After paul jenson’s workshop I will be leaving vancouver Island and driving down to San Diego for the rest of the winter to work. Not much up here in Tofino during the winter. Well i will be driving my old V Dub van down the whole coast. If anybody wants to meet up for a surf I would love to meet some fellow swaylockians. I hope my van makes it! Also if anybody hears anything about work for ding repair or glassing please shoot me a line. Also I am a USCG masters 50ton captain if anybody has any leads. I am hoping I can steal the wifes camera for the trip down so I can post some photos of the drive (she is working till end of dec then meeting me). Thanks guys it should be fun!
Also I will work anywhere it dosen’t have to be San Diego I just lived there for a long time.
PM me if you want to stop by Newport Or -
Recently the center of big wave tow surfing… Ha! Seriously.
Hit me up when you get down to San Diego and we can go for a surf.
Jealous, wish I could do a trip like that.
This could be a very cool thread .
south bay LA…come on down!
let’s see, I think there are one or two Swaylocks guys in San Diego – hmmm who is there anyway? well Resinhead if you want to go on a seal bashing trip… stingray if you surf N. County… I’m sure there’s at least ONE more. Or a dozen. Or three…
Give us a head’s up when you get close, we’ll organize a parade into town and then go surf – or something!!
that sounds great Keith, i have always wanted my own parade haha. I think I will take photos of everyone and the trip down and post a daily thing on this thread. I am really stoled to meet alot of you guys!
I’m in Monterey Co. and am up for a surf if my knee is in shape or a cold one if not. Mike
I am so stoked this will be great! its funny how I am so excited by this and I thought I was jaded by traveling around the world and surfing for years.
So I left vancouver island today. Had perfect overhead wedging barrels yesterday to send me off. I took some pictures of victoria as I left on the ferry I will post those with the photos of our first day at jensons workshop tommarrow. I am stealing WiFi form the local safeway and am headed of to find a good parking space to sleep in. Cheers, I miss my wife already but it is good to be on the road again!
Well I am here in Wahington at Paul Jensons workshop. IT is Farkin great. I have been hangin and working about 12 hours a day its been so much fun, great time. I am goin to pu the rails on my board tommarrow and today I foiled and made my first set of fins with pauls help to make the panel. Does anybody have any advice on glassing on wood fins with epoxy? Well i have about 2 more days here in Port Townsand, which I am sad about since it is a great place. I don’t think this trip could of started better.
If anyone can tell me how to make my photos apeare I would be stoked. I am using a mac.
I’m down for a surf session… O.B. or the shores this week end. Have a great safe trip man!!!
Which OB are you refering to?
The Venice location is throwing me off.
Thanks triton I hope It will take me at least a week so to get down to socal so I can see as many wonderfull sways as possible!
Sorry, haven’t updated information in a while, forget about the Venice part. Avalanche, Ocean Beach is one of my favorite spots besides for the cliffs. It would be really cool to get a beer-b-cue going or something…
Def. something to look forward to.
Keep it save on your trech south brother man.
