Surfest 2006

Obviously I am back in Cali, and glad to be! It's been insanely busy since I came home and for some reason I am finding comfort here at work. Perhaps because it's the rountine and the familiar.

I did participate in the 2006 NorCal Women's Surfest. Alison and I were in the same division. We both did extremely well, although there were only 3 of us in the divsion, Alison took 2nd place, and came in at 1st place! Hopefully there will be some pics from the event... especially of us surfing! The conditions were fairly small during our first heat, but were getting closed out and gnarly by the second. The sun never came out that day, and it was pretty cold. Ryan, Alison's boyfriend, and I had to seriously talk Alison into getting back into her wet wetsuit for our 2nd heat. It was that cold.

It was a extremely long, but fun, day! Now that my vacation and the contest are over, it's time for an energy shift and to welcome the fall transition. I am very much looking forward to this!
