Finished out some morning work stuff and then kicked off the long weekend by hitting the nearby beach break. Small 2’ plus waves that were stacked and cleaned up by a diagonal offshore wind. No other surfer but I was glad to take it.
Good to get out early this weekend. The summer time hoards are arriving, so I’ll be just going out very early morning on weekdays until day after Labor Day. I made a quick Greenland Test paddle video a few days ago in micro surf. Pretty much just me a few dozen leopard sharks in 2’ waves. Need to get it edited this weekend maybe.
Yeah, ditto that. I actually don’t mind going out for dawn patrols. Problem sometimes is that the tide phases don’t line up. At high tide, the waves at smashing into the sea wall at the beach break, whereas the waves are dumping on the cobblestone shore line at the homebreak. The beauty of having the senior pass is that I get to park at the beach break later in the morning. Usually, the free on-street parking will be gone by 8 or 9 AM. But, the paid state lots are slower to fill because of the $15 parkng fee.
No sharks here (usually)… Does that keep the swimmers on land?
Went down to walk the beach break after breakfast. Still some baby waves rolling. Not many people at all around. Could be because it’s cloudy, or folks have gone down to the Cape. Either way, a nice stroll down and back the length of the beach. Teenage lifeguards don’t know what to do with themselves.
