    Do you surf after a rain?

    Just wondering. If so, why and where? If not, why and where?

    the water was nasty out there today. A few gems to be had, but mostly overhead slop, which is fun when you're in 75 degree water. But yes, waiting for that potential infection to come on after today's sess is not fun, but so far, no signs of it.




    Now I know why your local shapers deserve every penny they ask for with ordering a custom board. Trying my hand at it tonight, designing my own board in my basement. Andrew and Brian down at GreenLight have been more than helpful with offering tips during the process when I ask.

    Looking forward to an offshore DP in 5 hours to wash off all this foam dust

    Before, during and after........my area doesnt have issues like many places with lots of runoff. If there is some that I'm not aware of it's never affected me with any medical issues.

    No way...

    ....the water is too slippery after a rain. If you're worried about infections i'm sure you can dry out your ear and there has to be some over the counter medicine for swimmers ear you could apply after being in the water as a precaution.

    Some info:
