Session 7167: 9 Days of No Surfing

Day 167
9 days of being out of the water!

It has been 9 days of being out of the water and that's amazingly a long time for me. I must admit though that this has been a busy time for me at work, then the condition deteriorated for a long time too, adding up to the total of 9 days.

Every time I go out after more than a couple of days of non-surfing, I start to feel like I am rusty and my muscles have already atrophied. That fear is usually cleared after catching the first wave.

The waves at the Jetty this afternoon was very small; not bigger than the hip size. I took out the trusted 7'2 Egg board and that worked out quite well though the rides were short and the waves were crumbling not giving me much chance to get a long ride.

I have been itching to get out and amount of frustration accumulates for not surfing for so long, so I was so glad I was able to get out under the clear skies and not much wind, and crisp 52 F degree water.

Have you been surfing lately?
