Couple more shots from the recent weeks of surf in the South Bay.

Here is a nice morning update from Holly Beck about her epic winter. Stay tuned for more to come
Happy best winter ever in Southern California! Even though I haven't been home nearly enough to fully savor it, the days I have surfed close to home have been pretty darn amazing. Hope you've been scoring as well. If this morning's ridiculously high tide has you waiting around in front of the computer like I am, here are a few links you could check out while waiting for the tide to drop.
1. A really detailed audio and visual jaunt through pre-earthquake Haiti. You've seen nothing but destruction and chaos on tv lately, click here to see how it looked before the ground shook and the buildings fell, along with a taste of what the waves are like. Turn up your volume. The accents of my fellow travelers are definitely entertaining.
2. A quick little feature on my travel philosophy and addiction. No surprise to many of you, but a nicely put together article and photos.
3. Jettygirl.com unfailingly supports women surfers, even the dedicated ripping girls you've never heard of, unlike the rest of the surfing world. They put together a cool feature comparing the answers of an incredible number of surfing females to the same five questions. Here's a link to my answers, then you can scroll down to a list of names of others who answered as well.
4. Finally, with a couple weeks at home I got to work updating my blog.

After working through a injury last year, Gabe Kling is back out surfing. He recently was down in the South Bay and hooked up with Mike Balzer for a few days to get some shots. They scored waves at Redondo and Manhattan Beach.

The past few weeks the Body Glove team riders have been scoring some of the best winter waves ever. This was a session from a few weeks back over at Hammerland.
Body Glove is stoked to announce the winner of the Pipeline Event and the Overall Sky Title for the Body Glove Fantasy Surfer Skybox. James Helm and his team "Carolina Beach" from Carolina, NC scored a new Vapor 3/2 Fullsuit for winning the Pipeline event and Michael Fishman's Team MEF from New York City took home the overall Body Glove Skybox title and scored himself a new Vapor Wetsuit and a package of other Body Glove swag.
We caught up with James after his big win and he said, "I am really excited about the wetsuit and pretty shocked that I won. I couldn't believe I got lucky and actually picked the top 5 guys at Pipe. It is a little cold this time of year for a 3/2 here in North Carolina, but it will be sweet in the spring. I have heard from the guys here at our local shop, Island Kite and Surf that the Vapor is a great suit and really looking forward to trying it out. Thanks again and definitely going to play again next season.
We also caught up with overall winner Michael he said, "I am really excited to win. There was tough competition in the Body Glove Skybox. I look forward to the prize package and can't wait to defend the title next year.
Join the Body Glove Fantasy Surfer Skybox in 2010 and see if you can take out James and Michael at the next event on the Gold Coast in Australia. Body Glove will be offering more great prizes and special offers in 2010.
