Took the new middie out today for its maiden voyage. Hit up a beach break in south county, clean conditions with offshore wind, but high tide and mix of swell made it a bit inconsistent. There were fun ones to be found and the new board felt great under my feet. Lots of foam to help my dad bod move, and paddling felt like a dream. Boards makes tons of speed so I was able to link sections in somewhat backed off wallie surf. Got in a couple of nice carves and last wave got to actually go down the line a bit for a nice highline, turn, float combo into the beach. Just a short session before work today, but super stoked on the new board and hoping I don't have to wait til next winter for good waves!

A narrower tip 4A huh? Hmm... I know this is sacrilegious to say here but.. I'm actually not a fan of the 4A in my logs. In the one pic of the fin I can find online it looked like it actually had a narrower base.

Been good all week, and today was no exception.

We're going back into a 4-week lockdown and I made a ton of last-minute changes to open up the afternoon. Found a really fun peaky section of beach with clean conditions, offshores, just myself and two friends for most of the session. Shoulder high mostly, a few head to slightly overhead sets, rights, lefts... Steeper and faster on low tide.

A perfect way to wrap things up for a while.
