Hows everyone doing out there? Another week gone by, and toast to a new one…There is some good swell in santa cruz today, get out there if you can! Lots going on here this week, finishing up designs, sending out orders, keeping yall updated, taxes, all kinds of fun stuff.

TAC – Mavs victim…

Did you guys hear about the dude who nearly drowned on Saturday? Just another reason to count your blessings. I guess this particular day at Mavs was relatively small, 10-15 ft. sets, Ken “Skindog” Collins stated that “if you were a begginer this was the perfect day for you to come out”. Around high noon a rogue 25 ft set came through and just washed over everyone. Making your only resort be to ditch your board and dive. Check the video here:

I just heard that the surfer Jacob Trette has woken up from a coma, my prayers are with him and his family as he barely gets by on this one.

First post

First of all, we have to establish some things first…

My name is Guilherme Pestana Vaz and I am the newest team rider of TAC Apparel Company.
I’m from Brazil, and as the opposite of many of you might think, no, i don’t like soccer, or samba although I enjoy Carnival because we have a nice whole week without class and big public parties at the edge of the beaches (they’re called ”blocos de carnaval”).

I’ll try to uptade this with some daily dose of radness, with pics, videos and music.

Back to the things I like: skimboarding, skurfing (yes, this is my f***ing blog so I will say skurfing instead of skim surfing or whatever you call it), small bikinis, rice and beans, air conditioning, and skate
I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Thrasher Magazine, a skate mag. I am a big fan of them, and their ”’King of the Road’ series…here’s the latest episode of it:

I think this is good enough for the first post…contest uptade tomorrow.

oh, this is my favorite TAC shirt
