Marlon and I got a late start this morning - we didn't get to the beach until 8:20 or so. The wind was up (trades are back) and the tide was rising. The waves were fun but small, especially compared to the past several weeks. No matter - I brought out the foil and got several waves - not long sweeping rides, but standup and go for a bit until I get thrown off rides. Marlon took some time got up a few times also. We both agreed that we need to get our weight further out forward. My last ride I had my front foot on the 'iwa' painted on the board and I had a long ride, but wasn't sure if the board popped up - probably a sign that that point was the 'too much - too far' spot.
We end up spending about two hours out on the water today.
Unless we get a big west swell that wraps around, today's surf is likely typical of what we'll be surfing for the next several months - and that's perfectly fine with me!
