Making It

Sting (The Police) once said that he knew he'd "made it" when he heard a window washer singing "Roxanne" somewhere in New York City, sometime in the 70's. We had our own brush with notoriety and fame recently when we walked in to our neighborhood sushi place and the proprietor, Sang, had a SURF STRONGER roll on the menu. Yeah it's a bit pricey, but it's the best damn roll we've ever had!

Dōmo arigatō!

Sliding Liberia on da' North Shore

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Sliding Liberia is a superb new surf documentary well worth a viewing. Our good friend, Crystal Thornburg, is one of the surf stars in the picture, and will be presenting the movie this Saturday at Café Haleiwa on the North Shore of O'ahu.

If you happen to live on O’ahu (and we know there are a lot of Hawaiian Surf Strongers out there!) or plan on visiting the island this Saturday, cruise up to Duncan Campbell's Café Haleiwa and check out a screening of the film. Guaranteed fun.

Surf Stronger Invades Surf City

The Surf Stronger Crew enjoyed a killer weekend in Huntington Beach (aka Surf City) for the kick-off of the US Open of Surfing. Highlights included a team signing with Surf Stronger's Serena Brooke, the surf at the pier Sunday morning (head high, glassy, wall'y...and warm!), and endless rounds of sushi at Tuna Town on Main. The signing was a big success with lots of surf stoked folks coming out for a poster and chance to meet Serena. We nearly ran out of posters! Special thanks to Sambazon Acai for providing delicious, healthy drinks and to Huntington Surf & Sport for having us. Also a hearty thanks to all the folks who turned up at the event. Good luck Serena in this week's competition!

One Good Thing About Music...

Music is a huge part of our program here at Surf Stronger: Before a surf or a workout, during a workout, on a run, driving our the lineup in our heads. We like music. That's probably why for Surf Stronger--Core Training we went to the effort of assembling an all-star group of musicians called the Surf Stronger House Band, and recorded an original groovy soundtrack. We got Bay Area legend Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips) and the equally legendary Steve Adams (ALO) and from there rounded out the group with sweet playing Danny Lebowitz on guitar (ALO) the amazing Jackie Greene on keys and the ever (rock) steady Adam Topol on drums. Pay attention to the music on Surf Stronger--Core Training and let us know what you think. "One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain."

Protect California Beaches. Protect Trestles!

NOTE: Looks like there are some changes on when this meeting will take place. It will NOT take place at the Bren Center. See for updates.

While the Surf Stronger crew hails from Central California, Trestles is near and dear
to our heart -- wonderful surf spot, and wonderful natural, California coastline that makes this place so epic. It's under fire from development but there's something we can do to protect it:

(taken from

The biggest hearing yet for Trestles will take place Friday, July 25th at the Bren Center on the campus of University of California, Irvine.

This hearing marks the next critical battle in a decade long fight to protect Trestles!

We already won the battle, here in California, when the California Coastal Commission (CCC) struck down the toll road on grounds it violates the Coastal Act. But, the TCA refused to accept the CCC decision and has appealed it to the Federal Government.

Now, we need to ensure the Federal Government supports important California environmental laws and upholds the Coastal Commission decision.
