another thing I might add is dont surf near a rain water drain pipe aswell. The rain water that comes out of them comes from the runoff from the streets aswell and some sewer run off aswell. Surfing by them in heavy rains will make you sick . also get a neti pop or netti bottle and rinse you sinuses out after your session when u get home . It will help with getting sinus infections
I agree with this psychology Matt. I'm leaning toward going out today. My first ever rain session
assuming that you are real, i will offer you some fatherly advice..if you have this much fear about surfing, you probably need to take up golf. what we do is dangerous. all it takes is one wrong fall on a knee high wave and you are paralyzed. if you can put that stuff out of your head, you will be fine. if you can't, move along.
Totally agree with Matt! If it doesnt feel right, dont go out or go ahead and paddle in. I was surfing in Bodega Bay north of San Francisco. Great White heaven and your surfing with sea lions. Scary place being a part of the food chain.. anyway....a sea lion paddled up and barked at me. I figured he was telling me its lunch time and I should get out of the water. Next day I heard a sponger got nibbled on.
