Not a bad way to end a Monday

  Took a ride over just in case there was something pushing through at high tide. Didn't look like much from the beach but was well worth the paddle out. A bit on the mushy side but most rolled all the way through to the sand and offered some nice long little slides.  Warm water, an empty line-up and a fat 9'10" Zeph Carrigg underfoot..... Nice way to end the day.

Something blue

 Blue skies and chilly, near crystal clear water the last few days.  Three late afternoon sessions were a very welcomed treat.  Fun log worthy waves with plenty of good vibes out in the line-up. Had a bus load of waves on the 9'10" G. Propper last night. The time it allows me to spend up on the nose is increasing with each surf.  Finding it to be a favorite within my current quiver. Also, got a chance to slide a few on a friend's sweet little 7'8" vintage Ernie Tanaka V-bottom. Slippery little thing and amazingly fast.  Good times!

Road Trip

Rolled out to Battle Creek, MI for the weekend to attend a wedding. My buddy's son tied the knot with his longtime GF on a lovely 4th of July afternoon. The lakeside residents were all locked and loaded and provided an awesome fireworks display after sunset. Long drive but well worth it. Good times with good friends!
Ironic. I cut grass for a living and this is was our 1st pit-stop. :)

Chocolate anyone???

All I need now is a wave to ride her on.....

I finally got around to getting the little 6'10" 1970s Challenger I picked up over the winter all cleaned up and watertight. Eager to see how she goes.

B-Rob ties the knot....

My young surf buddy and brand new USCG Diver married his lovely GF yesterday afternoon. The newly married couple has a few more days in town before moving to Hawaii where Rob will be assigned to a buoy tender as a member of their dive team. Poor guy, imagine having to travel around the south Pacific and get paid to dive near exotic ports of call. I really feel for him. Ha! :)

Congratulations Amigos!

Sunny Saturday!

Rolled out of bed early hoping to find a bit of swell on this sun-shiney Saturday morning. No joy in the swell dept. Cape May was a solid ankle high and clean and the Rocks were a choppy sloppy mess.
On the plus side, we got our little man back from Summer camp yesterday and its a beautiful day for my buddy B-Rob and his lovely bride to exchange some wedding vows. 
Life is good. :)
He survived :)

A motley crew for sure!
