Thanks Robin!
      
The wind was blowing a steady 25mph and gusting to 40.  The swells were really behaving to let me tag along.

I love that video of you and Oscar in the double.  That run in to the beach...  Oscar is such a beast.  You guys were just flying across that monster wave.

Here is an excellent graphic video of how to sneak on to  those big runners in a ski.  I think this link will work, I'm not on Facebook.  I have a tough time convincing people to slow down so they can go faster, but that's how boats work.  Too many people try to muscle into downwind swells.  I prefer the easy route.  Let the ocean do the work.  When the time is right, it will let you on.  I think it may be Boyan in a V-6.  Whomever it is, they are flying.  Same wave selection as in my video.  Big swells running from my right to left, I chase the small ones going from my left to right.  When they merge, I sneak left.  Small bumps get bigger, Big bumps get smaller...

Great video LPB! Love it. Takes me back to my week in maui last year. So nice to see long unedited videos sometimes instead of just the highlight reel. I can zone out in front of it and my brain gets back into the wave reading zone!  The music helps with that too.

Good stuff LPB. I was grinning ear to ear when I saw my first flying fish in M2M. Midwesterners are easy to impress.

Well that was just lovely.  I’ve been out of paddling for a while from illness, shoulder surgery and caregiving obligations.  Than was a needed Meditative moment in my life.  I will watch as needed over the next months.  

Stay healthy out there people, double for you Zach!
