Told You it'd be Clean...


...Just didn't tell you it was going to be a mush fest.  I always catch myself saying 'nonetheless' when describing the surf at Folly because at least one thing is constantly out of wack.  Whether it be the wind, power, tide, STUPID BUGS, backwash, jellies, foam boarders...., I could go on and on.  I really need to surf a proper wave.

Leslie has Kept Me Busy



I took the time today to cruise around to different spots along the coast to find a semi off-shore spot for this blazing SW wind and overall it was a complete fail like every other time I've tried to search for that "secret spot."  It is non-existent by car.

Yesterday we saw some light offshore winds which opened up some barrels.  Enjoy and go look on Magicseaweed and Surfline's Leslie Part 2 feature.  You'll see The Washout all over the place.

Leslie Barrels Galore


I just got off work and I don't feel like putting together sequences maybe tomorrow.

Winds went offshore today right around 930 and it got super fun.  Don't believe me?  Just look at the shots.  

Tomorrow looks like round 2 barrel fest.


If you haven't understood the concept of good and bad lighting, consider this.  Notice how the colors pop and the photo just has a crisper feel when I have my lens pointed away from the sun?  So if you see me on the beach and you think you got enough game then set yourself up away from the sun.

All the yellow spots  you probably didn't notice are just butterfly's...

Well I didn't have work today so my hopes were up I could at least see one glassy part of the day.  Again I defer to my most popular phrase here on the blog, "Folly never ceases to disappoint me."  Wind blew from dawn till dusk.  

Bright side is that my new lens came in today.  But when it's windy like this it whips up all kinds of shit in the air including the most annoying haze/mist.  It gets on the lens, makes everything brighter, and pisses me off.  

Winds are forecasted to be 3 mph out of the west Thursday morning. Sure. 

That is all for now...
























Did you notice something new I did?  Go back and look at the 2 "one color" shots.  Getting artistic in this b.


If you're wondering, "Why are all the same people always on the blog wahh wahh!!???"  It's probably because you suck at surfing.  Listen, don't take it the wrong way, I wouldn't take a picture of myself either.  Same principal that the magazines have.  People want to see action.  They don't want to see you riding down the wave in your safety stance.
