Our last day we searched all over the west coast looking for waves. The north side was completely blown out by the massive swell. I got to surf Gas Chambers for the first time ever in my life. I got a massive barrel and on my second wave I made all the way to the rock wall, glad didn't kill myself on that one. Too bad we could get any footage, it was a picture paradise!
Till next time Puerto Rico!!!!!!

Puerto Rico put together a great event, not only the waves are firing, but the whole contest is moving very nice, all the guys from all over the world are really stoked to surf down here. I've seem so many old friends this week, really stoked.
Glad to see CUSTOM X being one of the sponsors!!!

The forecast for the entire time we are down here in Puerto Rico is great, it seems like we are gonna score everyday. I made this trip with Brian Holloway, we flew together from Orlando and down in PR we met with Damian Dinham, Dan Worley, Billy Andersen and Devin Ricke, the best of the best from Florida.
You can see Damian scoring this nice barrel!

My first day in Puerto Rico!...conditions were great, 6 ft glass all day long, we surfed in Middles right before the contest and after the contest till dark. It was nice to surf to all those PROs attending this event. The bad news, I got about 40 sea urchins in my right hand. I've surfed this place several times, never had an incident, now I got as many urchins as I could collect in one session.

With a gret turnout, we got ready for the second event of the season for the BODY GLOVE FBA TOUR 2011. This is the largest Bodyboarding event in Florida, it's a 2 days event with a double point in the Standings.
Sad news last night when the entire Bodybaording Community found out that our felow friend Eddie Solomon passed away after battling with Cancer for more than a year.
We decided to honor his memory right away and did a paddle out on his name.

Pretty active hurricane season!
Now we Maria, not as big as the other ones, but fun waves. I surfed in Ponce Inlet, couldn't believe it. 5-6 ft waves, light winds and small crowd. Now heading out to the SURF EXPO in Orlando, I'm stoked to see some friends and sponsors at the event.

Hurricane Irene continues to bring swell to New Jersey. It's a bit smaller, but plenty of surf. Here are my friends Damian Dinham and Dan Worley. Somebody forgot to take a picture of me!
The Jenks Pro was postponed for a day, so we had a whole of surf!

Ok, so we made the long drive from Florida to New Jersey. We were chasing Hurricane Irene. Tons of rain but no major damage on the road, I'm glad. Once we made it to seaside Heights, we couldn't wait a second to jump in the water. That was probably the best I've ever seen the East Coast. 6-8 ft, maybe bigger sets coming with perfect barrels and offshore winds. Nobody out, I couldn't believe it. I made the trip with my friends Dan Worley and Damian Dinham. We were so satisfied with the surf sessions, that we could have made that trip back home that day and it could've been all worthy.

New Smyrna Beach is one of the most consistent spot in all Florida. It could flat all over the State and you always find waves up there. Yesterday, we surfed some nice chest to head high waves, good conditions and almost no crowd, I couldn't believe it!
Now, the Hurriane season should start bringing some good swell soon!

Brett is the second storm this hurricane season. It got together last minute yesterday and even when it's not a major hurricane, still was good enough to bring some fun waves to the east Coast on Sunday, specially summer time. We went to Sebastian for an all day session. I hadn't surfed there in a long time. Now, let's see when we are gonna get a big one.

We surfed today the famous Salt Creek. When you park on top of the hil, you don't get to see how the waves are, so you have to walk all the way down there and it might be small or it might be big, from the parking lot looked decent. Dan and I decided to go down there already geared up and take our chances.
The best decision we made, glassy 5-6 ft waves, maybe bigger on the sets, peeling off so good and the water was warmer than previous day. This spot is one that i like to come back again.

We went last night to visit some Dan's friend and we got to surf this secret spot behind the Air Force Base where he works in Port Hueneme. That's probably the coldest water I've ever had in life, we couldn't stay too long.
Then, in our way back to Hungtington Beach, we stopped by at the contest to watch all the Finals. Dave Hubbard killed the PRO and DK Finals. He surfed pretty good in this event.

We arrived in San Diego, check a couple of spot, but not much surf going on, so we decided to go to CUSTOM X warehouse, right where they make our boards. It was good to see the shapers, JOJO and Debbie and everyone else working at CUSTOM X. Got to see every process of making a board, pretty sick!

I'm going to California this week for the US OPEN of BODYBOARDING. This is the first event for the 2011 USBA season. My friend Dan Worley and i are the only Floridians going up there. Forecast looks good and planning to surf all over Southern California.

We went back to Cape Hatteras and surf some smaller, but cleaner surf in Avon. Pretty fu surf day with the guys.
We also went to the Go Carts, if you've ever been up here, you should know already that there is not much to do around here, but this was fun!
Sunday, May 15, 2011
Som of the guys are competing in the 2nd OBX Shotout Surf & Bodyboard PRO-AM contest, but after the first day, we went to Avon in Cape Hatteras, some solid surf, the sets were coming 6ft plus with light winds, big and chunky.
Willie Barrio, a photgrapher from New Jersey came with us in this trip and took all the pictures we have, thanks to the man and the hard work. Check his work at www.williebarrio.com.

The Outer Banks in North Carolina. I haven't been up here in a while, so I decided to come up with some friends and do a rod surf trip. I've been coming to the Outer Banks for quite some time and have some good memories of this area. I just hate to wear a wetsuit again!
