Description:

Walked down the road from La Jolla Farms Road around 7ish with Fabi, noticed a decent amount of cars already there for the Sunday morning hangover session, I wasn't this time around, but usually all the UCSD, USD, SDSU kids show up later due to their inability to shake the Saturday night cobwebs. Usually a bonus for taking it easy and getting there early but not to be this time around.  Must be tax season coming up or something, everybody's chillin'. Got to the bottom and the surf was only breaking at Middles with a decent crowd on it already and it looked small and weak to boot. Figured we'd paddle out just north of the pack to get wet since we'd allocated this time and put forth the effort to walk down the cliff.  Well, glad we did, cuz the tide kept dropping and the residual windswell/ groundswell kept jacking up more and more.  Actually had a surprising airdrop to speedy roundhouse wave right off the bat.  Session continued to improve and I managed to get a lot of racy lefts, nothing big, but definitely fun shoulder high waves.  The crowd kinda jumped from nothing to everybody and their mommas by 9'er and by then we had kinda made the most of the slightly inconsistent, dropping surf.  One wave in particular made me realize it is still possible to get yer ass handed to you on small days like this one, especially at Blacks just cuz it throws so much.  I air dropped super late into a head high wave, saw a guy paddling back out as I dropped in looking at me in amusement, actually pulled the drop only to get clipped by the lip trying to race around the section.  Basically, I got thrown like a lawn dart full on yard sale style about 5 feet out in front of the wave, head dipped, board tryed to hit me mid flight, got rolled three times under water, wave tryed to push me into my board again under water, and then I came up fully realizing how bad I just got worked but actually felt revived and ready for more. Must have been the cold water submersion or something.  Anyways, great sesh despite all the  kooks and wannabees cluttering the line-up like buoys.  Seriously, out of the 100 people that were out by the end, only about 20 of them were actually catching waves consistently.  Can you say "bouys"........
