HMB @ Jetty, 4 January 2009

Aside from the splendid sunset, the Jetty was not so awesome this time. There was a bit of a crowd despite the 3-4' waves being disorganized and poorly shaped, and I got only a couple micro-rides on closeouts. But S was watching from the breakwall and saw me duck dive a wave in unison with a nearby surfer. He was pushed halfway back to shore, while I resurfaced at my original location. Yes!! Not only are my duck dives feeling right more often, they are right! But the real test is yet to come against some bigger and more powerful short-period waves. I hope the practice pays off.
