Update: Yesterday was classic! Combo shoulder high swells and stiff offshore Santa Ana's holding up the lip for some really great walls. Was sitting outside and picked off the wave of the morning, a clean head high peak.
Came off the bottom, carved off the top and set up three or four, big, lazy, climb and drops, coming down with the curl, the wind holding up the wall in front!
Easter Parade: Fun session early Easter Sunday morning, Northside Seal Pier. Dead low tide with a mix of fading NW and building S swells. Waist to shoulder with a few head high peaks on the sets, glassy conditions and only a handfull of guys out.
Caught a couple of really nice, fast movers! Barely made a good set wave on a late takeoff with a high line slide, the curl breaking on my chest forcing me down into the pit, but it backed off just enough to make the green before it started grinding again across the inside sand bar. I though to myself i'm going to make it you bitch, your not going to gobble me up, and as one of the young kids sitting inside said to his buddy "Shit he made it!"
Rabbit Stew with Red Wine:
Dredge rabbit pieces with 1/2 cup flour. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat; brown rabbit pieces on all sides. Add celery, onion, salt, pepper, bay leaf, 4 cups water, and a glass of Merlot; bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer rabbit stew for 2 hours. Add carrots, potatoes, and mushrooms; cook for about 25 to 30 minutes longer, or until vegetables are tender. Combine 1/4 cup flour and 1/3 cup water; stir until well blended and smooth. Stir flour mixture into the broth; cook and stir until thickened. Rabbit stew recipe serves 4.
