Tom and Surfsis Mat L.A.

A study in inflation levels

"Look, ma! No hands!"

Tom finds a shoulder!


"Yeeeeee haaaaaaaaaw!"

Two mat nerds resting up before making another assault on the waves

Tom and I hadn't met before today, but we did exchange emails in anticipation of his short stay in L.A. We were able to share a session at a local beach break. The conditions left much to be desired. Nevertheless, we were out there getting some. At one point, a guy on an SUP commented to me that he saw us "getting [our] wiggle on"!

I had fun. Tom did too. In fact, he went back for a second session later in the day. (I was home making the kid do summer homework.)

Go get some tomorrow, Tom!! And have a safe, uneventful flight back!

Yeah it was a great morning with SS and her guys!!

The shot "on the shoulder" is funny, because the valve popped open and I´m pressing my left thumb on it to avoid complete deflation.
Quite a "magic towel" ride.

I make occasional trips from SF to SC and would love to surf with another mat surfer- NEVER seen another in the water. Write me at tuskedbeast via yahoo, maybe I can let you know when I'm down there next!
