Why I Love The Frog House

why I love the Frog House

The Frog House of Newport Beach, CA

The Frog House is a surf shop in Newport Beach, CA.  Its basically one of my favorite places.

Its been around for years and the owner, TK, has kept it true to the roots of a core surf shop.  Most of the floor space is devoted to surfboards, with the rest going to wetsuits, skateboards, fins and DVDs.  They sell a few T-shirts but most of their sales come from products that are used “for surfing” as opposed to “for surfers.” Continue reading ‘Why I Love The Frog House’

Snowboarding For Surfers

greg kroleski snowboarding

I’m mainly a surfer.  When it comes to board sports, my TOB (time on board) breaks down to about: 60% surfboards, 20% longboard skateboards, 15% balance boards, 3% snowboards & 2% other boards.

This winter’s been pretty flat though, so I decided to join some buddies on a snowboarding trip to Lake Tahoe last week.  (Little did I know the one one swell that hits in the past two months would be during that week) Continue reading ‘Snowboarding For Surfers’

How I Keep Stoked In The Wintertime

This will probably turn into a full article but here are some preview pics.  In So Cal, after the time change it starts getting dark around 5pm.  I work until about 7pm so that means there is no chance of there being light when I’m off work.  However, after a long day, nothing is better to unwind to than a little stoke.

C-Drive Fins Review

Recently the team from C-Drive fins asked SurfScience to take a look at their new surfboard fin technology.  The Australian based team has been working on the design for about 8 years now.  The goal of these fins is to create more drive, allowing surfers to gain speed and perform better high performance and aerial maneuvers.

Happy Halloween From

It is Halloween which mean I get to get out my old Ninja Turtles costume and once again become Raphael for a night.  Though I wear it more than once a year, Halloween is the only night I don’t get strange looks for it.
