Surf, Bike and RV

Surf, Bike and RV

I finally made it back out to the beach.  We went RVing at Kathryn Abbey Hannah Park in Jacksonville.   And even though I was a little weird-ed out by the brownish, murky water... I surfed for a bit.  The water is already warm and despite having lost some muscle mass this year, I was [...]

Surf Girl Saturdays

Surf Girl Saturdays

I used to have this routine when heading to the beach with my daughter, Taylor.  We'd get up early, say 7:30 on a Saturday.  We'd pack the cooler, throw our beach bags in the trunk and the surfboards on top of the car.  I'd drive us over to our neighborhood Panera Bread for a breakfast [...]

Surfboard Shopping Part 3

You may be familiar with New Smyrna Beach, FL.  It's a cute little beach front town in Central Florida.  It's our little not so hidden treasure.  We go there at least 3 or 4 times a year for surfing and beach time.  It's definitely one of my favorite places.  A few weekends ago my hubby [...]

Surfboard Shopping, part 2

DIY Surfboard Repair…Almost Fail

If you remember,  We were preparing to go the the surf festival a few weeks ago.  I went to grab my surfboard, only to discover that it had a good size crack down the middle.  It was a very sad moment in my surfing history.    This Saturday was the day.  I was all siked [...]
