2nd shot

Today was just too nice to not go back down and get in the water, the tide had helped some. still weak, but it was good to get wet and get some exercise in nice surroundings

San Blas,Nayarit 1980

Took the morning off to surf but the south wind had it hacked early, small and crumbly. Makes me wish I could go somewhere warm for a few days,like these old scrapbook shots

go long

I made time to surf this morning but didn`t get out there. Morning bump on small windswell wasn`t exciting. It got better when the tide filled in but I was working by then. I`ll try again tomorrow.

pretty day

The day started pretty cold, but no wind blowing and the windswell cleaned up a bit. I had to get to the jobsite this AM and was unable to surf early. The west wind was on it by the time I got back.

President Obama comes to town

Just a few hundred in the lot outside, some knuckleheads looking to get in front of a camera, listened to the town hall on a radio. It was fun, it`s not everyday the President comes to town,

springtime

Finally got back in the water today. The swell is dropping but still had plenty of waves and the mid-morning crowd was managable. I surfed an hour, then rinsed my feet in a puddle, dried with a damp towel, combed my hair with a wax comb and headed back to work!

Today...

Today didn`t look anything like this picture. Cold, gray , weak , dribbly are just a few of the adjectives that apply to todays surf. I`m going to Colorado for a few days and will miss the south swell coming in. I hope it lasts to Monday.

Things were weak and jumbled this morning. The wind will be on it before I can get away from the job so no surf today. It was a pretty sunrise.
