Dry in no time

If you haven't seen/heard of the Hangair, you may want to give it a look. If one of your main reasons for buying wetsuits is to have one ready to go when your others are wet, this can save you a few bucks. Works for me!

Thanks Hayley...

...for a great site. Check out the Surfing Handbook by Hayley. All you need to know, without the annoying ego / attitude you get from some "experts."

Plus a change...

Found this article about etiquette at Malibu. Interesting comments on how things have always been like this...still plan to make it up there sometime (maybe this summer).

This is the first posting in my blog. I thought I would set this up to record my impressions on my first year of surfing, and I named the site Winter Surfer (真冬のサーファー in Japanese) because starting out last summer, I couldn't understand why anyone would brave the cold just to surf. Well, I got hooked, and with a winter of surfing under my belt, I feel like I can still reach back to my very beginning days and talk with somewhat of a voice of experience. Surfing has been a great sport for me, but it is full of quirkiness, so I thought I would use this site as a way to capture some of what I've experienced.
