My plan for the winter was to continue building my upper body and core strength, and be ready to hit the waves at every opportunity. On cyber Monday, I bought myself a 3/2 fullsuit. No more rentals!
I could not wait until women's surf night started up again. And then, the day I found out the exact date, I got home and found I had won an Amazon gift card. I decided to do something impulsive with it. I bought a board. I am now the proud owner of a 9 foot!
It's not fancy and not custom, but it's my first board. I spent all my birthday money (thanks mom, dad, auntie and gran!) on what I needed to get in the water- wax, racks, hood, booties, gloves and a beautiful 5/4 wetsuit. As soon as I got everything I needed, the waves went flat. I am ready to hit those cold winter waves! I obsessively check the forecasts, praying for a Nor'easter to hit a day or two before the weekend. It's gotta happen soon!
