Hey everybody…Welcome to Tony and Amery’s R&D Blog henceforth known as the
“T & A Blog” (laughs)

First, a little background on me to begin. I grew up with a very limited options for things to do. My father was (and still is) really into huntin’ and fishin’ so that’s what we kids did. I was packing a shotgun by age eight and it was all I wanted to do at the time. This all changed one day when we were fishing. We were making a nice wake from our boat and I was looking at the wave. Then I threw out the spoon that was on my line and it started to plane along on the wave. I could control it up and down the wave and I started pretending that I was really small and I was surfing it. (I didn’t know surfing existed at this time.) That night I went to my tackle box and found a longer spoon, I cut the hooks off. Now it was designed just for surfing the wake, and I was ready! So when the wake was shaping up on the next fishing trip I was in the back of the boat mind surfing! I became a student of surfing, I just didn’t know it yet. I think these early years of my life developed a unique understanding of how things interact with nature. These types of experiments led me into a diverse background in skateboarding, surfing, windsurfing, waterskiing, wakeboarding , snowboarding, skiing, motocross, and for the last ten years kiteboarding. It’s been a fun ride. So I thought we would share some random moments. In this blog

But enough about me! Let’s talk about Amery. Where to start? Amery Bernard is a very dedicated, hard working person that is entrenched in SS R&D. He has a true passion for it and it definitely shows. I think Amery sees R&D the same way that I do, as a science and art form. We thought it would be fun to post stuff on the blog like R&D board porn, music, food and life. Whatever! I hope you enjoy our posts from our travels and work.

Cheers ~T~

Ok, so its been a long time since my first and only post on this thing, but contrary to popular opinion, I do actually work and don’t have time for this kind of kak. So in summary, weather is nice, work is going, wind is blowing, drinks are flowing, laptop jacked, got emergency repacement, knee is busted, healing fast, bionic knee here soon, good monkeys, good times, good people…I’ll let the pictures do the talking…
