We are getting the last coat of paint on Vale la Pena and getting ready the motor all dialed in to get some of these waves. Drew arrived yesterday and is already working on making sure the new Suzuki 140 motor on Vale is ready to go without a hitch this season. Katie, our new …Continue Reading »
The first real glimpse of the southern swell has come right on schedule. We always tell people that it turns up around the first week of March, and 2014 kept us to our word. We’ve had two days of head high sets pounding into Amarillo. It has been the early season, immature swell that makes …Continue Reading »

First off I would like to thank our AMAZING guests from this week, Kirsten and Leslie. We got a little too busy at the camp and left your guys hanging on the Giant’s Foot Surf Report.
Amarillo has been fun and consistent with knee to waste high waves and consistent offshore winds. It’s been …Continue Reading »
That time off sure was nice, but enough of fatty American fair food and smooth roads. We are back in Gigante and cracking away at the low season.
