We are still in winter gear here. Starting ti ditch the 7mills and get down to thinner booties and gloves. Hood's are pulled back. Could get away with a 4/3 or even a 3/2. I do this same dance every year. It's getting warmer but i just surfed all winter in a 5/4. Im used to it. When i start feeling it's too much, I'll drop. Until then I'l just stick it out. No rush. Was a foggy morning. Mid tide heading towards high. Buoy was showing a little somthing. Could of gone either way. Only way to know is to go so i gave it a look. Through the fog it was hard to see but there was a wave. A bit soft. Thigh high with some waist high guys. Took out the 5'2 mini sims. It was fun. With the tide filling in some would look good but back off, some stood up pretty nice and further outside then the rest. Which was difficult with the fog. Nothing epic but me and a buddy caught a few which was enough. Favorite wave was a right. It was a rare one with some wall to it. Dropped in and went right into a cruisey carving top turn/ cut back sort of thing, then just flew down the line. Front foot inching towards a cheater five but didn't quite get there, rest of the body leaning back with both hands dragging doing my best to pretend i was getting barreled. Kicked out and said to my buddy "who said you can't get barreled on a 2 footer? Whoever it was.... he was right". Nothing special but i had fun. I almost died thursday. Legit. Sketchy electrical work in an old restaurant that's being renovated. Got rocked by the "dead man's leg" because some douche thought it would be a good idea to flip breakers while people were working. Was feeling terrible the past few days. Felt better this AM. After the fun surf, i feel like myself again. Some fun waves was just what the doctor ordered.
