For this surf day Jaakko and Tyler stayed back leaving room in the truck for Andy (the president of AGON clothing). This time the surf was a bit of a gamble. The forecast for the incoming swell kept getting pushed further and further back. We were worried, it would be too darkby the time the waves came, but we figure the only way to find out for sure was to make the drive and wait.
We made our way out to Terrace Bay for around noon'ish hoping to meet the waves, but there was only just enough to make a wake boarder complain at the first beach. The second beach was worse. We got back on the highway and tried to make our way down to the third beach. This time I don't think the wake boarders would have complained much; it was glass. Down on our luck we decided to go back to the 1st beach and wait for the swell to roll in like Matthew Mcconaughey in the movie "Surfer Dude". We took our time and suited up slowly. Sure enough the swell started to build and after 2 hours of waiting, there was finally some ridable waves.
The swell ended up just being perfect for our long boards; shoulder height and nice and pushy. Nicole, Andy, Mike and I just kept catching nice ride after nice ride. I worked on my backhand drop ins (heel side), trying to get them solid for bigger short board days. There weren't too many notable things that are worth mentioning because, the whole surf session was notable. It was just a relaxed session, everyone catching waves, everyone having fun, you can't ask for more then that.
