End of December, 20mph on-shore winds, chest high waves appearing out of the white caps and telephone pole sized drift wood... or combat surfing. Good term.
Tom wore his helmet, which after I got out, I thought was a pretty good idea. Usually the helmets just keep your head warm, this day they actually might have prevented head injury.
Despite the "challenging" conditions it was a great day, and who can complain about sunshine?
I discovered after about 2 hours that the cord attaching my leash to the board was a bit fragile and after diving under one wall of white water, I had to swim into shore to retrieve my ride. 30 minutes later, and a bit farther out, my re-tie failed again and after swimming in again, I decided to call it a day...
A good day of sharing waves with 3 other SUP's and 3 kayakers.
Happy New Year.
