Guessing Game

Guessing Game

1065 600x326 1

With the memory of a winter full of waves still fresh in our heads, the morning surf checks
have become a little bit of a challenge.  Breaks that had seemed to be a sure thing for
months on end, have now gone flat or funky.

Wind swells are the order of the day, and with them comes….wind.
It’s all about getting it while the wind isn’t actually on it.

Whether you get a clean session or not, depends on the weather.
And sometimes it can change during your session.

This afternoon had its moments, unfortunately they happened before we got there….
But these guys made weak conditions still fun to watch.

No real lines were coming in, mostly jumbled peaks.
Quick drops and disappearing waves.

Dave Oettinger paddled out reluctantly and got a few fun ones.

Another day, another place.
Only one guy out. Luckily it was Bobby Morris, so we had something to shoot.

As you can tell, this day the wind was not an issue…..yet.

Bobby’s been travelling a lot, as usual, so he’s glad to be home for a while.

We rarely travel, but we’re always glad to be home….

Random Note: Remember Captain Video?
Found this on the beach. It’s gotta be a few years old….

Another day, another place.
Two amigos, Daniel Prichard and Micaiah Furukawa, find a wind free environment.

And after a quick snack, they enjoy it, all to themselves.

Looks like Daniel’s enjoying himself.

Micaiah eyes an empty canvas.
Looks like it  might be slightly offshore…

So there’s what we saw in early summer, 2010.
You may have got more better surf, or less worse surf.
At this point, it’s a guessing game.
