The History of Sissyfish


It's hard to believe that this spring marks the three-year aniversary of my taking up surfing again. As with doing anything you love, the time has just flown by. Or has it slowed down? Luckily, I've had this blog to record the accomplishments, kook-outs, blunders, revelations, snapshots and sketches from my Oregon surfing experience.

This post is my 150th entry into the journal, which I hope I'll continue to stay stoked on for many more years to come. And more surprising still is the fact that Sissyfish has been graced with 10,000 hits since I put a counter on it six months ago. Thanks to everyone for continuing to drop in.

I threw a bunch of pictures together and made a slideshow of my adventures up to this point. Hopefully I'll be able to reflect on these moments 30 years from now and feel a fraction of the excitement I had when I found myself catching waves again.

Here's to 150 more posts, 10,000 more hits and many, many more waves.

Once a surfer, always a surfer. If you hadn't taken it up again, you'd be suppressing a part of you (even if you wouldn't admit it to yourself).

10000 more hits? Is that what it's about, G?

Congrats....and here's to 150 more.

Thanks guys. It seems like even since I made the movie, there have been better trips and better photos. I'll save 'em for the next anniversary.

Nice!

Out of curiosity what made you start surfing again?

I was dragged out there again by the G-man, first commenter on this piece. I rented a Bic and got my ass handed to me... Also got an earache for a week, but something stuck and I bought a surfboard the next weekend.

The rest is Sissyfish-tory... bah!

Nicely done sir!

When are you coming out for a little more Bear Flag Soul?

Chum said...

Hopefully soon, Jeff! Looking forward to some warmish water and long period swells...

G said...

No, Slim, it's not about hits, but some of us enjoy interaction with others. But I know that's not your style. Viva La Sniper.

Try not to sound so self richeous next time you critique me, G.
