It was another beautiful day in HMB – sunny, temps in the upper 60s, and full of Saturday cheer. It was warm enough to wear boardshorts and flip-flops and finally felt like summer. Despite small waves, I still went with the 7’3″ Superfish and am absolutely loving it. I’ve spent enough time on it now to feel comfortable. My pop-up is fast again, paddling is a breeze and I’ve managed to get in some nice short turns. I focused on paddling for small unbroken waves today and had luck getting four from the outside. Such a great feeling to paddle in at the right spot, make the tiny takeoff, pop-up low and ride it out. Tomorrow promises to be the same conditions so more practice awaits!
