Cloudy -- 2/26/05
Date: February 26, 2005
Words: Kept my expectations low and ended up having a fun time in mediocre conditions. A combo NNW with a semi-windswell system produced some peaky surf. Winds were firm, but the wave faces were surprisingly smooth. It was so cloudy, I bet a lot of folks didn't go out because of that--their loss.
Most waves reared up with an exciting takeoff, then just died with no wall. Still had fun on the shortboard, learning, improving.
Last wave was the best: takeoff on the outside peak, wound down a fun wall, turn back onto the inside where it reared up, took the safe route around most of the hollow section, proned in. Still got a long way's to go on confidence, but am having fun on the stick.
