I actually dusted off ole yeller: my Orion shortboard. It was so easy to turn. I forgot what it was like being able to snap a turn. It is now 1-2 foot solid Hawaiian scale surf, and it was fun riding something not boatwake. My shoulders feel good. Maybe I can handle a solid 3-5 foot Hawaiian scale swell soon. Time will tell. Maybe the Miami Dolphins will make the playoffs. Who knows. The season is full of hope and promise.
