. I was so stoked that I locked my keys in my car. It was quite the humbling experience. Obviously, I haven't really surfed in about 3 months. (it seems) I'm so out of shape that I was actually SWEATING in the water. And on a new stick with a less than perfect wax job, I did the splits on a takeoff and almost killed Stew, my new sander. I put the fear of God in his face for sure. I ended up stradling HIS board. It was funny. All was well until I realized that I had locked my keys in my car, and I was surfing on borrowed time while Nicole, her dad and brother worked away on my house. OOPS!!! AAA only took like 2 hours and I got to surf a little more, but I took "dirty lickens" when I got home for sure!! Oh man, I had to do it. 'Least I called first. But things are lookin' good!!! Some surf is on the way, I have so many boards to do right now (thank you), I'm lovin'it. We've moved in officially and I'm dealing with beachside withdrawls (7 years) but I love the new place, if I could do something about the little yipper dog across the street everything would be PERFECT. Quit reading this and GO SURFING!!!

I did it. I'm taking this opportunity to pat myself on the back. I just shaped #1000. I'm super stoked. I've been waiting for this one for so long. It's a beautiful 5'10" old school Beeg Feesh twinnie twin twin. No resin die or pinlines, just a multitasking groveler. I'm going to party like I was in College still. It's Ripko's 21st b'day uh-oh. Anyway, I know this is just a drop in the bucket. I was talking to my friend AJ earlier this year and was telling him, and he was like "yeah, we've almost done 2000" and I was thinking outloud: "how's that??" and he said "this YEAR!!!!" I'm glad someone's there to knock me back down whenever I stick my chest out. But I feel like I've graduated to the status of "lucky Hack" and after 5,000 I can be an arrogant lucky hack. Just kidding. But this has come at such a weird time. That was definitely the freakiest Friday the 13th ever. I was freaking for my sister. Jennifer lives in Ft. Myers, and when Charley was passing through I got a scary phone call from her and it freaked me out. But everyone was prayin' and she's ok. I have so many friends down there, thank God nobody was hurt. Charley also put on a pretty good show at my new house where Nicole, Hank and I watched the crazy wind until the early morning. Well, I'm babbling. Thanks everybody for supporting me and buying my boards, I'm going surfing.

I'm really sorry to leave such a bummer of a blah blah up for so long. I still miss my Grandpa, but I know he's smilin' down on me from a much nicer place right now. I've had one of those days. It all started usual enough. I got an early start on my trip down to Melbourne for materials. So I'm getting gas and those Krispy Kremes were calling my name, you know? And I got a strawberry filled one. Well as I'm driving a big glop of strawberry jam falls right on my shirt!!!!!!!! So pissed!! Anyway, I walked it off and got down to Melbourne and back. When I got into town there was some construction. So I'm minding the road, going slow and all and I looked away for like a second, and BAM!! Rear ended somebody, and they slam the car in front. So I'm in trouble for a pile up!! The funny part is that I thought I felt a booger so I was checking. So there it is, my new most embarassing moment. But what really sucks is that I found out the hard way that I saved a ton of money on insurance because I don't have coverage on my ride. So I'll call it the $3,500 booger. Hope you enjoyed this story. P.S. The store is all ready, check it out, order a hat and a tee shirt and help sponsor my booger.
