Baby Handplane in Action!




Af took the baby handplane out yesterday somewhere with macking punchy beachbreak barrels deep in SD county!
He reported having the time of his life while getting thrashed.
Handplanes mean business! Watch out for dem guys!
The set-up looks great: HD Go Pro mounted to the 14" baby handplane. Slotted in barrels only the best can achieve. LOVE this footage. Only more to come. Addiction.


Sick, sick, sick.


Slotted and frothy
Here's the handplane + Go Pro setup. Want one? E-mail Me: whitneyl33@hotmail.com

Bird Shed Movie

Went to Bird's Surf Shed in San Diego on Sunday for a surf flick called Manufacturing Stoke. I was in awe for the entire time and my eyes never became tired because hundreds of boards lined the walls and ceiling. He's got an incredible collection!! If you ever want an afternoon adventure, go check em out:
Bird's Surf Blog in SD

Also, I met up with a new friend, Ed from Enjoy Handplanes. Enjoy Handplanes Was very stoked to meet one of the people behind Enjoy because I was inspired to make a hand plane last Winter.

Really stoked.

San O Camping!

Went camping at San O this weekend with my Sways friends.
And to top it all off, we had a siiiick South swell that occupied most of my time.
Great times, amazing food and drinks. Love talking surf and surfboards.
Outdoor cooking is one of my strengths! Af's swordfish was bomb.
Found this beautiful rock & we took it home.

Yoga baby!

The waves have been a little small but fun lately but today we've got a bit of eddy so I opted out of a surf and went to Bikram yoga.
Although I practice yoga almost every day at home, there's something about attending a hot yoga class. There's muscles throughout the body that you would never know you had! It helps immensely with surfing. My goal is to become an instructor once I have a little time to take the certification class.

Still thinking about the past weekend--had a beautiful mother's day. We made these delicious fresh blueberry pancakes, chocolate dipped strawberries, and of course mimosas!!

This Saturday is my birthday!! Over the hill, that's for sure. Haha.
So stay tuned for a wild celebration. As for now, dream of Mexico....
