Hi, marginal conditions here in the center of Italy. Time to go for a race training (RRD K Rapida Special, Ozone Edge 17). A big ciao to all sea brothers.

Hi from Cumbuco, Brazil !

Yes, way more expensive than years ago, and will even get more expensive!

But, the wind is soooo good, that it is priceless!!!

Being here since Sept 20. wind EVERY day between 15-25 knots!

Yesterday I had an awesome session on the Cauipe lagoon with 16-21 knots...heaven that is!
666+ tricks are possible on this spot ;-)

Really light day in San Diego with only knee high waves. But, with the Santa Ana conditions and warm water, I couldn't resist. Still had a fun time with the Fat Lady/Sweet Potato combo. Love this set up for the margy days. :D

Looking over my logs this summer... July 3 sessions, August 3 sessions, September 4 sessions, October, 3 sessions so far.

October 19th...session from 4pm to 7:20pm...sunset was at out of water ....stars were starting to twinkle

5 minutes after i stopped the largest orange full moon (official full was the18th) came out of the... ...cloudless horizon...straight offshore..East of beach
"Breathtaking sight"

Wind was SE (side-on) 14-17 knots with 3 to 4 ft waves

Rode surfboard strapped...packed in as much waverides...jumps...kiteloops..
....downloop transitions...toeside to heelside wave top slashing as possible
Was at Cocoa Beach 5th street beach... really really fun session...3 other guys were out with me

My log looks pretty normal .....when wind is less than 13kn...which is often i use a 19 XR3 Core... where i live our beach gets more wind being away from mainland... not strong but often

July 15 sessions, August 24 sessions, September 23 sessions.....
.... October 13 sessions out of 19 days

I am very very thankful for every session on the water playing with the wind :surf:

Got up at 5:00am to go to Dauphin Island Al for the first time today. 15+knots at 8:00, dropping off by 11:00.
Riding 13M Bandit & Sector 60 V2 -- took about an hour to relearn in big chop & higher wind, that I have to get my weight shifted back in a hurry as I gybe :)
A fun day and a beautiful spot
