Well the swell came in today(about head to head and a half on the sets) but it was a bit sloppy, kind of a mixed swell and it rained off and on. I got lucky and hit it late at low tide after a heavy rain shower. It was good for about 40min then the wind started. Got a nice stand up barrel on my first wave. I was the only one out.
Ok I’ve never done one of these. I’ve done basic airs but this is the mac daddy of airs. I think I’m gonna try one of these on a board I don’t care about breaking. I found a good tutorial insight Read More→
I was browsing other beach related camps, and I remembered this one. My brother and I went to this camp about 5 years ago in Cancun. We had a blast. I definately recommend this one, you get to hang out, play v-ball ,and party with the pros at really cool tropical destinations. Looks like they have really grown in the last 5 years. http://www.volleyballvacations.com
Geared up, went to the beach, and the waves just weren’t doing it. A couple of my friends in the line up yesterday told me a big swell (around 10-12ft) is supposed to be heading our way today and last through the weekend. Nobody was out today and the ocean looked a bit stormy and unorganized, so I decided to take a break and surf the internet.
I usually surf about 3 hours in the morning and if the conditions are right another 2 1/2 hours just before sunset. Yesterday the waves were fun and the conditions stayed good through the day, so between the morning and sunset I put in about 6 hours. Felt a little tired today so the lousy conditions are a good excuse to take a break, and if the waves are pushing 10 ft tommorow I’ll be nice and fresh.
This is a work in progress, so if you can think of any lingo to add to this post leave a coment and I will add it. Read More→
Today the waves were similar to yesterday waist high to chest high, a little less clean very shifty and the wind kicked in after about an hour. Today all you could really work on was trying to be in the right spot. I focused on trying to take a more aggressive approach to catching Read More→
Tody the waves were small(waist to chest high) but the conditions were clean and glassy for the first couple of hours, but I caught a few good ones. I can’t complain when there was only about 4 people in the line up, 2 of which were beginners. I was working on generating speed. Weighing in at about 205lbs Read More→
It’s sometimes hard to remember what our old life was like back in the U.S. When we decided to make the move, we actually just did it without too much fuss over researching and analyzing the place. I know it would have driven me crazy trying to wade through all of the info on the internet. All we knew was that we loved this little beach town, and would take each day as it came.
