Front door to water in about 20 minutes, try to get out about 2x a week. It's funny that 20 minutes for me is still kind of a drag, especially in winter to add time for changing in and out of a wetsuit, but someone always has it worse. I couldn't imagine wanting to surf and being 2 hours away, the anticipation during the drive would kill me.
how was everyone's commute today? took me awhile to find a good spot. Most places were big and heavy breaking right on the beach, saw a guy get caught inside and have his board snapped in two at one spot
I count the days I don't surf, rather than the one's I do. I've missed 2 days in the last month. Both of them were weekdays after work and it was a scenario were my wife (stay at home mom) said, "Could you please not go surfing and take care of the kid this evening?" There was some reciprocity involved (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). Can't wait until that kid's old enough to surf. You'd think a woman who's father has been shaping boards for 40 odd years would have the bug, but no. Hope it only skipped a generation and it's not some odd mutation on the X chromosome. My commute is 25-30 minutes from work back to the coast and from there .5 miles North to a killer beach break (which I hardly ever surf) and .5 mile South to a great reef (which I always surf). I'm actually closer to the beach than that, as the crow flies. If I'm feelin' ballsy, I throw some boards on the racks and some friends in the back and we Fred Flinstone up to Trestles. Oside has its moments too. So does IB when there's not not a giant sewage spill.
