The misadventures of a weekend kook

Black friday surfing

To shop on black friday and join the brawl-mart shoppers, or go surf? Go surf...

After missing the nor'easter and thanksgiving day swells. I got the chance to try out the leftovers. Not only was I greeted with nice chest to waist high waves. But, it was also a warmish day for our early winter (46 degrees) with light to non existant offshore winds.

I think a lot of people decided to try the morning, thinking they would catch leftovers from the day before, but instead it was pretty crowded with smaller waves due to a slightly stronger wind. I think we got to the beach at the perfect time, right about 1:30 in the afternoon when the high tide was slowly rolling in. My friends and I, were the only ones on the beach and we got to hog up all the glassy waves. It was a fun time. Sure it wasn't barreling massive 12 footers, but I can't handle beasts like that. I would have liked it just a foot bigger, but this was pretty sweet in my eyes.

Come around next year, I hope to be doing the same thing. No shopping for me on black friday, just some sweet surfing.
