At the same time, others might argue for someplace else where the water is still 80 degrees. Week two of a log alert that, so far, has gone largely unreported. Shhhh!

Obama made a great call yesterday when he decided to prohibit new offshore drilling in continental US waters (about time!). Detail on decision can be found here.
Not surprisingly, Fox News isn't thrilled with the decision and they asked me what we thought of the decision. Here's the clip.

If you have a minute this interview is worth listening to. I was surprised to here Slater on the Dan Patrick show, but the interview is great. Pay close attention to when he starts discussing some small waves that he was surfing a few days before the interview.

A flash cobb (or flashcobb) is a small group of cobbs who assemble suddenly in a public place, to perform surfing, working out, eye checking for a brief time, then disperse. The term flash cobb is generally applied only to gatherings organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.The term is generally not applied to events organized by public relations firms, protests, and publicity stunts.

After years of virtual buoys and eye-balled surf sizing, Puerto Rico's North Shore is finally getting a buoy that will provide actual real-time wave data. This info should prove useful not only for forecasting, but also to figure out which spots might work best for a given swell. I guess it's time to dust off the wave log and start recording swell height, period and direction on those epic days.
A big shout out to Dr. Miguel Canals for bringing a surfer's perspective to this effort.
To make things even better, Canals is feng shui-ing a buoy off-shore of Rincón. It should be in place around Halloween. That's some seriously localized swell info on the horizon.

Native Point Dume surfer and author Katie Arnoldi has watched her beachfront community turn from rural, board-and-batten enclave to haute bourgeois beach club, filled with yoga moms on SUPS. She is not amused.
Her latest novel, Point Dume, is a study of the place she knows like few others. She skewers a variety of Malibu archetypes, but saves much of her venom for the despoliation of the coastal foothills at the hands of Mexican drug cartels and residential developers.
Sounds like this could provide some insight into the step behavior found in and around Malibu. Then again, it could just be sour grapes. Probably worth eyeing.

On the rare occasion, however, an overstoke can lead to some wayward eyes. Case in point: Steven Spielberg and George Lucas read John Milius's script for Big Wednesday and got so swept up that they traded points with Milius. They gave Milius points in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Star Wars for a piece of Big Wednesday.
Big Wednesday was a flop, and Close Encounters and Star Wars each grossed around $600 million."
Sweet eye for Milius who allegedly said that the loot "helped pay for his divorce."

Chadrico and I took the boys for some dry land cobbing. Abe's first camping trip was a great success. After hours was chocked full of yucks, magnification, strength, and cold beer. As an aside, 2 days later I surfed overhead Zeroes on the first legitimate South of the summer. I have high hopes for the M2!

The maloguas love tacos. They are also responsible stewards of our environment and seek to minimize their impact on the planet and waves we so enjoy. As such, it's important to understand your "tacoshed". What is a tacoshed?
The tacoshed, much like a watershed, establishes the geographical boundaries of a taco’s origins—the source of everything from the corn in the tortilla to the tomatoes in the salsa.
Here's a nice example pulled together by some CCA students. The taco the group deconstructed for the illustrations below was from Juan’s Taco Truck in the city’s Mission District
Even a single taco is a window into the complexities of globalization.
