It is Thursday February 4th 2018 it is 6 o'clock in the morning it is way too early to be awake, I'm on the corner of 8th Avenue, and 42nd Street, and I am in desperate need of a cup of coffee right now I was gonna ride my bike down here. But it's a little wet today it's kind of like a light rain drizzle. So I took the subway instead which is probably for the best. Because riding my bike half asleep through Midtown's not another good thing grabbed my morning cup of coffee this should give me a little jolt to wake me up it's crazy how busy the city is at such an early hour the reason why, I'm awake at 6 o'clock in the morning on a Thursday is. Because, I'm leaving New York City right now just for the day, I'm taking a day trip out of town to try out my brand new camera to kind of just get it ready for the Costa Rica trip. Because there's so many different settings on it I want to get really really good at using this camera.

So when we do go down to Costa Rica, I'm not fumbling around with the camera I can just you know already know how to use it, and enjoy our time down there. So, I'm heading out of town now yeah we are in Brigantine New Jersey that is Atlantic City over there that's the Atlantic City inlet this is my brand-new gopro hero4 black I am so pumped to have this camera for the Costa Rica trip. So what we're doing right now is we're testing it out there's a little little wave if you can see in the distance ready these are the perils of surfing in the winter you have the full hat the full body suit the gloves, and the boots, and little brother Dylan they're good little brother Dylan he's surfing today and, I'm gonna go stand up paddle board. Because the wetsuit, I'm wearing right now has a hole in the crotch and, I'm not trying to go out in 38 degree water with a hole in the crotch on the surfboard see on the stand-up board you're not gonna get wet too much. But surfing here where is he at right there there's my brother's friend Nick in the water, and he is surfing. So if you're in the water like that, and you have a hole in the crotch your suit that is not good, I'm taking out the big board today this is a 12-foot standard no it's not 12 foot you know when you see GoPro posts on, and some are like really amazing, and they're super color corrected, and the frame rates all correct, and then there's other GoPro posts where it's kind of like shaky craziness I want to have the for the first version the nice smooth version.
So this is like a test run, I'm gonna switch over to the GoPro post, and test this thing out now the moment we've been waiting for is here it's just about 5:00 p.m. I surfed from I got in that like 10 a.m. surfed until 12: 45 got out of the water got some food kind of warmed up a little bit went back out, and now it's 5 o'clock the thing about this Beach that's really interesting is this jetty right here this rock jetty is a mile long. So it starts right here you paddle all the way out here all the way down out around the rocks. So right right there in the distance, I'm if you can see that too clearly that's where we were surfing way out there what's up look who's come to join us everyone's favorite Bulldog looks like a cow on the beach trying to eat dicks, and whatnot the life of a bulldog look at he's such a good dog no don't eat trash I have yet to check out this GoPro footage.
So I have no clue why I just shot hopefully it's good or the first time I went out I had a bored mount, and the bored mount fell off. Because the water was so cold what is he what are you doing he's crazy he just runs around in circles lookit look at him go. But like I was saying the first time I went out I had this board mount. So you could see me on the board paddling surfing with the wave in the background the board mount fell off. Because the water was too cold. So then I had to hold the GoPro in my teeth with the orange back part in my teeth for the first hour, and that's why I came in.
Because my jaw was hurting. So bad then the second time out I just put a little rope around the GoPro, and wore like a necklace. So I'd paddle into the way if I'd pick it up, and then post the wave, and post me, and it is dinner time for both of us come on dinner time let's go yeah this is my mom rocking her favorite son Bubba as she recovered from her surgery what do you do have surgery on mom your children, and now you have your lap dog cheering you up. But in your in his mind you're his mother by the way Bubba just launched his own blog, I'll link it down below he hasn't posted any posts yet. But he's thinking about it everything with the camera facing the wrong way. So let me just try this again here, I'm sorry excited I had like the most amazing day I had a Vineyard Vines casting earlier today, and it's always. So funny when I go to these castings cuz, I'm like you guys know that like I could rap with this like Vineyard Vines LL Bean I had a casting for them the other day it's like New England it's my homeland you know I mean I always felt like.
So excited when I go. But I never get them of course you know it's just one of those things, and then I was at large for four hours shooting I think it was just like sort of a test post or two to test posts just to see like how things are working, and what's gonna happen, and I might go in for another test post or the real posts. But it went really really well. So far, and the whole allure team there is so sweet, and like opened up a bottle of wine to celebrate tonight. Because I had so much fun today, and you guys are gonna like die when you see what they gave me.
