Springtime Slipping & Sliding

My favorite neighbor Kevin just built a new retro styled surfboard that's only 5'4". With a weekend of blue skies and sunshine, he and my daughter spent some time in the water, taking turns giving the new board a go. That's Amanda above, in the wave's sweet spot. The sun may be out, but the ocean is still a chilly 58 degrees, so full wetsuits are mandatory.

Most people ride a long board for nose riding. Kevin's surfing skills and wave judgment allow him to nose ride any board he likes. They took turns behind the camera, as well, and Amanda shot the video, below, of Kevin making the most of small, choppy waves on the first weekend of Spring.
