When I got out I followed the sound to find this burly, bearded Irish dude... kilt and all... standing on the rocks, blowing his heart out... just letting it rip into the fog... like he was pining for home.

    THAT was cool...
    This is too ridiculous to be made up. Did you say anything to him? That sounds pretty unreal, I would have been stoked!

    Nice chest to head high lines, sunny and light offshores. But most important was the friendly vibe in the water. Plenty of stoke to go around. Makes me happy to be alive... and a surfer.

    If this is a true story then it's pretty bad ass, sounds like something out of a dream

    That is awesome. Not only am I jealous of this story, I am jealous of all of you that scored the last couple of days. Doesn't get much better than clean chest high fall surf and light crowds. I could tell there was something nice rolling through while on the ferry Wednesday.
