Managed to pull off a dawny.

After a couple of days of being totally down and out, I managed to pull myself out of bed and paddle out before work this morning. I decided to give El Porto a try since I knew that Venice would be total and utter crap. El Porto, frankly, wasn’t much better. Mostly dumpy close-outs on the very low tide. Still, there were a few racey corners here and there, and it did feel good to be out in the water paddling. Water temp is very nice and after several days of being in a total black hole, more than anything, I just needed to get wet. It is a good way to start the day and actually seems to give me more energy at work afterwards.  Probably will be better later this morning with the higher tide.

    Sometimes it’s damn near impossible to get motivated to paddle out in crap surf. I just lay in bed this morning, staring at the ceiling and asking that eternal question, “Is it really worth trying to out-position 10 other guys at Topanga for a 2′ dribbler?”

    I slept in.

  2. Well, you certainly didn’t miss anything. I don’t know what’s worse – the paddle battle at the point breaks or the crappy close outs at the beach breaks? It has been so long since I’ve had a really good session – unlike you who just came from near empty CR! No fair.
