G’Day, Paul,

We hope that our email finds you well.
The Lotus arrived today, and we are super stoked to slide with her!

All smiles here! 

Today 4-20-18 is Tracker's 5th Birthday. Happy Birthday, Tracker! 
Your inscription says:  “For Cher • 4th Gear Flyer Tracker Roundtail • Hot Wax Deck 2.0 • 4-20-13 • P.G."

Steve and I enjoyed a fun surf session today in small, clean reef waves. 

I’m thankful to enjoy riding the Tracker RT in a wide range of conditions from tiny to big swells, here in San Diego, and in San Clemente, Santa Barbara, Oahu and Australia. The Tracker handles minus low tide drainers, and flies fast through sections! Dynamic wind swell mixes are a blast with Omni too! 

When we went to Australia in 2016, Steve took his Lotus and I brought the Tracker. We had a lot of fun in northern NSW, surfing all kinds of conditions. Cherished memories with friends.

In honor of Tracker's Birthday, here are a few recent photos taken by our talented friend Sarah Lee and Axxe Classic. We hope that you enjoy the photos.

Thank you Paul for all the Joy you share with us with your 4th Gear Flyers!

Cher and Steve

Hey Paul… hope your felling better, and well on the mend.

We’ve been lucky of late with some nice ground swells rolling on in just in time for our weekend slide at our fav mat wave Gilligans…  And as i was feeling a bit off-colour  last Friday and decided that i needed to be cleansed by way of total emersion and what better way to achieve but whilst enjoying some mat time with your mates. 

Friday coincidently was also Adam’s RDO and we met up at another of Neal's favourite haunts. 

A couple of happy snaps of Neal and a quick video of that morning.. And also some high speed 4th gear flyer fun at Gillignas..
Looking forward to seeing what Huey delivers for the winter swell season..

Fridays session with Neal..       

And some good size speed runs on the Omni..   
Be safe happy and healthy mate..

A couple from the Family beach trip. Mat Riders are Tristan (the little guy) and Beep! I was able to get Beep into a couple of waves but didn’t get pictures of that (next time). This was Beeps first trip to the Beach so he was Stoking hard when he caught his first waves 😃!

Tristan is now paddling out, and paddling into his own Waves! I couldn’t be more Stoked or Proud, seeing him develop his own Love and Fascination for the Ocean!


Super Stoked,

G’day Paul , hope this finds you happy and healthy..

I've always believed in the the saying ‘work to live' not 'live to work'.. haha  and lately I’ve been unbalanced so I went seeking some  advise from SCUMM Guru aka  Neal Cameron. His advise was for me to get at one with the ocean ASAP. I quick perusal out the office window and its decided a ‘Mental Health Day’ is needed. 

With the forecasted swell and wind we headed for a lonely offshore bombora we frequent and arrived to see we were it , ding ding round 1,  after a couple hours going wave for wave and sharing many with Neal  it was decided that coffee/food was deemed to be required before we ventured elsewhere for round 2..Gilligans..  Well anyways here is a short video of the “Mental Health Day ‘ out.

Take care mate, stay safe and happy.

SCUMM and proud of it.

Chris got a new camera and housing, so he took all the pictures!

There’s so much Stoke in the water when we all get together and Surf! Everyone out there should establish a Crew. When you can feed of each other’s Positivity, Amazing things start to happen! The Omni performed really well in these conditions!

More Fake News From SCUMM

Hi Paul

All the best with your rehab & rest! My Achilles came good by Monday, just in time for work, so no surfing for me last week.

I have had to work my RDO & Saturday, so was up and early for a possible surf and sunrise, well with the wind howling offshore all night, the surf was flat, but the sunrise was just awesome!

That's me running around, throwing sand & shakas!

New Artwork from Southern California, via artist Tom Backer, arrived in the post this week as well !

Tom is a good friend and has visited back here in 2011.

This is some vision from a few weeks back, I set up my I Phone to record time lapse of the sunrise, then my canon 70D , set on a mono pole to record, as well as the usual, POV , from my helmet.
It was only small surf, but fun enough and we were joined by Neal, Paul and Anislie ( on the boogie board).

We had this for over 3 hours , with just us SCUMM riding mats, the adjacent reef had guys come and go, and they left us boys alone with many thanks! I threw 2 of my Lotus at Paul and Phil and took a Standard out initially , swapping back with Phil mid surf. My favorite mat to Ride? the Lotus! I find I have to ride further forward with my chest, but such a excellent mat to ride, Power to the Lotus!!!

Hi Paul!

I hope you have recovered from surgery and are feeling well.

The surf has picked back up and the waves have been mattastic.  These shots are from Saturday 14th at Rockview. NNW swell at 11ft 15 seconds...so what you are looking at are the inside walled up waves riding my Lotus SS.

My unusual fins are a good for big turns at high speed! Have a good weekend.
