Had the absolute pleasure of my yearly meetup, (slash) " Can i borrow a board and surf with you?' mission to Cape Cod for the July 4th week with the one and only SuptheCreek.

As per usual, Mr Creek offered up the proceeds of his van to a man that was told 'You can only surf if if you are back here by 9am" by his wife and family.....  Good news....Creek has ALWAYS has met me at dawn the last few years i ventured into his neck of the woods for a session.

Got to Coast Guard beach and had good size (3-4) with some somewhat fat waves. A welcome change from the flat or back brekaing waves of MOCO NJ.

Had the pleasure of meeting fellow zoner Eddyonasup who really gave me pause when he hooked in his Great White shark repellant gizmo.  Needless to say. my 'rests' in between waves were on my knees not my butt when I saw that.

Got to try out the new Sunova Placid which was a great board for the lumpy, big but fat conditions- got me in early but really was great on the wave- at 140L bigger than I would normally surf but as I was keeping al skin out of the water for Mr. Shrak it was great.

 Creek was on the Kanga which worked awesome for him, and Eddy was a on a low volume STarboard Longboard shape- also great for the fat but decent sized swell.

Eddy and I were in 3/2's with Eddy even in boots, and anyone who had surfed with Rick knows......even at 5am. the guy was in trunks. ANIMAL!

anyway....heres a glamor shot and a sunrise shot- and again always an honor to surf with the zoner crew.  Thanks again boys!

Sure LB...

I think you'd like it- I found it very similar to your Super Frank.

 I had a little trouble burying the rail to turn, but that was because I wasnt moving my back foot at all to the rail (I never have to move my back foot on my Genration Wedge- but far thinner and less volume tail)

Once i moved my back foot even an inch closer to the rail it turned really really well.

I dont know how much more size it could have handled.  It was quite bouncy on the head high sets, but in the waist high waves it felt like a perfect option.  Also got into waves very early.  I probably wouldn't have caught one wave based on how soft and rolly they were on my Wedge- the takeoff just never got steep enough.

I still think I would prefer my l41 ST to it- but mostly because we never get waves like that in NJ.  I was taking off earlier than I ever do in NJ on the Placid- just because I could.

it also had a ledge handle which was such a welcome relief from the older Sunovas with the lift handle that as everyone knows just doesnt work well with gloves or mitts.

I have found that these proclamations inhibit ascension to the World Tour.

damn sounds like fun!  Good to see your still gettin' out on your SUP. If you are around this weekend, I might be sojourning to NJ depending on the wind situation.

Good to see you boys, that was fun!
Sunrise sessions are the best!!

See you next time  :)
Have fun in this storm swell!

I am going over to save the trenches and retaining walls I am building at my daughters house.
Just about to install joists and decking.... so I have loose lumber all over the yard. :-\


Hopefully my dying computer will actually send this pic of our morning session
