Sterling Hayden, "Wanderer", 1964

To what avail the plough or sail, or love, or even life-if freedom fails? 
Freedom. Freedom to what? Escape, to run, to wander, turning your back on a coward society that stutters, staggers, and stagnates every man for himself and FUCK YOU Jack I've got mine?
      To be truly challenging, a voyage, like life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen, who play in their boats at sea-"cruising" it is called. Voyaging belongs to sea men, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot or will not fit in. 
      Little has been said or written about the ways a man may blast himself free. Why? I don't know, unless the answer lies in our valued diseased values...Men are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of "security", and in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine-and before we know it our lives are gone. 
     What does a man really need-really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down-and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment and contribution. Thats all-in the material sense. But we are brainwashed by our economic sense until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of tim payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention from the sheer idiocy of the charade. 
     And the years thunder by. The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it, the tomb is sealed. 
    Dedication to the sea is the symbol of migration and movement and wandering. It is the barbaric place and it stands opposed to society and it is a constant symbol in all of literature too. 
     As Thomas Wolfe said, "It is the state of barbaric disorder out of which civilization has emerged and into which it is liable to return" 

Sometimes you read the perfect thing, at the perfect time. It scares you, it enlightens you...
it awakens something. 
We often say, "who know's" 
No one knows, absolutely no one has any idea what they are doing. And those that do, I'm sorry

Staycation-Thanks Chris

The Trail

The Camp

Thanks for the day off you flaming asshole Chris C. 

The Trail changes tones


The Arena

The Fire

Was it a dream...

..because it doesn't seem to end...

and we are glad that we are awake and dreaming

This Columbus day, Dorybeach beat the heat, and the hordes of aggro extreme bro's swarming the high performance breaks, and took a step back in history to the sand shores of San Onofre State Beach. "Full of fatso's and wanna's" Miki Dora once said, and that's just fine with us because that day, we caught about a hundred fun head high point-break waves, slept in a hammock, drank a good her and shared a few with many a fine human over a warm fire, and avoided the black plague.

Southern Sunrise 5:33am

1 : 11:34 am (we got out from session #2)

Awaking from a sun-induced Siesta...we are unsure if we were just seemed too perfect, and appropriate

4:00 pm We find peace amongst chaos

4:04 pm we are momentarily interrupted by literal hell on wheels

5:20 pm we decide the noodle arms are cooked, and turn to burn

...time not important
we eat churros

You live your search, and we will live our's
Up early, out there, back late
Hope to see you out there

Sunday was Runday. Monday was Funday. Wait?

Have you ever had a moment, where you have a new lease, a moment that despite every possible event's best efforts, your excited about the opportunity b/c your free to have no fucking idea what's about to coming next

We're not ok. But we will be. 

We're gonna get more stickers soon. Look Out. You might get 1.

New Day's, New Way's

When the world grants you a pie, 
eat that shit until someone takes it away. 
Friday, sun-up to sun-down, 
behind the curtain
Right here in town. 
Bigger and "better" the day's before
more fun was had
with a group of new familiar faces
trading short lines into good sized arcs
Thanks Marie

_+ Schaffer / Lowers +_

With Friday upon us and a good South in the water,
it's only appropriate to throw up some new surf smut
from our friend & colleague, Ricky Schaffer.
We're praying to surf on this level when we reach his age...
Keep shredding and check out his new company, GROM Manufacturing

Standby : Birthday Trips

For a recent birthday, Dorybeach decided to hop on standby w/ the assistance and of course company of a fine lady. and see where they wound up! 
They wound up in Oahu, Hawaii
A bit torn on how to feel about Hawaii, and seeing it as possibly a new love or possibly just a bucket list experience check off...
It was an incredible experience, and yet again, we were presented with a "pleasantly surprised" traveling experience, and one that we cannot wait to repeat again. 

Was really cool to see the Duke statue and the reverence even the locals who see it every day pay to it
The beginnings

And this was a less expensive on... Mahalo...pshhh

Line Up Marker
You should be praying if your out there

Waimea Bay looks different in the summer

No 100 point rides today

understatements of the year

Its was called a star puffy
it was fluffy and sugary and mouthgasmic


Playing on the reef at Pipe, checking it out, I surfaced to find myself joined by a massive sea turtle

Middle East side lookout find

"There's a hole in that island"
There was a story told about how each of these small island out off the point was from a piece of a head that an ancient god cut off and them up and threw in the ocean

not a big food blog by any means, 
but this was worth it
