  • i feel like sybil. i'm fully expecting to wake up to a 4th ny surfing site, with further re-incarnations of the local crew.

    RD and i are back from the cape. talk about aloha. you can actually walk into a local surf shop and be greeted with a smile and told where the best breaks are. actually, before we even got there, my mother had already ferreted this information out of the lifeguards. go mom.

    before we even hit the water, RD had purchased a sick Foxy 6'1" thruster, the "Wave Weapon." it is as 80s as you can get, pretty much the color of a full set of highlighters. 1 beautifully repaired ding and some sticker gumminess, but otherwise perfection for $150. there may be a skirmish or 2 over Foxy once caine season hits.

    wellfleet's waves are completely tidal, so after some guesstimating, we figured out that about 2 hours prior to low would be when the sandbars would start breaking. we scored some excellent waves on saturday, i pulled off some neat top turns early on in the session and by days end was so tired i could hardly pop-up. RD killed it on Red Rocket, my 7'2" single fin, he really works those 50/50 rails to his advantage. sundays waves were pretty awful, but today it picked up again. we tried a different break, and for about 20 minutes we pretty much had it all to ourselves. before i had even made it into the water, RD dropped into a chest high peeler, carved his way down the line, and garnered the applause of some old biddies monitoring the action. it was a fun session, crumbly as usual though, and a bit more crowded with some local teenage shortboarders. one gidget completely stuffed RD and then paddled back out as if nothing had happened...i was ready to take her down but RD turned the other cheek so i followed suit. didn't stop us from talking rather pointedly about a certain chick's poor manners.

    all in all, a fun time, plenty of waves, lots of good vibes in the water, and endless sweet treats supplied by my aunt harriet.

  • we were in wellfleet. anyone who is up there should stop by Sickday Surf Shop, which is on the road that leads to the harbor (where you can buy a parking permit for the beach, good things ain't free). those guys chatted with us, blew up their spots, let us use their internet access, gave us discounts, and were just "wicked awesome." next time you meet someone in the water from around those parts, give him/her a wave!

    next time you meet someone in the water from around those parts, give him/her a wave!

    Unless it's a li'l blonde chippy with two hoops in her upper left ear, on a white fishy thruster and middling ability. I gave that broad at least three waves, and just as I'm perched for a nice left, BURN. As Hap paddled back to the lineup from her ride (she saw the whole thing), I simply asked "do you have any sunscreen, cuz I just got BURNED!" for all to hear. I guess it was payback for my calling off a vacationer on a Bic with a louder than necessary "HEY!" But, if you were riding Happy's lovely Scott Anderson Borjorquez Malibu Special (aka: Red Rocket) and some dude on a plastic not-so-fantastic was poised to drop in on you, what would your reaction be?
    But with the chippy, all I can say is that if I had been riding my own surfboard instead of Red Rocket, she would have received the Bubbaj1 treatment (and nobody wants the Bubbaj1 treatment).

    Cape Cod is amazing. I told Happy that we could make "the most excellent Jesus movie" there. Also, how often do you get a septagenerian beach ovation after your first wave?

    PS: Hey Blueberry, if you all thought that the Schroff was fun, just wait until you see "Foxy."
    So heavy you can't even pick it up.

    You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

  • welcome back kids.....see you this weekend
    I knew I would never be hard core. So I tried to be soft core. Instead, Iím just an apple core.
