I thought I will too late with the tide as it was a big tide (coef 106) but the sandbankstayed good nearly all the low tide. It was only one hour before the low tide that the waves started to close out.
I got powerful lefts. Not all the waves were good to be surfed. I have done really fun turns. A good session.

I didn't know nothing about surfing before booking my tickets to Brazil last August. When I arrived in Praia da Pipa, a small nice village 1/5 hours from Natal, I saw big waves and surfers walking back to the village. During my stay I took some courses and as soon as I learned to stand up, I got the virus!! After surfing in praia da pipa I continued surfing in almost every place I visited.

On a sloppy day at camel, at 5:30 p.m., I talked myself into paddling out to join about 30 people to rebound from my lost gun blues. There were waves to ride, but not great by any stretch of imagination. The sun set beautifully at around 7:20 and the crowd quickly vanished leaving only three of us to make sure no good waves got passed us. The wind completely stopped and the formerly dead-low tide close-out started jacking up and ripping off the bar! We decided to stay out though the horizon was fading to darkness. The guy rode a wave all the way in, leaving a gal and I in the moonlight riding many waves. When I slipped out the back of a long ride, I made the decision to paddle right back out, for the waves were better than I had seen them all day. Upon arrival back into the line-up, I noticed that she was still there. We repeated this process time after time until I said to her, "If you are going all the way in, let me know, but as long as you are out here, I'm staying." Riding a meaty wave in the dark all alone is what I had to do to when she rode in!

We planned on going up to Boca for a usual session, but Boca was flat as glass. So me and my riding partner decided to jump on I-95 for the trip north. We got up to Fort Pierce and discovered it was well worth the 2 hour drive. The tide was just going down and the waves were picking up. Great waves, great hotties, great people, and fun. Great session all in all. Long overdue, south florida surf has SUCKED lately.. Thank god for Saturday.

Just spent the entire day with my best mates surfing and goofing off in the lineup. The conditions were so small and we were just having a blast out in the water surfing and joking around. Maybe 20 people out but more than enough waves for all. Just an all around fun day, conditions were nice and glassy. Small but beautiful. Can't wait for spring break, non-stop Trestles!

It was one of those daysyou think it's good to be a surfer! I came early in the morning at the right spot at the right time. I found a fun left from 80cm to 1m, sometimes more. I was alone.
Even if the wave was not tubular, I got a lot of fun to surf it. I took 41 waves... I will have difficulty to do it better. As the wave was not very fast but has enough power to work my turns, I have done a lot of tricks.
A really good session !

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.
Kookaburra (King of the Kingfishers)!
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 !

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!)
Under the LIP! Now that's what I call VERTICAL!

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!

Today was a great day. I spent more time taking pictures of Dave, Shawn and Raymon than I did surfing. I caught a couple of good ones, but I got some real good shots today too.
Overall, great day. The waves were big enough, fast enough and plenty clean.

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.

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.

When i found out my girlfriend had booked to go to the south coast i was bumed that all th surf spots are on the north, we stayed at the riu bambu and was put in touch with a local surfer, robert (the guru) if you go, look out for him, he's the boy and loves surfin! the surf was too big for me jan 02 2009 but robert and his pals were catchin some awesome rides in 5ft surf. 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.

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.
