Surf in the forecast for Saturday, so we blasted off to get some surf. As we crossed the border the guard asked where we were surfing cause the were no waves when he came to work. As we drove up mt joshephine the bay was frozen and we started to question if there were any waves. well it turns out that there were. Some large sets coming head high most of the day. Stayed in the water surfing for about 4.5 hours left tired and stoked.

Horsing around.

A little action video of our horse. After a long ride nothing feels better than a good scratch. Here is how our horse does it.

Ice Racing

Its that time of year again, cold weather, frozen lakes, the ice racers come out to play. I took my son to see the races yesterday for the first time, I was impressed. We have our own little race way set up, good vantage point and cool sounds. Since my boss has been racing for years, I took my son into the pit area and checked out the car. Went up to the 'beachers' when the racing was started and took some video of the races for a couple hours. Good times.

Stoney Jan 8, 2011

Well some more swell down in Duluth on Saturday. Winston and I decided to go on an adventure and hit up some waves southern sytle. It was pretty cold, but by the time we got to the point it had warmed up quite a bit. The waves were going off pretty nicley steep and big. Met up with the Duluth crew and had a great time catching some waves. If i get a chance i will add some video that i took during that session, later in the week. In the meantime here are a few shots from that day.
