We flew Southwest to San Diego. They charge $50 each way for SUPs. Hassle free and no damage. Near impossible to damage when the board is wrapped in a near hard case of foam, then slipped into our board bags. Here are photos of the foam case. It's split at the middle. This makes it easy to remove the board at the hotel, then repack for the trip back home. No need to rewrap or re-tape anything. Total cost of foam about $30.

Today we met our old friend Brendan, a life long surfer who grew up in Southern California. His dad was a lifeguard at Swamis in the 50s, surfing redwood boards back in the day. We know Brendan from the few years he lived in North Carolina, windsurfing and kite surfing Carolina Beach. All the old wind crew know Brendan. It was great to see him again.

We surfed Tourmaline this morning. It was small, and strangely crowded. So we made a run to the Wahoo Taco Shop, then drove up the coast. We discovered Cardiff Reef looking fun with only 3 people out! Tip, watch out for the $71.00 parking ticket. The ticket booth was closed. In Florida, that means free access. In California, it means you're bait for the parking police.
