Fun weekend

Hit the Cape on Saturday and caught some nice waves coming in from the south wrapping around for some long rides. Nice enough day for just boardshorts and a rashguard. I was the only one though…great to be so warm blooded and on a standup board. It was nice for about 2 hours then the wind shifted onshore and it got a bit choppy…wave size picked up but the tide coming in made for some hard short rides.

I finally managed a nice hard layback cutback without falling in. Actually felt like I have some skills this weekend…:)

Sunday was fun but a heavy south wind made for tougher conditions. Fast swooping wind driven rides with a mixed swell that was bowling up and making for some fun floats off the lip. A great workout paddling back up the beach against the wind each time to get position for the next ride. Time for a relaxing flatwater cruise today.
