The Tails

Conner – Bonzer 3D

Conner

Here’s one session i had in hawaii riding the new CI Bonzer 3D model. It’s a really fast little board that you can surf in a unique way. You can really ride the board forward and get a ton of speed but then step back and turn it on a dime. It is really smooth feeling as well.

Adventures of the Youngwisetails Hawaii-2017

Per the last post, here is our newest episode! Hawaii has been a blast so far this season!

Replay : Episode 5 – Hawaii

Conner

The first year we started youngwisetails we made “The adventures of the young wise tails.” Perry edited a few classic videos with parker and I throughout a few different trips. We were traveling together a ton at the time and we would laugh our asses off and surf a ton. We were watching this when we first got over to hawaii this year and we got psyched to start doing some more similar style videos. Ryan is working on a current Hawaii episode, but in the mean time we wanted to throw it back to this video. Us hanging in Hawaii, Reef girls, and pumping Pipeline. Are you kidding? We were pigs rolling in you know what!!! haha.

Sunset Day 1

Conner

Fired up the 6’8″ CI today and surfed some solid Sunset Beach in Round 3 of the Sunset Pro. There were a few good waves, but a lot of wash throughs! I didn’t have a great heat but got a few mid range scores and got through. Super stoked to have Parker caddying for me and Mr. Ryan Perry here hanging!!! It might be finals day tomorrow!!

The James Brand

Conner

I’m super excited about working with the James Brand. James is a brand originated by a legendary group of people from Oregon/CA focusing on making killer knives and owning the every day accessories of our pockets. I’ve carried knives for a long time and just found them super useful in my day to day life in and out of surfing. The idea behind James is to explore all of the other elements of our lives besides what we are “known” for. Obviously i love surfing and i spend a ton of time doing that, but outside of that i love family time, fishing, music, and cooking. Among other things. Before I headed out for Europe, the boys came and spent a day with me at home. I’d just caught a few fish the day before so we filleted those, did some work in the garden, played some music, and cruised around Santa Barbara Embry Rucker is an amazing photographer, epic human, and also part of the James Brand team. I’ll trickle out the photos from our day over the next little while!
