(filed by our special correspondent Chimply Lord Scotworth:) Got the call early to go to Ditch,supposedly it was epic so jamming out there some guy in a box truck in front of me turns his left blinker on so I start to pass him on the right..right? wrong ! he makes a right! I cant explain how close (doing 60) I came to getting smashed into the guard rail. Got to Ditch with blood pressure at 200x200 and after half an hour finally calmed down. Waves were pretty good, but you had to pay some dues to get out. Too much offshore, but Jimi Jam, Fisherman and Jonathan got out and shredded (Jonathan underpowered on a 6.2! The Wolf and I decided to go back west to the Bowl. Got to the Bowl and it was honkin 5.3! After many jumps I was way outside and landed one flat...SNAP!! The only thing holding the two halves together was a footstrap...took me a long time to get back body dragging with two halves acting like anchors! Hope I never go through that again. had my GoPro on but when I got back to the beach it said "card full", didn't get any video. The Wolf broke his mast in the shorebreak before he even got out! Thanks to Jonathan for replacing his mast right away and replacing my board! Oh almost forgot..C.D. showed up and sailed!!!
