Surfing Maz 2012/2013 from RD Watters on Vimeo.
Finally had time to get a video up of surfing in Mazatlan last winter. Thanks to my wife who shot some footage. I've thought back to last winter and all the fun we had. I sure miss Mazatlan. Can't wait to get back in the ocean and learn to surf again. These summers off the board are brutal. Oh well, not long now.........

So now I'm up in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Three months of nonstop boat work and fishing to look forward to. I've been here for 18 days and the weather has been great. No rain and lot's of sun. We usually put in about 6 months of work in in only 3 months time. The days are long so you can put in some long days. The sun sets at 11pm and doesn't get dark till around midnight. I'm not sure about sunrise. It's up before me.
We will start fishing sometime in mid June and will be working around the clock for over a month, 7 days a week. It's a cool place up here. With the amount of fish that come up these rivers every year, to the bears and foxes and to all the fishing boats that are here. There's more fishing boats here than year round residents. The Salmon are a huge resource for the community here and to those around the world in which they are being shipped to. Hopefully it's around a long time from now.

This past weekend was the Surf Por un Bien surf contest at Playa Bruja.
Cool hand made trophies.
Also stoked to order a new custom board from Carlos at Kingdom Surf for one of the prizes. Check his website out. His boards are under a lot of the rippers down here.

I'm happy to have support from new sponsor Helly Hansen this year. Great company that's been around for awhile. Started in 1877 by a Norwegian sea captain, Helly Juell Hansen and is wife making oilskin jackets that sold like salmon swimming up the Naknek river. Unlike other companies they've stayed at the forefront of clothing technology by staying involved with each discipline they represent. They have the best products available for biking, fishing, climbing and sailing. A few of my favorite things. Can't wait to get some new gear for this coming season.
