So while Slim was taking his kids to the pig auction at the Califormia Mid-State Fair — he had to kill time before seeing his idol, Justin Bieber — the rest of us were getting The Stoke on a couple of fun days here in Morro Bay.
Earlier in the week, it was pretty small out there, but we got a little summer swell starting Friday. The top photo is of Clam, catching a nice little left — perfect for a goofy footer. Clam is like me — he spent a good deal of time living in Indiana, which is why I jokingly say were the only two members of the Indiana Surf Club. He grew up closer to Lake Michigan, but he never surfed the Great Lake.
Finally, here’s a shot of *ME*! It was so small earlier in the week, I was determined that not only would I wear a hat in the lineup, but I also wouldn’t even get it wet. Well, that’s sort of a lofty goal, as it turns out. I did wind up getting it wet, but I didn’t lose it. There were some decent small waves, but instead of an action shot — you know, since there are SO many of me — I figured I’d post this nice shot of Morro Rock. And, of course, I’m giving props to a fine West Coast team here.
Maybe we can drag Slim out next week. But I hear he might be taking his family to church camp.
