This was just one of those days.
The swell was forecasted to be up and a photographer wanted to shoot some photos.
When we made it to the beach we instantly could tell it was not right. The full moon made the sand bars too deep and what should have been perfect walls had been replaced by a jumbled mess.
So I paddled out and began to just try to make something happen. What I ended up with was a slew of cutbacks and check turns just trying to find the one perfect section.
On one wave I had one section to belt and I did. The picture ended up in Eastern Surfing Magazine. The rest went straight to the drawer. These are the photos from the drawer.
We all love those perfect days but what makes us improve is to be able to hammer away at the less than stellar days. You may end up with a lot of photos for some old forgotten drawer but one time you might hit the target.
Perseverance is a good trait to have.
