Climbing and surfing offer up complimentary ways to pass on to the great beyond.

Probably more than you we can imagine.
After all, it is his turf.

Can't remember if I mentioned this earlier in the thread, and too tired to check, but, was out at Tioga in October by myself and left the water because of something swimming under me... enough lateral movement, slow movement, and a big enough silhouette to make me pull my feet up fast and paddle for the next set... could have been nothing, could have been something, but riding alone I got scared quick...

Charles, where's Tioga?

I have surfed spots out on the peninsula. Sharky.
We may have talked about it here before, but after surfing a few days (really fun days) on 17 mile drive I researched the spots I had scored.
On the scale of sharkyness it rated a 10: bring your own iron cage.
A local had been taken years ago and bite marks in his board and body indicated an 18-20 foot White Shark.
Mature Whites were said to regularly cruise the bay, the bay I happened to have a mindblowing evening session at. Perfectly clear water, backlit green perfection.
The occasional big bulb of bull kelp would surface and hit the underside of my board. That was a bit unnerving, but I tried not to think about sharks, which was easy because the waves were so good.
But waiting out there on the reef, with that crystal clear, dark water, I imagined it, just for a second, the sight of one of those fearsome creatures breaching the surface with all those teeth...
Then another wave would come.
Thankfully, my friend didn't tell me about the attack until after the session.

It's a whole different experience up there, the ocean is alive and wild and beautiful. And scary.

735 AM HST TUE JAN 15 2013

OAHU-
735 AM HST TUE JAN 15 2013

HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH FACING SHORES


Surf along north facing shores will be 10 to 15 feet through Wednesday.

Outlook through Monday Jan 21: Northwest swell will maintain advisory level surf along north facing shores through Wednesday. A powerful long-period northwest swell will build Thursday, peak Friday, and gradually diminish late in the weekend. Peak surf heights with this swell will reach warning levels along north and west facing shores.

This could be the one!
