That last wave...

Not much to say here, other than:

1) I'm not dead. I'm just surfing my ass off...
2) Every year when the winter is over I feel like committing suicide, but then every year I end up loving the summer. Surfing in the warm water of the always sunny south shore of Maui is a bliss. Also considering that 3 out of 5 of my favorite waves are located there.
3) That last wave I caught today was perfection. And I was so lucky to have a surfer paddling out in front of me in the last section, so that I had to bottom turn around him... man, I never hit the lip so hard on a 9.0!

I got so much stuff to post, but you guys got to be patient: there's waves!
I'm really digging this swell... when did I forecast it? June 21st... excuse me if I know how to do that!

And the best is still to come.

Hey Giampaolo,

Nice to hear you're well enough to sail after our last outing! Any adventure story you want to relate about it?

All the best,

Ely

Bob, I learn more every day just by reading Pat Caldwell's forecast.
If there's words you don't understand, just google them.
Then check the weather maps for the north and south pacific. All these links are in the link section of this blog.
Or google something like "how to read a weather map"...
And if you have questions, ask me at the beach...
For example, by checking the future maps of the south pacific, I can already tell that there will be another south swell in 10 days. Around Saturday 14th. It's not magic, it's pretty straight forward, actually...

Ely, I got stuff to post pretty much every day of my life.
Two things are the limiting factors: time and the fact that the new screen of my laptop has not arrived yet. Using a fixed screen, limits my mobility and the posting apportunities...

Cammar, bravo for pointing out the idiocy of over-consumption and waste. The earth is itself might not be so fragile - but our place within it, as humans, is fragile indeed. Keep it up, brah.
