So blessed to answer the phone each summer and hear accents from around the world. This crew is awesome! I hope the girl groms in the background are taking notes. Pictured from left to right: Sarah Beardmore, Bec Woods, Kim Mayer, Chelsea Williams, Paige Hareb, and Jenna Balester.

Throwback Thursday with Julie Cox and an Explosion of Light

Rolling back seven years and as we were driving back down the coast from one of Julie’s favorite secret spots, we passed Malibu and saw a few lines breaking on a glassy, moonless night. I had just picked up my first flash housing and unfortunately, my novice skills resulted in a backscatter of lights on all the photos. Mistakes aside, it’s Throwback Thursday so here you go. Julie Cox, First Point Malibu.

Few longboarders I’ve ever seen can cross-step to the nose as quickly and smoothly as 2004 World Champion, Summer Romero. And I love to watch her surf. While getting ready for the upcoming ASP event in China, Summer did something unexpected…she pulled out her new shortboard for some shredding. I’m partial to Fall and this shot shows why…sunshine, clean conditions and fun rights at my favorite spot. Everything was perfect except I was standing on the beach while everyone else was in the water :P -Chris Grant

Her eyes reflect the sadness of the loss of a loved one along with the wisdom of someone who has had to keep walking through a painful stretch of time. Yet her heart beats strong, so strong …and she’s as sweet and as real today as the day I met her years ago. She hasn’t been in the water for months but her surfing is as fresh and powerful as ever. Surfing may be written off by some as a frivolous activity but for those of us that call ourselves surfers, regular doses of saltwater are as vital to life as the very air we breathe. Welcome home Alexa. Seeing you throw spray again made my day!

Dear Surf Industry,

You missed one.

The girl on the virtually sticker-less purple board is one of the best surfers I’ve ever seen. If you don’t believe me, believe the legendary Jay Adams who I could hear whistling loudly after the first wave of her session featured a huge hook, a fins-free blast, a clean roundhouse, and a solid frontside air.

Next time you’re calculating budgets and going over pie charts for your lifestyle surfers, perhaps you can carve out a slice for a surfer who actually blows minds instead of kisses.

Sincerely,

A fan of Dimity Stoyle
