Its that time of the year. Cold and crispy in the morning, school buses, more traffic and almost to the point where i have to warm my car up in the morning. The waves are also bigger. Strong NW systems are bashing the NW coastline which can be good or bad depending on how you look at it. I prefer smaller and cleaner waves from waist to head high. You know the feel, sun shining off the nicely shaped peelers. A slight offshore breeze keeping you cool. Spending a considerable amount of time on the nose, watching the water skim beneath your feet while you do it. Those were the days. Well, I shouldn't be so pessimistic. Fall has its bonuses, too. Bigger waves means less people in the line up and more waves. Shitty weather in general will do that. And there will still be those small days you just have to wait around and get to the right spot. For the most part I'll be busting out the 9'0 high performance longboard so stay the fuck out of my way (I'm only kidding. I'm always down for a party wave as long as you know where the hell you're going).
