Actually I just moved over to Chatties. Its a bit more warm inside with a tinge less barfly motif.
Think of us as your mean older brother that teaches u the hard way...we have given u a lot of invaluable advice thru tough love. Good luck to ya. Also u better not be wearing a 4/3 or Im gonna kick your a$$!
Were you the guy with super short hair wearing boots that changed from his 4/3 to his 3/2 on Sunday, wearing boots? I saw same guy out today putting on his boots next to a black chair on the beach.
Or were you there early morning?
On Sunday I went early in a.m. and at 4ish p.m. Today we didn't surf and just walked the beach to catch one of the most wonderous site...a family of dolphins, around six, all playing and unbelievably, SURFING! They really looked to be surfing, sometimes jump clear of the water. Sometimes it looked like they competed for a spot in the swell and more than once all six caught a wave tightly together! I could see them clearly within the wave faces. It was just a vision ords can't relate to. I felt so lucky to see them playing for at least a half hour in the same spot. I LOVE surfing!
That was me. Tell me you were the guy that said, "I'm waiting until later, it's too epic for me right now."
By the way, if you charged yesterday, I'll give you a few props. There were a few pounding overhead closeouts Sunday morning. After a couple rides and eating a crap sandwich combined with the freezing air temp I had enough for the day.
Nice progress report. Dolphins definitely surf. I once shared a wave with one down on OBX. He shoulder hopped on my wave, but it was cool, it was a really long wall, and he was 20-30 yards ahead of me.
Paddling tip: watch for sets, wait for a lull, paddle like hell. I've paddled out with dry hair on overhead days.
