    New Toy....

    I know its not a new gun but I've been wanting to get a longboard for the gulf coast surf. I sold one of my short boards the other day and found a good deal today. So I bought it. Its a 9'0" Watercooled 2+1 longboard. (Watercooled is the brand name).

    We have actually had a lot of surf this summer. Anytime a storm or a cold front comes through it'll kick up surfable surf. This past Sunday it was a consistant chest to head high surf. That why I've been wanting a longboard so I can milk any surf out there. Tuesday we were out goofing off in shin to knee high stuff.

    Ya we drive over to Coaco beach and surf a lot. We were going to go over this weekend but I have some other stuff going on.

    You may have more surf than you want depending on where those nest 3 hurricanes end up going.

    I know it sounds bad but a few more days of surf would be nice!

    lol no but it's funny you mention sharks! A couple weeks ago we did see a small one. 2 footer or so but couldn't tell what type. This last storm stirred up the jelly fish and I think all but one of us got hit atleast once between Sunday and monday.

    No not yet. I just picked it up last night and it's flat right now. I was hoping some of the feeder bands from hanna would kick up some surf this weekend but does not look like it will. A buddy and I may go to the east coast this weekend if time permits.

    I may still take it out and paddle around a bit. See how it floats and paddles.
