There is nothing better than salt in the air and sand in my hair (what's left of it).

Glad I Went Late

Tide was dropping, sun was warm and not too many takers. Too bad it was so soft and slow. But still managed to get a few fun ones, especially after I moved over to the bay.

Mainz, Germany

John Wayne to DFW yesterday was one of the most turbulent flights I've ever been on and I've flown well over two million miles in my career so far. Damn those Santa Ana's!
It's a cold miserable overcast 28 degrees here today. I got here early, my coworkers from Ireland won't get here till late tonight, so I've spent the day hunkered down in my room getting ready for the week's work. Hope there's some waves left for me Saturday.

The first half of my session, way up on the point, sucked. The second half was a blast in the bay. The swell size was not as advertised, I want a refund.
I'm really bummed cuz I have to go to Germany next week and the forecast looks good. I will have to drown my sorrows in Weissbier.

Probably Should Have Slept In

But was hoping for an early showing from the new super secret swell. Barred Again! But I paddled out anyway with Dr Black. There were some flurries of belly to waist high waves, but a lot of waiting around in between. The sunrise was cool.

That's a high pressure job

Slightly Smaller

But still playful with even less people than yesterday. I caught one wave that deposited me on the sand between lowers and the shack, I got out and walked back to the channel to paddle back out. I need to take tomorrow off to rest my arms, they feel like jello.
