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.
