Re: Summer

fuschia!
I know a spot that will be unreal early next week, and I have some leave to burn, but I'm the boss at the moment and can't get away.

Somewhere up there you can take a lift to 3800m and then ski down to 1200m. I doubt the conditions will be suitable while I'm here but there were quite a few tracks when we passed by before the storms.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

So to summarise, the excuses alakaboo has come up with so far for his surfing crime of not paddling to TOS. 1) He's always paddled before 2) His mate is unfit and offered to pay 3) 80% of the others didn't paddle 4) ‪so many dangerous rich cnuts in big boats.‬ 5) ‪That's right, Womble! That's right...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I could justify the boat on safety concerns alone today. There were so many dangerous rich cnuts in big boats today, I saw a few paddlers have to take evasive action to avoid getting mowed down by a 35ft motor cruiser with the fenders still swinging over the side as they crossed the 'bar' at 25 kno...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I've only ever paddled before, but on an incoming tide and come through the island like Jimmy rather than climb the rockwall. Probably only surfed there 5 times over 15 years. I could justify the boat on safety concerns alone today. There were so many dangerous rich cnuts in big boats today, I saw a...

80% of crew out there came by boat or jetski this morning.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

No I took the taxi for the first time.
Was with an unfit mate who offered to pay.

Have to say I'd be sorely tempted to take it next time. Coming back in the boat after 3 hours of fairly active surfing was bliss.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

TOS.
It wasn't amazing, but it was a shedload better than the rest of the northern GC.
That wind got up early and strong.

Been a while since I had to take a drop, my ratio of waves made was pretty average.

Re: Good month for Baja Sur - Pacific West Coast

As a pisshead, you should get a driver to take you around Sonoma or Napa for the day. Good accommodation in Knob Hill. Muir Woods is great. The best part of the PCH near Big Sur is closed due to landslides. Ocean Beach has waves, if you like paddling for 40 minutes to get out. Too many white sharks ...
