Springtime Longboard SUP Session

Tuesday May 1, 2012 - Grabbed a few waves this afternoon in a small, small south swell. It was just one of those beautiful Spring days when the sun was out, the wind was light out of the south and the sea surface glassy inside the kelp beds. Two SUP surfers out when I paddled into the line-up, one of whom had been surfing for a while. He left shortly and it was just me and Stan. Between the two of us we probably caught 60 SUP-specific waves, waves perfect for SUPs but no lay down surfers wanting any of the probably too small for them action. The right waves put up some fast nose riding sections inside, over the shallows where sand and chunks of rock lurked just beneath the surface. 100% fun.
