Absolutely stunning wave images from Mr. Puccinelli who I discovered via Rebecca Olive's excellent blog. There's a colour palette in these photos that is making me very happy. Sorry about the layout glitches here, Blogger keeps changing my attempts to centre images and make things look tidy.

Kidman and Mont Mercury have been working like dogs to bring you surf entertainment. Mercury was later served more indignity when he was left standing around LAX by an idiot. It's a hard life being a surf star. Picture by the lovely Mish.

A Flexspoon that Hawaiian Chris had built for himself by Roberts Surfboards. Absolutely beautiful work on this thing, it's an incredible piece of hand built craft- there's a noticeable flex in it, that spine is a great idea and the fin set up is great. Chris has a serious archive of interesting boards and a really good knowledge of what works which makes him a pretty useful resource at times. I volunteered to go and collect it from Ventura which was entirely self serving. It meant not only did I get my hands on the boards, but I managed a fun surf, a quite informative chat with Robert and a stop at a favourite Mexican restaurant in Oxnard on the way home. Not a bad way to spend a day off.
