Where Grace goes, no swell follows.

Almost every time I've gone down to visit Little Miss N in Del Mar, there has been no swell. Even if forecasts say there's going to be a little bump in size, my presence pretty much assures knee-to-waist.

Even so, I had fun on Sunday in San Diego County. I brought down my darling Cooperfish to treat him to some shapely waves. It amazes me how easy it is to surf nice waves when you call a crappy close-out beach break home. I took off on some decent set waves and had some time to walk back and forth. I still chicken out before I get to the nose, and I'm not sure how to get beyond that reaction.

I hear you Grace! It's so hard for us to surf our break after returning from SD too. But I have to say, these last few days have been fun...we're off to SD next week I hope we don't get too spoiled!

Have fun in San Diego! My friends down there grumbled once as we were headed out to the water, "Wow it's crowded today." I looked around and thought, "What?! THIS is crowded?! I don't think you know crowded until you surf and drive in L.A." It's all perspective, ain't it?
