Bendy pockets

Twentyfive knot winds, big swells reduced by half maybe two/thirds..... here in the lee we watched as two recent soft top grads had a little fun, dodging rocks and safety squatting through the kelp heads. Once in a while a chest high runner would line up and bend through..

"Paddle up the point... paddle up the point...." but they didn't and the first section kept being ignored as they took off on the deeper side of the boil that split the wave and the  rides were half the length of what they could've been, but they had a blast, hooting and calling each other into waves.

Managed to find six fish. A whale, maybe two cruised in the water just passed the kelp. Dodged a phantom north swell that threatened to get the lone dory up close to the rock, nice solid headhigh swell that cruised through unannounced. Could have ridden it if I was willing to risk a yard sale, but no not so much..... He spooked after that and headed back in.

An eagle combed the outpost for birds, much to their dismay. Murres look smaller in numbers this year and it could be the result of the eagles resurgence, no murres have hatched an egg for a couple of years now off Kong or any other coastal rock within 100 miles.

The eagles make them scatter and other scavengers work the nests free of eggs while the murre avoid trouble. It's a harsh world.
