Longboard Heaven

The west windswell filled in as the south began to fade out. This made for some excellent and consistent shoulder high combers that were made for the enjoyment of loggers. And enjoy them they did. I chose to ride the Freeline quad fish at Roots as the tide was right and there was an abundance of pitching lips and zips that made for challenging if not short rides into the beach with a short paddle back out. This series of swells began late last week and has provided generously to all practitioners. The abundance of waves and the improving weather are more than just compensation for the previous gloominess. You go girl!
