Yesterday at Baker, I fell in a gnarly patch of deep stuff. As I was getting up, NWBoarder came in, fell over backwards, and smacked me right on the forehead with the bottom of his board. I actually saw the big ol' NS insigna coming straight at me.

Pretty glad I had a helmet on.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
