More fun than it looked

Today was hot and sunny down at my favorite Texas surf spot. Yeah, the same one I wrote about years ago. Good ol' Redneck Riviera. I am very fond of this spot and its generally crappy waves.
Today's looked like crap, but at 75 degrees, all waves look better. I waited a long time to go in thinking the waves might improve. They didn't. I finally went in anyway.

It's amazing how much more fun the waves were than they looked. Yeah, they were small and choppy and sloppy and once you caught one it fizzled out very quickly and didn't much go anywhere. But the fact that I was able to get any ride at all today impressed and cheered me. It wasn't great but it was so much better than I expected.
