Jettygirl Time Machine - July 30, 2007 - Surf Session with Bec Woods, Kyla Langen, Kim Mayer, Kassia Meador, Rochelle Ballard, Lyndsay Noyes, Violet Kimble, Sarah Beardmore, Megan Abubo, and Claire Bevilacqua Description: We've decided it's time to unlock the video vault and showcase some of the sessions that have gone down in front of our lenses over the years. The video size may be small and standard definition (*glorious 480p, haha) but the spirit of the sessions back then were most definitely high-def, vibrant and in full color. If it hadn't have been for two individuals, Kyla Langen and Kassia Meador, Jettygirl would never have become a reality. At the time, Kyla was living in Carlsbad while Kassia Meador had recently moved to Oceanside. These two homes would become the focal points as some of the best female surfers in the world would stop by and visit during the summers. Each morning I'd wake up to pre-social media text messages and phone calls about how the waves were and where the session was going to happen. It could just be the Oceanside area itself, but I see less and less of these surf sessions where groups of women get together and push the limits at one particular break. All of these surfers were complete individuals but there was enough cohesiveness as a group for people on the beach to feel the energy of women's (shortboard) surfing being pushed forward one ride at a time, even on a junky summer day like the one in this clip. Well, enough chatter on my part. I hope you enjoy the first of many Jettygirl Time Machine surf sessions ...good rides, wipeouts, smiles, and everything else that makes an average day at the beach something special.

(Facebook Post - 2011.11.24) 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.

Throwback Thursday with Alexa Frantz: Her eyes reflect…

Alexa Frantz hits the lip at Scripps, La Jolla, California. Surf photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. 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! * Read comments from the original Jettygirl Facebook post here >>

Danielle Burt: Chapter Two Description: In the summer of 2004 Danielle Burt was involved in a motorcycle accident that left her with collapsed lungs, dozens of broken bones, six weeks in a coma, and ultimately, the loss of her right leg. After a lengthy healing and recovery process, Danielle's heart turned toward the ocean. After gathering some spare parts to create a functional "surf leg," she caught her first waves and was immediately hooked on surfing. Danielle Burt: Chapter Two celebrates an incredibly positive human being, a great surfer, and a hero to virtually everyone she meets.

Photo Friday: Late Afternoon Roundhouse with Lulu Erkeneff. Photos by Chris Grant.

Presented by Jettygirl.com and our generous readers Today it's cold and rainy in Southern California, the type of day that lends itself perfectly to reflecting back to the warm days of summer. Of all the days I shot during that three month span, this session stands out from the rest. With a hungry pack of male world tour competitors scrounging for every wave possible, one girl held her ground and scored at least a dozen high-quality lefts that afternoon. Her name is Lulu Erkeneff. You may or may not know Lulu but due to her homebreak being the photo-friendly Salt Creek, she's quite possibly the most consistently photographed female surfer on the West Coast, a fact I'm sure makes her sponsors quite happy. Whenever I see her surf it trips me out that no major clothing sponsor has signed her yet. While they seem to hand out contracts for daily Instagram bikini shots and slip-slidey surfing these days, the brands are clearly missing a surfer who's not only smart but charges, pulls into barrels, and uses her rail in a manner that would make any power surfer grin. On this particular wave Lulu had two huge snaps out the back and as she approached me the clouds that had been obscuring the sun a moment before parted and her turn was suddenly bathed in beautiful light. While I was a bit too close to her to work much with the composition of the photos, this turn is permanently etched in my mind due to Lulu's clean rail-work and spontaneous smile after rebounding off the foam. While many of today's tricks are played out and forgotten about after the next set has rolled through, the memory of a well-placed roundhouse can stay with you forever. Lulu Erkeneff, Photo Friday.

“Whomp-O-Rama” encuentro con Christine Brailsford. Entrevista y fotos del evento.

