Got out yesterday in some fun racy-ish waist high waves at the beach. Was being careful with the staples in my head and all (coming out today - wife looked and approved a morning surf), but caught a few fun ones. Just great to be back out there after having to watch the last swell. Surfed a new-to-me (and practically new) WRV 9-0 Fernandez - board seems like it can be pretty fun. Certainly lighter and more maneuverable than my Almond log with a bit more rocker for the beach break - may be a keeper for a while under the guise of a board for the wife just in case she ever starts surfing. Plus, it fits in my car!
