What ype of surfer are you?

Through the years have ridden long boards, short(er) boards, round-tails, pin-tails, square-tails, single fin, twin fins, triples (I even built a 'step-deck' that was a piece of junk) and, in this century, have settled on a Steve Swan 9-6 single fin noserider (I like to ride forward).

Where is the best place to surf on the oregon coast?

I don't ride The Cove ... to me it is a board buster ... that's my experience. But I like Short Sands, Pacific City, Otter Rock and South Beach in Newport, albeit without nosy sharks. I like a point break ... something to get out of the afternoon on-shores that are common along our coast.

Other than surfing why are you joining this group?

Possible car-pooling and making new contacts.


Hi, I'm John and I have been surfing a few years... just a few. Learned to surf in SoCal when I was 14...I have been in Portland since in 1990. Surfing is still something that feeds my spirit. Also a member of Surfrider Foundation, Portland Chapter
