Hurricane Bertha and a Birthday.

A couple of good things happen this week.  We started to see some swell from Bertha on Saturday August 2nd.  It was lumpy, choppy and bigger than usual which was a nice change.   Sunday morning the surf looked much bigger and pretty wild.  I did paddle out and got some fun rides but, it was a lot of work.  On Monday the surf had cleaned up a lot and it still had size to it.  Lots of guys were out and I got some fun rides that will stay with me for a while.  

My girlfriend got me a new board for my birthday.  I instantly feel in love with it and had so much fun.  It's a little bit shorter than my other fish so, I was enjoying the ride.  Anyways, Tuesday was the day.  The swell had dropped a little.  The breeze was light and the waves had cleaned up a lot.  It was non stop fun.  I had a great time.

I'm not sure what the surf is like today Wednesday.  It won't be as good as yesterday but, it'll still be fun.  I'm stoked to still be able to paddle out and have so much fun at 62.  Yes, there were a couple guys out that are older than me.
