Longboard Love (Capitola 022213)

Being back on the longboard was a like a vacation. Paddled to the outside in one sec. Zipped around to catch outside peelers. Had one of the those…

More Practice (Capitola 022113)

Swell was much weaker today though there were still waves through low tide. There were only five of us out and interestingly, it was the first time since…

First Ride on the Motorboat (Capitola 022013)

It wasn’t an epic wave or anything, but it was epic-in-my-mind to get a ride the second time out on my Motorboat! We were expecting more of a…

Surf check: big, windy onshore and raining.

Small window to surf today in between meetings. Bought a used 6’6″ M10 Tomahawk yesterday from Arrow surf shop on a whim. The board is made by local…

WNW and Offshore (Capitola 012613)

Glad Max said to go out today even though I was indecisive after seeing a huge overhead outside set roll through a couple of hours earlier. It was…
