All Over the Place -- 10/20/07

Me at Rockpile, Maurice Aubuchon photo

Date: October 20, 2007
Time: 0600 -- 0930
Spot(s): BD/PL, OTW, Rockpile
Conditions: Clear with little wind
Swell: Clean NW swell
Surf: 2-4' Haw'n

Words: Overslept by three hours. Didn't feel too bad when I saw the early morning surf (and the crowds). Very spotty skies and not the most powerful surf led me to just go sponging with new point-and-shoot in hand (Olympus Stylus 790 SW).

Started at BD/OTW, but it started kind of uninspiringly. Paddled over to "Arpies" and found some big peaks and shoulders. Think I buckled my new bodyboard on one of the bouncy takeoffs. Paddled back and had a little better time at the Beach Park stretch. Overall, it was ok, but I know it was better at other places (especially after getting the report from Fabe).

Aloha from Paradise,
