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. View attachment 29165
Hope to get there this summer!!

No plans to surf today, reports had been mediocre. Had a lot of todo's i was gonna knock out. Then I stupidly checked the cams... glassy, peeling, waist to chest high. The best kind of monkey wrench! Changed plans and headed out. Surfed a 7'6 shape of mine that came back from glassing recently and it was a joy. Not a hard edge on it, and really felt connected to the wave in the tail - albeit a hair slower without that hard edge for release. Damn it was fun.

Plus a fellow bolsa surfer had tried my 8'0 chop tail speed shape, and ended up buying it off me today. Shaped that 4 months ago, had a ton of fun on it, and now its going to a new home and funding another shape. Good day.

Edit: Have to add that Surfline report was terrible. Waves were excellent.

first day back in the water after five weeks healing some shoulder inflammation. waist-high rollers, the perfect invitation to return to the ocean. swooping turns on the mini-glider and a couple rides on my friend’s new SOS. and the shoulder feels fine.



aren’t waves beautiful? it’s amazing we get to do this.

Yesterday at 7 in the morning my local spot was great to get my new Bing Trimulux wet for the first time! Hip-shoulderhigh waves with just a small onshore breeze. It would be an average day for most of you but for us Dutchies it was a great day!!
After a few years only surfing shorter boards and midlengths it was a bit getting used to a longboard again but i had some great rides. The Trimulux past is maiden test for me!! Hope to get more days like this!!

Just got back from a week on Oahu. Surfed great conditions on both north and south shores, including a fun go-out at Sunset on my 6'8 CI Mid. Kinda funny when it's your first time out there and the first thing you see is a dude on a full gun with a helmet. Even at head high, that wave has some push behind it. Next time I'll have to risk bringing my 7' k model over there. Of course, I now also have this irrational need for a Parmenter Makaha machine, too. Haha.
