Buddy hooked me up with a new ver of Premiere. Worked nicely! Full rubber at this point.
Thanx, Zoners!

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"

@ Cookie

I envy you people who can go out sup surfing in cold air and cold water. I'm a wuss in those conditions and to top it off, I don't like wearing a wetsuit.

But for you guys who can take those air and water temperatures, I salute you.

And I do like you showing your 4 fin quad setup for you board in the beginning of your video. Thanks for sharing your videos. It is a pleasure to watch them.

Sweet cookie. I can't believe these cold fronts came so fast. The good thing about it are the diluted line up around these parts. I love the paddle guitar move... Goes along with your theme tune :)

People ask me all the time.... Don't you get cold out there? I tell them no, I'm warmer out there surfing than I would be sitting at home. I usually don't feel any discomfort at all when I'm surfing. Even when it's 30 degrees and snowing.

I don't mind wearing a wetsuit. I could wear one all day. The key for me to staying warm is to put my wetsuit on at home. That pre-heats it so that when I get there I can just grab my board and go. I would totally freeze if I had to suit up at the beach like a lot of people do. I drive home in my wetsuit too. It just makes the whole process easier. Most of the places I surf are within 40 minutes of my house.

I "might" have to try a wetsuit. Our water temperatures down at Surfside (Freeport) don't get that cold in the winter time. Once the water temperature goes below 66 degrees F, since I don't wear a wetsuit, I put myself in "drydock", if you get my drift, for the winter.

Below is a table which give the average water temperature for the Texas coast for the up coming 6 months. Check out the one that says, "Freeport".

Another nice video cookieman, thanks for doing the work to entertain us!!
I always like hearing your guitar playing as well  :)

I wore a 5mm suit last week. Screw that.... I'm heading to Florida on Saturday. ;D ;D ;D
It's not that I get cold in a wetsuit, but at 72, the 5mm suit is starting to affect my performance quite a bit.
