Two Board Session

Surfed the six-foot quad fish and the 9'10" Harbour 19 noserider this morning. Funny how I couldn't get off the noserider last year, and this year you've got to pry the quad fish out of my grasping fingers.

Wave size dropped a bit, but bigger on the somewhat inconsistent sets. Quality suffered a bit today too from yesterday, but there were still plenty of waves to be had. Between the two boards I bagged over 30 waves. (It's not how long you're out, it's how many waves you get.) Crowds were minimal (one of the factors allowing for the high wave count). I surfed Roots by myself until I went for the big board. Then surfed Eights for an hour and a half with only eight others. Primo!

Forecasters are calling for the waves to decrease as the week progresses.
