Tortola Diary part 1

After sorely missing it last year Tortola in the lovely British Virgin Islands was a sight for sore eyes. And....a cane Garden Bay session can be crossed of the bucket list now, even though I got throttled there, broke a leash, dinged the board, and had to swim back to the pier.

But let's focus on the positive, it was pumping the 1st day, fun the next 2, and small for the duration of the trip. Surf on all but one of the days, but good times all the time.

When there wasn't any surf the snorkeling was terrif!

Closing Out 2014 with a Welcome Surprise Swell last Saturday

Pretty dang sweet for a day which was supposed to be flat - and 50° on December 27?
A great way to ease out of 2014 and into the new year.
The old Hanesn 50-50 - what can I say?
48 years old and still one lively monkey!
And to think I wanted to sell this.
