Zion was beautiful. Side shore, steady, empty, sunny, warm. Just awesome. The main park was closed from storm damage, but you can still get in if you go up north a bit to 17th (the park ranger sent me up that way). Rode from 9am until about 2pm, and it was building and swinging side-onshore when I left. Good times! Hope we can get a few more of these days before it gets cold!

Ahhh...what can I say about Da Have'?? Delivered as expected. Had to wait until late afternoon as predicted this morn, but once the switch was thrown, it was nothing but clean waves, solid wind & non-stop fun until just before dark!! Sittin' at Captain Lou's with some fish tacos & brew of the day taking in the experience. Hopin' for a few more of these while the temps are warm.....

We had a GREAT time @ Montrose. Yeah the waves were very sloppy at first, but the wind was strong. Current was really strong too! I even got a warning on my weather alert from my phone. Windsurfers RIPPED IT UP TODAY!! Very impressed! The usual crew of around 8 or 10 were there and when Slavi showed up so did the clean waves. He was saying how he just couldn't get off them they were so good right around the hook. He came in just to ask the girlfriend if he could have another hour 8) :lol: .

I think everyone today scored and scored big on a sunny, warm water day. Can't wait for the next one and remember to keep showing off when I've got the helmet cam on I'm getting great footage!

Rode Zion, yes Zion! I don't know why all of you are saying its closed because its not just the north end is closed but not the hotel..... But other then that the wind came in at 10 and we rode at zion till 2ish on 9's-12's then my dad packed up and it was just me henry and Andrew. We decided to do a downwinder to waukegan. The classic downwinder to waukegan was epic. I rode into the river mouth and went like 500 yards into it and it was just butter flat water and warm too lol Saw V on the way down he did a upwinder to ride downwind of the bird shit island where the waves were peeling nicely..... Good to see you out finally!!! When I got down to waukegan saw a bunch of friendly faces ripping it up. All in all a very good day.
