    Weddings and Waves!

    I got some Sunday. I had to fish 1st. Just had to OK? There were outside bombs where I was. After some short fish I rolled up to the surf spot. Surf crew said I need help. Can you believe that? these guys would miss their kids wedding for good surf.

    Got a couple of 1/2 way decent rides. You had to be real quick on the drop to get into the great waves. I couldn't get it done. I'm in surfcasting shape ( beer belly). Saw a few friends get some nice ones though. Wind picked up mid morning. Water was warm still and there was no crowd.

    Home in time for the Giant game. The weather was foul and there was chili and wings. And Beer. Yeah I know.

    Hey y'all. Glad to see the forum is still chugging along.

    Worst October for surf that I can remember. Maybe 2-3 days of OK surf? There was one October in my formative years where there was decent waves every day. November is shaping up though with that weird tropical event.

    Surfed in board shorts 2 weeks ago with just a UV top. Today I woke up with air temps in the 30s. Water is still upper 60s though, and crystal blue.

    Great photos and stories as always fellers. Slide on.

    Ditched out of the office for a few hours today around lunch time. Surf was firing. Head high and offshore. Rode a new board for the first time with favorable results. Life is good.

    Smallish, bumpy south swell yesterday after work. OK on the log, but it was definitely better earlier in the day, and further south. Oh well... take what you can get.

    I've been out of the water the past couple of weeks after a seemingly minor bicycle crash. Picked up some road rash that has been incredibly slow to heal. Its been 17 days and still not healed enough to put a wetsuit on and bend the knee. :(

    Without a doubt I had my best session so far of 2023 last night. Paddled out at the jetty down the street from my house at 3:00 and surfed this glassy waist high peak all alone until dark. There were very few waves coming in but the ones I was getting were really fun. Had there even been one other person in the water there wouldn't have been enough waves.

    One of the cool things about surfing in January and February is the different wildlife you only see that time of year. Seals and different birds. Yesterday there were two kinds of birds hanging around the jetty that I've never seen before that I can recall. The first was a flock of about 20 Long Tailed Ducks that hung out at the end of the jetty. The males are really impressive. The second hanging out tight to the rocks on the inside and not the least bit afraid of me was a dozen Bonaparte's Gulls. Tiny gull about the size of a mourning dove with very distinctive markings. When I'd paddle back out next to the rocks they would let me get inside 10 feet of them. Looked both up and pictures are attached.
