THE MOTOR-SURFER

.........................................................

Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.

Rio Rio Rio - The 2011 Billabong Brazo Pro

...Starting this morning, the world's best surfers will be recovering from a serious hangover and praying that any illegitimate children they may have fathered from last year's event won't show up to the contest.
Luckily, the contest has been called off for the day by the judges due to "6-foot closeout waves"... Hu? I (and probably everyone else in the surf world) would be pretty stoked to watch some Brazos take a pounding in some big closeouts, but seriously though I am kinda surprised... I guess the closeouts would mean a 1-maneuver-style contest, making it weird/stupid to "claim" a wave that you did just 1 choppy air reverse on... or is that standard practice in Brazil? JK, JK...


Whatever, I hope they make the call tomorrow so I can have something to do at work other than actual work. Check out the video preview below. Watch the contest live here BILLABONG PRO RIO.
