Happy Zurowski getting some air time

Date: September 24, 2005
Time: 0715--0815 plus the photo shoot
Spot(s): Sandy Beach Half Point
Conditions: Punchy peaks
Swell: East swell from the remnants of Hurricane Jova
Surf: 2-3' Haw'n

Words: Jumped in the water before the IBA Hawaii. For fun, I first went out to Full Point, joining a bunch of longboarders. Caught one soft one, then worked my way to Half Point.

The bodyboarders practicing out there were killing it. Man, they are at another level. Me, I just floundered out there, caught a few, but nothing spectacular.

Went in and dropped off my board, then headed back out to take some pictures. Didn't plan to, but I ended up staying out for nearly two hours, battling the current and trying to get some pics.

Came in all tired, but felt like I finally got some much needed exercise, and some decent shots.
