With rain coming down in buckets yesterday, we can be excused for watching the comp from the theater room at our place of residence down here called Komune. Photo: jc

10am: Kinda blown today (not the surf, me) after last night’s Roxy party that at the Komune. As luck and fate have it when I’m hungover, the waves are kinda pumping. On a bright note, the weather has improved and with the Quikkie Pro underway, it’s time to head down to the contest site. There are some great heats today; Parko vs. Dusty, Mick vs. Simpo, Kelly vs. Pat Gudauskas, and Dane vs. Jeremy Flores. Check yas later…
