Computer slave, random 7/22/14

rc day

ran cars all day.

ran the Tamiya Twin Detonator and the Slash at the park in San Pedro with Max. the Twin lost a screw, but i still had a nice long run. the Slash needs a new motor.

went to El Dorado Park later and met Gabe and the Heli-Crew.
ran the Twin again.
fun!

thats about it.
fun Sunday afternoon.

on the way home we stopped in santa barbara and surfed the point at ledbetter beach. 2′ to 4′ and howling off shore. surfed my 6’8″ zippifish quad. on my last wave in, i pulled out a little too late and caught some of the flat-rock bottom. kinda bummed me out cuz these speed dialer fins are close to $100 a set. the lockbox got damaged as well. guess ill be seeing the guys at the little house of repair next week…

cameo

first of all, Happy Easter and Passover to everyone!

yesterday, we performed for the Cameo Professional Auxiliary of Long Beach, “A Walk on the Wild Side”, at the Long Beach Convention Center. from what i understand, it is an annual fashion show/silent auction that raises money for the Long Beach Unified School District. there were about 1200 people in attendance. we played in the lobby as people arrived, and created a little mood music before the fashion show. below are some random photos of the event:

im gonna post each time i surf, just so i can have a record of my surfing life. i know its a bit boring to some, but thats my life. for me, surfing is one of the most important aspects of my life. it gives me clarity. it keeps my balanced. all i want to do is surf as much as i can…

and even more dancing

this is the first time ive taken photos at one of our performances. as you can tell, my little digital camera is a bit ruff around the edges, but i think it will do.
i intend to take a few photos at each of our shows. i trust my technique will improve over time. its tough to take photos from the band stand while performing! maybe ill try a little video some time in the near future?

tonight we performed for a poolside party at the surf and sand resort in laguna beach, california. we perform at the SnS often, and we always have a good time entertaining for different companies and organizations.
i believe we all had a good time…
