The Devil Made Me Do It

I blew off work today!

The things a person will do to score a session on a Paddle Surf Hawaii 9'6. Wohoo!
Great surf today. I saw a shortboarder get 7-8 seconds inside a barrel and come flyin out the end. Sweet! The air temp was 45 at best today, but that didn't stop me or anyone else. Lots of surfers out today. I scored a morning session, then lunch, then another afternoon session on the wife's 9'6. It doesn't get any sweeter than this. Todays photos were shot right before dark with dying surf. The wife had to work, so she only caught an hour on her board today. Her piggy husband scored 4 hours on her board. hehe.

great shots. i like the enhanced versions a lot. hunter really took that one on the chin, huh?

btw/ in an earlier post you mentioned your 45 degree air temp. man, that's warm! yesterday when i went out, at dawn, it was 28 and got up to 32. but when there's no wind, and you're wearing a drysuit, it can be almost too warm.

ordered a new paddle yet? new board? come on, buy now! (so i don't have to ...)

OK, I'll spill the beans. Blane picked out a 10 footer for me (from his shop inventory). It should be shipped to me this week.

I have Pu'u Kialoa paddles coming for the wife and I, with floral patterns. It will be 2-3 weeks before the paddles are in my hands.
