Stolen Paipo at Moonlight Beach in San Diego County

Some dropkick liberated my very good friend of his brand-new custom handmade Wegener Stokamoto paipo, made from paulownia wood. The rip-off happened a couple of weeks ago at Moonlight Beach in San Diego County. He was right by it, but his back was turned while he was getting into his wetsuit. He pai...

Re: River surfing:Setting the record straight.

I appreciate all these ideas, bgreen. The article I'm writing is not intended to be a comprehensive description of river surfing history; rather I hope to celebrate those who went first, insofar as we know.

I am researching for an article I am writing about riv...
