Thursday and Friday of this past week saw some truly great weather in New England and also marked my return to the lineup after the obligatory "too damn cold" layoff. To prep, I had been watching surf flicks like I was watching game film and mentally listing all the stuff I was going to try to work into my (limited) repertoire. I have also been getting in some exercise and some yoga to stay flexy.
How did I fare?
Ha. Well, rust is rust. My paddling wasn't great and my timing was off so I whiffed more than connected and the water still isn't exactly bath water but at the end of the day, I'm chuffed that I got back out there and these sessions are just the first of many more. Not to mention, I'm heading to St. Augustine, Fla in a couple months. Surfing in trunks.
