I still have to find the definition of a Log… But in my world it is one massive surf board with one big fin that gets you going on any little wave the ocean produces and allow you to do the most beautiful dances on water. This weekend I saw a whole lot of loggers and dancers at Cobbles Classic Single Fin Challenge. It was the third annual event hosted by the Loggers Union at their local surf spot ‘Cobbles’.
Surfers from all corners embarked on a road trip to be part of this special event. One thing that binds us all together, the pure love of surfing as it was intended to be by the surfing legends that has gone before us. The competition rules were: Surf a Log, No leash, No hazzling, Take turns on the waves, Only good vibes. What a pleasure it was.
I have been long boarding for a long time now, but never surfed a Log. In order to be part of the Loggers Union, it was inevitable that I was going to need one. Des Sawyer who has always made my surfboards, made my a beautiful new board which was finished one day before the event. It didn’t take me too long to fall in love with it. The board feels majestic, it slides on the waves and all I need to do is go with where the wave is going and do what the wave allows me to do. The best part of the event was that we could all surf together and spend two full days on the beach, young and old. The little competitor did kick in though and I was very pleased with a second place!
