A quick dip w/ small waves - Today was our 1st anniversary, and Maggie and I went for a dip at Santa Clause just to get wet.  The waves were small and all closed out.   But Maggie was on LJ (little jew, 7.1 fun-shape), and I was on my shortboard.  Sessio

Buying a new board - Jeff and I met a local Jason there.  We met him in the lineup the day before, and he offered to sell me his used 9'6" Yater epoxy spoon single fin board.  We met him there and I surfed the board before I bought it.

santa claus shmanta claus - Dudes, Funny the name is santa claus 'cause you ain't getting no gifts here bros. If me or my posse' are out, your going home, mo. Don't even think about running into my 12'6" soft top (with wax). I'll jack you up with a verbal tongue lashing. I'm not jokng. I tow in by hanging on to a long dog leash and having my dog run on the beach. Yeah, it's that heavy. If you do paddle out, watch out for the sand bottom and smooth cobblestones. You've been warned.

Loon Point anyone? - If you want to surf a real secret spot just head up the beach from santa claus lane (be sure to watch out for the dreaded "Cito Rats") and walk up to Loon Point - this place gets really good and is usually not crowded - pretty localized but I never had a problem when I just went by myself and surfed and had fun. You could probably show up with 10 guys and surf cause hey what are the cito rats gonna do? Loons is a good right point that is fun on big winter swells, norths, north wests or a lot of west will get this place going.
