….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Obviously whipped out a head dip or two to wow the judges.

Not today.
Just turns and for once, good wave selection.

I remember, while he was competing, Fanno was asked about heat strategy. He said, “Well, you’ve got to stay patient, but you have to keep busy. I really have no idea.”

Yes, I think Trev may have given away a few secrets.

Teaming it with a hood would have been perfect.

Two surfs today . Quick one this morning before the tide filled in was fun albeit inconsistent . Some bigger set waves showing what tomorrows swell will be like . I`ve taken 3 weeks off to do a bathroom reno and after jack hammering most of the day thought I`d go back out . Swell filling in nicely but damn it there`s just not enough sand on the beach . Still managed a lot of waves but jeez the old arms were like lead . If it stays east /nor east for a while we might just finally get our sand back .

Bobby Martinez when interviewed and asked about his board dims and specifics “I don’t know man, they make them I ride them”

Good answer. And best way to think about boards.

That swell, keeps on keeping on.
Only one spot handling the overnight wind/low tide combo and still looks hard work.

I went out yesterday but didn't have a good time. Thought I was going to get flogged and maybe not make it out but there were huge lulls. Barely had to duck dive. Sets were breaking way further out than the rest. Fairly crowded and sat too far out.
