surfed a lot this week despite small waves.

started on the 5'9" tokoro with speed wing fins and that felt pretty good in soft waist-chest peaks although not as good as the dream catcher and then did a few sessions in really small waves on the 11'er and 10'er and surfed last two days in waist high lefts with the odd right on my 6'2" arakawa amplifire which was a bit of a struggle but felt really good to drive and turn sharply on the few good ones i caught.

I've been nursing a sprained wrist since last year. It never healed because I never rested it, so I finally took some time off to avoid developing arthritis. Finally got back in the water after a couple months this week. Last weekend had a super fun session with just a coworker and myself on a shoulder high beachbreak right. Sunny, warm, and glassy.

Yesterday I ventured up to OB and had a great time. Got a nice barrel during the morning session. Waves were all over the place so basically had to be in the right place at the right time. Later in the day with the higher tide it was more clean cut, though I was so tired from being out of paddle shape that I was pretty useless. Still it was offshore all day and it was nice spending the day at the beach.

Current was pumping this morning but created a great little rip bowl at my old spot. A lot more fun than it looked like it would be. Some shoulder high sets.

Got some fun log waves the past 2 days, yesterday on the VS Slot NR and today on the HPTC.
Bonus today was a second session on the soft tops with both groms cause my daughter was begging me to surf.
Looks like I have a (at least one) surf partner. jam_on

Caught a small hand-full of really nice waves despite it being small and inconsistent. Perfect shape and the crowd was pretty minimal.

Foiled the same peak I've been foiling North of me lately. Lakey Peterson was out and destroying. Made me wish I was on a normal board for a bit. Then I'd look at the normal people out surfing and realize I was on the right board for me today. Still some waves hanging in there, maybe waist high with some chest high sets.

A guy was sitting in the parking lot in his wetsuit holding his board. His car had been stolen out of the parking lot while he was surfing. Glad I bought a realtors lockbox to put my key in last year.

Super crowded this weekend, but lots of good waves. Best ones needed some zig-zagging to get through the inside thickets of those hoping you were going to biff.

Rode the 6'8" one day, the 6' on the other.

Knee is still bothering me so I rode the glider at a local point.

Words of advice: Wear booties when surfing a rocky point if you've been in dress shoes for 5 days straight.

Lot's of long waves. Felt great.

Yeah wow, I always assumed it was really spread out and more of a you vs the ocean thing than people.

That looks like Mayport on a September Saturday hurricane swell. Except it's about 4x bigger and the water is 25 degrees colder.

For too long now, its been that way.

You are not saved by the dawn patrol, the evening "glass off", or the "nooner" either.

Sigh.

I suppose there is always April through September though.
