Nice video, nice swell riding, but I was most impressed with the short sleeves in Junuary. I sailed the Hatchery on Thursday and there were still people in drysuits and hoods.

Yeah, it was my first time in short sleeves. I had to. I was having a little trouble holding onto my 2.8 so I removed the sleeves. Things were slightly more urgent than they looked in the video.

I was there on Thursday also and I couldn't believe the drysuits/hoods either. I haven't changed to my 3mm yet, but summer booties (or barefoot for some of you) and no hood/cap are definitely the call when the air temps are in the 60's or higher....

Different strokes. I've seen guys wearing full January neoprene when I was comfortable in board shorts and a rash guard.

Chop-chop..... bounce, bounce, bounce. Lotsa chop. Good thing you had a narrow glass board.

Sweet video, the last swell is to die for. Swell City must have been closed that day. Good to see all your "practice" is paying off, those jibes are really coming along nicely, just remember to try and keep pressure on your turning rail.
