More Sick Mushburgers

Tuesday, July 14
Almost the complete lack of any kind of swell, along with the still winds conspired to dish up the sickest day of mushburgers yet. Me and the ShitStorm were up to the challenge. Today I pulled the two side fins (you need a big-ass screwdriver to do it) and used the SS as my alaia training board. I lasted about a half hour and at best could only succeed in making the board go straight. Of course I had visions of me pulling 360's like the big boys, but all I could do was a 90, monkey gripping the soft deck with my toes while sliding sideways in the mush before catching a rail and flipping over. But who cares, once again it was warm and sunny...even the water was more or less warm with lot's of folks trunkin' it. After a while I screwed the funny little middle fin back in and had another hour of fun in mushburger heaven.

Paul was sitting on the beach taking it all in and watching his super-grom longboarder son Will mauling the mushburgers on his yellow mush crusher. 'Course he had to give me the bidness for wearing my wetsuit, a black blob floating in a sea salted with whiteys. As soon as you change the spelling of NorCal to H-a-w-a-i-i I'll ditch my wettie.
