Lawless scores




My good friend D$ made the trek to Halifax to see if he could score some surf and do a little cycling around the city. We accomplished both of these goals with excess. As usual we had good times, good food and good vibes. D. and I have surfed a few really good places together and it's always fun to hoot each other on waves and generally raise hell.

Saturday the swell was up but there was a heavy west wind. After searching for an hour we found a clean right point wave that was working well with head to chest high waves. We surfed it for about three and half hours. D$ got out first as he's not used to water below 78 degrees. He walked around the headland and took some photos of a good looking outer break. The outside peak is probably a quarter mile out or more. Looks like it may be worth the paddle out the next time the waves are working there.

Fall is definitely here, the leaves are amazing and hopefully winter swells wills tart pumping soon. I got my new 6'6" this weekend finally. I rode it Saturday with little luck. It may take a few sessions to dial it in. All in good time.

Was good meeting D$ and nice surfing with him. Some of the old school were talking about that outside break while we were out and said that a jetski is best but man that left looks sweet!!!

man i'm sure a jet ski would work but that would lame too. next swell I'm making the paddle out on the mini-gun. hi-T you want in on that one?

Daniel. Man I sort of floundered on the Biofoam. Rather than using fins I know work well I tried some of the Futures with the hatchet centre fin. i just couldn't get it dialed. next session I'll be using the old guard and hopefully I'll hve a bit more control and confidence.

Great time for sure and some of the best waves I've surfed in a long time. The setups there are amazing.

That outer break is totally paddle-able. I watched it for about 20 minutes and the take-off spot didn't shift around much. There was alot of water moving, so you'd need a longer board than normal, but for an extra 5-10 minute walk you'd have it all to yourself.

Thanks again Slick Rick for the good times. I'll be back up for sure once the water warms up again :D

I didn't even get a pic of you with your new board! I got like 2 pictures of downtown, 1 of you on your bike and about 50 of the waves. Priorities...

Its this time of year that I really wish I was on the Atlantic. Even though the PNW was going off last weekend, we are on storm lock down for the foreseeable future... Halifax looks like a killer area. Reminds me a bit of home but I bet you get way more swell than Wales...

All those reefs, points and curves to the coast mean lots of exploring. Fun stuff.
