Had a fun afternoon session yesterday. Low tide waist/stomach high bowly little waves coming in, albeit a bit inconsistent. I actually got to spend some time figuring out my Cherry Simms 21 (Simmons style board)- I am very stoked as the board has full-on hull planing speed with incredible fish properties (front foot surfing with back foot over the fin cluster). The board is so fast and it likes to stay close to the pocket. I can't wait to take it out on an chest/shoulder high incoming tide swell- looks like she will love long open walls. It feels good to be back in the ocean more frequently. The water is cold but still very tolerable (40 degrees Fahrenheit), but the temp will certianly keep dropping over the next six or seven weeks.
