Nice! I got fun waves on Saturday, twice on Sunday, and then the best day was Monday; overhead, offshore, and hollow. Found a little zone all to myself. Rode the 5'11" Album utf.Surfed in Rice's neck of the woods this past weekend. Saturday morning was fun, offshore all morning, waist-shoulder high and some mostly lefts but some rights as well. There were people but relatively spread out, and they kept moving around so I just kept finding the holes in the crowd. Waves were breaking everywhere so eventually a wave would come to you.
Today I surfed some pretty walled beachbreak and howling offshore just north of yesterday's spot. I managed to stroke into the diamond-in-the-rough left barrel. It ran pretty quick and started closing down after I travelled a ways, I couldn't see the exit and headed for what I thought would be an easy doggy-door. Unfortunately I was up a big higher on the wave than I though and came out a little too steep and went down. Oh well. Fun weekend on the Central Coast.
du prly thought u were like a mer-man and chit!paddled at the kelpy reef alone. the fog was thick so it was hard to tell from shore what was really going on out there. i knew there was about 10 feet of swell on the buoy so I went out there to see what was up. it ended up being pretty big and the tide was a little low so the kelp was a big factor. got a couple kinda fun ones right off the bat and then things went steadily downhill. it was impossible to see shore so I couldn't figure out my lineups. some wide swinging sets started rolling through and I didn't enjoy duckdiving big walls of whitewater while being surrounded by long kelp whips. stubbornly stuck it out for half an hour trying to get a rideable wave to go in on but ended up getting tossed on a couple late drops and finally just gave up and bellied one through minefield of partially exposed rocks on the inside.
startled an old man walking his dog on the beach as I emerged from the ocean. where did you come from?!

Was a very good weekend.
Stoked. Probably just missed you in the water.Yes, I meant Sunday for the first session. Surfed later that afternoon when the wind came up and it was still fun. Monday was definitely nice and hollow! Probably could have found a spot with better corners but at least the crowd wasn't bad.
Went for a sweet mountain bike ride Saturday morning before it got too hot. Definitely a great weekend!
