Sick and Weak- and I just want to surf!

What happens when you mix Airborne, Advil Cold and Sinus, Nyquil and a large vanilla latte? Zombie death sleep. And I'm still sick. I didn't even get in the water today, had to sit on the beach and watch all the usual suspects having fun while I moped around feeling sorry for myself. I'm going to go do a shot of Jack Daniels right now, it's supposed to help. CameraGrom sent me this video he shot and edited from yesterday- check it out:

Nice vid...hope you feel better. Maybe this is your pre-New Years hangover. SUP instead....
Cheers, srfnff

Thanks Gary-
I'm fighting it off. On the other hand, Mike did come by and pick up the Mahi and... a little something I sent with him for you. I need you to make some sense of it for me. I think you'll get a kick out of it. I rode the big Angulo board- I really thought it surfed well. Even wrapped some cutbacks on it- a nice ride.
Cheers.

John, you are in good company. The waves have been gangbusters around here, and I've been bonked with the mother of all head colds since Christmas day. You know it's a bad one when hot Airborne has become your favorite beverage. As of today, I am on the downhill side of it, but still couldn't have surfed if I tried. The only upside is that I did do some more work on the Waveyarder, and I'm finally done milling wood and making parts. Stay tuned!

gotta try that combo right now, like today. but don't forget the Zicam zinc nasal spray ... though it hasn't helped me out much this time: i'm sick as well and missed two days of pretty good surf because of it.

Hey Linter:
Thanks for the tip on the Zicam- anything to stop the pounding in my head! Hope you get better soon- this sucks.

Andy-
My brother's wife told me something nasty was going around up there in SC- took their son 3 weeks to get over it! Hope that's not what I've got. Can't wait to see the finished product- maybe done by the time you're feeling good enough to ride it?

diezapan man thats the only thing that works.john gave some thought to ense run.if we started at s.m. paddle to hotel cali.that would be about a 3.5 mile paddle.with approx.7 spots to surf.need to be on moderate day.due to the wind from the north and water movemet .stay only a very short time at each break to stay cool.the story i told about the road workers car jacking on toll road is true it was on the roger hegecock show today.oh yes iam still sick.captneg9
