just wanted to share with you a pic of my board (and me) in front of a glacier in Aialik Bay, in Alaska. Brian and I just had an epic trip there on our friends' boat, the M/V MILO. We had surf almost every day in all kinds of conditions.
Here's a link if you are curious: www.oceanswellventures.com They are pretty much the only boat doing this kind of surf exploration in Alaska. I would have taken my new board, but I opted for the red one for a little extra length and float, considering all the winter gear we were wearing!
Hope all is great with you! Your wife and I are becoming Instagram buddies!
