What's up y'all! The waves looked fun at Maderas, but you know we're gettin some a little ways north as well. Our old friend Tom "Sillouhette" Sheets is in town. The reports would have you believe today was small and onshore. This is what we arrived to the beach to find this morning. Not too shabby for "small and onshore".
Here is Tom "Sillouhette" on one of the day's opening waves. Tom wants to let Summer, Riley, and Braden know that he'll be living in Nicaragua from now on....Just kidding Summer we'll have him back to the family in a couple of days.
Now on to the action. Lucha was showing us some serious photo composition skills from his various tree/mountain perches down at Maderas. I kept it simple and caught some of the action from beach level.
There weren't many barrels to be had here today. With the short period swell and light onshore winds making gouging turns the order of the day, little barrel set ups like this one were few and far between.
Another good turn, this time from Keith, who is staying with NSR in one of our rental properties that is located just steps from this wave. July dates are filling up fast, so drop us a line if you are thinking of coming down.
We'll leave you with this shot of another destructive turn. This spot is generally fast and hollow with precious few opportunities for turns like these. But today was downright playful. While we'll always opt for heavy and hollow if given the choice, these conditions were a fun break from the daily grind.
