sounds like u went out too early.i was out from 730 to 830pm basically til it got dark,maybe 9.went back and watched fireworks off the pier.best 4th of july I can remember.waves were about 7ft mutant slabs with some crazy barrels at my spot.it was going off.youll get a big 6 wave set,then a long lull and it kept getting bigger and better the later.i monitored the cane all day long and definitely picked the best time to go out during the peak
Southern moco was bombing from 5-6pm. Study the underwater topography and youll learn why northern moco doesn't get the long period stuff.
paddled out; no one around.
VERY LARGE SETS.
waiting for one i glance at the shore…
theres forty people standing watching me…(??)
then i figure it out.
in the moment of 'thrill of victory' or agony of defeat…
they were watching to see if i would hurt myself.
i paddled in without catching one.
That's funny, and HONEST! Next time, go way out on the shoulder where it's kinda safe, drop in and do a big ol fat bottom turn, throwin water 20 feet in the air, go right up that wave and over the back while you pump both fists in the air... then paddle in. <LOL> Been there dude... Worked for me.
thanks for the advice paulie. i will say it was one of my odder sessions. hope the
next storm makes up for it.
