Donkey Point

At least they named the spot correctly. I'm not sure if I would have put this footage out there, I'd be embarrassed.

Bread to Fly

KaserOne over at Daily Bread sent this interesting one in. I'm guessing there's no photoshop involved, but I can't for the life of me figure out how this guy got in this position.

Laugh At Those Silly Surfers

We've all seen the pics of the Cardiff Statue all dressed up, but rarely do we get the pulled-back view. This is probably not the reaction that the City of Cardiff envisioned when they approved the installation of the now-famous Surfer Statue. Yes, Cardiff, they are laughing at you.

Do You Dare?

Do you dare? That was the question posed with this submittal. I guess my answer is clear. I support surfboards made in the USA, by surfers in the USA. Surfboards should not be imported. Support your local surfboard craftsmen! My apologies for the language on the pic...but then again, this isn't a family website.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008


I'd love to know the story behind this pic. Is it a random Euro in a suit who stumbled across a group of surfers and wanted to take a pic with a board for his grandkids, or some legend holding one of his early crafts? We'll never know. Either way, I enjoyed the pic and found it here.

Thanks to reader plcasey for sending this one in. I'm surprised that they didn't get Sam George to endorse this product.

A fitting end to this election week. Reader Mike, from Daily Stoke sent me this. I'm not politically inclined, but I could have sworn that Obama was a goofyfoot! I'm calling photoshop! Thanks Mike and a good weekend to all!

A Couple From the Road

Here are a couple shots from my recent trip up the California coast. The first kept me out of the water at a very sharky surf spot north of Big Sur. The second just scared me. It was found in a town in Central California that was the last place I expected to see the SUP Pimp in action.

Kyping Kaser

Friday's donkey has to be worthy of the weekend. This pic from KaserOne's site fits the bill. I'm not sure what he was thinking, but hey, we knew he wasn't a rocket scientist anyway. Have a great weekend everyone and keep your kids safe this Halloween (keep them away from Kaser's van)!

I'm bailing on society later this week to try and get my surf back on. I've been out of the water for much of the year due to injury and I'm going to try to shake the rust off on a solo trip up the California coast. Me, a little food, and a truck full of bonzers will hopefully do the trick. YDD will be back next week.

The Surfing Melting Pot

A surf school in California uses the above picture to attract some clients.

While the above picture to attract others.

It sure would be nice if they put them all together and not highlight the issue. Surfing should be color blind.

Charles "Donkey" Baer

That's right folks, the original Internet donkey. If you don't know about CWB, you've not truly experienced the Internet. I've got about as much regard for Chuck as I do the rest of the world's politicians...that'd be none. Ah yeah, get it on!

Skim Milk Please

I don't normally visit or post pics from Daily Bread since KaserOne isn't my biggest fan. I do like most of his pics though. This is a good one sent to me by reader Brent. Now, everyone be good Internet users and click over to Kaser's site and enjoy the rest of his show.

Impressive Surf Video

OK, so I've posted up some really bad surf videos lately...hopefully this will redeem me. Reader Waldo (where has he been?) sent me the link to this. I was glued to my monitor as I watched it. It has it all: switch-footed ripping, barrels, reverse-fin takeoffs, kickflips. I was in awe!

Why must people put up videos of their family vacations on YouTube? This classic has some serious flow-rider action. Great weekend to all!
