Scoff if you must...

  • at Spongers like myself and today's conditions (depending on your locale). I would bet that NONE of the standups around here got as many MAKEABLE tube rides as I did this AM before the NNE wind turned more east and chopped it up.


    For whatever reason, a particular sandbar, wind and sets lined up to sneak under the standups on the outside to hit the bar in such a way to double up and peel along perfectly with open barrels and spit. After the first one, I couldn't believe it was THAT good. A little wait for those, but again and again they peeled off with precision. Maybe a bit optimistic, but I 'one-one thousand's" to 'four one thousand' on one of them before I came out with the collapsing spit. Maybe 6 or 8 of those before the side chop, tide and wind messed up the lineup. Fellow sponger came out after the condition change with his mounted GoPro (on the board and not the mouth thing, thankfully), so I did the usual "you missed it by about an hour" speech and got out to take the niece out on a few of the insiders. After that the swell dropped, tide went up and everything pretty much mushed out. After yesterday's SUPER drifty session and lots of "walk backs" after 2 or 3, super easy to line up today and keep position for the crackers. So, I'll give a good hearted NYAH-NYAH....

  • Both this weekend and last, if you were on the right equipment, it was a ton of fun. I got myself reacquainted with how fun riding a 9'6 noserider can be in long, small walls. Stoked.


    Did not get tubed though, that is true. Maybe a little shampoo here and there. ;)

  • I pulled out the hand-plane and fins on Sunday afternoon because I was too tired from surfing and boogin' all weekend.  Tons of fun.
