great afternoon session

We were blessed with some 3-5 ft surf this afternoon. Warm temps graced with the west winds cleaned up the surf. Jesse Cadman took the go pro shots and I snagged a few with the Cannon from the beach. very one had some great rides. 2 dozen surfers and 8 or 9 SUP ers out sharing the waves. 
This is what I like about winter. Water not bad, warm air temps and sharing good waves with  my friends..  Makes for a memorable session to end the 2013 year…  


 Head high fun

Beautiful day to paddle, and fish ...

What a beautiful day,  ''Spring like'' on Dec 4th ..After a trip to the Geek Squad to repair my Mac, had to get out and paddle, so I brought my rod, reel and lures,, Was able to get a few 'schoolie'  reds in my usual spot see a dolphins slam the reds up against the bank and strand feed.  I kept my distance and the pics were too far to zoom in..  …   Gotta love living in the moment..

Chilly Nor Easter waves..

Here are a few pics of Jesse Cadman at the Beach Club getting out in yesterday's developing Nor Easter conditions. Water temps have dropped drastically into the mid-upper 50's *F .  and air temps  just at 50*F with 15- knots,  in side offshore winds.    Water temps dropped fast in just two weeks.
This  =  BBBRRRrrrrrrrrr..   
Booties, Gloves and Hood are the equipment of choice for the next couple three months..  
This means frequent trips south  …..







Jesse all neoprene'd  up and this guy paddles out in water resistant shell. We watched his outerwear fill up with water as he rolled and tumbled in 2 ft of water on the inside..
