STOKED. Got six awesome rides on my new 7’4 in pretty clean conditions under sunny skies and offshore wind. Love this board! The first one I paddled for was a clean line wrapping in from the north end. Paddled and popped up (with total glee) and rode it all the way in. Board is so fast and fun. Made the drops with ease, even on some of today’s steep-then-drop-into-shallow-water waves. After the first one, I just kept getting wave after wave. Lines would stretch out from the north mostly but also the south. No one was in our spot and each ride was just clean and crowd-free. Also managed to snag one of those sweet lefts – zipping along the face while two groms paddled back out staring at me. Same lineup as the surfer I was watching when we arrived, just south of TB. S/he must have caught ten lefts in that spot to themselves while we were in the Jeep. Max was on his phone registering for the one spot that magically opened up at RMI for the June five day expedition climb of Mt. Rainier. Yew. Yesterday, all I wanted was one good wave on my new board. Today I got that and a solid connection with my new friend, the Egg. Thank you, universe.
