King Tide (Venice)
Fun short session with Luke this morning approaching a high king tide. I was pleased to make so many waves despite a strong offshore since I've had trouble with that in the past. The breeze was a bit northerly so taking off left was like a getting a garden hose to the face - the spray was blinding - so mostly I went right on Rocket. A couple of the shoulder-high+ waves offered some face, and one in particular had me zooming past Luke paddling back from the inside. Yeah!
Fleeting rainbows appeared in the spray as waves crested. It was just me and my friend and a flock of birds, with not another soul in sight on the water or the beach. Can't beat starting the day like that!
