Been awhile

I haven’t surfed in a while. I’ve been busy with gigs, spent a week in Yosemite, and had more gigs. Today I finally paddled out at Bolsa Chica. Caught nine waves on the Palaoa. Water is perfect temperature. Like a bathtub. My total wave count on this board is 39 waves. We hung out and grilled some fish and steaks afterwards.

New used longboard

I bought a longboard from a guy on Craigslist today for $200. He sold it so cheaply because he was in the Coast Guard and they were shipping him out this week.

The board is an Outer Island.
9’3″ x 23″ x 3 1/8″

It is set up with a 7″ cutaway and side bites. This is a fin set up which is foreign to me. But I took it out in some evening slop and I like the way it felt. I was surprised. It was a bit squirrley but it felt loose and sort of fun. I’m going to stay with this fin system for at least another 50 waves.

I surfed Bolsa

I’ve had a cold the past week. Sneezing a lot. I feel better now. Surf tomorrow? Hope so.
