Hollow - Ouch, the tide was higher. The swell was still long and present. Waves were hollow. I was backside and found faaaast waves : no turns, just speed. I stopped my session at the best moment but my hurt was painful.

Salut ZZZZZZZ - in mexico they say 'mi casa es su casa'. Do I need to translate? It means 'My house is your house'. They say this because they know that in life you always get more of that which you give. Comprende? I live and surf in your area, and cut my teeth on all the SoCal spots you could only dream of surfing. Break out of your shell, travel a bit of the world, and you too, will learn how to give. Then teach your friends, Peace out, Dude!
