Surfin' Fire

Surfin'Fire is a San Diego "surf school"...but this is taking it too far. That is some protection from the ash, or protection from the stinkbug population, you decide. Pic submitted by intern alan m., photographer unknown.

Ash Wednesday

As the fires rage on in San Diego, the ash is filling our lineups. I'd rather surf with 100 funboarders than deal with the dirty water. The donkeys have finally won a point! Pics taken by sufermag BB poster "L8".

Flamus Interruptus

I got caught sneaking out for a surf yesterday morning at a North County beach break. After a few very good waves it was a very busy day from there. First, had to evacuate the office in Encinitas by 11am, then I got my family out of our home at 3pm because the air quality was so bad. I stayed behind with the dog and fortunately we're's still burning and far from over and it'll be hard to breath around here for weeks. My thoughts go out to those who weren't as fortunate in this fire.

Double Trouble

It looks like reader Jeff has some explaining to do. His "friend" Tanan sent these in for our viewing pleasure!

PS. Additional notes from Tanan explaining the pics:

This guy has been spotted in Cardiff revolutionizing surfing as we
know it. Gone are the confines of only standing on your board...
complex posturing is the next frontier. Rumor has it he even modeled
for the new Cardiff statue. Just beware of his leaping man hugs to
welcome newcomers to his break... and new way of "surfing".

Hi Mom!

Forgetting about the wave for a moment, this young lad took the time to wave to his mother on the beach. Alan M sent this in from YouSurfed.
