May 1st a few mellow waves
« on: May 03, 2019, 07:12:03 PM »
Cox Bay, Tofino beautiful spring morning. A few small pealing waves. The board is a 8’7” Sunova Creek, 115 litres. The music is by Grayson Gilmour our nephew from New Zealand who recently became a proud father shortly after moving into their new home in Wellington. Good to be out there! It was crowded at a good take off point so I went down a bit and caught a bunch of waves then almost everyone followed me. I swung back to the good takeoff and voila......the last wave was unoccupied and my best wave of the day.

Cheers

Bob

Beautiful day Bob.
I have always wondered in Long Beach would be a good spot to really paddle away from the parking lots and get some privacy :-)

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback.

Luc you are correct that at long beach you can surf alone if you are willing to paddle down the beach a bit.

Creek what can I say......your namesake board is so much fun to surf. Your advice when I order it to go a bit bigger was good. I would have really struggled if I sized down.

Pono yes! A road trip. I have never witnessed someone flying a foil here. There are definately foilable waves and at Cox when it is big the waves will break more than a kilometre out. I know this from experience after a long swim in when my leash broke. Keep in touch. If you need a place to park Fritz you got it.

Cheers

That sure was purdee, Purdy! Looks like ur SS has "To the left" syndrome. Mine did that a few times also!
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"
