Oh man, the last few days have been sooooo good. The whole crew feels as if we have been run over by the windsurfing truck. There was definitely some “old man noises” involved in climbing out of bed this morning.
We saw the Norte arrive on the 4th, the 5th was 5.0 and 80L for me but a little bit holey and then yesterday the 6th we awoke to gusts shaking the walls of our concrete block house. By 9:30 we were hitting the water (shoulda been out there at 8AM).
It was filled in 4.5 and 80L boards with a perfect medium tide and some of the most consistent breaking waves at the generals. Perfect port jumps and clean backside wave rides were the call for our first 4 hours session. Then thirsty and exhausted we sailed back down to the house fired up the barbie for a hamburger and exhausted and bleeding we could not believe how windy it still was so we went out for another 1.5 hr session.
Our Man Bill Blanke saw the forecast that we had been watching for over a week and hopped a quick flight over from Mexico City to score the Norte. Apparently it is only $200 Round Trip from Mexico City to La Paz, on Volaris….we need to get them flying from San Diego or something, they fly from TJ to La Paz for about the same price but that is a bit inconvenient.
This morning it is already super windy, tide is a little too high for good waves at the Generals. We would be out there right now if we had a hot tub to soak away the morning pain. But alas we will just have to marinate on this coffee and find some energy somewhere.
Check out the shots from yesterday. And come on down its gonna be a great season.
