Description:

Went down to San Bartolo on a good 6-8 Ft day. Caught a few waves but they were a little out of my league. Managed to keep the tip up and avoid pearling though. My buddy didn't want to get into the bigger stuff so he just tried to catch a few edges and mostly watch.

I had a lot of problems with my board's grip.  Even with it being well waxed, I had a lot of slippage.  I guess partly due to the hot sun and warmer water.  A number of wipeouts were caused simply by loosing my footing due to slipping.