Whomp-O-Rama Encuentro con Christine Brailsford - Fotos de Chris Grant / Jettygirl.com
Aun no me puedo recordar donde o cuando fue que por primera vez escuche acerca de los eventos Whop-O-Rama, pero si tuviera que adivinar probablemente diría que fue a través del "PAIPO debote", Glenn Sakamoto de la revista Liquid Salt Magazine. En los 70' recuerdo que tratamos de utilizar nuestras sandalias como "Handplanes" para correr las olas, fuera de esta experiencia no he tenido la oportunidad de experimentar esta modalidad de "Handplanes". Realmente no tengo idea de que esperar de este evento. En el momento en que llegue a la playa en Leucadia, descubrí un gran grupo de personas amantes de la diversión de todas las edades; compartiendo las olas del mar con sus diferentes y muy originales equipos "rides" para una sección que se me hace difícil renombrar. Hace ya un mes de esta dia y aun puedo escuchar las carcajadas de risa y ver las sonrisas de las personas. Si en algún momento descubres uno de estos eventos ya sea por Facebook o en algún otro de los medios, no lo pienses, ya que es garantizado que te divertirás en grande. Para tener una mejor idea de lo que es Whomp-O-Rama, nos encontramos con su propietario Christine Brailsford ( en la siguiente foto) para conocer su opinión del evento. Christine Brailsford, Whomp Handplanes.  Photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Jettygirl: A diferencia de algunas corporaciones que respaldan las demostraciones en la playa (beach demos), los Whomp-O-Rama tienen una forma peculiar, distinta y mucho mas relajada. Durante el evento no se escucho un comentario negativo, ningún mal de ojo, o ambiente hostil en lo absoluto; por el contrario fue muy agradable el poder ver a todas las personas sonriendo, compartiendo las olas y aclamándose los uno a otros. Dígannos un poco mas acerca de este dia. Christine Brailsford: Admito que me encontraba nerviosa unos días previos al evento. Según el reporte del tiempo parecía ser que estaría nublado, sin olas y con vientos en dirección a la costa ( onshore). Con mis dedos cruzados tome la decisión de realizar el evento. En la mañana del evento las condiciones amanecieron perfectas con marea alta, sin viento y un oleaje de 3-5 pies con secciones buenísimas y tubos. Un maravilloso grupo de "whompers" se presento para probar sus tablas, tomar fotos y pasarla bien. Traje algunos "paipos" ( bellyboards) y "handplanes" (tabla de mano) de demostración, para todas las personas presentes. Fue muy agradable ver muchas caras conocidas y nuevas en el agua; surfiando y compartiendo las olas. Durante varias horas nos adueñamos de este punto de la playa- todo el mundo riéndose a carcajadas y apoyándose a gritos los unos otros. Definitivamente fue un dia memorable.

Podemos observar una gran variedad de 'handplanes" con diferentes diseños y formas. Debido a que estos Handplanes son muy pequeños y poseen una reducida área, nos interesa saber si de alguna manera se puede notar la diferencia en los diferentes modelos y formas de estos “handplanes” al correr las olas o si es solo parte de la estética de estos? Usando un handplane puedes coger olas fácilmente y proyectarte en la ola mucho mas rápido. Existen muchas variantes al momento de escoger el “Handplane” apropiado para las diferentes condiciones. El mayor enfoque de mis “Handplanes”, es su flexibilidad. La flexibilidad te permite girar con una mayor naturalidad, como si estuvieras haciendo bodysurfing, sin usar un “handplane”. El diseño de las colas (tails), materiales y forma contribuyen a su flexibilidad. Las diferencias en tamaños trabajan de misma forma que en las tablas de surf. • Las grandes (18″-19″) trabajan bien en olas grandes o en personas de gran tamaño. • Las medianas (14″-15″) trabajan bien en la mayoría de las condiciones y corredores. • Las pequeñas (11″ o menos) son buenas para olas tubulares. También funcionan para los niños. Un Paipo es probablemente el mas veloz artefacto para correr las olas. Es muy parecido a un "Bodyboard" al momento de coger las olas, pero muy distinto en otras cosas. En lugar de flotar sobre la superficie de la ola, estos tienen bordes duros que se entierran en la ola. Esto ayuda a generar velocidad de planeación. Sus bordes actúan como una quilla que te permita controlar los giros en la parte baja de la ola. La parte de abajo de mis Paipos tienen un cóncavo singular y un laminado en la parte superior de la tabla. El tamaño de estos se basa en la estatura, peso y habilidad del corredor. Para las personas que le interese ponerse en contacto con ustedes para ordenar "Handplanes" hechos a mano, cual es el proceso a seguir tomando en cuenta que cada uno de estos es único? Si están interesados en obtener un "Handplane" o un Paipo hecho a la medida o de los que tenemos en inventario nos pueden contactar a través de nuestro correo electrónico at whomphandplanes@gmail.com y para mas información acerca de ordenes, preguntas generales o listas de tiendas locales donde pueden conseguirlos. También pueden echarle un ojo a mis tablas y a mi trabajo, en el portal de la Internet whomphandplanes.tumblr.com. Algún comentario final, o alguna influencia? Quiero agradecer a todos por su apoyo continuo. Estoy muy feliz de poder compartir lo que hago con otras personas. Muchas gracias desde lo mas profundo de mi corazón :).

Whomp-O-Rama Roundup with Christine Brailsford. Interview & Event Photos.

