Finally, my return to the ocean and surf! It was sunny this weekend so I decided to get my ass back into the water. It was great!!!!! Classic Cowells dawn patrol. I got to Santa Cruz around 7am and it was small but absolutely fun! Surfing that early in the morning marks the beginning of Spring, where the low tides are in the early morning instead of the late afternoon. My first wave was a fast left, just beautiful, with my finger-tips dragging in the face of the wave. Just pure magic. The sandbar had diminished and it's back to the way I love it!
