Tower Beach Sea Pines Session

With the NE winds blowing 15-20 knots and the Low off our coast the surf was choppy. We ( Jesse and I) decided to hit the Southern tip if the island near Tower Beach where the winds were offshore and currents strong. Smaller waist high waves were breaking. Challenging session but fun. Steep take offs and thumping shore break but rewarding. I took a few on the head.
But STOKED..

Jesse had the GoPro those shots below ...

Happy Birthday Jamie.. Paddle on..

“To celebrate a birthday means to say to someone: ‘Thank you for being you.’ … On a birthday we do not say, ‘Thanks for what you did, or said,or accomplished.’ No, we say: ‘Thank you for being born and being among us.’”

Operation R&R The Shattuck Family

Had the honor to paddle with the Shattuck family who was visiting Hilton Head with the Operation R&R Program.
..................................................................................................
Operation R&R is a non-profit organization designed to provide our service men and women an opportunity to reconnect with their spouses and children upon their return from Iraq or Afghanistan.
...............................................................................................................
Paddleboarding with them was a heart felt honor and I was proud to share my passion of Stand Up with them despite having a cold and feeling under the weather. What an awesome day.
Never forget all who serve and have served in the armed forces protecting our great country.

Army Pride, Our hero.
