Here's Barney with a circa 1986 shot up near his zone in Santa Cruz. Barney's a legend. One of the funniest people I've ever met.

I used to shoot HB a lot. I don't know what happened. This day was super fun with little wedges popping up everywhere on the shorebreak. Brogie Panesi with a rad punt for a little guy.

Here's Chase Wilson up in LA. This day was so fun. Or at least for me. I guess you'd call it work for everyone else pulling into closeouts.

This wave of Conor Beatty in LA was so sick. The thing just grew and grew. He traveled for quite a while. Definitely the wave of the day.

Dillon Perillo with a little fin blast up in NorCal. This day was so fun. It felt like a warm summer day. Not a drop of wind, no one else out and cold beers. Sign me up.

Here's Mitch Coleborn in Newport. We had just stepped off a plane from scoring in Brazil. You'd think we'd be over shooting Newps. Maybe the jetlag had something to do with it.
