Christobal makes waves for our beaches..

Here is what 3.9 ft at 10 Sec looks like when it reaches our beach. Jamie, Jesse, John and I had fun sharing the waves that TS/Cane' Christobal sent us. 
 It was a one tide spectacular session. If you were lucky to get out you were rewarded with nature's greatest gift to surfers, WAVES...

'' Breakfast Club '' Paddle

Early group of paddlers this morning. I called the ''Breakfast Club.''.All on the water before 8am,  enjoying the Calibogue Sound showing her calmest mood.  The sound was full of sea life with not a boat in sight.. A manatee payed us a visit with an abundance of bait fish moving about. Nice paddle to Buck Island and back, a 2 mile paddle with all first timers to Stand Up...  
Thanks for an enjoyable paddle...
