The New Zealand surf periodical, Slide Magazine is now available in the USA.
The new editor Ryan Smith convinced me to write an article about the AB3 and Fish Fry events over the last few years.
The auto focus on my digital camera is dying so you can’t read the article off the photo. It doesn’t matter anyway because I wrote the article at 3 o’clock in the morning so it’s full of factual errors and rumors and lies.
This issue of Slide is also noteworthy because it features my very first Surfy Surfy print ad ever.
As soon as this puppy hits the newstands I’m just going to sit back and watch my hit counter go up and up.

Moonlight Remora’d our way onto the coveted back cover Quiksilver ad of the new issue of The Surfer’s Journal. Trust us, we are surprised as anyone. People have been emailing and calling asking about the board and it’s unusual stringers. It’s a board shaped by the creative and talented Fly Van Swae that we glassed back in 2006, similar to this one. Not sure why it’s there expect maybe my theory that groovy surfboards are the foundation of the massive surf industry complex is true. Hopefully our glass job will create a groundswell of retail sales, revive the consumer economy and end the recession.
