saturday evening session at the lane

had a busy day on saturday. went up to marin to watch jon run a 20k trail run in the morning, and totally goofed and didn't bring a board because i thought the waves would be small but the southern energy in the water filled in nicely up there. i'll post a few pics later, but for now i want to get up some pics of my evening session at Steamer Lane. It was surprisingly uncrowded, only a handful of guys fighting for waves at the slot, and then a few loggers milking the softer middle peak sets. I only had an hour to surf, so tried to maximize my wave count by sitting on the inside of the slot, catching whatever leftovers came through and the odd wave that would swing wide and run through to indicators. Got a couple of nice longish rides, but more often than not I ended up scratching into the closeouts that nobody else was going for. The backwash off of the cliff made the drops steep and bouncy, so I pearled a few times too, which is always fun in front of all the hecklers on the cliff. joanie graciously took some pics, even though I knew she was cold. I kept the session pretty brief and we headed to New Brighton to set up camp before it got too dark.
