Cold snap hit last couple days with wind chills below zero but this afternoon we had a welcomed and a little unexpected waist high bump. 21° with wind chill 12° sunny and offshore, handful in the lineup and plenty of fun ones on the Mits Modern Classic. Time for beers, Bruins and a burning fire.....needed that!!
Jesus, more power to ya! ... I wear a 4/3 and a hood in 58 degree water lol

Found the right window when the tide was shifting yesterday, totally worth the hour drive north. Met two buddies, had it to ourselves for about 20 minutes before the rest of the island (slight exaggeration) decided to grab a few with us. Tasty local beers in the backyard afterwards was just the icing on the cake.

We picked up a drone for my dad for Christmas to shoot some video of his boat and travels. We thought he'd like it since he's a techy engineer (retired) but he can't put it down. He has his own youtube channel now and we spliced this edit together of a few waves from yesterday. It was s all and closing out but I think he did a good job.

Stoked!!!
2 hours in the water with a rotation of others coming and going but never more than 4 of us out at once.
32 degree air 36 degree water and a light 5 knots offshore. Small little thigh high peelers setting up great for the 11’ Mitsven.
Finding the sweet spot on that board. Stalling, speeding up with couple steps forward and fading left while switching to goofy.
Fun to play on a uncrowded day and let the mind unwind from the day to day crap it gets caught up in.

Nice!
If you were where I think, I saw you and a few out there. I played hooky from work in the p.m. yesterday and hit the beach for a 2 1/2 hr. session until my arms were ready to fall off and I couldn't tell if my left foot was still attached. Some really fun clean chest sets coming through and peeling into the corner. Like you said, great way to let the mind unwind and just be in the moment.... Please sir, I want some more.
