GroundWave Video

The genesis for this project is local. The Union Express video captures a pair of surfers traveling the coastline of California from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back. The premise is anyone can do this, the trip is cost effective, and there is a story around every corner. Enjoy.

Live to surf, surf to live.

P.S. Still getting worked on the inside near beach break however I paddled into a reform wave that shaped up into a juicy right north of Pismo Pier. My session summed up as good exercise both cardiovascular and anaerobic.


I removed my Rip Curl 4×3 wetsuit from storage and discovered some serious funk growth since my last session. My sabbatical from surfing was more of a sabbatical from physical fitness in general. I was seriously burnt out from my military years in the Air Force however something happened between then and now.

It’s called middle age and those calories do not burn away like those invincible years of youth. My waist line has grown substantially since the days of the battle dress uniform. Likewise, I have things to consider like blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and relaxation.

I have surfed up and down the central coast of California although age brings on a different perspective. The urge to chase big waves has since retired itself instead I’m looking for the soulful, don’t harsh my mellow, surfing experience. Relaxation out in the ocean searching for the perfect Old Man wave is the goal.

I’m introducing GroundWave with further copy to follow at Jeff, K1NSS’s DashToons as well.

I want to promote in addition to ham radio, a healthy lifestyle, and surfing is a perfect fit at achieving this goal. Afterall, blogging is a personal journal, one that is shared with a community of friends. I hope you will enjoy the life and times of a middle aged surfer who happens to love ham radio.

Surf to live, live to surf.

P.S. The serious funky mold was cleaned from the wetsuit including my rash guard and booties as seen in photograph number two.
