Healing ok, Rookah?

Forecast was for some of my under the radar fave conditions, so hopes were semi high for uncrowded, short, hollow lefts. Just to be an idiot I brought my Pyz 2 and my 8'0 Keogh gun.

Long story short, I took the Keogh and the surf delivered. 5 of us, some barrels, sheet glass, and some super long waves too. Paddling in early on the 8'0, but taking the actual drop real late, then driving it through a barrel is just magic.

Waited too long for an OH last one that never came, but otherwise a beaut of a session.
Nah she's fukkered. Some good days, some bad. Trying to get surgery this summer, just trying to schedule around work and all the other stuff I got going on.

Sounds like you had some extreme conditions yesterday! Gale force winds can definitely make it challenging to get out on the water. Hopefully, the wind calms down soon for better conditions. Today seems like a good day to take a break and wait for more favorable winds.

Overcast and onshore. Still some sets but pretty dismal for the most part. Felt like the water temp dropped 10 deg. Came in and put booties on which I usually avoid at all costs.

Grovelled some microfeeble yesterday evening. Mostly just trimming the minimush. Outstanding water color (for North Florida). Was on the fence if I should have had the log over the Bean Bag. Definitely should have left the leash. But it was a bit bumpy and the log usually no likey.

What a sh!t week in socal. One decent day. Otherwise gutless and onshore. Flat all weekend and looks pitiful the next 10 days. 2024 has been sh!t for surf.
I went twice and after the second time went him and ordered my foul kit.

Santa Cruz is winning California this year, so far.
unless the waves have been good north of frisco. I wouldn’t know. Cold and scary up there.

Paddled out just to get wet. Knee high dribblers and water was cold. My hands only left my rail on 3 waves..called it quits after that.

Finding nothing today, so far…maybe check in on old dave and port and see what’s up with them. Lefts are too hard to come by lately. Stupid point breaks are all doing it wrong.
