San-O Surfing: Cloudy, windy... FUN

Had a really fun day meeting up with some fellow 'Zoners today at the San-O Dog Patch. The day started out looking fairly sour with a nasty little south wind blowing the small surf to rags. It was chilly too. But, like always, if you just fire up enough to get your ass of the beach, things start getting better. It's always like that. Camera Grom accepted a bribe of a breakfast at Tommy's to come up and shoot some vid of us snagging a few. Yes, I know I look ridiculous in that helmet cam... but I did get some cool shots- you're just going to have to check back to see my clip!

Here's Camera Grom's
cut of the day's adventures:

nice little vid, very casual, very cool. who's the cross-stepper in the baggies and wetsuit top? he's good!

Yeah, that guy was KILLING it out there... cross-stepping, hanging ten, cutbacks, that weird cross leg turn etc. Pretty much the right approach for the conditions that day- it looked really good. He was from Carlsbad, I think his name was Coffman?

Can't remember, ripping for sure!
