Lil' Bertha waves

Was able to escape the hustle of tourists and catch a few waves today. After a broken toe and stitches was sure nice to STAND UP and Surf. 
 Getting use to a custom Stu Sharpe modified Wave Hog . Experimenting with fins and placement. 

Getting dropped by a lil' tadpole, who will be surfing in a couple years, I'm sure of that.. His Dad must of pushed him in several dozen waves.  Some successful and some not so successful. He always came up smiling. 

 Couple shots from today. Was great to be out there despite not being able to surf with friends..
Much needed.. Saltwater therapy  ..

Summer time Blues, .. crowds in the water..

When there are waves mid-day on a Sunday in the middle of summer, these are the conditions you have to deal with..  Tourist; '' Let go swim in the surf area by the surfers''
'' We locals do this new thing where we don't judge tourists at first look, we wait like 15 seconds to see             
if they act like F-n idiots, then we judge..''

Glad I missed that Zoo !

Shared SUP with the Sanders from Wa.
