    WSL (love it or hate it) Improvements Needed

    WSL sure does beat golf.... Think I got too many addictive sports, so golf is not option for me... My surfing is barely there these days living in Colorado (though I do find it in my mind when in the mountains snowboarding/snowskating/powsurfing and in the rivers on standing waves)... I did...

    Powell no ka oi question

    Here is that friend of mine, John Dillon, on the No Ka Oi board at Lansdowne skatepark (Baltimore, MD). Photo was in Heckler Mag issue #39 early 2000.... John Dillon "is the best" when it comes to style, especially surfing the concrete!!...... Edit: Notice the water in the bowl he is carving...

    Yep. That would be a cool option. At times they have the video going and all you see is pre-surfing or pos-contest surfing going on and just the sound of the waves with maybe some beach sounds as well. So zen like.... Your suggestion is spot on.

    Powell no ka oi question

    Longboard 9 1/4 by 35 or so. Not likely made anymore. Not really a collectors item except it had a cool look and actually skated well. Friend used to ride skateparks with it. Post up a pic of it. Worth something to someone.

    Suggestions for WSL online/app/tv viewership experience... At risk of "You know what you should do" isms.... Suggestion: WSL needs to do a better job updating their webpage and apps with realtime info and do it timely (re Standby calls, estimated return to comp forecast, etc.). Reason...

    What's Written on the Fin? (Board Found in Junked Car)

    Nice call on the fin!!!..... Wonder what the story is on the junked car and board in it. Not sure if the guy selling it has a chance of unloading it in Colorado. Too pricy for me to river surf it.

    WTS: Slalom Trucks

    Slalom boards are typically short. More of a function of width of the board to wide soft wheels. Those trucks are narrow and built to turn on the dime. Not a longboard cruiser truck by any means and not a park board or street board truck.

    WTS: Slalom Trucks

    Slalom was fun as all get out back in the days of the rebirth of slalom racing. I need to dump some of my slalom stuff as well. Or maybe we can start on old guy slalom race scene where you fall and break a hip and die. Hahaha. Better than posting crap all day in Facebook. Hahaha.

    Where are my brothers?!?

    Be careful. If you start to get chills that are uncontrollable, go to the ER or call 911. Almost lost my wife when pain meds masked a kidney infection caused by stones. She went into septic shock in front of my eyes at the hospital. Scary, was my oldest sons 13th birthday that day, so I had to...

    Classic line in the first 30 seconds. "Only the surf check will tell.... The surf sucks we are going skateboarding.”
