Sneaky Spring Swell | April 7, 2011

Yes…an annoying alliteration, HA! Ok I’m done…today was another sneaky day — woke up and the tide was really drawn out – waist high at best. As the tide came in I was shooting at the wall with Ryan Schnell and Michael Sander, some larger sets started to come in and I witnessed the high tide push…it’s amazing how it jumps up 1-2ft just with a tide change.
I left the wall ’cause they got out and it was pretty bad, went home and grabbed a bite to eat — when I got back down to the beach Fox Hill was firing, only a few guys out. Toby and Casey both got some great waves as well as some other unknowns. If you unknowns are out there – nice surfing, contact me and we can work something out for your clips….not you Andy.

Spring Verses | Part 1 – April 6, 2011

Today was certainly nothing special, woke up this morning to thigh high mush. The report said it would be building throughout the morning but I saw nothing of the sort. I went into work for a while and drove back down around 3pm, winds were straight out of the west and the swell had jumped up a foot or two – and sure enough it built all afternoon. I put a smaller clip together because I’m planning on gettin at ‘er real early tomorrow.
