Cool offshore flow.
Gulping slabs on the inside bar.
Oil stained boards.
Palm trees waft and police sirens wail.
Hope this November finds you well.
This week was memorable throughout Nor-Cal surf lands.
Local legend Lewis has a nice sequence on surfline from Thanksgiving.
East Coasters slid right with some massive, groomed niceness.
Yours truly slipped into some gems last Sunday.
Slate the jones.

Hope all is well just wanted to drop you some new info about Hi Shred. Okay so it’s cold here in Brooklyn. Not even the warmth of the sun is doing much and it’s only going to get colder. So instead of crying for the wahmbulance I just warm up with recent episodes of the VBS surf show Hi Shredability. I’ll make it short and just say the episodes are great, check em out, links and description below.

Kassia Meador slides all kinds of boards with absolute crazy grace. Like a bird, or a dancer, or something… a dancing bird on the water. We hope she isn’t bummed on that description, but anyway, she shreds.

From host Tyler Mason:
Myles Padaca might be best known for his roll on that reality-tv show Boarding House, or for his Triple Crown win back in 2001. I honestly didn’t know much more than that about Myles before (future episode spoiler) Fast Eddie suggested we spend a day with him. I guess I was expecting another member of the Wolf Pack to puff his chest up and give Jake and I hell for being skinny mainlanders, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. In this episode we see Myles as the family man, teaching his daughter how to shred at the Menehune Contest in Haleiwa, with the rest of the tiniest groms on the North Shore.

From host Tyler Mason:
Over the weeks I was staying in Monster Island we talked about all the things I wanted to do while in New York: a classic Rockaway surf trip via the subway, skate session at the Autumn Bowl, bbqs on loading docks, get into some shit with the fuzz, sweat and drink lots of ice coffee, wander around the Metâ€”all the typical tourist junk. The last two things on my “to-do” list were skate across the Williamsburg bridge and take the train out to Montauk to surf in Warhol’s old backyard. So, we put our boards under our arms and pushed our skateboards towards the bridge at about 11pm and headed towards Penn Station with a summer swell buildingâ€¦

In 1970 Mark Cunningham found an old pair of fins, hitchhiked to Sandy Beach on Oahu’s south shore, and started body surfing the heavy shore pound. Ever since then he has committed himself to accessing the ocean in the most basic way he can. Considered the worlds best body surfer, Mark is a 52 year old retired lifeguard who likes to keep things simple.
