Since we are no longer allowed to talk about anything other than topics related to surfing, I tried to figure out what to post since you can talk about board design, fins, wetsuits, and where to stay in Puerto Rico only so much before I want to smash myself in the junk with a hammer. So here goes: Guys have talked about keeping journals of surf sessions. As boring as it may sound, I will start posting my VERY DETAILED accounts of my sessions. Big and small. Feel free to throw your own detailed session description in. Love to hear about them. Date: Sunday January 27th, 2014 Time: Low Tide ish, about 9:30 Where; The Chavez family low-tide sandbar. Located somewhere South of Ocean City NJ and North of Avalon, NJ. Who: Chavez, Chavez's bro-in-law (dumb-a$$ married my sister), Middle Chavez son (Age 15), Chavez's nephew (Age 15) Conditions: Knee high, waist high at best but nice clean lines. Water Temp in the 35-38 range. Winds light out of the west. Air temp: Upper teens low 20s I reckon. Boards: All on longboards except me. I rode a 7 foot hybrid. Suits: All in 5/4/3 wit hoods. All in 7mil boots except me in 5mil (I was fine). All in 5 mil gloves or mittens. Length of session: Bout 2 hours. Why go on such a small day when it's so cold?: Cabin Fever. The night before, when Momma Chavez rang the dinner bell (texting the lads to get their collective a$$es home to eat), no one responded. It fell upon yours truly to go out and find the little [email protected] To the woods I went. Following the sounds of neighborhood youth and the sound of my nephew's ATV, I came upon said nephew and middle Chavez son, both 15, towing smallest Chavez (Age 7) behind the ATV in a brushy clearing. They weren't towing him on a sled, or an inner-tube, or a piece of plastic, they were DRAGGING him. He thought it was great, getting to hang with the big guys. After numerous ideas for administering a$$-kickings to the guilty youths passed through my mind, I decided that a surf the next day would be a better way to occupy their simple brains. Quote of the session: 'Dad you could lose some weight, you look like a walrus doing a trick at Sea World when you rode that last wave." Nephew to my bro-in-law.
