Overcast Skies....A good thing

The ultimate party wave!

The day started out a little slow today. My clock changed its time forward by and hour so I woke up at 6:41am expecting Eric, Winston and Liam to be waiting at my front door. I checked the driveway and no one was there. I called Liam wondering where he was. I then noticed the other clock and it was actually 5:41am. I called Liam back and apologized for waking him up early. Eric showed up and we packed the car. Liam arrived shortly after. We headed out. Just before we got to the border I received a call from home and had to head back. I arrived 121 at 11:00am and there was about 16 people in the water. The waves were not epic but it was a good day. Many waves were caught with a total of 18 people out to surf. Lets just say that today had the most party waves in a long time.

Jaakko heading upshore for more action.

A New Stick

Spring is upon us and it is time to start work on the newest addition, a classic wood board. I will be making a blank from a combination of balsam wood, red cedar and walnut or cherry for color. The new board will be 8' 4" with adjustable fins using the FCS plugs. I am hoping to get it gliding on our spring surf, or it will have to wait until fall. Got my work cut out for me, hoping for some juicy swell this weekend.

Welcome Back Surf!

The text forecast was calling for a strong sustained NE overnight, waves 8-11 feet. Called up Winston and arranged for a dawn patrol mission to 121. Driving down the shore it was soon realized that maybe the forecast meant 8-11 inches. Arrived at 121 to small but clean mini swell. Walked up the shore to the point and noticed the waves were a little bigger. We were there small surf or not we suited up and got wet. Water temps are kinda cold this time of year, but once you eyeballs freeze its all good. Caught some waves, had some good rides and went home satisfied. Looking forward to the next session. Welcome back waves!
