Jason Jesse Guadalupe Skateboard

Tweet This

This is a reissue of the popular  Jason Jesse Guadalupe Skateboard from the early 90s, I believe.

I saw this deck in two skate shops in Santa Cruz yesterday. I've been wanting this deck for years, so seeing this blessed deck twice in one day, seemed like a sign to buy it! And the board itself has a purple, my favorite color, stain!


This beauty won't be ridden though, she's going on my wall.

New Surf Art

Tweet This

I never know who I'm going to meet at the beach. Today, I met an artist, selling paintings out of his van. And I bought this one.

Now when the surf is flat, I'll look to this piece of art for inspiration.

Robie The Robber

Tweet This
On our way to see visit a friend Gio asks, "Do you have any coins?"

"What do you need coins for?" I ask. "You can't buy anything at Canada's house."

"I need coins for her robot," says Gio.

"What robot?" I ask.

I had no idea what he was talking about, but now I do.

Internet, meet Robbie the Robot Bank, a high-tech piggy bank made by Radio Shack back in the day. Watch out for your wallet though, he's pretty cute.

Family Bike Ride

Tweet This
We went on a family bike ride along the Pacific Ocean today. It went really well, except for the part where Vinny's pedal kept coming off forcing to ride back to the car, and drive home for the tools to fix it. Otherwise, it was swell.

Harlem Shake (Peanuts Edition)

Tweet This

The Harlem Shake is the new dance craze taking over YouTube .

One of my favorite versions of the Harlem Shake is by the Peanuts Gang, above. Check it out! And it's not my favorite just because it's a lot less weird than the original by video, below, by Filthy Frank, that went viral on YouTube inspring many other folks to make their own versions of the Harlem Shake.

Sea Lion Lunatics

Tweet This
The other day, while I was surfing the juvenile sea lions were harrassing me. And by harrassing me I mean they were jumping out of the water in my general direction, repeatedly. AND they were swimming under me.

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" I scream as the juvenile deliquent flies out of the water towards me.

The tacky teenager was only three of four feet away from me. He could have hit me!

This proceeded to happen 3 more times.




"If you stop screaming," he'll leave you alone says the BFF.

One minute later.

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh," screams the BFF as a sea lion hurls himself through the air towards her.

I remember when I was Gio's age playing on this same beach.

Mainly what I recall is talking to my hermit crab colony and shivering from staying in the water too long........
