Look! We took my parents surfing and it wasn’t a total surf session. We went to Pavillion and Crane Beach where it was forecast to be more mild and mostly had them playing in the soup zone.

As usual, I only managed to get one or two rides _grrrrr_. And Tyson got two 30 second rides that he even caught on video. The one good ride I got was on a tiny wave. I’m not sure what combination of my boat’s performance and me has been giving me trouble with the bigger waves.

As I expected, the wind was a big issue. By the time we were most of the way down Crane beach, my folks weren’t feeling like fighting the wind and waves to get back up, so instead we took the back way. The tides were decided suboptimal (there was some scooching along in the mud). And we didn’t have our charts with us since we had planned on surfing. But the GPS map had enough detail to get us back.
