Long Board Meeting

Long Board Meeting

Late April, 2010.
Finally the buoys have begun to relax, and the amazing winter grinds to a halt.
Once again, our ocean has some flat days.

And to most folks, this was one of those flat days.

But when you hang around this guy, Doug Yartz, you’re going to surf,
no matter what the numbers tell you.

This day, Kevin Long was Doug’s accomplice as they made off with a rare gem of a
morning. Perfect little waves on a gorgeous day, and they had it all to themselves.

Mr. Yartz has plenty of practice deciphering the numbers and charts, as he does the
morning surf report for the local radio station.
But don’t just call him up at Surf Country and ask him where the surf is, that would be in
bad form…..
Go buy something, and then ask him……

Style.
Something surfing used to have more of.

We knew Kevin surfed a lot, but we were surprised at the longboarding skills.
He was more than comfortable and has some serious style flowing through that stringer.
