    Last Friday was fun. Had the day off and my surf buddy did too. Caught some good rides in the morning on waves that were kinda like clean chop due to multiple swells in the water. Took a break around high tide and came back for a few more hours in the afternoon when it was smaller but better lined up. Sunday was power chop for a few hours in the morning until the wind got to be too much around noon. Flat now waiting on the swell that Betty is hyping for this weekend.

    It was eerie surfing as a serious fog bank rolled in. Fog horns from passing ships only lent to the macabre sensation. You couldn't see the waves well enough to judge, so we just relied on sound. If you could hear something promising heading your way, you just turned and went for it. Prayer and a wing kinda thing. Some crazy drop ins when you aren't sure what the hell is going on! As a few other lost souls were sharing in the revelry, you really had to be aware of your surroundings.

    Glad some of y'all got some too.
    Good one WBF! Sounds like that should be the opening scene of Sharknado 2015.

    Haha. It was fun if not a little creepy, I always try to ignore what might be lurking below.

    P.S. PJ4060, Prank is my lovely wife and surf buddy. Sorry, no pics fellows.

    I had a similar sesh Monday. Kind of warm, longboarding with a low tide. Long ledgy rides. I had fun and it looks like the sandbar is coming back outside and midbreak. People always paddle out where I am with your fail but hey were cool.

    I wore an unsealed 4/3 with busted booties and gloves and had a blast. The lighter gear and no hood was nice. Fades nose ride to turn is always fun but that's longboarding. I don't usually ride them until I have no other option. Probably could have short boarded but I didn't.

    I was out of town so missed some surfing opportunities. Btw, did you see that buoy jump up over night Monday night in vb? Total crap. No wind and 5 feet of swell.

    Bring on the winds. Every asshole withy a surfboard is gonna be surfing in vb tomorrow. If you hit my board then check yourself honky.

    It's kinda nice people can't read buoys due to a lack of natural selection since it's totally idiocracy and everyone is dumber. Dumb people honk they are so smart, don't they?

    My prediction...I will find a mediocre bar by myself and some waste of semen will paddle next to me with his crew that sucks but think they are sweet but they are not. They go when it's green on Surfline. Effing posers man. I'm all about sharing stoke but not next to me. Can't even be nice about it. Sad really...

    I surfed last weekend. The reefbreak was too high tide, so I chose my couch potato. Managed to get several waves (barely), even though there were 15-20 people at the peak. My head was past the nose of the board to get that thing to go...but it worked.

    Discovered an small inside reef break that was bowling over a super shallow rock...then, the wave reels over about a foot of water the whole way (only other people surfing there were a couple groms, but the wave is solid). Sketchy, but I got a bunch of solid turns and didn't scrape my fins...until I was getting out near the "beach" (not too bad). Couch potato has no rocker, so I pearled hard on a couple take-offs. I'll use a different board there next time. Super fun sesh.

    Monday night, I paddled out with a buddy. Besides the rainy and foggy conditions we were quite happy to see some head high sets with no wind on it after the rain. When the weather is bad i guess no one wants to surf besides myself and a few friends.

    Got out 3 times last week and 1 time so far this week Sunday was a gift predicted winds 20 mph or so but it never blew harder than 10 and although some swell / wind swell mix in the water is was a great day . Took out my 7.0 fun shape and the torque 8.0 to grab those smaller waves and extend some fun rides nothing spectacular but the best part was no crowds and met some cool people just as excited as I was to score on a day you just take a chance,. Anyway that's all I got.
