Surfed 1ft. Salt Creek, with the mayor of creek himself, Pat O. I rode Kai Barger's board and ripped. Pat told me the lefts off the point sandbar is the best ever. I'm bummed I had to leave, knowing how good Creek is going get.
The Eddie always had a bunch of politics (who's getting in, format ect.) But now I think the Maverick's contest is worse. Jeff Clark might not run the event, there might not be any money, not sure about the format, and some of the invitees are getting old (me). The best big-wave event I ever surfed was the Eddie in '86. 1st place was $1500. That wasn't a lot of money back then either. Anyway, they thew up a scaffold, and had the event in big shitty surf. We all surfed that day basically for fun, and bragging rights. I don't think that can happen again.
There is a tropical storm about to hit Hawaii. Hopefully we'll get some surf. As a surfer I don't worry to much about if the storm will do damage, just how the waves will be. That's f'ed up.— Brock
