Words of the Day:
Criddler 
Someone who hangs with a crew just to do something but isn't interested in surfing.
Crewmaster 
The one dude in a crew that always seems to be the organizer for a go out. He has the latest 411 on conditions, what break is working and generally rips when he's on it. Often the crewmaster is an older member and gets mad respect and props from his crew.
 
Quotes of the Day:
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: 
Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will, it is always interesting.
André Gide: 
It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves.

The day of Reflection, sorry for the delay, but I have bronchitis, the last 4 days have been horrible for me, so that is the cause of the delay in my finishing my blog.  I hope you enjoyed the adventures and pics. I believe we all had a great time and we added more great people to the WRSC Family Collective. WRSC is an amazing place, it brings together people from all over the world to meet and become close friends. We all have lots in common most of all the love of travel, surfing and adventure. People not afraid to travel alone and take chances and risks. So my first shout out is to Julie, who plans at some point to leave her lucrative job and move to CR and start a new life...how exciting...I know I was at that same point in my life a few months ago. So I wish her the best of luck in her endeavors and only knowing her a few days, I know she will succeed and can't wait to hear what happens.
I met Chris who is a kindred spirit, we love the same music and movies, he is a super cool intelligent bro. I look forward to hanging with him in the future.
Jennifer is a super cool chick, who does tend to get a bit dressed up for Tamarindo..lol, but is a very sweet girl who has a lot of great philanthropic ideas about building schools in Cambodia and I want to be involved in that, very inspiring...more to come on that, as I may be hitting you all up for support.
Mimi and Charlie - OMG they are super cool people, Mimi is just awesome, she is so sweet she cooked us up some southern bbq and hosted at her amazing house. Charlie is just freaking awesome as well, he is super cool guy, so much fun to be around, I was so sad he had to leave early. Thanks to Mimi and Charlie for all they did for us. 
Mary, oh sweet Mary, I am so glad she and her parents came to WRSC to experience it with us, even for a brief period of time. I know she had a good time based on things she said, now I hope she can find a teaching job there as I know she will be amazing at it.
Now to Lindy, Sean is a very lucky guy, Lindy is super cool, she fit in perfectly and is super sweet. I am glad I got to hang out with her and Sean. She is a good surfer and I think gained more confidence by surfing Witches Rock and Ollie's Point. I can't wait to go out and visit them soon.
I know I am missing other stand outs that I met, but these are just quick highlights. I wanted to thank everyone who came out this year and hope our good time will motivate the rest of the crew to show up for next event. Which if all works out will be Bali! Yes you have heard the rumors but I am working on plans to go to Bali next year. More info to come soon. So start saving your money and vacation time. We are looking at doing 2 weeks. And Yes Elizabeth I didnt forget my deal I made you...lol

Ok as for me, I had a great time with my amazing friends and family at WRSC, thanks to Shawna for all she did for us in scheduling the rooms and being super cool. I am still upset we still didnt sit down and have a beer together??? Next time! I actually got more waves than I expected, though my shoulder is quite sore and tender, Im going to let it heal for a week then go see my doctor if it doesnt get better.

Lessons Learned:
I am going to get my own room next year. No offense Johnny and Mike
Having Penthouse Roof is awesome and a Must...so next time, its someone else's turn to host.
Song I never want to hear again - Boom Boom Pow by Black Eyed Peas
Not getting hammered on Friday night - best decision I made, Saturday at airport was more bearable.
Thursday night at Local Bar for Karaoke is awesome and a Must do every year.
To try to plan other trips or visits with WRSC friends, not just snowboarding and surf trips. They are like family.
Well, I think this wraps it up for this year. Thanks to everyone and lets keep in touch!
Your Crew Master, 
And probably the coolest guy you ever met,
Friend of the Duke, 
Hero to most, 
Albert
