Story goes they wanted to name the town after the founding father but he was too modest to accept it.....hence the name. American Graffiti was shot there.

A bit smoky but there's some serious swell for this much to get around the corner from Ocean Beach.

A bit smaller when I was there but apparently the day before was like this.
Ocean Beach was still enormous.

Same, Golden Gate Bridge was similar size the few times I visited. Got to say, super consistent.

Watching some highlights of Stephane Gilmore surfing in this Tweed event. The best style of any female surfer and surfers in general EVER.

I watched her Coolade test vid. She was commenting that she wasn’t an aggressive/“progressive” enough surfer. Like it was bugging her. She shouldn’t worry.

Is this the thread where crabmeat was thinking about a new board? I'm a fan of Jordy but to his competitive detriment his style is too relaxed. He really makes this summer board look good:

This weather app looks pretty cool. Like Earthnull but for swell.

Wow, I love it!
