    Yeah, this blows. Had a fun day last week, but mostly just flat.

    It was so hot today, I took a dip in the ocean in my trunks. 66 degrees. Pretty cold. Pretty much just been riding bicycles, riding my other bike and riding my (as I call it) my water bike. And a stationary bike, as well hahaha.

    Still planning an Oahu trip for some point in late July or early August. Has to be two weeks long.

    I surfed the other day, it was pretty small. Really small. Got a few lil ones on the LB. Now not even a ripple but swellinfo says it’s gray and 3ft.

    Early Saturday morning was fun, but smallish. Again it was suppose to be 3ft and gray.

    Beginning of the week had some longboardable waves at mid-to-high tide, the sandbar was working perfectly, nice little clean lines, blue-green water. Used a 7'-0" mini-longboard-hull whatchamajigger, glides perfectly on little waves. Was fun but yesterday that tiny swell eventually faded. It was probably just something to get us through the month. Summer flatness in full effect. Not a complete loss though, as there are tons of eye candy on the beaches

    Made a little edit from the Cosmic Jersey Surf Contest at Manasquan Inlet last Saturday. Conditions were pretty small, but dudes still found a way to rip it. Every heat the contestants would trade off between single fins and twin fins, etc. It had a very cool overall vibe. It's flat so you might as well check it out!

    Finally had some rideable surf today. I went to my favorite reef spot, got there about 30-45 minutes before low tide, wind was supposed to be light SE but as I walked up the boardwalk I felt a stiff onshore breeze with storm clouds sitting offshore.

    I knew it would probably rain any minute, so I just waited for it to pass which only took about 10 minutes, then the wind died down and it turned into a nice day. I surfed for 3 straight hours on the LB, catching wave after wave in the knee - waist range, the larger sets came when the tide started coming in.

    I had fun for what it was, definitely better than another day of flatness. Stoke levels higher today than they were yesterday. My wife had food ready when I got home. She cooked me a breakfast bowl with potato browns, eggs, and bacon topped with green peppers, scallions, and shredded cheddar cheese.

    Now I’m sippin on a Kona Castaway IPA and sitting on the screened patio overlooking the lake enjoying this light rain shower passing through.

    Small weak surf today, but warm weather and water made it nice. Large clueless crowd signifies the official start of Surfing Season.

    Arm was fine, so I'm back in the water. Here's hoping the rest of you lame ducks heal up enough to get back out there too.

    Surfed 4 hours Sunday. Best part - shared a peak with a friend I used to surf with all the time but hadn't seen in close to a year....it seemed like the conversation just picked up right where it left off - I love that. Low tide needed for these small waves, but between 2 hours before low to 2 hours after low it was small fun. Surfed first two hours on the longboard, then the incoming tide pulsed things up a but and surfed another two on the 5'8" mini simmons plank. That board makes surfing soft two foot waves a blast. Water temps in the mid 70s. Full on summer conditions. Shot these around 2 p.m. Everyone was having a blast.

    Got some 3-5' yesterday at the spot, this S swell kind of overpromised and underdelivered as usual. Got a few fun ones!

    Got some fun surf this morning, swell out of the SW running 3'@20 seconds. Couple of long-ish lulls with some fairly strong head high+ sets. Most forecasts were calling for morning onshores, but it was clean and glassy. Not perfect, but punchy and fun.

    Unfortunately, I hadn't realized for almost a week that my daily driver suffered some damage from last week's clown show. Some guy on a big board ditched it and let his leash foink it back to him as he bailed out near where I was paddling out. I duck dived and thought I had escaped, flipping the board over a couple of times to give it a cursory examination. Didn't see it then, but found a major fin gash next to my front fin box. De-lammed some glass over the fin box too.

    So rode the backup today and still had fun. Daily driver is in the man cave getting the attention she deserves.

    here's to my EC brothers scoring some decent surf again soon
