Yes! Surprise session, aka Stealth sessions, are definitely some of my favorites. You check the computer/phone and just pop your eyes open...head straight for the closet to grab all your gear and break all the speed limits to get to the spot LOL.
I just had one yesterday @ Montrose Beach. SIIIIIICCCCKKKKK Butter water, smooth SE wind, and tearing it up on the big lofty 14m. Finally completed my first successful double finger flip. Big deadmans that were held out to the end, etc. What a day! Paul joined in towards the end and I think Pier got some of the action too. It's moments like these I tell myself that I will never live far from water again and I mean it.
Cory, you go on so many trips/vacations that you don't need to worry about catching these days. Just wake up in Hatteras and choose whether you want some surf or some sound for the day
