New hobby

Sure to break both my legs, my back, my neck, some fingers and my ear...

Here's Jesse catchin some shorebreak yesterday. I think it's worth mentioning (for you poor land-locked souls) that no, that is not a surf board - it's called a "skimmer". Flat bottom (waxed up) and a bit of a kicker on the nose - you basically run down the beach, throw the board down in some wet sand then jump on it like a skateboard - in my case, most of the time with disastrous results.

And here's some other dude getting sodomized down at the Wedge. Note that the water is sheeting over the sand on the beach. That wave might as well be crashing in the sand.

Thanks to Jesse for both the pics!
