A briefly possible conversation…


Tuesday morning, after a near perfect head-high glassy session on the Oregon coast…

Gerry Lopez: Hey hunnybunny – you’ll never guess who I surfed with today…

Wife of Gerry Lopez: …I don’t know sugar-britches – who was that…?

GL: Just the one and only Penfold – from Surfugal…

WOGL: You’re shittin’me! Holy cow…

GL: God’s own truth! And I think I dropped in on him too…

I didn’t surf today.


  1. the stick is to beat off all the dolpins who turned up to take the piss out of the hat i reckon.

  2. Hey Twin – well to be honest it was a pleasure watching the master at work even if he is a wave hogging git (cheaper than buying a DVD too). I managed to sneak a few off him though. I liked surfing in Oregon…

    KPX – have you been reading my blog again Ma? I hope you don’t let Dad see it – I keep saying rude things about him.

    DP – well he’s older than you. I’m thinking that you wouldn’t manage to get into a wetsuit let alone get into the water.

    Hi UDH – he did look a bit like a flowerpot man standing out back. Although as soon as he started to paddle even the dolphins were applauding… x

  3. He puts in 4 hour stretches in the water at the drop of a hat, not bad for someone who is hitting 60….. good surfing with you Pen, glad you got some while you were here, it’s crap today……

  4. Norvermbrer – please. Only Gerry is allowed to call me that! (Crazy fool thought I was someone else)
    Quick we should go to Tofino and surf some more – woo hoo! xxx

    Welcome Gaz – he’s not bad for an old man. My Dad could take a leaf out of his book (if he had the strength to tear it out). Good surfing with you guys too. See you one day again I hope…

  5. Nothing clever to add to the thread, just dropping in to say cool blog (and probably nudge up the average age).

    Penfold – supercool surfing blogger dude. Who’da thunkit?

  6. Welcome Sr Somnambulist – don’t worry we’re all teetering on the brink of extinction round here! Who’da thunkit indeed…? (supercool and dude may be points for discussion)

    Hey Nursie – ‘dropped in on’ is surfese for ‘being cut up by’ (the rest is just the usual load of old nonsense found around these here parts…)

  7. i broke the mountie you brought me already can you go and get me another one please 😉 x
