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

Small and Crowded

Kinda windswelly and very crowded. Never a good combo.










Oh and by the way, the circus is coming to town:

Looks Like We're Going To Have To Wait

There's a bit of a lull in waves and it looks like through the weekend. My back went out this morning so I'm down for a few days anyway. I was just bending over to clean something about thigh high and bang, sharp pain in the low back. Oh well, Advil is my friend. Here's to good waves with friends:

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.
