Tim let me fix-up a couple of his boards as he was gutting a conversion van for a x-country surf trip. I don’t know what Vanpire Weekend means, but it is the name of his blog documenting the journey. Never sure how these journey-blogs turn out, but this one might be worth checking in on. Missed deadlines, nearly-severed fingers, non-surfing girlfriend, and one tiny dog.
Film takes longer than digital.
Sierra Club organized a “Anti-Oil Spill” protest thingy at the East End beach in Portland, and contacted Nanci from Aquaholics to represent the Maine surfing community. MPBN coverage here. Portland Press here and here. Channels 8 and 6 were there, but I haven’t found their coverage yet. I took some photos here.
Nanci brought down a bunch of SUP’s, and a few of us paddled out to Fort Gorges after. I brought my Holga for the journey, if anything comes from that roll, I will post soon.
My good friend Nanci, owner of Aquaholics Surf Shop, recently held her Moms Morning free surf clinic at Higgins. I was asked to take some photographs for a local weekly magazines’ “Summer Guide” issue.
This ain’t no dainty ladies club, they go out most of the winter, except for Nanci’s yearly Costa Rica sojourn, and don’t let the occasional bloody nose slow anybody down. More images here.
I have been developing my stash of forgotten film. Rolls unprocessed for years, in a black box, in my darkroom.
Apparently I took my Holga out surfing. The Holga is barely light-proof, much less water-proof. And I have no memory of doing this, I don’t know how I got the camera out there. But it does explain why my Holga is so rusty. More images here.
