Whose watching Log Alert!?

Log Alert! was conceived as a project for a very small group of friends (aka "the maloguas") to share their adventures in stoke, logging, cobbing, working out, eating tacos and other various joneses. Unlike many other social media ventures, Log Alert! was not intentionally designed to go viral, develop a following, or be a platform for proselytizing. That said, its seems that there are some early signs that Log Alert! has developed a few fans; case and point above.

The Logging Spirit al Sur

Burrito Sunset Log Session
By Ed Fladung



Drizzly logging session last night at the headquarters with the crew, a nice sunset and some clean small rollers. Seriously inspirational session after far too long with the stoke tank on empty. A welcomed change from my last sesshin a few days ago at the shortboard spot at low tide, when I dropped into some waist high slop, slipped off the board and landed on my back on almost dry reef (a pound of flesh left on the reef but nothing serious).

This post at Quality Peoples provides fine examples of stoke, cobbing, and logging. So fine, it made me weak.

First Schedule Four Log Alert of the New Season

video
This Video Could Use Magnification

On my second to last day staying at Dogmans, I finally was able to sound a Schedule Four Log Alert for Marias. The point was connecting from the rock to the pistons and this logger was never encumbered by more than 4 non-logging surfers in the line-up during the 3+ hour session. One kind soul on a fish loaned me his top in hour two so I could log more hours in the tropical sun and continue to eyecheck. He declared, in so many words, that he was stoked on the lulls as they facilitated eye-checking. These waves facilitated logging interesante!

Equipment: Cranberry Stick by Scott Henry
Surf: Head high. Clean. Glassy.
Weather: Sunny & high 80's
Water Temp: 82 degrees
Stoke - Schedule 4

Irish




An Oregon Surfrider jonser just sent around some photos from his recent trip to Ireland. A few caught my eye for understandable reasons. By the looks of these photos, it appears cobb friendly and log friendly. That said, I imagine the weather can be Irish.

Colorado SUP afficianado Earl the Pearl finds the newest and largest
Harbour log titilating "all it takes is a heavy back foot," stated the
Pearl while he knee paddled the vessel over 2 foot peelers on a sunny
day at El Porto last week. The board seems to work great if you are
under 5'8" 150lbs or over 6'4" 240lbs, for all others it's an enigma.
