Great video and beautiful waves Rick.  You must feel like a million bucks to be getting out again. 

Ironically, your use of your newly enhanced vision is exactly what made you that much more capable of spotting the sphincter tightening "potential problem" which ended the session.  Hopefully your better eyesight doesn't make you more aware of "reasons" NOT to go out, but it's pretty obvious you know what you're signing up for at that location.

Noticed that your buddy's board has some type of orca-like (presumably "anti shark") pattern on the bottom.  Did it come that way, or is that a custom job?  Is it his conscious choice to employ that as a shark deterrent?  I've gotten into the habit of painting the bottoms of boards white with black stripes whenever I do repair work, so I'm personally curious about what others are doing...

Over 50, but usually pushing it like I'm 25 and paying for it later.

Have fun in NY, tell Bert Iím representing Sunova big time in Novi, forecast looks epic for surf and kitesurfing next week, Sat 37í@15secs! Fully loaded with Sunova boards (PtBreak, Flow & Boss) and Ocean Rodeo kites. Stoked out of my mind to get up there tomorrow for ten days!
