Tom Carey out takes on Plug-ins.

A Couple years back I ask Tom if he wanted to earn some extra $$ while on the road to get some Plug-ins with the pro’s during down time. He agreed and here are a couple he delivered to me while traveling in Mexico a few years back. I came across them while organizing my shit recently and I thought I would share them with you. Tom, I still have to pay you for these,

Going South with Tom Curren, Tyler Warren and Friends

This last summer I finally persuaded TC to go South with Jalian and I to ride some fun right handers along with his son, Frank.   Days before departure, Tyler Warren wanted to jump in and join in on the adventure.  And of course, I couldn’t refuse.  We ended up scoring some good waves, with good conditions and all had a great time.  Plenty of variety of boards were ridden from old school 70’s to the most modern latest and greatest from Tomo.  This here is just a rough glimps of what was.

Enjoy – Buggs
