    The lack of pictures or reports is due to the fact that December has been very (very) windy. Although there has been some good and big trade swell waves, it has been to windy and choppy to be any good on the North coast. The NW has been rideable and even has had a few good days, but work and family have not permitted the road trip. There has been some surfing for me but nothing worth documenting.

    That is, up to yesterday. My local break may not be a world class break (although it can get very good), but I truly think that it has a world class local crew. They come from all walks of life, from the very top to the very bottom, is usually very friendly, open, and welcoming, and you have guys that are either kooks or beginners and also your aspiring joe pro's; shortboarders, longboarders, and everything in between.

    Yesterday was the "La Ocho Christmas Party" Essentially, everyone pitched in to get together and have a good time. La Ocho Surf Shop sponsored a roasted pig and other food, people brought beer, hard liquor, wine, moonshine, and appetizers, Some surfers are in a band and brought the guys, and the aspiring or frustrated musicians jammed when the band was not playing.

    The setting and the ambiance was spectacular. The party took place in an overlook that faces the break, the sunset was spectacular and you had people in the party and surfers coming out of the water and joining in. Everyone was in a very jolly mood, and basically and truly it felt like the "La Ocho Brotherhood".

    Merry Christmas to everyone from PR!
