Dry Run

Here you see Chad tuning up the young cobbs on quality mow and the importance of cooler hygiene.

Obviously there is something missing in this photo, but the strength coach still seems stoked.

Abe top-roping his first pitch. Obviously, he'll have some big shoes to fill as a climber following in my footsteps. Check the nonchalance of Sam, he reluctantly climbed with ropes and harness so that Abe would.

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!

Hometown Hero

Check out this footage of the Gundo benevolent alpha dog chargin huge Porto on his log this winter. I think the most impressive part is the paddle out. This is something to aspire to...I think.

What's your tacoshed?

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.
