The forecast called for ankle-knee highs but I was surprised to find plenty of fun stuff. I`d dusted off the longboard and had more fun than I deserve. Grateful for the beautiful morning.

Autumn Friday

I missed out on yesterdays fun, but made up for it this morning, the high tide made for a kinder, gentler session but still great fun on a gorgeous day.

Time change

Daylight savings time can end any day now as far as I`m concerned. Cold and grey this AM with headlights still on at 7am. The weatherman teases with talk of warming trend and offshore potential later in the week.

October afternoon

Not much surf but wanted to get out anyway just to wash off the stress, an hour of this and I felt much better

Still big swell in the water but not very user-friendly, lot`s of walls with enough side current to carry you from 56th to the Huntington pier.

Harvest time

It pays to have a flexible work schedule this time of year so you can get out on days like this!

Not much surf this morning, but great conditions and 95 degrees in town said "go surf"

fat moon

Warm pre-dawn darkness, fat full moon setting at the west end of my street, I called it a "late start " day at work and got a few waves early. Fully blessed by a beautiful morning. ( Surf was inconsistent and fading on the rising tide.

A goood start to another beautiful day, surf was weaker and the swell is dropping out but I still have to be grateful for mornings like this.

Morning Glory

Amazing October morning, so beautifully created, so grateful to just be in the water. The light crowd, good combo swell, and light offshores were a bonus. I even got a nice left barrel. Thanks Lord!

Friday 10.7.11

Slow at work, sunny warm day, surf report sounded promising so I blew the day off and went surfing. Good for the mental health.

rain day

Rain and winds all morning while working, called it a "rain day" at lunch, only to have the sun come out and the winds lay down. I made the best of the situation.

Change of scene

Left Newports fading swell and redtide diarrhea for a couple days in the Sierra with my Dad. I really like to visit up here but will be back in the water Monday
