    On a warm summer's night under a star-lit sky, I'm not sure that there is anything more amazing than being at the Irvine Bowl and watching the Pageant of the Masters. I have gone for the last five years, and with each passing year I grow more amazed by...
  • Surfing Soapbox: Dangers of drug use seen firsthand

    This poem, "If I Could Race Back In Time," is meant to be a talking point and is about all of us and the consequences of making poor choices in our lives. These choices have sometimes led to drug use, ultimately leading to prison and death for some of...
  • Surfing Soapbox: Where in the world is Kelly Slater?

    With two surfing superstars missing from this year's Billabong Pro at Jeffreys Bay in South Africa and a rather small wave forecast, one has to wonder if we are seeing the future of the ASP World Tour. Well, let me rephrase that. One surfing superstar...
