Gettin’ by High and Hungover

Another year has to come to pass and another hangover has descended upon the Central Coast. Dreary weather dominated our week long stay but a few breaks in the clouds gave way to a couple memorable media sessions. Here are some of the highlights. Hopefully we’ll throw up some edits on our Vimeo page soon!

Camel vs. Red Beard

There’s a lot of female boogieboarders out there wondering what Brett’s beard smells like.

Willie getting his yoga practice in a little early.

What is Brett thinking right here at this moment? We’re pretty certain that he’s picturing how he’s going to edit this barrel into his Werewolves of London prone segment.

Was this barrel worth getting sick for? Only Willie knows the answer.

Brett rotating somewhere between LT’s and the pier.

St. Patrick’s day came early for Roldan in the form of green barrels and red beards.

Definitely worth locking your keys in your car.

The werewolf putting a finishing howl on 2012.

Gravy Butt

You can always count on a solid roll call response when the horn is sounded on Thanksgiving in the 805. With jobs, babies, and various big kid responsibilities slowly encroaching, the added holidays allow extra water time windows for the 805 crew. This year proved to be yet another good showing with some clean fall conditions and a decent swell greeting the local boogs. Here is a look into some of the media coverage that went down.

A slice of Fall clarity.

Roldan toobs to revos were pretty standard this day.

Willie probably posted a dune sunset shot or two on Facebook while in this toob!

The view from da porch. No need for purp filt.

Calf grabs all day, tai chi all night.

Snap and hold for a sec, check your watch, then pull it back around casually. Ride it to the beach, grab a Torps, stroke your beard and call it a day.

Louie calling upon the strength gained from years of tying iron.

After watching Mark miraculously make a couple toobs over the course of the week, we came up with the new verb “Wilbur” after his namesake. He definitely wilbured his way out of this tube.

Thanks to the Dawson influence, Louie was a regular down at Stonezone doing turns like this.
