Made with love, on a sunny day at Holly Park, San Francisco, California.

Can a photo make a surf spot look better then it really is?
Ever since my brother moved to San Francisco I’ve wanted to surf Fort Point. With the Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop, every picture looks unreal to me. You’ve got a wave that breaks in the bay, essentially, and hoards of tourists gathering around along the parking lot and above you on the bridge looking down. It makes me wish that Fort Point would break during every trip I made out west…
Doug has surfed Fort Point and tells me it’s not really worth it. It can be a pain to get out, when it’s good it’s crowded (duh), and the crowd isn’t necessarily all that friendly. He also says it only really breaks when there’s a huge swell pounding the coast.
I’ve seen it break once, and it was waste high with what looked like one of the easiest paddle outs. The photos and the spot both seem good and worth it to me.

They have dogs for transportation. Duh!
I watched this guy do a couple laps with his dog in the Panhandle today. It was funny to watch considering how busy the park was with joggers and bicyclists jockeying for room on the path, but then I also felt bad because I’m guessing the dog was undernourished and probably shouldn’t have been pulling anyone.

I’ve drank DRIP’D coffee and surfed Grain surfboards, so I can vouch for both of these products. The world would most likely be a better place with more of each in it. Here are a couple cool businesses to get behind…
DRIP’D Coffee Lab | San Francisco, Calif.
Purveyors of finde coffee drinks, DRIP’D Coffee, says:
“In a city that hosts many exceptional coffee experiences, we think there’s more to bring coffee lovers and/or anyone seeking the highest-quality ingredients. So with DRIP’D, we’re offering the best local coffee courtesy of Sightglass Coffee, local organic whole milk and even certified raw milk in the future. We’re already working out the details to work with a local bean-to-bar chocolate company, as well as deliver some amazing local treats.”
Grain Surfboards | York, Maine
Purveyors of fine wood surfbaords, Grain Surfboards, says:
“So our plan is this: with your help, we’ll get a truck we can sleep in, and a utility trailer large enough to fit piles of tools, shaping stands, and gear, and we’ll hit the road out west. Your funding assistance will also help outfit this rig – for instance, we’ll need some mobile shop-tools, and other stuff classes require. If things work out, we’ll set this up to burn alternative fuels as well.”

Some people want to shut down Bacon Bacon, but now there’s a petition to show how many people love Bacon Bacon and want it around. Take a moment to support small local business and sign the petition to keep Bacon Bacon right where it is (which technically is Frederick Knob, but that’s not totally important).

Saw Sunset Shapers tweet this out today. Small wave tow-in surfing would be perfect for Long Island and San Francisco summers. I think a clam boat could generate enough speed to get into an ankle sized wave at Gilgo Beach come mid-July. A Zodiac would be good for Ocean Beach (brave driver needed). Rad vid Parko.
