Swell Fading But Plenty Waves

I stretched and warmed up in the barely light pre-dawn. Paddled out with enough light to dodge the kelp beds which were in relief due to the lower tide. Pulled over to GW's when it was almost bright enough to see and stroked into my first of twelve for the morning. Kelp forest did it's best to knock me off, succeeding several times. A couple nice sets came through. Three footers at most but with enough room to take the high line and stay out of the kelp stalks. (They try to rip the paddle out of your hands too.) I got a couple nice zippers, very fast with steep sections. The Angulo found the track and took off at high speed. Sweet! Andy and a fellow Angulonian went out as I was coming in. Pics of them. Warm offshore winds and temps today. Wx just about as good as it gets.
