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.

J-Bay Has Arrived...Slaterless & Daneless :(


Stop #4 on World Tour - The 2011 Billabong Pro @ Jeffreys Bay South Africa has finally begun. A contest I look forward to watching all year... When I can actually stay up for the 9-hour time difference. HOWEVER - This year both Kelly Slater (who is currently getting shacked off his gourd in monster Fijian barrels) and Dane Reynolds have withdrawn. Dane most probably having issues with his knee injury and Slater can't seem to get himself to leave Fiji's best swell of the year to sit and watch the tiny cold dribble lap the shores of J-Bay. This contest will definitely not be the same. These guys are the show stealers. I'm pretty bummed, but hope for the best... Meaning Slater shows up seconds before his heat, destroys everyone and Adriano is eaten by a giant shark. For the love of God, please don't let him win another contest. Brazil doesn't need the ego boost and the agro Brazos at my local are juiced enough. I've got my money on Parko, Jordy & Kerr. Check out the highlight video.
