Crazy conditions at the Hermosa Beach race.
I'm bouncing around somewhere in that pack.
The race was from pier to pier and back. I drove up from San Diego, CA. with my friend Liza Flowers. The shore break was so intense she didn't even make it out, I struggled through this race, was not happy with my paddle. To date this was the toughest race conditions all season.
Finally, the end. I had to yell my race number two or three times to the folks on the race boat who were being bounced around like a cork in a bath tub.
I caught this wave in to the beach. Managed to catch one of the smaller sets and finally set foot on the sand. Very frustrated afterwards, but being the competitor I am I was ofcourse my own worse critic.
