Find your mission in life with passion

Find your mission in life with passion is key.  I like to listen to inspiring motivational speakers to learn the reminders of what is important in life.
Finding a mission doesn't mean it is something you will do for the rest of your life, but it is important to find something your passionate about and follow it until your have lost that passion or find a new passion.
I heard a great saying from Tony Robbins (growing and giving are what changes one's life) and making decisions and taking action.
Yes we cannot forget love as the center for all the above.

Healthy Foods for Children is key

Healthy whole foods for children is key and very important in many ways as we grow into adulthood.  I know more then ever how I feel on live foods and very little dead foods.  I can say from experience that having a whole foods foundation effects everything from energy to healing to strength to sleeping and having a healthy clear mind for positive thinking. 

It's great to see a company dedicated to over a 180,000 children's health studies and growing every week.
Click on the link below and see what this company is doing for the future generations.

Healthy Healing Whole Foods

A couple of years ago I was out surfing and was a bit too relaxed doing a floater with no speed.  Well lets just say I will not be doing that again.  I came down and hyperextended my right knee and it was not good to say the least,I literally had to crawl up the beach.

I put some ice on it very quickly and by the next day it had almost doubled in size.   The next few weeks I could barely walk on it without a cane or crutch and the pain was pretty strong those first few weeks.

I have tried to many supplements,vitamins and protein powders to list.  These are whole foods not a supplement or a vitamin.  I am very confident I have found the perfect combination of over 40 fruits vegetables,berries and grains for a solid foundation which I use daily, and is the major factor in healing my knee back to 100%.

Certified and tested by NSF free of all Herbicides,Pesticides,Hormones and E.CoLi

Certified Whole Foods

           This video is a great overview of the power of whole foods.

My Health is my top priority, I hope yours is to.
I am stoked and passionate about sharing my experienceses with you.

The clearer the mind gets the stronger the connection to the infinite unlimited imagination of creativity. (PC)

Shortboards surfboards San Clemente Paul Carter

A new shortboard and a comparison on the two shapes.
On the left a 5'11 by 19.75 both are 2.38 thick,the board on the right is a 5'9 by 21.
I have been riding the 5'9 in knee to chest high surf and I'm very stoked with the speed it carries through the flat sections with more then enough speed for quick or carving turns and slide when you want it.

I wanted to make a board for chest high to overhead surf that has a similar curve with a bit less volume all the way around.

The art of hanshaped surfboards San Clemente

The art scultping of Handshaped surfboards in San Clemente has many roots all the way back to the first surf shop of Velzy Jacabs in the late 50s.

The shop was located on north el camino real were the Aussie dogs is now just up from another shop with roots and fellow shaper Timmy Patterson.

There is a lot of history in SC with shops that have come and moved on such as infinity were the catalyst shop or lost surfboards is now off pico on the ocean side.
That shop was home to Rick James surfboards,Herbie Fletcher and many more. 

I think of Midget smith with whom I shared a shaping room with for 3 years. Midget was a great surfer and shaper and fun to surf with I always enjoyed talking with midget.
I'm  told he had a shop down by the sc pier in the late 70s.

The shops that followed were also started by fellow hand shapers such as Brian Clark of BC surfboards just north of del mar street. 

Stewarts shop is another shop at the south end of El Camino Real both here and Brian are in the craftsmen category and both good surfers.

I will expand further on the many shapers in San Clemente from the past to the present.
