Friday Surprise

I just love it when you set out to go for a casual surf just expecting to get wet and enjoy the workout, and then the waves turn in to something really fun. That happened today.

I surfed the circuit paddling up to the Point and back down to Sergeants where I met up with Dave to try out the 10'4" Angulo SUP. I longboarded all the spots on the way up and back and got a ton of small (2'-3') waves with nice shape. After I SUPed I was passing through GW's on my way out of the water when I caught a nice one there. I ended up staying for another hour and getting some great noserider longboard waves, long makeable sections (most of them anyway) peeling well inside. The Harbour 19 was the perfect call for today.

I stubbed my toe on a piece of lifted cement at the showers and tore a nice chunk of flesh off the end of it. By the time I did wound management, bleeding control and cleaned it up it was too late to take any pics.
