Well I went to the beach today and found wet streets and absolutely no waves. At least in Newport. I started to wonder when winter is going to kick in? Sure I have got some waves but I had to travel for them. It would also be nice to get a little snow pack to allow for some winter activities and help with the draught conditions.

Young Jordan with a fin first take off.
Really small surf but the conditions were just beautiful. There was a "Painted sky" effect.

2 days left on my vacation so I decided to head to one of Califoria point to get a day of logging in. Great conditions all day with some extreme tide changes. Small ground swell in the water with a "Nice Peel" to it which made for a fun day.

Surfed for the first time since back from the islands. Cold and hard to get motivated. I made sure I went out, I guess you could call it a "Forced hand". Checked out Newport first which was not ridable so I moved on. Actually ended up with some waves. Conditions were good however the swell direction was walled. You had to get the corners.

Today I am off for my "Yearly Pilgrimage". I may or maynot be able to post for awhile we will just see. Equiped with 3 boards 7'-9" Andreini, 7'-6" Junod gun, and a 7'2" NPJ with widow maker setup. The 7'0 range has always been succesful for me in the Island winters. The 7'9" Andreini can surf in place of a log or step up in solid waves . The NPJ will surf like a shortboard but also handel juice. And the Junod is built for the Bay.

Today offered up some classic logging with good conditions. The masses were out almost like a "Arena Atmosphere". The young guns displaing the modern log riding and the older crew displaying some classic style. Made for a fun day.
