    Magic Carpet Rides

    Weekend of the cleanest waves. Offshores and glass nonstop. Perfect weather and beaches were full. Lineups weren't though and it blew my mind. Swell started big on Saturday AM then declined steadily but not before I got 2 sessions in each day. Taught an earth-loving wahine how to paddle and place herself in good waves last night during the sunset sesh and her permagrin was refreshing as another's stoke energizes our own.

    Rode my HPSB, rode my fish and rode my midlength. Duck diving was so easy in the glass and zero harshness. Trunked it in 59F for an hour at the 5pm sesh today and even though I did so 5 days ago in the Gulf of Mex it was amazing to trunk it back home again. Let the spring of stoke continue and I can barely remember what board I rode each session let alone specific rides. Elevating my surfing every time out there now and it's rewarding.

    Who else scored?

    EMass-- Scored sunset sesh Saturday at the usual spot. Waist-Chest+, clean, very fun, somewhat mellow. It was more conducive to working on "in wave" technique as opposed to that mentioned outstanding long period swell two weeks ago that was more about surviving much larger drops and getting out before closure (which obviously is a technique/skill set in itself).

    Yo's, how aboots leaving at least one surf go undocumented on the internet?

    This past weekend was so not worthy of internet documentation.

    Why trunk 59 F water? Why? This ain't Santa Cruz in 1955. Put your wetsuit on white boy.

    Those white people, man...... "They" got problems. "Those" people, I'll tell you (you see how I linked that back to the "Why don't Negroes surf" thread......f'ing brilliant, man. So now somebody's got to complain aboot white people being referred to as "them" and "those")

    It was big on Saturday? What 8-10' ? Even on the less exposed north and/or south shores? Wow, b!tchen, man.

    Tell that earth-loving "wahine" (man, you are just like Dog the Bounty Hunter with the Hawaii-speak) to go do some yoga and eat some kale.

    Yo, Spicoli, (wink, wink) she touch it?

    Ahh, Spicoli, I'm such a dink, dude. Someone's got to be.

    Got out Saturday and Sunday... fish and log, respectively. Gotta say, though, that the wave of the day on Sunday went to my daughter... a clean shoulder high (on her) peeler that went for about 60 yards with her slotted in the pocket for about half the ride. Made my day...

    Yes c3dog!! Fully agreed. I was really able to work on down the line pumping more this weekend than ever. Correct on the previous swell with it being all about nailing the steep and air drops. To be honest, I'm much better at that than in wave tech, simply because we get more frequent bigger drop waves than we seem to get the glassy ramps. Also, until I'm consistently getting in the high line I'm probably running possible ramps into straight drops. It's all about taking my Carver muscle memory and bringing it to the wave which happens more by the day.
