Last weekend I summoned up the energy to haul my boat up to Crescent City for a surf zone class led by Mike Zeppegno and John Day. Wearing a collection of owned and borrowed equipment to keep the bay at bay, I plunged into the waves and tried to keep my kayak from turning upside down. I was periodically successful. Fortunately, none of these photos show me ignominiously thrashing in the drink. I got really cold in spite of all the rubber and GORE-TEXÂ® swaddling me.
I actually had a similar class in bigger surf about 5 years ago. Mike and I reminisced as he was in the class as well. Thought I did better then. Still, I hadn’t been in much surf since. But it was fun this time, too! Honest! And I will do it again.
