Went fishing with Scott Saylor yesterday in Atlanta. Scott always out fishes me. But not an Monday, May 30th 2009.

Ended up Tied catching 4 total, 2 each!
This pic is Actually Scotts fish. With the cold weather scott thought we wouldnt do too good, so when he caught the first fish I took a photo for insurance. Ended up not needing it. Scott took it easy on me an even let me cast first into the most promising holes.
Fishing sure is great.

Snowboarder Profile:Nick Diachun

Meet Nick Diachun

Nick is somebody else who gets to ride with me. If you believe like i do that the best snowboarder in the world is the one having the most fun, Nick is world champ. He sometimes wears a one piece that i am jealous of and when he wear it i call him the trash man. Nick snowboarded for a week then became a snowboard instructor.

Local Salt Lake City Man Discovers New Electronic Device

Local Techie Chester Frantz, seen here in this file photo, has recently discovered a new electronic device that he claims should be very popular.

"Being on the cutting edge of technology, I like to stay abreast of what is happening in the consumer electronic world. I was at Costco when i saw this music playing device called an "Ipod" upon further investigation it appeared that this portable electronic device holds a large quantity of music" exclaimed Chester. Chester then went on to predict "Apple should have much success with their latest invention."

Picture below is a "Ipod"

Snowboarder profile: Bill Novak

I told Billy to give me "import automobile magazine girl on the hood sexy" and after falling off the truck to the left 5 times, this is the "magic" the camera captured.

Here is a video of my friend Billy. To say he rides a lot is an understatement. He rides more than anyone i know. Often times I go with. I like the way he rides because he doesn't take too long eye balling stuff and has got a lot of surf style and power. Many of his lines remind me of creek kayaking. If Billy says there arn't too many rocks (i hate hitting rocks) I take that to mean that the slope is 50% rocks and 50% snow. It is very common for him to wake up at 5:00am go for a tour (headlamp), go to work @ 8:30 am at the resort, get a couple of quick ridge hikes in for lunch break, work till 5:00 pm and do something similar the next day. We have been on a few surf trips together. (el salv, costa, baja) He use to be master of the third world dirt bag surf trip ($3 day) but has since raised the stakes ($50 day)

Poor man's tuning bench

I think this set up cost me $3.00 A trash can makes an excellent bench as wax scrapings go right in. A $1 light switch makes for a ok scraper and a $2.00 thrift shop iron melts the wax. You are gonna win any races, but if you wax every once in a while and buy boards with good bases, you are gonna go faster than your buddies.

Have You Ever?

Have you ever pinched your sun visor on the outside of your car while rolling up your window only to have your garage door opener fall off onto an on ramp, back up the car to get it, watch the opener get run over by a car, collect most the pieces, bring it home, find out a piece or two is is missing, and fix the opener with a bobby pin and some electrical tape?

Yea me too!
