Man...they closed the schools because of rain? What a messy situation we came home too. They are actually calling this the Flood of 06. Is the weather going crazy or is it me? Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Earthquakes, floods...maybe God really is upset with us. I know he'd be upset if you guys forgot that yesterday was Mother's Day. I hope you called your Moms, sent cards and or flowers, took her out to brunch, and just basically did something nice for your Mom. I know some of you recently lost your Mom in the last few years. So, I hope you thought about all the good times you shared with your Mom. My mother has been real sick as of late and she had to deal with the flood on top of everything else. Thank God, my brother was there for her, pumping out the basement for days.
I know there are plenty of new Moms out there as well. Heather, Natasha and a bunch of other Surf Moms. I REALLY hope you enjoyed this First Official Mother's Day. All you Surf Moms are the best. Driving those Groms to and from the beach. Putting up with all that sand in the vehicles and smelly wet wetsuits. You're giving those Soccer Moms a run for their money.
So once again, Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms. (and Aunts too!)
this rain came surf.
Cold messy surf. But surf is surf and we'll take it any way we can.
Besides, who cares if it's raining? You're gonna get wet, no matter
what the weather is doing. Unless you never fall, or have to duck dive.
just heard on the news that Doug Flutie has Retired. He was quite
an athlete in his day, and he surely made his mark in the world of Sports.
The Hail Mary Pass will forever be synonymous with his name.
Thanks for the memories Little Big Man.
1918- Alex DeConstant's Grandmother at Hampton Beach
This a very old photo of local Surfer Alex Deconstant's Grandmother at Hampton Beach. Think that young boy had his eyes on the surf back then? Maybe, it's hard to tell what anyone thought of the Surf back in those days. But if I had to guess, they were mesmerized by the waves, much like any Ocean loving human would be. But those Bathing Suits? I dig em! Photo courtesy of Alex Deconstant
Today 2006 Friday of last week...Casey On The Launching Pad
This was the end of one of Casey Lockwood's BEST waves in New Jersey. Right after this photo was snapped, he launched it straight up into the vortex and landed in a collapsing wall of of whitewater. The beach roared. The judges scored...Photo by SFOD R. Fatello

Parting Shot 2006 Surf Art Revisited...
This is a very cool painting that can only really be appreciated when you get these boards together.
Otherwise, it would be hard to figure out what was going on. Painting by Tom Gardner.
