Orca Surf

I know, I know. It's almost Christmas, I should be posting about snow and all my plans for the season. But I'm not. I didn't get over to Vancouver Island this fall for my surf pilgrimage so I've been fairly obsessed with waves lately. Last month these pics of orcas surfing in NZ got uploaded to the interwebs.

Photos by Michael Cunningham. More pics here.
They reminded me that I had some video from an NZ trip of an orca doing the same. Well not quite the same. This recent session had much better waves. I had been meaning to dig out that old miniDV tape and digitize it for a while. So here it is.
Hope you're all getting some waves (frozen or otherwise) wherever you are.

Sierra Mag

Sierra Magazine's Nov/Dec issue has Melissa Larsen's story about our Tantalus trip from last season. Dan Milner's shot of the boys hiking made the cover.

Too bad the trip didn't make the final cut of Deeper. Look for it in the dvd extras?
See you in Whistler at Millenium Place Friday night.

Mexican waves & beers. I think Taylor Steele just made the perfect beer commercial.
This one's for Tom.

Deeper Screenings

The movie is finished and ready to tour. I saw a rough cut about a month back - it's going to be great. Can't wait to see it on the big screen. Definitely check it out when it comes through your neighborhood.

Check TGR's website for the latest tour info.
