How to Read Buoy Reports

There’s no doubt that the dawn of the internet-age has affected the sport of surfing immeasurably. Gone are the days of showing up to the beach with little more insight than a coastal flag-pole whipping in the breeze. Today we have constantly updated, highly detailed swell and weather forecasts that tell us everything we want to know about the day’s surf scenario. And of course, if all else fails, we can always log on to the old interweb and check out a live beach camera just to be sure.

But does the modern era of online surf reporting necessarily mean there is no longer a need for surfers to understand, at least on a fundamental level, the interrelated dynamics of weather, wind, and swell? Are buoy reports and swell maps completely outdated? You need only ask a man of the sea – be it a knowledgeable surfer, sailor, or fisherman – to realize the answer is unequivocally no.

If you’re truly going bushwacking in search of epic surf, accept that the journey will inherently suck at times. “The hardest camping trip we’ve ever done was probably a 10K hike into a really secluded spot with all of our gear,” says Pete. “We were dropped off by a boat and had to hike this trail that we thought was going to be easy and only take us four to six hours.

The Iconic VW Bus

Posted by on Apr 7, 2012 in surf photos | 0 comments

Every one that was around the surf scene, especially in the 60′s and 70′s will remember that ever present VW Bus. It was the surf vehicle of choice to most of us and too many surfers around the world. They were cheap to buy and to maintain, which was a good thing since most of us, at least the ones I knew didn’t have much money. Check out my photo page, scroll down and take a look at the photos of some buses that will hopefully bring back some great memories. Any one that knew me back in the day will recognize the one on page 12. even though it is not the exact one it is identical to the one I had minus the curtains and board racks. sure brought back some great memories for me. Well take a look and enjoy!
