Thank you SUPsports. I think I'm going to bring it, but may just shortboard.

Aloha Southbay,
No reason not to bring it...I would...you never know...;-)
There very well could be a swell...and, a high performance SUP or shortboard would serve you well...

Way back in the day before the massive ginormous development at the tip...we used to camp on a private beach of a family we met...under that palm tree in pic...and, there was a mysto reef that was never surfed...fun right with an iffy takeoff...lots of stinging jellyfish, though...the spot is completely gone...totally engulfed by a huge resort hotel...

Lots has changed there...but, still lots of fun and adventure to be had...never thought that I would see Los Cabos with a travel advisory...

U.S. citizens have been warned not to travel to popular Mexican tourist destinations Cancun and Los Cabos due to an uptick in drug cartel violence in the areas.

The U.S. State Department has issued travel warnings for the areas, following shootings linked to gang turf wars at the popular beach destinations for foreign visitors.

Indeed...soulmates and travel partners since college...;-)
The bonds that we made while experiencing multiple wild west adventures and near misses down in the Baja...forged a strong relationship...you really find out what people are made of... and, whether you want them in your fox hole when the caca really hits the fan...;-)
Our relationship even withstood me teaching her how to windsurf in the Gorge...;-)
Believe me...teaching the person you sleep with...is not recommended...good thing she's occupied with horses right now and is not interested in learning to foil herself...don't think my nerves could handle it...;-)

Deb is just great, I always enjoy seeing her. You lucked out. Took me a few tries to find a keeper. I know what you mean about not teaching anything to the one you sleep with. Diane and I were business partners first, got together quite a bit later, married about four years after starting the business. I figured if we could run a business together without her slitting my throat, that we'd be good. I don't know what the hell she was thinking.

I've never tried to teach her anything.

Hopefully, they will have things back together after Lidia...substantial damage to the infrastructure at the tip...
Obviously overshadowed by the catastrophe in Houston...but, still a major dealio...

Not to mention the continued cartel mayhem...
