Description:

The Kookaburra sits in the old Gum Tree ... 

7AM Picked up my new custom shaped EPS/Epoxy Kingfisher 9' 0" X 23" X 3" X 18" X 15" Swallow tail Quad.  Waxed up with wax softened by my Solara's heater, peeled on the 4/3 Cell and paddled out at Ray Bay. No too crowded yet and Tony was taking pix. Kind of soft and full with the early morning high tide but clean and glassy with some nice shoulder high sets every now and then.

First thing you notice with the EPS/Epoxy is even with 2X6 oz deck and 1X6 oz bottom is its lack of weight. Flotation is amazing, could almost knee paddle it. The board feels more lively yet more rigid than polyurethane foam, makes a tinkling sound as it slaps the water. How does it ride, excellent, no quirks. Paddles and catches waves like a board 6 inches longer. You can run it out in front of a peak lay it on a rail and snap it back off the top. Extremely stable, forgiving platform, even with slight double concaves under the fins. The extra width and the hard down rails by the wing and swallow grip and track through foam without even a bump or loss of speed. The concave nose allows you to push through fat sections from up front. Only thing did find it felt a little stiff, which I am sure can be fixed by playing with the fin set up (after all it has 5 slots) plus I have been riding my MR design 7'2" SuperFish the past couple of weeks.

The wind was stronger than expected but the surf was good. I started on the left in the rip. I got some really good shots. But after 1h, I felt tired and crossed the channel to the the beautiful right which started to work really well. I got some backside bombs (I nearly tube!)

Then the cold started to do its destruction: I had to come back home !

Description:

After a week of La Niña storms and pouring rain followed by gale force winds (thought the big California Palm trees would come crashing down all over) surf was "Victory at Sea" until the last couple of days.

With apology to Donovan:

Blue's the colour of the sky
In the mornin' when I ride,
In the mornin' when I ride. 
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Brown's the colour of the angry sea
In the mornin' when I ride,
In the mornin' when I ride. 
That's the time, that's the time
I love the best.

Anyway Blackies at Newport Beach was the ticket the past couple of mornings. Yesterday was a solid chest to shoulder high with overhead sets even on the deep early morning high tide. Today was cleaner (not the water) but smaller and super crowded. With the shifting peak you just had to be lucky to be in the right spot. Late steep take-offs for a quick cover up then blasted out onto a fat shoulder that sucked up on the inside sandbar!  (By the way I will let you know if I develop Super Powers due to the toxic runoff!)

Smile 

Glassy conditions this morning Northside Seal Pier at 8 AM with light rain and a light cross shore. Swell was inconsistent chest to shoulder on the sets with some shore break backwash from a deep early morning high tide of almost 7 feet (some minor flooding on PCH by Sunset Beach). Only a couple of us out there "Singing in the Rain". A couple of heavy squalls from an offshore thunderstorm then patchy blue sky and a rainbow.  Started to get better as the tide went out but the side shore SE wind started to pick up. Caught a 100 yard bomb off the sea wall, late takeoff, ducked under the lip and pumped the Super Fish hard down the line through the backwash to almost dry sand!

I caught one really good wave at the beginning of the session. I probably rode that thing for 150 to 200 yards or so. The waves were kind of bumpy and blown out though. I think if we had a little offshore breeze instead of the onshore one it would have been great.

Overall it was a good session though.

Description:

The waves were a decent size today. The wind was blowing offshore pretty hard though so it was rough out there today. There was a crowd out today but it was so spread out because of the type of break white plains is so it wasn't too bad.

Caught a couple of waves today, two really good ones that stand out. The thing that sucked today though was the paddle out. Getting through the impact zone today was a little rough. After i caught the first good one it was a rough ride getting back to the outside lineup. After I caught the second good one I just rode it into shore.

An american lad told me it gets massive some days when the storms come and that he'd been bitten by a baby shark, but who knows. They were all really frindly and we got trolley'd on the beach afterwards with the sun setting and jimi hendrix blasting. Happy days!

It was pretty bad today. The strong offshore wind kept pushing the whole lineup away from the break, the swell wasn't all it was cracked up to be today, and it was pretty crowded too.

All told, I got a few waves in and a bad day of surfing is better than a good day at work. I'll take it.

Description:

There was supposed to be a decent swell coming from the north west so I went to check out tracks and it was totally flat. I took the 20 minute drive a little further north to the rec center just to see what was up and, apparently, the swell started to come in during the drive. They were still a little small and there was a lot of waiting going on between sets but, no matter what the conditions, I have a hard time saying I had a bad day surfing.

The lineup was pretty sweet today too. There was me, a guy on a paddle board, and some dude named Jack, and then one other guy came out a little later and hung out for a while. A couple of paddleboarders came out a little later but they left pretty quick. All told it there was never more than five people out there at any time.

The waves were kind of junk today. The first hour was right before the super bowl. That was pretty sweet cuz the wind was light and the waves were pretty fun. The second hour was after the super bowl so the wind had picked up and the tide had come in a little. The waves were pretty choppy but they were rideable. It was better than nothing!

Description:

After having missing the good sandbank yesterday, I get early this morning to go there. And I found the big right not as good as yesterday but still a really good wave !

I missed the 3 first waves because I was alone and it was hard to find the right take-off. Then I started to caught good ones with big carves and a lip on my head.

