Saturday got to water 7 AM, nuthin (knew it was wishful thinking with outgoing tide anyway). Ran errands went back later.
Almost two hours of consistent stomach high+ fun sets. With a buddy, catching a bunch of waves, talking about the football games to come that day, slight chill in the air.
I do love the fall.
Got a couple of hours of clean waist high surf today, and am working late to make up for it. Definitely sharks mixed in with the other fishies. Mostly of the four foot spinner variety. I took the shortboard out to get my pop ups ready for when it gets big ( tomorrow is October so it is only a matter of a week or so). Too many sessions on the log gets you slow to your feet when you have to switch to the shortie. How does that 6'4" Kechle work? I had a stump fish the same size and it worked great on all kinds of waves.
The cool thing about Florida is that you don't have to worry about the water dipping into the 30's.
Saturday was a blast. But the Jellies OMG they were everywhere. One poor dude duck dived and came up under a bunch of them, had welts all over his face, trunk, swollen eyes, ouch. I gave him vinegar to pour on it. It helped.
The finger mullet were everywhere, even jumped on the long board. Some guy pulled one out of his pocket. It was like wild kingdom out there!
got some decent waves this past weekend. i guess my fall is off to a good start. forecast doesn't look too good for the rest of this week though. i think i'll just go on a week long bender.
