I’m Going Gay For Chase Burns

I’d never heard of him before now and I have no idea what he looks like. He may even have man boobs, but fuck it… I’m going gay for Chase Burns based on his editing. Sorry MMM and sorry Chase. Hope you don’t mind getting man-stalked.

Portugal is Holding

I’ve been crusing Google Earth allot during this flat spell. Through a combination of user photos, the new timeline feature and ocean terrains, I’ve found that Portugal is HOLDING. From this picture I found while looking at user’s photos, it like a few beings know it too…

You can view this location without GE on Panoramio.

The Present at Shelter 5/21

This Thursday the present will be screening with the Matson 2 at Shelter Surf Shop in Long Beach. Good chance to see it if you didn’t, great chance to watch that insane alaia barrel at the end again if you have.

Also, you can fondle some insane sliders like this one:

Maggie Selling Prints in the Encinitas Street Fair

The lovely Maggie Marsek (you may know her as Miss Surfy Surfy 2009) has a booth Saturday and Sunday at the Encinitas Street Fair. It’s going to be right across from the Soft Spra car wash.

You should stop by and leaf through the prints. It’s like looking through records only you don’t have to spin them on anything to hear beautiful music.

Hanging Five – Art & Surfing

Hanging Five is a movie about art and surfing that looks at why the surf culture supports and creates art. It comes to us from the filmmaker who brought us Riding The Wave, which is a great look at capitalism in surfing.

Blacks Key For Sale On Craigslist

I just found this listing for a fabled Black’s key on Craigslist. The price? 2,000 dollars, no pass included, so park at your own risk.

I’m moving, and no longer will need my key to the gate at Blacks. This is your one and only chance to get a key. This is just the key, no pass included. Park at your own risk.

Keywords: Black’s, Blacks, Beach, Key, Surf, Surfboard, Al Merrick, Skip Frye, Pavel, Vintage, la Jolla, Fish, Bonzer, Campbell Brothers, Liddle, Hull, Displacement, Egg,

* Location: San Diego

A famous long boarder’s brother once told me how he found one in the lock. I heard another guy tell a story about a ‘friend’ who ‘just happened to look’ in the back of a truck parked at the bottom and see a set of keys there. He promptly relieved the keychain of the rare one. You know, as cool as it would be to have a key, I’d rather take the goat.

Do you have a black’s key story?

Reuben Margolin’s Kinetic Wave Sculptures

Soon as I hit it big, I’m going to commission Reuben Margolin to build me one of his kinetic wave sculptures. But first, we’ll need to go for a surf. My favorites are at 5:38 and 7:12.

If you read the erBB enough, eventually you’ll find something as good as this wedged in between all the right wing propoganda posts:

The Present

This feature on Surfline just got me insanely stoked on seeing the present this weekend in Encinitas at the La Paloma. Maggie and I have our tickets, we’ve seen the trailer, we bought the Mattson 2 album and some Ray Barbee tunes and we are ready to see it all diced and spliced, packaged and shit… what’s surfy that rhymes with packaged? Crackage… swackage? Anyways, you know all the heads are going to be there and that afterward, the Saloon will be impossible to navigate. MMMM MMM fun.

If you don’t have your tickets head down to see Devon at Patagonia Cardiff. I wonder if the tickets have the same ironclad guarantee as everything else they sell?

Here are some pics from the flick you might not have seen yet…


My special lady friend Maggie Marsek is now blogging at Sealayer.com. It’s only been running a few weeks, but she’s already posted about the uber talented Chris Cravey, our trip to the Salton Sea, some Gothic Dolphins sightings and other rad surfy/cooky/photoy stuff.

Go check it out and leave a nice note. She gets giggly and blushes over sweet comments. I love it when she blushes.
