As we continued around the point, it was clear that the swell
had a lot of north in it, making Depressions the place to be.

A strong offshore breeze was
holding up the lip, making for some
hollow barrels. But these were not

That’s what days like this are good for. Having fun and trying out new stuff.

As we made our way back to the parking lot, we just
had to say, there’s no place like home.
