Didn't Surf On The Weekend

Saturday was filled with family stuff (#1 priority) and then we had a couple of Munchkins spend the night too. So I had too stay home Sunday to make hot chocolate and Mickey Mouse pancakes.



I supposedly missed some uncrowded waves on Sunday, but my source is somewhat unreliable :-).




 

Also, here are some pics from last Friday that Ruben took of yours truly:

Not too bad for an old guy.

It Felt A Lot Like Fall Today

Yup, clear skies, cooler air temp, cooler water and nice off shores.  It wasn't all that big or consistent nor was the shape all that great; fast sectiony lines. But if you got the right one....
Ruben Pina was on the beach taking pictures this morning. So if you were out there and want to see if he got any good photos of you email him at the link provided.

Love This Balmy Weather!

I had to be on the phone at 7:00 but didn't want to miss out either. So I paddled out at O-Dark-Thirty and surfed for 75 minutes. Only caught 5 waves. Two nice long shoulder high runners, a nice long left, a right where I was too deep and a group wave to go in on. It was somewhat lully after the first half hour and it was getting super crowded as I left. Droves of people coming down on my way back up too. The video below has someone getting run over! Hope he's alright.


Fred, with Nick making sure he's on it :-D













Rob setting up for his signature lip bash. 

Bam!





Wow! Looks like a post card. Here's the message on the back:
Go Surf! ...somewhere else

This Only Happens Once A Summer

This morning there was only Will, Paul and myself for an hour and a half. We had fairly consistent waist to chest high runners, glassy conditions and ultra-warm water. I was roasting in my 2mm. The only downside was the minus tide 50 yard rock dance on the way in and out of the water. That and my sprained elbow didn't respond well to all the activity. Going to try a homeopathic medication recommended by a friend.
