early morning session
woke up at 4 a.m. itching to surf and made it down to the water by 5:45 a.m. first ride was the best, a nice left down a line that was walling up and lots of fun. it flattened out later on but still is a great way to start the day. wednesday is supposed to bring 10 foot waves.
here's a blurb from an old friend, and a photo he took, i love the imagery: "went out the Maldive Islands in the Indian Ocean and spent a week fishing with a couple of local guys. We'd take a dhow out a sunset and sail over to where the waves would break across a coral reef and fish from the back side of the wave, throwing big lures into the white water and pulling them out like injured bait fish. Caught a ton of fish, little bit of everything. The guys didn't speak a lick of english so we'd gesture about what our game place was; troll for sail fish, jig for grouper or cast for trevallie."
