Description:

This was my best surf session yet this year. The waves were much larger than last week (6-9 foot swells, 13s period). Playa Norte was pretty sloppy so we went to La Isla which was great (low crowds on a Monday). Kon Tiki was huge (not quite ready for that yet) and La Isla's point break was consistent all afternoon. I thought that I saw Anali Gomez (young Peruvian surfer) but couldn't confirm it. Anyhow, I got in a solid 2 hours in the water (bodyboard) and caught a good 5+ waves. My bottom turn was a bit rusty so things started out a bit ugly. I was shooting out front and unable to really get in the tube, then I had to wipe it to avoid the rock wall. By the end of the day my bottom turn had progressed a bit but it still needs work. Best workout of the year yet.
