i ventured out for 30 minutes of surfing after work today. blustery winds, and some big sets, but fairly sloppy and mushy. i got two quick rides in and decided to save my energy for thursday. i watched some excellent surfing for a good half hour before i went into the water, including a longboarder and a guy on an orange fish who were ripping. and after the short session, i bought an ice cream sandwich and watched the sunset. bliss.
