Friday 7 9 21 morning call

Wonderful day of waves on the south shore with overcast skies and very light wind most of the day. The photo doesn't show how good the waves were, but that's all I got. I told Reef to show me something that would inspire me to paddle out with him. He did what he could. but that wasn't enough, so I went foiling again.
