Well not a lot to report really.
Went out surfing with hubs last Wednesday... Before the big storm was to hit.
We got a late start , had to take the Diva(teenage daughter) to school and she had a late start day too ...boo!
Oh well my friends were not showing up till 9:00 any way.
But it was calling for negative low tide at 11:44 ... So we had a small window .
Showed up to Blackies (which by the way is having a lot of drama over a snaking incident over a week ago..that is resulting in a bunch of grown men acting like kindergartners ).. I joked before going out..Home break is Turning into West Side Story... But without all the singing and dancing and snapping!
I'm staying out of it.. I just want to surf and have fun!
So we arrive to a pretty empty parking lot.. Saw Susan who was driving down the street.. To check a few Jetties over to see if conditions were any better.. Said so far South of Jetty by where we park is best bet..
So we did not waste any time.. Got out of truck... Saw Laura suiting up she was heading out regardless of lack of surf!
Said same thing south of jetty best bet.
Hubs and I walked over to see and still not great but it was something ,a long lull but a few 2 footers came through!
So we ran back to car suited up.
With the tide and seems this small area between jetties was only game in town everyone was heading here... So we needed to hurry.
But vibe was chill... Susan, Laura, Jen O and hubs and I set out... Saw Sue in the line up and chit catted and then Rich and a few of his students showed up. So much Aloha in the water! It felt really good to be there!
Oh and I was expecting crappy weather.. But sun was out nice clear beautiful sunshiny morning! GOOD POSITIVE VIBE was happening!
So I share my first wave with Laura I go right and her left ! It was fun .. And seriously I just thought it would be a work on my paddling day! So I was stoked on the one wave!
Everyone was happy and catching waves and out side closer to the jetty came a few bigger sets.. Everyone said where the hell did this come from??
But it was short lived.
I caught another left and I guess I was in shock or something everyone said it was a perfect wave I was in the face it was a bigger one.. People were yelling pop up! But I just rode it in on my knees. I really don't know why! I so could have popped up... It was fast.. I think I was just in shock... But I guy told me I had the biggest smile and looked like I was having fun.
But feel I missed an opportunity .. I had this nice wave I was in it ...perfect and I blew it... I didn't stand up!! I have no explanation why?? I was a tad scared for some reason... Maybe it's because the drop felt so deep ... I didn't want to wipe out and I didn't want to blow the wave... I don't know???
I did have fun... But I wanted a do over ..
I did not get one. :-(
I had a wipeout after that and I caught a close out and some white wash..
Then I paddled to other side of Jetty... Because it looked better.. You know grass is always greener ... Yada yada... Waves always better ...
Well they were not all I caught over there was one wipeout and it seem shallower then the other side.....and hubs and Susan stayed over there and caught waves .. And was told hubs caught a killer perfect loooong left!!
I missed all the action!!!
Then hubs paddled to me to tell me all about it!
Then we came in called it a day told everyone in the lot who did not go out we had fun and it was a good day surfing!!
