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

Yesterday & The Day Before

Well Tuesday I surfed in the afternoon. I forgot my backpack, wallet and phone at home so there are no pictures. You know how it is, you get all amped up to surf and forget everything else. Luckily I had an extra wetsuit in the truck. Doh!
So just picture yesterday, a little bit bigger and with less wind. I actually had more fun yesterday cuz there were only 3 of us in the water. :-)

Merry Christmas - Belated

Been a busy week with Family. We had 40 family members over for dinner on the 23rd, Santa showed up and we had a white elephant gift exchange. Sunday was a clean-up and recovery day. Christmas day was spent at my daughter's house.
Owning Christmas

Missing these two, will be visiting soon!

Not Much Happening Round Here

We got a new Champ, same as the old Champ!

We got some bad sportsmanship from a bad actor on the tour:

Yeah, well, ya know, that's just like, ah, your opinion man....
(The Big Lebowski)

And we got a buzzer beater finish!


Meanwhile at uppers, the waiting game continues:

Yesterday's Devil Wind

It was offshore when we first paddled out in the dark. There was an odd little bump on it too. I caught a few OK waves and then noticed a change in the wind to South, 10 minutes later it was over. Nothing a #1 breakfast burrito at Pipes won't cure though.

I don't think I paddled 18.5 miles in 58 min?!?
What's up with that Rip Curl?
