tuesday clean head high

only a few other guys out and some clean, peaky waves. lowish tide, relatively long paddle. drifted north 4 blocks but scored some fun waves along the way. punted a little air on my last wave but fell trying to land in the whitewash. this might be my last session at OB before heading waaaaay north to score some empty waves, then I'm off to Kauai to trunk it for the first time in over a year.

knee to face

this morning was pretty clean and head high at OB. only a couple of guys out early. a little soft on the outside, but some pitching waves on the inside, and occasionally a section would hold up really well. got a bunch of decent rides, but on one late takeoff completely blew it, went over the falls and somehow managed to smash my knee into my cheekbone. I have a little shiner, but my eye isn't bloody or anything. Looking forward to scoring some clean surf again tomorrow AM, probably will head south and go hiking afterwards.

small waves, blue angels, gus

small crappy waves, a brief blue angels showing, and Gus trying to catch a cookie off of his nose and blowing it. aside from an epic game of Surfing Monopoly, that was my weekend.

new superzoom test run

another junky dawn patrol

we all hoped it would be better...at least there were some fun drops, but hard to be in the right spot for workable waves this morning. dissapointing, since yesterday evening was so fun. forecast not looking too hot for this weekend either. bah!

sunset shredfest

the best after work session in recent memory, for sure. paddled out down near moraga with ramin. tosh was out there too. sandbar working well, waves were holding up making for fast and fairly long rides. one wave i managed to catch without even paddling, it just pushed me and i hopped to my feet. the camera batteries were dead so i didn't get too many shots, but i got a good little sequence of ramin on a right.
