I finally got out again a couple weeks ago and went for it on my 7'0 Vaquero De Las Olas. It's pretty much a perfect surfboard for The C*ve. Just point it in the right direction and it does most of the work. I'd love to ask Andreini why it seems to go the exact right speed for the wave. Like a magnet to the pocket. Perfect for a lazy daddio like me.

When I was out there, a nice chum named J.J. paddled over and we chatted a while. He mentioned that Andreini was making a line of less expensive sticks called "Poor Boys." That would explain the clear board I was jonesing for on the rack in Santa Barbara several months ago with the pricetag of $575, new. Yippee kai yay!

The Neslcott Reef contest went off yesterday—paddle only. Sounds like an amazing event and I'm glad they decided to forgo the jetskis (except to get to the lineup). I'm hoping to see better pictures and videos soon! Full report HERE. Thanks, Slim.

Now I wonder what went down at the Yeti...
