I owe you.

All I need is some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine...

- Thank you Janitor for the ride to BART.
- Thank you Heelnipstr for the link up, loaning me a board and giving me a ride back after.

Epic weekend guys. Thank you so much. I really owe the erbb SF crew for such generosity. Got in 3 sessions from head high to nearly 3x overhead. Rode 4 different boards. Got in turns and tubes. Exciting place.

Looks like you guys got more waves and light winds coming!

I'd say energy is the same, maybe slight edge to North Shore but only cause the storms are closer. BUT, when you factor in the wetsuit, hood, water temp, fog, smoke, seals, sharks and lack of crowd, I'd say maybe scarier than Hawaii. In Hawaii, it's sunny and offshore and you're in boardshorts and when getting worked you get pushed into channels and deeper water. OBSF death zone keeps you there even pulls you back out from shore to the impact zone - after doing an underwater somersault I came up facing shore but moving back out to sea. Mindfuck.

Fun to surf with Racer and thekadvang on what turned out to be the worst day of the 5 days.

And to that one person who thought I wouldn't make the drop, so paddled next to me ever after I said I was going right (someone was going left on the other side of me) and then you pulled out at the last second only to go over the falls, if you were patient, you could have caught the bigger wave behind mine, but no, you had to do what you did..

This describes my session at a nearby left on Saturday and my session at kellys on Sunday

Anyone get a session in Thursday or Friday of this week (12/6-12/7)? I mind surfed it while watching the Surfline cam from my desk at work. Looked insane. Mercifully, the swell drops to below 10 feet this weekend when I can actually get in the water.
