A Rare Sight

Afloat on the WIlmington River in a plastic craft. Not my proudest day. But my van was dressed well and my Uncle saved the day in his hand-built wooden kayak. Huzzah!

A vimeo snapshot of my rusty trusty beach cruiser. Music is poached from the "Innermost Limits of Pure Fun". It's either "The Farm" or one of the Dragon Bros. or Denny Aaberg?

The Original Twin Fin

After a light post on Friday about the Spitfire Fin and airplane wings, I found myself face to face with the original twin fin. The B24 Liberator, a WW2 USAAF Heavy Bomber, just like the one my Grandfather flew in Italy. It even turns out they had his name posted on the bomb bay doors. Also on site was a B17 Super Fortress and a P51 Mustang (not pictured because blogger is having some personal issues).

No Surf Today. It was called on an abundance of sunshine laziness.

Small Waves and a Dead Fish

air:nice / water:cool but nice

Airplane Wings and Surfboard Fins

Checking out one of Roy's fine creations (bottom photo) gave me a big "oh yeah" moment when I realized how much wooden boards and wooden airplanes have in common. Let alone the similarities between boards and boats.

Here is the full breakdown from Roy: Spitfire Fin

First Coast Surf Film Festival 2009

I am preparing for the launch of this year's (2009) FCSFF. A big change in this year's fest will be the addition of the word "FREE" to all facets of festivities and admissions. Also the involvement of philanthropy should bolster some goodwill towards man and sea.

Call for Entries is coming. The focus of this year's fest will be on short films and animations.
