A bit of draw back happened this morning. I got in this morning. The was
still pretty rough and disorganized. Nothing really big, not much bigger
than shoulder size. The on-shore wind was a bit strong through, may be 10-20
I paddled to the out side no problem. I took my first ride and then dipped
down. I saw the board so I was ready to grab it. It momentarily disappeared
then the rail hit my right cheek really hard. My nose was bleeding rather
hard, so as I try to get back in, the board was all bloody mess. There is a
huge hump on my right cheek now with a couple of minor cuts on my nose and
If I had a helmet on, it could have helped at it covered the cheek.
A lesson learend. I am always going to wear it.
Another lesson, if you don't see your board, duck under.
