THE CROWD by JW Kaiser How many times have you seen the extended swell forecast on Monday morning, and see waves for Thursday, and now that’s all you think about for the next few days?

LIVING WATER: Shaped

LIVING WATER: Mysteries of Faith and Sea

By | 2017-10-30T05:48:27+00:00 October 30th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Mysteries of Faith and Sea  - by JW Kaiser Where do good waves come from?  The quick answer is wind from storms from far away. But how does that even work? Seems hard to fathom how a storm off of Africa or Antarctica could make their way across great oceans to come slamming to a [...]
