Alternative Surf Craft on a Rainy Day
We're down in Virginia Beach again (I wished we lived down here). Today's forecast did call for rain and we got it all while we were at our favorite surf spot. We also had some onshore breeze that chunked up the surf - but boy was it good to get in the salt water again! I brought down the mat, the paipo and the kickboard - but I had the most fun on the mat - most likely a function of how my left hip is hurting and I can't kick as hard while trying to catch the wave. The water was refreshing on initial entry, but you would quickly get accustomed to the cool temp. Fun day despite the rain and sloppy surf!!!
