Sandy's Drag -- 9/06/09

The Infamous Sandy's Shorebreak

Date: August 30, 2009
Time: Dawn
Spot(s): Sandy Beach
Conditions: Sunny with offshores
Swell: Tradewind swell
Surf: 2-3' Haw'n

Words: Small surf island wide, so caught the ever-dependable Sandys for predominant windswell. Cloudy in the morning, ruining the sunrise shot, but got lucky on a few waves. Swam out to Half Point to check things out. On my way back in, I got caught by a dredging "set" and got dragged on the reef. Shoulder and calf got some light scratches and bruises--a reminder that even when small, Sandys can pack a punch.
