sunset session

racy low tide peaks at sunset. caught a handful of workable lefts as well as some decent rights that afforded a few clean cutbacks and one respectable floater. have lots of pics to upload from the rip curl pro too, another post another time. work to finish...

flying fish

been riding the 5'6" fish setup as a thruster for my last few sessions and it's been really fun. not quite as fast but a lot more control than the quad setup when linking turns, less slipping and sliding through cutbacks. had a really fun session this morning, waves were small but punchy and lined up. i was catching a lot of long rides and in a pretty good rhythm. my last wave of the session was a beaut, took off behind the peak and bottom turned around the first section, hit a snappy turn off the top and then a smooth cutback. it continued to wall up pretty steep and i raced down the line towards the closeout and popped a clean frontside air and actually tweaked it out a little, landing in the flats before falling. i wouldn't say i stomped it, i definitely didn't ride out clean, but nonetheless it was a really good ride for me. fingers crossed for some more launch ramps at OB tomorrow morning.

one day i'll be able to boost like this....riiiight

daycare dawn patrol

We've had a fun few days of weather and small but fun waves at OB, so today for the first time I surfed after dropping Kirra off at daycare. Daycare is conveniently located at 48th and Rivera, just a block from the beach and a quality sandbar serving up some shoulder high peaks. I was the only one out for the first half hour before 2 other guys joined the lineup. By that point it started getting a little textured, so I rode one in to the beach and headed to work. It was a short session, but I had 4 or 5 decent rides and it's just nice to be out in the water getting some exercise.

new years eve @OB

playful surf to cap off good year - soft peaks and easy drops with the occasional head high wall to carve, and some fun crossed up sections on the inside.
