Part 3:  Walk on Water .....

Progress slowly continues on the quest for cross stepping and nose riding.  I've included the you tube links here for Part 1 and Part 2 as a measure.  Part 3 is more cross stepping than nose riding......

I'm still sticking to my plan of a total of 4 vid's to document my progress. My goal is for Part 4 to be true noseriding!  I couldn't help myself putting in the snippet of the quasi move...still cracks me up. Gotta love the cameo too...   :)

Sadly, I heard that Dick Dale has passed.....I had the opportunity to meet him a couple of times over the years and always enjoyed jabbering and talking guitars and music.  I had him sign my Fender Strat back in the late 90's and I'll always treasure of the first things I always play when I pick it up and start noodling is the intro to Miserlou.   


Will definitely be playing some of his tunes tonight....Volume to the sweet spot (~7.5) and Reverb to 10 on the Deluxe Reverb.

RIP Dick.....and Thank You for all the great music: Miserlou, Surf Beat, Nitro, The Wedge, Esperanza, to name just a few.

NIIIIICE!!!!!  Yep, Cod, patatoes, friends and waves.... and some sangria.....nighty nite!!!  PERFECT Day!!!!!!!!   :D ;D 8) 8) ::)

LBSUP:  Really liked that!  I had the same thing here in the northeast yesterday as well.  It was me and three proners trading off and on on nearly identical conditions to ring in St Paddy's day.  Super fun......lots of cross-stepping and just goofing around.

Thanks for sharing....its just about having fun and resetting via Momma Ocean!

That was fun Creeker! Loved seeing the country to and fro The Wall.  Waves beyond my pay grades of sure!

Say, what was on the serving tray?  Looked like oranges and ??? I think I'd be in for one powerful nap after the el humongo sangria!   ::)

Continued fun!!!!!!!

Beautiful work Stoney!!!  Do you have a finished pic of the whale's eye?  Look forward to seeing the finished barreled surfer artwork too!!!!

Hope to catch up soon!

Two weeks and counting till your back stateside Creeker!  I know you'll be coming home with thousands of pics and many hours of video.......look forward to hearing your thoughts on what you'll do with it all.  I'm sure it'll be no easy task unless of course you're gonna vault it (hope not) for future generations(?)   :o

Until then standing by for a another report or two of Portugal, surf, and the peeps.

Really fun day!!!!  Biggie fine tuning the new Smik with some very nice rides!  One of those days were I wished I had taken the time to set up the SS3 but decided to leave it in the truck.   :o. Lots of hoots and howlers for sure and plenty of stoke.

Oh Cookie!  That looked like fun!!!!  Beautiful Wx, sites, waves, music and friends.  Good stuff.

I can't wait to surf again without a hood, gloves, and about 3 months.  :o ;D  But loving the crowds.....rather lack thereof!

Look forward to your SoCal video chapter 2-?

Stoney:  The whale eye is incredible.......WOW!  I wondered what the image would look like if I flipped the image and its very human like....very cool. 

Can't wait to see updates on the barreled surfer!

Your woodworking is VERY impressive...what an awesome hobby!  Love it!

Love the vid Creeker!!!  Very nice blend of surf, sites, and new found friends. 

Pretty spectacular to see that kinds of weather in a place that I've always more or less considered a northern climate area in terms of general world geography.  We'll not have that kind of water and air combo until June!  :o 8) ;D

Have fun!
