After yesterday's Stand Up Paddle Surf session with old faithful I was hoping that I could break out my 9'6" SUPS board and have some fun with a new swell that we've been watching. Another family day outing to the beach!
We roll up and I was excited to see 3-5 feet of swell breaking down the line. Good shape, the ocean had the pre-swell jitters, a lot of movement going on. The nice thing was the crowd had yet to show. The was one other Stand Up Paddle Surfer out there and he was doing his part of sharing the Aloha. Good guy, not a wave hog kook.
As I set up the goods for the ohana I was watching and contemplating. See I also brought my 6'4" short board just in case it was a tweener kind of day. I know I would have had the normal Stand Up Paddle fun but I've been craving a little prone session lately. So I busted out the shortie and had at it.
By the way the water is still freezing. Rubber is a luxury.
Enjoy the swell. If you're learning to Stand Up Paddle Surf go to a SUPS friendly beach and have fun there during this swell. Keep it real, keep it safe and you'll keep it fun for all.
