    0110B18C-D8EC-4062-B171-BD75FA5A85D8.jpeg First ride on my 7’6 Ryan Lovelace V. Bowls. It was a mellow day. Calm winds and near glassy conditions with waist high sets. My first wave was a backside right. I got back on the tail and got an instant ball bearing type feeling. So rad! This board is a blast and pivots in the smoothest way. I’m really stoked with it! Water temp was around 65 F, medium rising tide.

    7’4 Lovelace V. bowls. Conditions were better than yesterday. Smooth and glassy with thigh to waist high sets with a few chest high. I was a little worried about the size but got so many waves today! One particular left held up so long, it was incredible how far I rode that clean shoulder. Amazing. I haven’t felt as immediately connected to a board like this in a long time. I’m using a 9” Volan fin... maybe too much (?) but it rode well! To top it off I saw a dolphin which is always cool.

    Couch with the SB surf report again....wait for it.....WIND! Yep, wind for nearly 3 weeks now....still got in 3 days this week and found some clean lines between wind swells. Sand is in full swing making our points more user friendly, water temp. dropped again thanks to all that WIND, balmy 57* today. Ventura had a few nice sets this week for those who ventured south as they pick up a south and the islands block all but big ass-kickers from Mex. Still fun, still stoked, teaching my 10 year old to surf now----remember those days?

    The last couple of days I started my new adventure into In the water Surf Photography! So far so good. The first day was in 6” To 10” of rages waves. The Yesterday at Sebastian Inlet it was shine high to waist high wind swell. It’s not as easy as one might think. Watching out for waves and keeping an eye on the subject while being pushed around by currents . And watching for other Surfers that may or may not run you over is a challenge. I will post up some Photos in the Photo section.

    SB surf report for the week of 5/27, small and textured surf pretty much for a bit now. Occasionally still some fun little ones creeping in but not much to get too pumped about. The summer shut down is nearly here; hoping for some west or NW action....but not much forecast.

    Scattered reports here and there about friends catching some fun sessions north and south of us but you know how that goes, "You missed it, blah blah blah.....really fun....blah blah....only 5 people out...blah blah...." OK I GUESS I FRIGGIN MISSED IT!
