Having ocean surfed the last 3 out of 4 days, I feel like I’m on a bit of a surfing safari. And I’d be crazy not to take advantage of the good weather and waves. The summer surf crowds appear to be staying away, most likely due to high gas prices. The waves have been peeling clean left and right, offering up some of the longest rides I’ve ever had.

On Friday I busted out my surf kayak, as the waves built to a clean 6 ft, during my session. Nice. The waves offered me my first “up and over the falls” experience. I survived, and was very happy the new outfitting I installed in my boat enabled a fast roll. Someone once described rolling my surf boat like rolling a door. I think thats a pretty accurate description.
