January Surf Report

Pretty inconsistent this month, but we've had a few good days. Here's a couple shots of Kako and Gyoko. I got out at Gyoko early on the 16th, and surfed it by myself for about an hour, then the crowds descended on the place. By the time I left there was 10 people out...pretty crowded, but everyone wanted to get on it while it was good. Back to flat again....hopefully it'll pick up again this week...

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!
Went out for my hatsu surf today, my "first" surf of the year. The conditions weren't great, lumpy, a bit windy, and a balmy -2. Still, it felt good, and was actually warmer than it looks (see pic below). With five guys in the water it was about as crowded as winter surfing gets here. I hadn't been out since Christmas eve, so was really itching for a surf. 
I'm working on two board frames at the moment, and will post some pics as they start to come together. Also, the tides will start shifting around this month, so hopefully I can get some winter surf pics up.   
Have a happy and safe New Year.
