SLAB

I was doing a little beach exploration when I stumbled on this sub sea level fold in the ocean...


THICK lip...


These waves are much bigger than they look in the pictures (easy overhead).  Some of the sets were absolutely filthy, spitting huge amounts of spray from the ultra thick lipped barrels. 

I am sure other people have probably seen this little slab.  Not sure if anyone has taken it on?

Sasquatch. Could you explain why you feel the need to put this online? When was the NW ninja who would strike silently replaced with the keyboard queer who needs a crowd to spout off to about beach exploration. FUCK@@@@!!!!!!! How many NW surf blogs do we need? Please answer these for starters, and then I'll send more. dontbeakook2@gmail.com. Seriously. and yeah, greenpastures, it's a tow wave for sure. Jet skis only. Don't even start on the why are you so angry shit. You guys are blowing it.

@ Dontbeakook2 (a name which screams: I am a soft top riding kook!)... I was debating whether or not I should put this up. But then again, I debate that with everything I put up since no matter what people like you (who, lets be honest have NEVER surfed this spot and NEVER will) will bitch and complain.

When I started this blog it was just something to kill time... nobody looked at it So for me, its more of a journal type thing, something that I can look back on and remember my good trips. But now, people actually look at this shit, so I can't post half of my good shots, because those would really piss people off...

I have been thinking a lot about making this thing private, and just giving a few bros access. Honestly, I don't want to make anyone mad... I think the vibes at most of our spots are great, and even though you sound like a big drunken ass on the internet dontbeakook2, I am sure we would be chill if we met on the beach (which has probably already happened if you actually surf here..). The last thing I want is to worry about getting hassled at the beaches I love...

So.... anyway. See you keyboard queers out there.

I like seeing the waves I surf on the weekends on my computer during the week. It gives me something to look forward to. Keep posting away.

Have to admit, Dontbeakook2's pretty F-ing hillar. Please keep posting away dudely.

Being opposed to someone drawing attention to spots, does not mean that you endorse localism or ass hole like behavior. It has to do more with respect for the people that surfed there before you and the attitude they established. of go surf, have fun, share some waves, but keep it quit. To give you an idea of this there are spots on your site that my own brother wouldn’t tell me how to find. There is definitely a divide between this way of though and yours.

Not trying to say that just because this is how it was makes it right. But take a minute to really think about it
Also you understand why this makes people upset. That is, I am assuming every time you go surfing you don’t paddle up to the middle of the peak and introduce yourself as the person that is going to post all their pics from this session on the internet.

This may be the only spot I have ever posted about that isn't already on sites like wannasurf... And I have never posted directions or really even named exactly where these places are.

Also, nobody is going to show up at this spot because of these shots, or somehow miraculously look at a picture and know exactly where it is, how to get there, and when its good.

I can tell it makes you mad, but I think you should just lighten up and enjoy a few photos of a gnarly remote wave. Sorry for blowing it up...You can tell from the pictures how SUPER CROWDED it already is on one of the very rare a good days...

wasn't refering to this pic. just your site in genral. yeah if wannasurf is where you choose to set the bar, then this is a great site.

none of the spots you post are a big secret. most people already know about them. but putting up a good pic definetly ups the exsposure and the drive for people to head out there.

SurfingwithSasquatch said...

Thanks I guess? Agreed that good shots increase the exposure. But lets face it, there has been a good deal of exposure, and still, most days you could go solo (even in the summer)...

disagre. every year more and more peole are seen in the line ups. while it is possable to still get uncroded days. got a couple the last two weeks the majority of the times, when suring a "go to spot" spots are overcrowded resulting in alot of BS additude to deal with. maby If I didn't have a nine to five I would think difrently. was talking with frank from NXNW the other day and even he said how a lot of times he dosn't surf friday thru monday unless its real good, due to the crowds. enough of the ranting also what type size lens do you use?

SurfingwithSasquatch said...

I have a 35mm lens. My camera is not anything special. Its an old Fujifilm S500 digital camera. Not SLR or anything...

Someone should probably confiscate that camera. Post a picture of yourself so you can really take credit for your work.

SurfingwithSasquatch said...

get a life ANONYMOUS. first of all, you have no idea where this is... and none of these words or images will bring more people. too much hiking.

Me and my Moclips bros really don't appreciate you posting pics of our local break..oops...I accidently said Moclips...how do I delete this...Shit!

anonymoustoughguy said...

seriously.....fuck anonymous guy. so sick of the same tired ass argument. although i can appreciate he can put together a few competent(although misspelled) sentences. was bummed when you shut the site down for a bit....keep it up and fuck these guys. oh and, love the NXNW name drop to let us all know how rad you are

I thnink there might be more than 1 anynous poster.

you need to get your shit stright. I only posted on here 2X. neather of wich were negative. Droping franks name to up the radness? Think that most people have talked with the guy don't realy think thats a big name drop. the point I was making was in responce to "waves here arn't crowded argument". Few people know were and when to surf more then frank. Ask him to show you his personal pics some time. dude is always on it. If he, with his "I close down my shop when the waves are good work ethic", says its crowded. I thought it would be a good source to reference.

insted of just talking shit why don't you actualy listen to what I said and try and constructivly respond. Sorry that the , asshole local, or dumb hick arugument dons't apley. mabey shit talking is your only option. as for the spelling you got me there. gausse if bloging on the internet dosn't pan out I will have to fall back on the structural engineering job.

ps you sould check out my blog. its called I'm rad becasue I surfed the dump and then camped in the rain. check it out then you will see how rad I am.

and sasquatch. its' your web site check the IP adress before you respond. you said you shoot a 35mm. is this a prime, just wondering cause pics look like more tele. was looking thru the computor last night and its funney I have alot of pics of places that are almost the same composision of the same place. drop a line if want to see some of them. I think the main reason people got pissed wasnt that this wave inperticular was shonw. the people that were shit talking most likly about are upset about all the other waves that wave been shown. your post of finding something rare and undiscoverd and then putting it strait onto the net was the igniter. I like your pics they are well shot and do a good job of capturing the moment. But have you ever been on a surf blog that didn't resolve to shit talking.
might wan't to be prepared for more in the future and hope that it dosn't find its way into the lineup as it usaly dose. another reason

SurfingwithSasquatch said...

I think everyone is confused by the multiple anonymous authors. At least make up a funny name like Cleadus McNuggets or Dingus VonWinklestein.

"have you ever been on a surf blog that didn't resolve to shit talking". True. But it is the most entertaining part, and I like to think that its mostly harmless.

Check my IP why? I am so confused...

Hey, I surfed the last 2 days and didnt post any pictures! Am I gnarly-cool like you now?

I kid... I am just kind of over this whole argument.
