Tales From The North Shore Of Oahu

Man it's tough being a pro surfer in this economy—just ask Damien Fahrenfort.

For the record, TWS' Chris Cote and Travis Logie are "just friends" who happen to enjoy lycee martinis and long walks on the beach.

Took a walk in the deep sand from Rockpiles to Rocky Rights today and scored some chest high, long rights with a pleasant crew led by the one and only Michael Ho. Pops was killin’ it! He’s over 50-years old and still has the energy and stoke level of a grom. Carissa Moore was surfing really well, too. Mark Healey is a train wreck right now. He celebrated his 29th birthday last night in Honolulu with a bunch of friends and came away with a black eye and nasty hangover. He followed up the big night with a doctor appointment where he “got stabbed in the neck” and had a growth removed. He’s chillin’ at the house now nursing a Coors Light and talking story—with 13 stitches in the neck.

It’s a gorgeous day here on the North Shore so we took a little stroll down to Waimea Bay to jump off the rocks and hopefully see a few turtles. As you can see from the little clip above it was a successful mission… Reef McIntosh invited us to some fancy party up in Laie, something about Lamborgini girls and martinis…should be interesting especially considering Laie is a Mormon town not used to the sort of antics associated with a motley crew of surfers. The photos from the part are at the top of the page. Click Through To The Next Page For More
