Too BIG 03/31/2010
 
Wind came up some but not enough for this swell.  When it starts to break by that rock on the far right it can be around mast high.

Morning SUP 03/27/2010
 
So I paddle out and realize I don't have my helmet on.  I immediately went back in very cautiously to go get it.  Fun rights and lefts again until the wind came up later and messed it up.  I'd show a picture of why I wear a helmet now but some people may not need to see it here.  Here's a pic of today(aftersesh).

Swayday 03/25/2010
 
Swaylocks always has something.  Maybe its just for some researching about something, perhaps its about fins, quads, thrusters, or whatever.  But there's always more, and it can be very entertaining as they like to keep it real.  The silly freesurfing,etc...is just one of them today and so is the magazine one.       
 
Sail or paddle? 03/23/2010
 
Windsurfed yesterday so SUP was really wanting its turn.  Prolly could have rigged up a 5.2 here or even drove a little ways to sail where the MM5 showed it.  Eventually caught a few nice rides paddling but it turned out to mostly be a combined day of more intensive research and training.  The wind, chop and mixed swells always makes for a great challenge on any SUP.  I'm always stoked that the 7'11" SUP can handle it so well and still ride waves the way I want it to.  I'm thinking even shorter, narrower, and much lighter for the next one. 
 
 
Jack opened up the place surfing on his custom Bob Pearson longboard.  Luke, Greg, Jeff and I sailed it midshift and then Rob L. showed up for the evening sesh.  Luke unfortunately broke a mast and a base extension.

Jack was going surfing but it already looks like a nice windsurfing day is about to shape up in about an hour.

I remember when I used to think not too highly about SUP and thought those waves just looked too small to go surfing.    The amount of waves that can be ridden and the workout you can get in a short period of time is crazy.           
 
Cape was fun 03/18/2010
 
5.2 wind and some nice waves.  Some surfers even showed up later and rode some nice ones.  Greg, Luke Mathison, Ken, Dana, Rog and I were out wavesailing.  Luke Martinez and Rob L. surfed it.  Heres a pic I took of Roger R.
