Description:

Today was one of those day where I was on my game.  Maybe it was surfing with a group of friends again, maybe its just karma from working hard at home and at work.

Tide was pushing for high, in off the steps at Gwithers and over to play on Gillock rock, sucking little shoulder high waves which reformed on the inside if you could continue the motion - caught a couple there then moved across to the next peak - a perfect reeling right hander!  I caught so many there I have difficulties remembering one specific ride.  I know I was nose riding, pulling fat cutties and off the tops and on a few waves I even managed 2 floaters per wave (unheard of usually at Gwithers).  Pulled a HUGE floater over my buddy Mede (sorry dude!).  I landed so many moves and just burnt myself out.  I'll be smiling for a day or two over that session.
