The wife looking for a wave. Kokatat Gore-Tex Drysuit is the yellow and blue mystery uniform.
First session of the season with booties, gloves, and hood. Didn't go so well. Booties and deck pads don't mix. Stumbled like a clown and couldn't surf worth a hoot. Finally tossed the booties and had a good time. Booties and a bare deck would probably work fine, but with a deck pad, forget about it. You have no chance of shuffling the feet. The gloves I wore were a little slick on the paddle shaft, so I waxed the palms and then they were great.
This was my second session with my new 8" Wingnut (narrow base, fat tip) fin in the Angulo. I really like this fin. It loosened up the board and gave it more speed down the line. The fin supplied with the board was a classic surf shape, wide base, swept 9 1/2".
