Today was one of the prettiest days we’ve had all winter. The skies had cleared from days of rain and the temperature had warmed up into the 60s. I had watched the swell charts all week and a hopeful bump on Friday remained a constant promise. So I was determined to kick off early and go surf.
Around 2:30, I skeedattled out of the office and grabbed my board and wetsuit. I decided to take Olive because I had been practicing my shortboard pop-up and was getting better.
