Howzit John, Looks like everyone had a good time, to bad about the surf. We've got another swell building today and that's after a good sized one that hit on Wed. Not sure how long it takes for them to get to the mainland but thay seem to be stacking up so things should be good for you guys. One of these days I'll make it to a SA party, wanted to send some raffle stuff but the rules said you had to attend to donate.Aloha,Kokua
John et al.
WoodMaven also donated a handcrafted foiled wood fin blank.
As for more info on the surf report... Mark and I were the only ones to make it out. Mark was the only one to successfully ride an outside wave. His ride was probable a 10' Hawaian (back) backside left that he worked nicely for a quite a long ride before kicking out just before the entire bay closed out. The waves were very shifted and often closing out through the entire bay. I had what would have been a nice wave till it kicked up at the last minuted sending me right out the front on what was probably a +20' face and then came down on my back. Mark rode the giant and the giants rode me on 2 other occasions. The big sets that rolled through were probably 20' backs.
The UCSD boys headed north to Andrew Molero (sp?) and got some good shoulder high stuff.
On the way back south today (Sunday), Jesus surfed Pico and Mark, Tim and I surf C-Street, Ventura.
So besides little to no surf opportunity, fun was had by all. Lots of good boards were on display. Lots of good conversation and more fun putting names, faces and usernames together.
Thanks again to Mike and Julie for organizing and to all that made the event another success.
a few random shots:
raccoons hang 10 - or is it 20?

Thanks to Mike, John and everyone for a great time. I made new friends that I look forward to sharing shaping and surfing with. Talking surfing and just hanging out was a blast. A semi gun is next up on my shaping stand! Next time 4est and MarkSSD won't be the only ones making it out. The LokBox fins from the raffle will defintely get used.
I want to see Keith shape with an axe.
thanks again to everyone for a great time and sharing!
Thanks Swaylocks and crew. Had a blast,
