Sometimes it’s just what you need it to be

I surfed by myself today in Miramar.  I just needed to get away.  It was kind of funky at first but around dark the wind let up and the tides got right.  It was a blast.  About chest to head high with long swell intervals which can be good if you have a lot on your mind.

Sometimes surfing is not just about the surf as it is about clearing my head.  I caught this sunset on the way out.  Sometimes, that is what it is all about!  It looks like we should have more swell tomorrow.  See you in the water.

Pura Vida!
