Good to know I was debating whether to go board shorts only or throw a rash guard on. :?

I might try Montrose for my first session, I hope there's no ice sheets, but I'll report back after.

I'm up and loading the car.. Don't know where I'm going yet, anyone going any one place for sure? Maybe a little later on today hoping that it will warm up? Do we have to be cert'd to ride at montrose today? If so, may take my chances if that's where people are going?

It's under 30* right now and there is ice starting from the beach going 30-40 feet out. Then it's clear. I don't like that setup so I'm not heading out today. Yes, cert needed year round

After a real bad last 1 1/2 years I will be coming back to the sport that I have sooo missed. I have cleared my life of drama and now to clear my mind of the scars ,see you guys on the water... Polo

Ps- I moved from the north out to Frankfort so my new MAIN beach will be Miller or close by but I will still occasionally make the trip to Keegs. Couple of weeks I'll need to start buying gear again, see Ya soon. ;)
