June is Dawn patrol season

Posted in Uncategorized on June 26, 2012 by jettyholic

Happy Summer Solstice, the jettyholic crew has been on the full dawn patrol program, hoping from one board to the next to optimize our early morning water time! I love being able to get 2 hours of surf in before 7am! Its been smaller surf for the crew but weve still had fun on the minis, longboards and dare i say it, even the SUPs. 20 plus years jetty man James Bain is on it by 5:15am most days on his new RAW Hobie sup, full respect from the prone division to him. Most are still fast asleep as James ends a solid session at the hardest place to stand up surf on the island and he still rips on his mini bob as well. If you dont surf here, dont  SUP here, end of!

Excellent rebound action this weekend as the jettyholic scored lots of really long micro rides on the ol Skip. Computer geek invasion was in full effect with Hawaiian Chris and Brian joining the dawn patrol sessions with their sons. The bar isnt as good as last year but is holding up well and its breaking pretty nicely as we thankfully exit our peak high tide period. Hopefully we’ll see a bit more size soon but if not no worries we’ll still be having fun. Hopefully Ill have more photos up soon with work returning to a more reasonable load.

And since its hot and surfing for hours w/o hydration leads to dehydration check out this great lesson in how to get re-hydrated from the MWOD blog. heres what should be a working direct link? hello wordpress? to a good electrolyte mix.  nothing artificial in it and you can grab it at LOVEYS on Military Cutoff.

and a hydration self test and upper body fix after a day of paddling. now get on it


Lots of surf

Weve had a fair share of rideable fun surf so far. @ tropicals already produced solid swell for days and weve had the classic early mornin glass in that knee to waist with good rebound off the wall. Even some surprise days like sat where it was far better than expected. I gotta remember RAIN X tho, totolly ruined a lot of footage sunday with water spots and crappy camera angle. Managed a few of super Ollie and his dad james who was dialing in his new RAW Hobie.