Whomp-O-Rama Roundup with Christine Brailsford - Photos by Chris Grant / Jettygirl.com
I can't recall where or when I first learned of the Whomp-O-Rama event but if I had to guess, it was probably through paipo-devotee, Glenn Sakamoto of Liquid Salt Magazine. I haven't had experience with handplanes other than the rubber flip-flops we used back in the 1970's for the same purpose. I truly didn't know what to expect at the event. Upon arriving at Beacons Beach in Leucadia, I discovered a crew of fun-loving individuals of all ages sharing waves, trying each other's rides, and enjoying a session the likes of which I can't readily recall. It's been about a month since that day and I can still hear the laughter and see the smiles. If you ever see one of these events pop up on Facebook or wherever, take advantage of it. It's a guaranteed fun time! To get the scoop on the Whomp-O-Rama, we met up with Whomp Handplanes owner, Christine Brailsford (pictured below), for her thoughts on the event. Christine Brailsford, Whomp Handplanes.  Photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Jettygirl: Unlike many corporate backed beach demo’s, the Whomp-O-Rama had a distinctly relaxed flavor to it. We didn’t hear one bad comment, see any stink-eye, or witness anyone being vibed in any way. To the contrary, it was a pleasant surprise to see everyone smiling, hooting each other into waves, and even sharing rides. Tell us about the day. Christine Brailsford: I'll admit.. I was nervous for a few days before the event. The forecast looked bleak with no swell, scattered rain, and onshore wind. I decided to still hold the event anyway with my fingers crossed. It was a crisp morning and turned out to be perfect conditions. A super high tide, zero wind, and 3-5 foot swell made fun little pockets and barrels. An awesome group of whompers came to try boards, take photos, and hang out. I brought down some paipos (bellyboards) and handplanes for everyone to demo. It was nice to see so many faces, familiar and new, bobbing around, stoked in the surf and sharing waves. For a few hours, our group took over the break---everyone smiling, laughing, and hooting each other on. It was definitely a memorable day. Whomp-O-Rama with Christine Brailsford. Whomp Handplanes.

Photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl.com. Whomp-O-Rama with Christine Brailsford. Whomp Handplanes. Photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl.com. We saw a variety of shapes and tail designs on handplanes. Due to the small planing surface of a handplane, are the designs purely aesthetic or can you tell a difference between the different tails and outlines when riding a wave? Using a handplane allows you to catch waves easier and plane down the line faster. There are many variables when choosing the right handplane for the right conditions. The main focus with my designs is flex. Flex allows the board to twist for a more natural feeling, like bodysurfing without a handplane. The design of the tails and foil contribute to this flex function. The different size models work similar to different sizes of surfboards: • Larger planes (18"-19") work well in softer surf or for bigger riders. • Medium planes (14"-15") are great all around boards for most conditions and riders. • Small planes (11" and below) are good for hollower waves. They're also great for kids and hobbits. A paipo is probably the fastest wave riding craft. Catching a wave is much like a bodyboard, but very different in other ways. Instead of floating on the surface of the wave, the rail edge is hard and buried in the wave. This creates ultimate planing speed. The tapered rail acts as a "fin", allowing controlled bottom turns. The bottom of my paipos have a single concave and rolled hull nose entry. The size of the paipos are based on the height, weight, and ability of its rider. If someone wanted to get in touch with you to have a handplane shaped, what is the process like since each one is so unique? If you are interested in a custom or stock handplane or paipo, you can contact me via email at whomphandplanes@gmail.com for ordering information, general questions, or for a list of local retailers. You can also check out my boards and work on my photo blog at whomphandplanes.tumblr.com. Any parting thoughts, influences, or shout-outs? I want to thank everyone for their continued support. I'm stoked to be able to share what I do with others. Thank you from the bottom of my heart :). Whomp-O-Rama with Christine Brailsford. Whomp Handplanes.

Single Wave Thursday with Silvana Lima. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing.

Silvana Lima is the only person we've ever seen that other surfers, both guys and girls, get out of the water to watch her surf. On this day in Southern California, the Brazilian surfer lit up the place with huge frontside snaps and creative frontside airs. Although injured throughout the majority of 2012, we have our fingers crossed that Silvana will be back in the water turning heads in 2013. Single Wave Thursday.

Dimity Stoyle. Frontside air. Surf photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Dimity Stoyle - Photo: Chris Grant / Jettygirl.com 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
Kamalehua Keohokapu. Smiles and aloha. Surf photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Kamalehua Keohokapu - Photo: Chris Grant / Jettygirl.com When surfing is broken down to its simplest form, the common denominator we all share is that it's fun, pure fun. Facing an onshore closeout, this happy Hawaiian chucked her board up and jumped over the falls with an aloha-filled smile that warmed this particular photographer's heart. At this 1/1000th of a second in world history, the true meaning of surfing was never clearer. Kamalehua Keohokapu, surfer.
Courtney Conlogue rips one off the top in San Diego County. Surf photo by Chris Grant, Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Courtney Conlogue - Photo: Chris Grant / Jettygirl.com Today I was able to shoot with one of Transworld SURF's Hottest Girls in Pro Surfing. Had I known of the honor bestowed upon her by making the list, I certainly would have offered my congratulations. Then again, when stacked up against her drive and training for a world title, her amazing painting skills, her deep love of books, her selfless desire to help out with charitable causes, and the absolutely professional way she carries out her duties as an athlete and role model, I don't think the "hottest girl" thing would rank very high on her list of accomplishments. Courtney Conlogue, turning heads in a way that any true surfer can appreciate, by laying down a solid turn on a solid wave.
