Better than Nothing!

No photos today - I took a few before getting in, but they're not very interesting.  Just a short entry:

Forecasts were small at 1-3 feet, tide was high but only 4-foot and wind forecast was sketchy, but the water is warming to 67/68 and it's been two weeks, so I made the venture South.  Met Mark in the lot and was surprised to see around 10 sticks at the main peak and an equal number further down at LG 1 below the Park.  There was an inside bowl and some chest-high set waves - better than expected - and what very little wind there was came from the ESE.

By the time Mark & I got in, there were only four scattered around the main peak, and through the rest of the two-hour session, it varied from one to four, all local regulars.  So there was no wave competition and the vibe was relaxed.  It was cool and overcast, so, instead of trunking it as I'd hoped I wore the spring shorty which was comfortable in the 67 degree water.  

There were some surprising fun waves, ranging from waist to an occasional shoulder high peak.  The Park was doing its usual thing, the sand bars setting up peaks for some decent slides.

Nothing to write home about, perhaps, but a nice little morning.  It's always good to get wet.
