Worth the wait... waves!

If you've been following along (and you should... checking in at least three times a day!) then you know that I extended this trip to try to score a couple of the solid NW swells projected to hit. Yesterday was the day- it basically went off until around noon... then the wind came up but it was so sideshore that the lower racetrack was still very surfable. And practically empty. Check it out:

Early morning... thick and lumpy and really fun.
Unlike this guy, I wasn't going to sit around and watch it happen... on it!
Tailgate breakfast with a side of right hander....
I've seen this cat down here many times today I finally got a chance to meet him- and look who made his board! Enrique was ripping on this little Stamps quad fish. This shot is from the afternoon- check out the inside runner, protected from the wind and grinding.... yeeehaw.
