Even though it was thigh-waist high and weak it felt incredible to paddle out today because as every Long Island surfer knows today is when we get out beaches back No more being stuck in the bullpen no more lifeguards no more being charged to get onto to the beach I love the day after Labor Day
I almost didn't paddle out this morning. High tide and onshore winds weren't exactly making conditions ideal but I saw a post by PJB saying something along the lines of it being good karma paddling out the day after labor day. I felt inspired, I had fun despite conditions with only 4 other guys out. Tomorrow looks even better. Here's to fall
Got out at lunchtime for an hour. Glassy and mostly ankle slappers but managed to catch a couple "rogue" 1.5 footers. Still, it was good to get out. Already the beach crews were out removing the lifeguard stands.