After surfers came. It was fun but really physical. Then we saw 50m south a incredible slab: it was Teahupoo !!! just perfect !! But the rip was too strong to take the wave (and I didn't have the level in fact)

Description:

The swell was big. And all the sandbanks have moved because of the tempest Klaus which have devastated my region. I found a solid swel. As the tide was low, I paddled outside and get some fun rights, powerful, hollow, but not too hollow.

After one hour, as the tide rose up, I came to beach. But the nightmate began: The waves were only big, thick close-outs. I caught only one wave more. Frown

I was smashed by big sets...Exhausted I went out. I saw a beautiful peak: I jumped into the water again. I get smashed harder than before and didn't managed to go outside.

I came back. Then I saw surfers 500m up to the north on the most incredible right I ever seen here in ten years ! A guy (a really good surfer) caught a big stand-up tube, stayed 5sec completely hidden by the tube then went out !  

I was too tired to go again...

Description:

It was a small day at Tracks today but it was a place I've been wanting to surf for a while. The lineup was empty again, there were nine of us out there, but that's why I like surfing during the weekday instead of on weekends, most people are at work.

I was surprised at how short the rides were too. I didn't realize Tracks broke that close to shore. All in all, a bad day of surfing is better than no day of surfing.

Coolest thing about the morning was the seal coming out of the water just as I was going in. I've seen the thing sitting around sunning before but I've never seen him come out like that.

Other than that, the lineup was pretty bare and the surf was okay. Nothing spectacular, just another day at White Plains. Better than working though.

Description:

Went to surf at the "Tree" in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica at 6:00 AM. The tide was going to low tide, which was at 10:00, so the waves were getting faster and more hollow as closeouts. I stayed out there until I got a descent ride to satisfy the hunger I have to ride nice line. Caught a good fast left did a maneuver and got in the barrel to get everything I could out of it. After that there wasn't much to get so headed out and was walking to leave when a aquaintance that I hung out with a couple times came up to me. It was another surfer named Magoo (for some reason) and he's mentioned being in the WQS in the past. "Dude, you were surfing with some crocs out there man. I was like this kid is crazy. You were right next to them too," he said excitenly. I didn't know what to think and I told him how I always keep an eye out because Costa Rica is a naturally wild place with a lot of free roaming wildlife. "If you look out at the school of fish you can see them poppin up every once in a while. You can see them moving too doing S turns. I thaught I saw something so I went back to my house and got my binauculars and those are crocs, clear as day. Look I'll show you," he continued to explain and point out the dangerous creatures. Sure enough there they were "Clear as day" as he said and I felt that much insecure as I always do surfing by Myself. The one day that I finally feel comfortable being bymyself I get shotdown to being insecure of the natural dangers this wonderfull destination offers.

The lineup was me and some guy on a stand-up. I struggled with the 7'6" so after paddling around for 20 minutes, trying for four or five waves and catching one of them, I decided to paddle back in and grab the 8'6". Once I got out there with that one things started looking up. Got to grab whatever I wanted because there was noone out there competing for waves. Rode a handful of rights and called it a morning. Not too shabby.

Description:

so i got up, walked out to where i catch the boat, got a boat, arranged a pickup time, and jumped off into an empty reef with no affects due to tide. head high swell, and i couldnt be more thrilled. 3 weeks later i was still suffering from the severe sunburn I recieved these couple of days, but nyway, I jump off the boat almost right into a wave. I surf for the following 5 or 6 hours, Im not really sure. but long story short, the boat never came back, no one ever showed up, and the tide never turned, so essentially it was sick, epic, out of control,.....until it was time to go home. fortunatly there was land close by, but we were seperated by an urchin encrusted reef. when I couldnt stand to paddle anymore I decided to give the reef a go, nd try my luck on land. caught a wave in, rode the whitewash on my belly through the shallows. the water receeds for the oncomming wave, and im left high and dry on this reef. the wave breaks, and im tossing around in a few inches of water. I ride that backwash back out past the reef and curse to myself for trying that. but im still faced with the challenge of getting back. i ride acouple more waves, and give it another go. this time i find the pass, and safley paddle all the way to the beach. I jumped on the back of a dumptruck, made small talk with the workers in back and got off when they took me as far as they could. I walked the rest of the way. ended up with some serious gouges in the bottom of my board, but nothing I couldnt handle fixing.

so its saturday, i think independece weekend for costa rica, lineup is packed. waves suck. out of nowhere I see a bump, i paddle towards the peak, other local snags it...im a little bumbed but as soon as I make it over the lipline, i see right behind it is another. i glance around and Im the only one in the spot. i drop in, hit the lip acouple times get acouple quality turns in and kick out right behind the dude who took the first one. behind me, there are no more waves, just like 3ft, bullshit slop. i paddle out right behind the first guy, and as soon as we make it out to the peak, 2 more freak waves come, he grabs the first again, and i see that there is someone else looking like there gonna paddle for the second. so from the second I saw the 2nd set shape up, i knew this wave was mine. dude paddles for the wave, hes got priority, drops in, behind the peak about the time im dropping in right at the peak, he pearls and im left free and clear. with the adrenaline pumping from the first wave just acouple minutes ago I surfed the second about the same as the first, again kicking out rigt behind the first guy. and that was it, the rest of the day was crummy mush. but for sure 2 sick waves on an otherwise crappy day with very little swell.

This place is usually out of control, the whole coast is really exposed to both swell and wind. the setups around the reefs here are pretty sketchy at best and don't really produce quality waves very often. Unless your a local and know the area and conditions i wouldn't bother there are better waves to be found a few kays down the road
