We’ll let CNN explain why Rebekah Brooks was arrested today in London, but allow us to point out how she looks exactly like Olympic gold medalist Shaun White.
My buddy Stephen wears cool t-shirts. But this t-shirt is rad! Check out how the design was printed so that it extends onto the neck of the shirt. That’s what takes a t-shirt from being cool to being rad.

I say it. There are times when I’m the only person on the bus when my stop comes up. On certain occasions I put my bike on the rack and walk out the front door to take it down. Situations occur when it’s completely appropriate and courteous to acknowledge the bus driver with a “thank you.”
But what’s with the people who throw out a “thank you driver” all the way from the back door, attempting to acknowledge the driver who’s 20 passengers deep at the front of the bus? I’ve never heard a bus driver try and shout back “you’re welcome”.
This bizarrely polite situation occurs fairly often on MUNI buses in San Francisco. Is this happening on buses in other cities?

Everything is bigger in Texas…including Chicago hot dogs. If you are ever at The Ballpark in Arlington, make sure to get yourself a Chicago dog, but make sure to only get one. Luckily the lady at the concession stand scoffed at me when I asked for two, though I still refused the fork and knife.

Grain Surfboards is leaving Maine for a short period of time this Fall to visit San Francisco and host their first “traveling” wooden surfboard building workshop. The guys at Grain teamed up with San Francisco Surfrider and Sustainable Surf to put on the weeklong class, taking place September 25-October 1 at the Engine Company #33 Firehouse in Oceanview.
York Maine is a long way to come for a lot of people, so a few years ago we started thinking about taking our show on the road. Thanks to some friends on the west coast, we’re going to hold our first Traveling Workshop in the fabled City by the Bay.
I’ve already made two wooden surfboards using the kits Grain sells online, and both boards came out looking amazing, not to mention the pride you feel from being able to make a surfboard out of wood.
The workshop isn’t cheap – tuition for the weeklong class is $1,975 – but the cost of all the woodworking tools and supplies that were needed to build my first two boards was far from free. I also had to call Grain’s shop more than a few times with questions.
They’re a good group of guys at Grain, and you can visit their classes page for more details about the upcoming San Francisco workshop. Also checkout the west coast workshop post on SustainableSurf.org.
