Longboard.net Forum - Since 1997

So a casting call popped up in my newsfeed for Netflix's THE OA.

One of the roles they're casting for is as follows...

ROLE #5: Male, 30s-50s, American, comfortable speaking Vietnamese, surfing skills a plus.

Other roles are...

ROLE #1: Female, 65+, of Vietnamese descent, MUST speak Vietnamese, does not have to speak English.

ROLE #2: Female, 30s-40s, of Vietnamese descent, should speak English well and comfortable with Vietnamese.

ROLE #3: Male, 30s-40s, of Vietnamese descent, should speak English well and comfortable with Vietnamese.

ROLE #4: Male, 8-12, of Vietnamese descent, should speak English well and comfortable with Vietnamese.

So if you're an "American" (I'm guessing this means anyone, not just a person of Vietnamese descent), male, and 30-40 years old, comfortable with speaking Vietnamese, and can surf, you can appear on Netflix!

Agency is Aufiero/Horn Casting. Email to send inquiries to is aufierohorncasting@gmail.com.

Just wanted to put that out there! :)
I took a peek at my local Seaside Heights, NJ surf cam this morning from my desk as I often do and ended up getting a cool show: there were a few whales spouting and repeatedly breaching. I was able to get a few screen captures. I would have rather seen it in person, of course... but I called my wife, who was able to zip over to the beach and got to see one breach in person. Pretty neat and not incredibly common for NJ. Although, last fall was a great whale season here. Maybe this will be another good fall for it. Just thought I'd share the show.



Anyone know if there's a local source in San Diego to rent a space to glass a board? Might be more of a Swaylocks question, but I thought I would ask the Jamboard community first. Going to check with Bird's Surf Shed. If I recall, they rented space by the hour.

FINALLY shaped my first board, an 8'4" epoxy transitional shape wide point back hull, s-deck slight vee diamond tail based off an 8'6" Wilken vee bottom transitional board shaped by Robbie Dick.

Yes, I chose an incredibly challenging shape for my first go-out with a planer. Nothing like diving into the deep end.

Blank is on an angle in picture, so it looks like one side is wider than the other. Still need to fine sand. Only took me a meager two years of gradually sanding to make it!

Orange board is the Wilken...it's actually a deep vee diamond tail.

Any sage advice is more than welcome, since I'm a total newbie to the shaping world. Wanted to glass in a space to avoid any dust from the garage shaping room.
waves provide enjoyment
I know this post may not be the most well received with the climate of the politics these days. However, I am curious if there are any politicians that surf? Surfers need a voice too LOL
think it maybe a yater any thoughts
Anyone care to chime in on how balsa boards were glassed originally. My Velzy Jacobs seemed to have been glassed light.
Looking for women's business attire that will help women leaving the military transition into the business world. If your wife or significant other has anything please consider donating. I can assist in North County if that will be of help.
