For my first bit of bloggage, thought I'd slap up a pic from the 2004 Samoa surf trip. A few months later I was on my way up to Japan to live and life's been very different since. Samoa was a classic trip but a new beginning was on the cards and this blog is basically an attempt to document it. I've got this pic framed up on the wall here at home now and it always brings a smile. Good times.
