Coyote Point Howls

From what I've gathered, the peninsula has had a rough (or shall I say still?) couple of weeks out here, so it was about time those loyal Coyote folks got a piece of the action. This place is freaking awesome when it's windy. The air was slightly chilled, but the water was balmy. I'm without a doubt more buoyant at this spot than any other so far. The breeze was side-on with a very small wind shadow, nice rolling swell with which to play with and tons of huge grins on the beach. I was on a 5.0 and my new 86L Fanatic Freewave. It was perfect at first, then slightly overpowered as the afternoon went on. There were no crowds and lots of beautiful sunshine. On my drive home, I realized the dense fog had blanketed the city, so I felt grateful that I decided to hang out in the south.

Mo of Team Coyote only needs one hand to rip in her home waters.

The fog sometimes kills the sunset and other times it makes it amazing. I snapped these two pics just a few blocks away from my apartment.

I did no photoshop editing to these other than resizing. Pretty neat, huh?

Tomorrow I'm heading to the Columbia River Gorge for the first time. I may not be posting much, but I cleared out my camera memory, so hopefully I will have a lot to share when I return. Hope everyone gets to rip this weekend!

Hey, don't make fun...I lost a hand playing Texas Hold'em on my iPhone. ;)

Glad you caught a good day at the Point. Looking forward to your pics from the gorge.
