    yeah its tricycle . no I had to check on a few houses for some friends before work , so I really didn't have much time to head all the way down . Had time to take a few photos and bail . plus it was a bit too chilly for my blood that day . Way too chilly .

    So was the current! Notice the lack of good rides? They were peeling a tad fast (most waves). The guy that got the long ride went over some very dangers and shallow rocks toward the end. I wonder if he new they were exposed the hour before. There were 3 good take off spots but you could absolutely not maintain position on any of them due to the extreme side shore current. It would take 1 minute to helplessly drift past all 3 take offs and end up having to take off where long ride guy did (that part of the wave is to soft and dumps you onto rocks). Good rides we're had but, very occasionally. You had to be lucky enough to drift past the right spot at the right time, or get out and walk back up the beach and try your luck at timing it again. The waves were pretty though.

    I'm not crying, just clarifying and filling in the important details. John doesn't seem mind having you guys think it was comparable to a flawless reef pass in Indo.

    sideshore currents are a myth there are only surfers that lack the ability to paddle fast enough.

    Untrue, IMO. Strong sideshore currents have a real impact on wave quality especially if you are surfing near jetties or groins, but even on open beach break. Above a certain number of knots, the current alone puts a LOT of texture on the wave face, makes the barrels a lot less makeable, at least any drifty places I've surfed.

    With that said, those waves look pretty fun.

    Nice edit John! I just had the best mind surf session ever on those first few clips. Thats something I dream of (Without the snow, frigid water temps, and freezing air.)
