No Waves but Plenty of Wind...

Not much going on in the wave department lately. There has been some good windy days though. This is my brother, he owns the other part of Tidal Stock. We love to enjoy what ever Mother Nature give us, surf, wind or snow.

Ultimate Boarder Competition Comes to Ventura

It has been a little while since I have posted anything sorry. A lot has been going on. I two trips coming up in May. First week of may I am off to Bermuda, then I come home for a week then off to Kauai. I am looking forward to both trips!!! I haven't been to Bermuda and it looks amazing. I can't wait to hit some warm water. The water around here has been freezing.

This week I was shooting the Ultimate Boarder Competition. It's basically a triathlon for extreme sports athletes. Athletes compete in surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding and the one with the best 3 combines scores wins($30,000). The cool part is that the surfing and the skateboarding were held here in Ventura. The snowboarding took place at Squaw Valley. Here are a few photos from the surfing and skateboarding.
