Mike predicted it, and I had faith. Got the work done
earlier in the week, and got there super early today. By
10 am Waddell was blowing - good sign for coast sailing.
There even seemed to be some swell....all the right components
for a sweet day.

On the drive down, Waddell was blowing hard, and Scotts looked
good also - I had a good feeling about dport.

Got to Dport at 2:30, about 10 people out sailing on small
stuff. I went out on 5.2/8'8"(207#) and was powered perfectly -
not too much for riding waves, not too little to get back into
the lineup. the waves were VERY nice - waist high with
an occasional logo high set coming through. I sailed the
lower reef, the upper one had bigger waves, but the wind
is more fluky there. The waves were nice peelers with just
enough wind to power you through sweet bottom turns.

Some weed to contend with....on one ride I was so zenned on the ride
that I did not notice the bed of kelp. At the fastest part of a
bottom turn, I came to a complete stop and was launched like
a mother - rude awakening from my peaceful focused state. No
worries, I regained the state on the next ride.

This was BY FAR my best wave sailing day of the year. I
got the most rides, had the best jumps, was dialed into my all came together.

"Nothing left to do but Smile, Smile, SMILE!!!!!!!"
