    sups tend to show up 2 or 3 days and then go away forever.

    Which, actually, was not positive. Because he was pretty much a diiick regarding set waves. He'd catch a set wave from way out back, finish his ride & oar back out, past even the longboard guys. Then he'd jump on the next set wave. Repeat, ad nauseum. With 3.5 @ 13 secs, he could, and did, make that wave-catching frequency happen. No one else had a shot.

    Coupla dudes started making noises, grumbling, but the kid moved down the line a bit so nothing happened.

    If this is the future, and I suppose it is, there will be blood.
    Same sh!t happened to me around 5PMish where I was at. Lineup was packed all day at one point topping 35 people, it finally thinned out and unbelievably it was just me, my buddy and two other chill guys on shortboards when SUPkook 1 and SUPkook two decided to paddle out. SUPkook 1 looked like Laird Hamilton plus 30 years and in all respects could rip, but both these clowns took every single set wave when they came out and was timed so perfectly that we didn't stand a chance. I debated on trying to snag one but decided against risking my head possibly being taken off. Once they left the crowd came back out. Still got a lot of fun ones, snaked a few people who kept dropping in on everyone, and launched the biggest airs on one of my kick outs. Not an epic day by any means, but most def awesomely fun. Surfed from 9am to like 730pm and slept like a baby.

    And Seldom & Sniffer, got some decent ones in your guys names as well!

    Ya know, I'm all about people ripping on anything, and I'm a mellow dude, but I recently had some SUP issues at my go to, and had to tell them to get the F out...not this swell, a cpl weeks back, but it was a real safety issue. And this spot is a distinct sponge/SB wave, really not conducive to SUP'ing. That zig-zagging through the lineup is complete BS.

    Scored Sunday through Tue on IOP. Sunday and Monday were great. T-storms both days kept the touristas off the Beach and kooks out of the water. That thinned the crowd and left plenty-o sweet rides for yours truly.

    Had the longboard humming. Unfortunately, on what was the last ride of the day Mon. something major blew out in my left thigh. Barely made the pop up. The mind was telling me to bail, the rest of me said, Go for it...that leg will heal! I could barely walk back to the truck but I was still smiling.

    Lots of ice and heat treatment and I was still a hurtin' pup on Tue. My wife was worried because it was her birthday and there were waves. Can the Old Man rally? BTW Happy B-day to you too Y.

    Of course there was no way I was gonna let her down. We paddled out into some awesome Birthday waves for her. I mostly bided my time and picked off three freight trains. The leg was holding up but each pop up re-aggravated the injury. I was jealous of the healthy, but luckily had had my fill over the previous days.

    It was really crowded and I felt increasingly in the way. I got out and watched from the safety of the beach as the tribe went off. It was fun watching from the shore as my wife, my bud's, and even "that guy" score ride after ride!

    It is great to see that Bertha delivered some goodies to all us kiddies. Still limping from that Lady, but as I read your stories and reflect on my own sessions, all I can say is...

    Good stuff brother. Get well soon. Looks like plenty of time to heal during the flatness until the next hype trail rolls through.

    Is Chiba City the same as Chucktown? I'm trying to brush up on my southern vernacular. I just figured out "BO" a couple months ago.

    Sorry to hear that, buddy. Hope it heals fast. You won't be missing much this weekend, just some logging days.
