I have this policy because,
- Time in the water is prcious to me. If I know I can ride the waves there, I don't get greedy. I want to get in the water, and now!
- There is 50/50 chance that other location can be worse or better. I have been "burned" numerous times, and wasting lot of gas and time in the process.
I have another policy. Take more than one boards with me. Especially a longer and shorter board (given a condition). This has helped me on this session. I had hard time catching these outside waves without much power with my 6'5. That fixed it when I got back and gotten out the 9'0 Magic.
See You Out There!
