Surfing Mexico

Conner Erwin and I scored the giant north west swell hitting California this week. On Wednesday we headed south to a point just north of Ensenada…fun surf and definately smaller than San Diegos unmanagable (for me)25ft to 35ft surf. Check out the picture below….
The San Diego surf reports are still calling for good swell throughout the week and into next week.

American Corporate LIfe

Interesting observation on American corporate life:
The sport of choice for the urban poor is basketball.
The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is bowling.
The sport of choice for front-line workers is football.
The sport of choice for supervisors is baseball.
The sport of choice for middle management is tennis.
The sport of choice for corporate officers is golf.
Conclusion: The higher you are in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls.

hmmmmm….I don’t see surfing in there anywhere. Anyone have a conclusion on that?

Perhaps, the higher you are in the corporate structure, the Bigger your surfboard?

This entry has no real point…so please stop reading it. I simply would like to tell all 3 visitors a day that I need to go surfing. This weekend looks like my best bet. San Diego is expected to have a small to moderate North West swell…which means, as long as the wind cooperate, waiste to chest high waves…and lots of people. Regardless…surf surf surf ;-)

Las Vegas Hotel

I read the reviews for this Las Vegas Hotel because it had really cheap rooms…and I mean really cheap. A normal room on a Monday night costs $16. I know the reviews would be classic…but read for yourself.
