Team Challenge...

I think the last contest I surfed at Seaside Reef was in high school. It was the only school event I won in 4 years on the OHS team. It's definitely an awesome wave. Here are some photos of the contest. At this event I was on the Surf Ride Solana Beach team with three other riders. In addition to the SB SR team there was a Surf Ride Oceanside team. Neither team won the event, but had a blast trying. Congrats to Hansen the 2x Champs. Don't worry guys, you're going down next year!

Here is a photo of me getting pumped for my heat.

This Photo was taken of Seaside local and SR O'side's team member Taylor Clark discussing strategy with fellow team member Gabe Garcia.

The surf conditions were very challenging!

RIP Sion

This post is to honor a fallen surfer. A man that pushed the limits of big wave surfing. I was never fortunate enough to have met Sion in person, but saw all of the unbelievable waves he was able to catch this winter. If you opened a surf magazine this year, I'm sure you've caught a glimpse of Sion charging a massive pipe barrel. His fatal drowning at mavericks may have taken his life, but his legacy will live on forever! May God comfort his family and give them peace. RIP Sion Milosky

BIG rocK

Wow, what an awesome day at Big Rock. Upon arrival I went searching for a sport boulder I had heard about on . When we found the rock it look really good. Great friction, features, and holds. I wanted the new guys to get the first shot at it, so Rex hopped on Kissed by the Sun 5.8 . Jon Went for the second attempt and had a tough time leading it. He came down and worked a route on TR that I sent. It was Praise the Rays 5.8 . After he figured out the crux moves it was smooth sailing to the top. After we all got a climb in on the Helios boulder we moved over to the main wall. Rex and I went for a multi-pitch climb while Jon produced some epic photographs.

Rex looking for something to grab on a bald face. There are very few holds on the lower portion of this climb.

Praise the Rays had a challenging crux move over the bulge. I had to pull off a balancing act with bad smears and small crimps.
Jon pushing over the crux.
This is a shot of Rex and me straight up the Trough 5.5 . All the water water streaks made for a slippery climb. To the left is my friend Marcio from Brazil, belaying up his friend Nate.
The four of us psyched to be he high in the sky.
