monday dawn patrol

rolled out of bed at 5:30, made some coffee and suited up. hit the water just before 6. south winds blowing, but not too hard. surf was jumbled on the inside, but the outer bars were actually a lot of fun. shoulder to head high sets rolling through regularly, and nobody else out except for a few sea lions patrolling. mostly rights, but a few really clean lefts as well. the new board feels good - stuck a few late drops, worked on milking as much speed as i could out of my bottom turn, and was able to find a few nice walled up sections to do some turns and hit a couple of floaters. for a while i got stuck on the inside paddling through a rip, and the current pulled me 2 blocks south. a healthy jog home after a solid 1.5 hour dawn patrol to kick off the week.

cStar maiden voyage

finished sanding my first board last night and took it for a spin today in some choppy sloppy waves at OB. on my first wave i was able to pump down the line and hit a little floater - stoked! really happy with the board so far, it feels intuitive dropping in and bottom turning, pumping down the line, and cutting back. it pretty much goes where I want it to without bogging or pearling, which is all i could really ask for out of my first board. i'm looking forward to testing it out on some punchier waves and longer pointbreaks so i can really get some solid turns in. already looking forward to finishing my next board, which will be more designed for small gutless summer waves.

dredgie wedgie

not as clean as yesterday but good size, lots of fun rides. pulled into a few, but they closed out and i punched through the back. met up with karl and we paddled a little further north to a sandbar that was dredging.

noriega pumping

it was definitely a workout, but some really good waves this morning down at Noriega. Ryan and I both caught a handful of waves, and both had some memorable wipeouts too. The 5'9" quad was definitely not the right board for sticking air drops this AM...tomorrow I'll be on it again with something more practical ;)
