Ever watch YouTube and you ask yourself why this person feels the need to post a video of himself singing to his ferret? Everyone feels like they have something to say or show and this is what has spurned on the growth of Twitter and YouTube. Well, I have always enjoyed writing and this seems like a great vehicle to force the world to listen to my off kilter views. Thus, my blog was born!
Who is this Steve guy and what is he about?
I have lead an interesting life. I was born in Hawaii and caught my first waves on the westside of Oahu. After my father retired, he decided to do the opposite of most and hauled the family off to Florida. During this time, I started to surf in contests and moved up through the ranks. I have coached several surf teams and surfers.
What is The Side Wedge?
After moving to Florida, I frequented Sebastian Inlet in its glorious days of the 1980’s. It was at this break that I learned to enjoy catching the side wedge off the jetty. Now I am based at Ponce Inlet which has similar attributes. So The Side Wedge is my homage to my local surf spots. It also my way to connect with surfers who might seek out some help in advancing their skills in the water. I also offer some stories cultivated from years of living out of a suitcase and putting on a contest singlet at some fishing town.
Please feel free to leave comments or to contact me. I am also available for coaching if you live in the Central Florida area.
