After a little storm Saturday night, Tinch and I met up with Keith for a little session at Matanzas. Keith had some new trunks from es-cent-ial that he wanted Tinch to test out, so here are the photos that he was able to snap. Always a rad session with these two!
After surfing for five hours today, Keith and I decided we wanted to trade off turns snapping some photos of each other in some freight training shore break. It was really rad, and Keith killed it. Got a sick ten, a bunch of 5's, and just overall really nice sliding... Then we traded. Keith was able to snap some epic photos for 5 minutes...and then the battery died. Ohh well. The good surfer was actually capured doing his thing! I wish Tinch was still there for the photos too, but he had to leave early. Next time Tinch... next time! Anyways, here are the photos, Enjoy!

I drove down to Matansas this morning to meet up with my good buddies Keith Novosel and Tinch to slide the last remaining bump from the swell. What was supposed to be a regular session, soon turned into a full on marathon. We surfed for over five hours. But more on that later.
Ive wanted to surf an Almond board for a long time now. I really love what the guys are doing over there. Super rad stuff that is getting put out. But today was my first time sliding one of their logs... It is Keith's personal log. Its 9'10" and I don't really know the rest of the dimensions, but it is super knifed out, pinched rails, but still with some weight to it. It was really fun to ride. I wish I could have gotten to ride it on a bigger or steeper day because this thing really locks in and just gets into trim really nicely. Great board for sure. Now I can officially say that they work just as well as they look.
