No Can No More.

Arms like wet noodles.

Cannot lift above shoulders.

Rotator cuffs crack at any movements.

It's been a solid run, daily sessions, 2-3 hours in the water, lost count of waves ridden, since early September.

And then this.....

Another 6' glassy offshore day at Isla Lobos, perfect for my favorite section of the wave, Marrajo...

Perfect surf, perfect tides.

No tourists.

I chose to shoot hoops instead.

Just couldn't do it.

Never happened to me before.

No matter how tired, normally go out no matter what.

Just can't go today... Completely Surfed Out.

Could you translate those wave heights into something we understand?

6' glassy offshores is not an internationally recognized surf height? Who knew?

:shrug:

In Canarian (same same as Hawaiian) it was half a meter, (3foot), as it always is until it gets overhead, then it's a "solid meter".

For all the rest, 6' and glassy here, gets you wave faces of 8-10 feet on the sets, and about 4-6 on the in-betweeners.

Bottom line, hair dry stand up barrel's on sets, crouch to get out clean on the rest.... For those who still barrel.

Barrel Dodger - out
