Nice Waves Before the Rain

Clear and clean morning. Paddled out about 8AM. Michael and Mash out at Sarges. Tide coming in and me heading to GW's. Ten waves in the first 30 minutes, stopped counting after that. Learned a couple things. Can switch stance and use the paddle to turn. Nice! Also re paddle management, took a deliberate steep line and straightened out while leaning back on the paddle for balance. Potential to work well. First trace of rain hit at 10:30 or so. Was raining by 4PM. Supposed to clear tonight. Will try to grab a few in the morning. Will post today's pics later.

Nice little WNW swell steady in the water. Actually got hot in my wetsuit. My first dunking felt good. Had to take off my light hood.
