It has been a busy summer making leather goods and it looks like fall will be the same. September is a calm time and has always been my favorite month for many reasons: summer is over and the stress of feeling like you have to make the most of it has subsided, the holiday bustle has yet to begin, and yes, the best surf of the year happens this month. I made a pledge to get in the water everyday in September, even for just a few minutes if that's all I've got. This picture came from my first body-womping session. Hopefully the waves get a little better than they were on this fine evening.
