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

Yesterday and Today

Yesterday: 
Head high + and ultra crowded. My wave count was down, only 7 waves, but I did get a barrel (ask Reed) so I went home happy. I had to replace the audio in the video below with some cheezy music because of some adult themed discussion in the background.












Today: 
Smaller today but surprisingly big for a 1.3 on the buoy. Not crowded early and a good vibe in the water. It did get insanely crowded with youngsters around 7:30. Last day of summer and back to school tomorrow for these hooligans :-)

It's Nice To Get Back In The Water

After a week in Portland. We went to a family wedding in Banks and then enjoyed some of the city and went to the coast too.

Locally, the water is still warm and there were a few decent waves to be had.  Now that I have all the travel behind me I can concentrate on surfing more.

Wish this dude was on the CT.

Micro

But I paddled out anyway at 5:40. I only stayed for a little over an hour. I caught 3 waves in the first 20 minutes and then there was a super long lull. Finally, I just took off on a micro wave and rode it straight through the keyhole just to get outa there. I'm sure it's going to pick up a little when the tide fills in, but I had to get wet before I leave for the northwest tomorrow morning. Hope y'all get some waves while I'm gone.

Pretty Meager

But I paddled out anyway. Why not get wet? The water was in the 70's, the wind was calm and there was just a handful of guys in the water.
