Last Day, Success!

It's vacay, I've been lazy and haven't kept up with the blog. Last weekend the waves were great. I was catching them consistently, the only problem was the amount of traffic out there. Lots of people in the water and they were much faster in setting up for the wave. So I bailed early many times.

We are heading back up to Philly today so I went down to the beach for one last sesh. The waves were only about knee to waist high. By most standards, not that good, great for a n00b like me tho. I was able to charge many waves, right after another. Stood up on 90% of them. It was a great way to end the trip. I consider it a success. I ready to move on from the foam training board to a proper longboard. OCNJ here I come!

Waves Bigger Today, Not As Successful

Yesterday waves were smaller but choppy. I was at about 70% success with the waves I caught.
Today the waves were bigger and get better throughout our session. By the time they were really good I was physically tapped out. Didn't fully ride any waves today. Fail. Tomorrow is another day.

Successful Day Yesterday, Off Today

Did 2 sessions yesterday. First session was my best with another 80% success rate. I took a break and went out again but the waves were rougher and too close together. I got thrown off of one right at the top. It was time to go in after that.

Taking today off to give my shoulders a break from the last 2 days of intense paddling.

Success Yesterday

Stood up and rode 80% of the waves I caught yesterday. The last wave was the best, I was super stable and even carved a bit! If I can keep that percentage up for the rest of the week I'll call it mission accomplished.
