Fixing Our Eyes by JW Kaiser Have you ever prayed for waves? Don’t be ashamed. We all have, even though it’s maybe pretty low on the list of important things we could pray about.  What's the deal with prayer anyhow?  I have to admit that prayer is probably the single biggest mystery in my faith [...]

Drawing Near by JW Kaiser What's the longest flat spell you've experienced as a surfer? A month or two? Have you ever moved away from the coast for an extended period of time or, say it ain't so, permanently? As surfers we have an unexplainable pull that draws us to ride waves. If we lose [...]

By | 2018-10-06T00:16:40+00:00 October 6th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Your Forecast by JW Kaiser Surf forecasting has changed surfing in many ways. The obvious ability to somewhat predict when swell and conditions are optimal is more than helpful as we try to fit a surf into our busy lives. However, it has also made us lazy. How many times have you heard, "It was [...]

LIVING WATER: Failing and Singing

By | 2018-09-23T15:10:45+00:00 September 23rd, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

LIVING WATER Failing and Singing by JW Kaiser Recently I was surfing, and because the waves were better than most days and the amount of people out of school and work, there was a large increase in the number of surfers in the water. One particularly friendly guy in the water near me had a [...]

LIVING WATER: New Creations

By | 2018-09-17T03:28:04+00:00 September 17th, 2018|Uncategorized|0 Comments

New Creations by JW Kaiser I have a lot of surfboards but most of them were second-hand or consigned as used. However, after riding a friend's board that I really liked, I did something that I don't usually do. I drove to my local surf shop and bought a new one right off the rack. [...]

That name "legend" has even found a home in our daily vernacular as surfers.  We honor the classic style of those who pioneered trim and flow.  We pay much respect to the ones whose adventures discovered places [...]
