Rant - Locked out

So I can't blame stony blowout but I did lock my self out of my truck. Some guy let me use his cell to get AAA. They took way too long then Officer Kidd drove by (Park Police) asked if he had a slim Jim; did not. But then 10 min. Later he shows up with wedge and bag and hook I'm in my truck. Guess who shows up after waiting 1.5 hrs. .

honk honk this morning and the bagels are warm. the winds are much lighter from east this AM and some sun on the back of the shell to help out with the internal heating. the waves are backed-up and mushed out with the tide. If you can Id say give it peek at 12-1pm. Wind should still be blowing from the eastern land gunga gulunga and the tide will be low and about ready to push back up. The seagulls also told me they think middle beach is rocking.

Bring that lead vest out there with you... frosty micro-waves are radiating all up and down the Beach.
4 feet and firing, offshore wind, but a little fat from the high tide this morning.

The turtle is dead, and the word is out. Coming this fall to sensitive spot near you: The $750 wetsuit.

I'm going back into hiding...

Just finished reading the book Deep, by James Nestor. This was surprisingly good....good enough to actually get me off my ass to review the book. Put simply, competitive freediving is insane. That having been said, the book is about much more than competitive freediving. The review is here: http://thewatermanslibrary.com/Site/Deep.html

CI Fred Rubble for sale. Very good condition. Surfed 8-10 times. Board sustained one extremely minor ding on corner of tail that was repaired immediately. Completely water tight. 5'9' X 18 1/2 X 2 3/16. Really fun board. Go to CI website to learn more. Only selling b/c I have two very similar boards in the quiver. $425

5-8ft with the occasional 9 or 10 footer rolling through. Good vibes in the water as quadro copters buzzed from above.

I drove the coast starting in SF and acquired nearly 30 minutes of ocean related footage along the way. Should have a video sooner or later.

Large and in charge this morning. Paddle could be difficult (I heard varying stories) and so could the rides. There were moments of glory, and some fairly epic holddowns / wipeouts. Size was 1.5x+ on the sets. Lots of whitewater was keeping the crowds (WAY) down.

Wasn't my best session; was simply surfing like shit. Seemed to have a (somewhat) undeserved bad hangover. Blew lots of takeoffs :-( But my one epic HH+ throwing left made the session.

Last year: surfed twice.
Left turkey for woman to finish off (she was PISSED), and friend left their goods in the oven on super low simply because they wanted to get out for the double as well.

Anyone given Carapace wetsuits a try? I'm usually between a XXL and XLT and was intrigued by the idea of a custom suit...

Wednesday 6pm - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

Long period is better. Give it fair plus-still plenty of good sized dumpers at the shore break. Mostly Hella close out, but I dig that stuff.

It’s with heavy hearts that we announce that Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz has passed away. He’d spent the last days of his life surrounded by his family and friends, and with support pouring in from around the world through social media channels. The Texas-born, Stanford-educated physician leaves behind an indelible mark on surf culture.

It was surfable but that's about it (usually just a drop then 1 or 2 turns if u were lucky). If this were summer I'd say it was fair but it's November and this is FUBAR. I was shocked at the number of takers this morning given the conditions but then again it is a holiday for some people

So I drink too much. Usually it ends up in everyones misery but last weekend I blacked out and bought a board off of some short homeless guy for a $120. Reason we won't all end up in misery is that I bought it with good intentions in mind. I would resell it to the rightful owner for the same price! right? no!

Only 5 reviews of the SF buoy 46026 and it is hovering around a 3. This is not good. The review by Eric Randall is probably the most creative. You can even find directions to this great nautical instrument! How do you feel about this buoy? We need your inner most emotions about this buoy and how it compares to say your feelings about the gas gauge on your car.
