Paddle in the Gulf again....

Went for a 5 mile paddle today in the Gulf near Hernando Beach. I paddled to a couple islands that lay offshore in the flats. Was a beautiful day, water in low 70* F, air in the mid 80*f . Summer for me...The little 8-10 WP from Starboard paddles pretty good for a surf model.

Few little waves this afternoon

The cool front was dropping thru causing rainy windy conditions but the surf cleaned up just for a little while as the thunder clouds passed bye . I was in the right moment in time to score a few clean thigh + high waves. I did miss my few SUP friends I usually share the waves with....I experienced about 30 mins of light winds before the strong gusty winds blew thru chopping up the surf , all with-in 10 minutes. It went to SHIT..... FAST... .Was great to get in the water and I'm really enjoying the new 8-10 WP.
