Today was 68° air with a 62° water temp...sweet! First day back in with a 3/2 wetsuit no boots no gloves. Felt great. I was feeling so good that I decided to even take out the shortboard. That turned out to be a lesson in "how out of shape you are". I am quite out of shape. Haven't been on a shortboard in about 5 months and it shows.
Took the new wheels out on the north end this AM. Little bit nervous about it since I haven't used 4 wheel drive since the jeep. Went great! I think the pathfinder is gonna without! Now to start enjoying warmer weather! To all reading... come surfing!
The dog is my friends Grey and Christy's new huskey. His name is Sunny. Gonna be huge!
It was about stomach high with maybe chest on the sets. Paddled out on the fish and had a fun 30 - 40 min sesh. The drift was kickin and I'm so outta shape it's ridiculous... Haven't been surfing much since my hospital stay back in January. Got a couple waves with one backside hack each. Faces were super bumpy and the wind was gusting a little hard. At one point it was hard to keep my eyes from blinking because the rain was coming down so hard.
All in all fun and you can tell it's getting warmer already. Water temp was mid 50's! These pics are from wblivesurf.com not me but you get the feel for the day.
So went out today and had a fun little hour long sesh. Nothing like a waist high wave to let you know just how out of shape you are! Only caught a hand full of waves, but I did rip the bag out of one! Yesterday's gym sesh took it out of my. I think I feel spring in the air!
