Yesterday, I was talking to a friend and he said there are some people who cannot restore files from the Timemachine. Well, I tried it this morning and my earliest backup was from April 2004. But guess what I have found - a backup of my original CultureWave.com -- Later became Stokemster.com web site.
For the next several posts, I will begin posting copies from the old site.

Later in September, went to Richard Schmidt in Santa Cruz and took a beginner lesson, and I was able to catch and stand up with a push from an instructor on a 10 ft Doyle foam board. This gave me a confidence that I was using a wrong size board to start with. In fact I was so lucky that I even did a top turn and stayed on the wave face all the way from the 41st to the Shark's Cove, a good 30-40 second ride. This was one of the happiest moment in my surfing memory.
