Winds: SW 13-16 16m. Spleene board. Water: I don't think you can pile more june grass in the gulf. I wiped out and didn't splash. I blorped. Waves: couple knee high, two foot seas. Got out too late, wind started to die near 6. I wonder if there is oil in the june grass? Can't see or smell anything.
Winds: WSW 16-20. 16m. Rogue Wave board. Water: murky with full salad. Waves: few waist high, but a lot of chop past breakers. Downwind with Philip. Could have cleared the pier but he needed to leave since I was late in coming. Hung out at landing spot and surfed some more. Curious beachgoers gave me stoke. 9.7 miles. total. 21 mph max.

Winds: SW 16. 16m. Spleene board. Water: murky with medium salad. Waves: a few ankle high but very buttery. Lost my cool. I saw a couple picking up a turtle out of the water. When I saw it flail I couldn't contain myself. I yelled at them until they left the beach. Curiosity just killed a clutch of sea turtles. When you surf a spot for so long you feel responsible for it, a sense of stewardship--especially considering the current crisis. No oil spotted nor smelled today.

Winds: SE 14-16. 16m. Rogue Wave board. Water: clear with a few strands of salad. No smell or sight of oil. Waves: hip to chest high waves. Although I attempted sessions in June, they were barely enough to mention. The wind and the water were just not lining up. A hundred foot run a few feet from shore is hardly worth a log entry.
