 Solid double ups over the inside bar. Ding and myself for the afternoon, joined later by one other.

The unusual cold

The ice travels down the river, pulled by tide and flow. A thin chatter takes place between the edges of liquid and solids. The whispered conversation makes me think of ages past. Of centuries when ice controlled  all around here.

This meal ended up high on the dune, must have been a 9' tide......

The icy Nestucca

It's a cold day here on the river Y, on the backside of those trees a few freezer waves are peeling off some choice walls.

This swell has teeth

                                                                                                      (pic by G.Englesby)

Many of these moments as long period swell detonated,
clear water and thumpy sandbars.
Best sessions away from the usual.

Air drops with just the rail holding a line til the feet caught up,
loads of shadow time. Just two out. Felt it later after many beat downs.
Nicks and bruises.

All good.
