Detonated -- 2/7/09

Waves were good!

Date: February 7, 2009
Time: Morning
Spot(s): Pipeline
Conditions: Supersweet
Swell: WNW
Surf: 6-8+' Haw'n

Words: Swam out just after 6 on the sponge. First wave didn't feel right so I straightened out. Wave clipped me and I cartwheeled into oblivion, losing one fin and punching my toes through the drain hole in the other. Fark! Searched the water and beach to no avail as first light broke.

Went for round two with the camera and got some decent stuff. Conditions were still funky, so there was a lot of dramatics in the lineup. Surf was on the decline, but still was pretty darned good.
