How was your surf today?....share your stoke!

Jan 8, 2011
Local was onshore 7 bft and just around the corner it was offshore and just no surf today but just a good time with a friend and talking about our surf plans after Covid...Fingers crossed for this weekend!! Sunday looks good with less wind and still hip-shoulderhigh waves....time to take out my new Bing Trimulux!!

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.

One that got away...

Couldn't find a way to make it work to get out today. But am stoked for the couple of friends who could...

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.
