Coincidentally, I overdrafted today and have some bills due by fri. I only get to go when the forecast makes the drive worth it and that I can actually afford the gas. Someone in the past mentioned I was a rich A$$ prick on the forum, but never knew I shaped my own boards, bought previous year closeout wetsuits, bike to local break, and carpool to EC to save coin and surf more! (guilty of spoilin myself with poly thermal rash gaurd n shorts tho )
Anyways, I don't wanna spoil anything, but hope swell and money issues come together. If not, there will be another swell and money for gas in the future... Oh, and my mansion overlookin reef road.
Until then, Im goin out b4 work for leftovers tomorrow (wed) 36 deg @ 7am. Heater in the car will be better than the one on the bike, so drivin. Anyone else?
i gots car troubles and have to take it in this am
went out at 2 yesterday with the wind. me being the begginner that i am found my head on a swivel lookin for a wave.
paddle out north of northern most pier and by the time i got outside, (or almost outside) was at the 2nd pier threatning to touch that thing. so came in between piers and its like theres 2 kids hopping on a water bed.
so i did about 1 hr of floating and paddling yesterday with 1 wave i rode on knees (bunking bronco kook style) for 10 seconds.
i dont think ill be hittin that **** nemore unless its 50 with little to no wind. i cant learn nothing from wave action like that.
on a side note i got to try out my new hoodie my girl sewed up for me. works great.
so im the guy who looks like a rooster out there with the red spikes comin out of the top of hoodie. its pretty ****in cool.
so yeah i was the floating rooster. only 2 other guys out when i was there.
yea, its been 4 days in a row Ive had ice on my truck in the AM...
sorry, but I live in FL to stay warm, I dont even consider getting wet if there is ice everywhere and its not bare minimum of headhigh
Was surfing @ 715 today.... gloves/booties/hood/thermal layers/hot water jugs made it possible. Rode the alaia and had an amazing 1h 1/2 session. Never got my face or hair wet, It wouldve made it miserable. Overall, a very nice way to start the day. Nothin got numb!
Didn't see any roosters @ the pier yesterday when i drove by... just make sure to leave the bread and pickles at home, the bull sharks have a thing for chick fil a
I did get 1/2 a barb of a stingray out of my wetsuit and booties tho. Gotta love lido
