Here's a little video I threw together showing my SanO session with Cookie (and others) from my vantage point.
Nice! I was bummed for capoboy! His back! He needs to get back on sup. That prone paddling is the worst for your back...shoulders too! I was lol when you fell off paddling out! Vid looked so good on my 22" HD monitor. Perfect day w/the wind and weather. would be amazing to catch that place OH.

Sweet travel log vid, Creek. Enjoyed that one quite a bit. Looks like the adventure of a lifetime.
Was curious about rinsing boards off after surfing. I see so many people doing that and always I always considered it a waste of water.

Thanx to all the zoners who posted and followed my 2019 California sup trip. Especially want to thank Digger for the parking pass and heater, and also TallDude for the heads up on when to hit San Onofre.
The Standup Zone has truly changed my life and been an awesome inspiration to me. 

I get so much footage and photos on my trip that I spend all my nites downloading and reviewing..... too tired to make anything of it. The next day I get more..... I'm lost in images
Pretty much the same here. Especially w/us only having 10 days we make the most of our time and try not to waste it in front of a computer screen.

I'll be honest, initially I thought your trip was gonna be a bust given the rain and incoming Pacific nastiness but holy cow it looks like you've been scoring in a big time way!!!  Stoked for ya!!!!
Yea, same here. Was really considering myself lucky to have surfed a bunch of good days.

I'm home now having returned safely and will start editing my media. Quite a bit after 10 days but surfercooks tend to do that!
Was lucky to have mild temps and light winds for my return. Was a beautiful spring-like day and we were even treated to a cool halo-moon. took me a while to remember exactly how to connect the Session5 to my phone and navigate settings for Night Mode photos.

Did you keep your close on?
Both me and my wife kept our clothes on. We are not a fan of public nudity. Some of the overweight older people sure enjoyed it.

How are you keeping the wifey from revolting? The combo of a surf trip with the better half along has ended up with her bumming as I surfed many hours or me bumming as I didnít surf enough.
How long are staying out there?
Ahh...the age old dilemma for us surfers w/non-surfing wives. Luckily here in CA the mornings are best and she runs while I surf. Granted she's usually only 90 mins and I'm more like 3 hrs but we have managed to stay happy. The remaining daylight hrs are reserved for time together boppin' around San Diego county.

 I've not done one evening sesh though and the fomo has been a bit hard to handle missing the occasional evening glass-off. But I'm now 7 days in a row in the waves so lig. Also we've watched a girlie Netflix movie almost every nite. The girlie flicks have actually been quite entertaining and funny.

Yesterday we hit Torrey Pines glider port/Blacks Beach cliff access. She was SO scared to do the descent fearing a stumble would award her an injury. Luckily some ladies talked her into it.

Me and Digger were diggin' it this morning. Leash broke, I had a long swim in, and my hands started gettin' numb, but still the stoke was strong. 6 days in a row now!

Five days, five sessions, five spots in a row so far. My NJ connection out here hooked me up w/a retro longboard and we hit a spot in Carlsbad. Was pretty chilly, yesterday and today. Both dys I saw guys w/boots, gloves , and a hood. Brrrr!! But the stoke has been strong and alot of guys are out every day. Talked a bit w/a young guy yesterday in the water said he was here tentin' it in San Elijo State campgrounds. Said he'd come down from Long Beach.

SOLOSHOT fired off nicely in Carlsbad for us.

Yea, FRP! Nice surfing in those glassy waist highs. SS nailed that sesh. 
1.5 mm gloves, 3 mm boots? That gear would NOT cut the cold in NJ during winter. Pretty much need 5mm and 7mm rubber on hand for our polar temps.
Keep that nose up, Dad!
I probably asked already but why FRP?

If walking the beach and picking up trash for hours and hours during down time from the water is considered aerobic then I'm good. Cuz I really hate regimented exercise!
I've heard that specific activity is called "Plogging". Although that would be the jogging/picking up ver. I only jog when it's necessary to get back to my house when items have been forgotten at the beach.

I saw you this morning down at dogpatch, i was chatting with Dave Daum from Kings when you walked up.  I wanted to introduce myself but you disappeared and I had to get to work.  Hope you got some good ones.
Hopefully next time. Thanx for saying something.

Great day at San Onofre. Amazing place. Most Zoners I ever met at once. Very cool! Really appreciate all the hospitality. That 10' Coreban TallDude lent me was a treat in the gentle peelers.

SOLOSHOT likes hat place!

Hooked up w/Digger for a successful Seaside Reef sesh. Man was that nice! He showed me the lay-out and we started on the wave count right off the bat. Dig was slicin' it up sweet on a 9 something King's tri-fin. I called it the Twiggy model it's so narrow, thin, and curvy! He let me try it and it was difficult for me to adjust after floatin' around on the fatty Assassin.
Collaged some shots.

cookie! nice wave--enjoy the trip!
Never tire of hearin' that! Thanks.
