Four Weekend Warrior sessions are now up.

New title image taken last Wednesday in the North County by Alex, who just sold his board that was in the classifieds. A new classified for this week is by Stephen, who is trying to sell a plot of land in Fiji for $28k.

The San Luis Tribune has several articles about yesterdays fatal shark attack in Avila. 1 2 and 3. Also, our great fear generating media has whipped up this quick article on how to avoid shark attacks.

Nat fills us in on this possible shark attack at Avila Beach near SLO today.

Also, there is a virus out today that "will then send itself out to names found in the victim's address book and will use one of these names to forge a return address." So if you came to this page wondering why I sent you an email...I didn't, someone that has both of us in their address book did but it appears to come from me. Thanks for stopping by anyway.

Lots of Surf Reports coming soon....

If you look closely you can see Ian, a Santa Barbara native temporarly locked in Illinois, dawn patrolling at Whiting, Indiana on Lake Michigan this last week.

New Reports for Monday and Tuesday in Goleta.

You can demo Future Fins at Emma Wood this saturday. Show up, and get to ride boards equipped with Future Fins.

Also, I came across this sick picture of Ventura on Thanksgiving Day, 2002. I remember Thanksgiving day of 2001 being entirely epic, but my 2002 Thanksgiving did not look this awesome. Looking forward to Thanksgiving 2003... unless we can get squeeze in some Hurricane action these next 2 months.

New Report from a Flat Saturday.

Guillermo was downgraded to a Depression but Hilda is still a Tropical Storm. Almost the middle of August and not one Hurricane yet.

Jack Johnson and Ben Harper were in town for two shows at the Santa Barbara Bowl this weekend. Pope and crew got a chance to check out the show on Saturday and were simply blown away. Jack is simply just packed with talent, being a brilliant lyricist and creative guitarist, who humbly shows respect for the people he deals with, and lives a life most could learn from. Ben blew me away by his variety of styles and instruments along with his vocal range. Both of these guys are first class when it comes to the respect they have for people, and the vibe they put off. I can't say the same for the crowd. I have no idea where half of those pretty people came from. They must have bussed them all in from some farm, where the women are issued a cell phone, crop top, and the goods to fill them with, and the men are issued an attitude. Regardless, those lads put on a spectacular performance and I hope they come around again someday.

TD-7E was upgraded to Tropical Storm Guillermo at 8pm last night. It looks like He is falling apart a bit, but we'll have to wait until 8pm to see what the NHC interperts. The good news is there is another area of "disturbances" to the south of Guillermo, so perhaps if Guillermo falls apart it'll feed a new system.

If you liked or hated "Dogtown and Z boyz" you may like or hate Don's new video, a parody on the Dogtown craze.

Also, Perry wants you know about the Peaceful Waveriders Alliance, which is having an Unity Paddle in Santa Cruz on August 24.

A new Tropical Depression has formed 600 miles SW of Baja that may turn into a Tropical Storm but isn't expected to ramp up much.

Kevin told me that half the time he tries to load Santa Barbara Surfing he's getting a "Page Not Found" Error. That's news to me since ever since SBS moved to Jonah's new server I haven't seen a problem. Please let Pope know if you've had troubles.

The Ventura Point Cam is back up again.

Although a south swell came in, pope was out of town, so no new reports on this site.

However, there is a new classifieds section up now. If you don't want to fork over 20% consigment fees for a shop to sell your board just drop me a line with all the info and I'll put it on up. Our first board is a nice 6'6" Patagonia Epoxy shaped by Dave Johnson for $250.
