SUNNY – Photo Gallery and 1 barrel shot of Dave L., Sunny’s Dad 🙂
These photos were shot at our point break…
(the point sticks out on our sand dunes halfway to the water from some recent hurricanes, though it doesn’t affect the surf in any way, but still it is a point break at high tide)
on Johnson Avenue on Wednesday, October 19 2011. We had a wind swell that actually kicked up to 13 feet at the 120 buoy, although at only 8 second period out there, and when it hit our beach by 9 Am it was 3 foot at 7 second period.
When we have offshore winds upon even a weak wind swell and some other factors of which I am totally clueless about on this occasion, there was some decent power to be had. And there was definitely some juice to these waves. (though I say this from a beachviewers perspective 🙂 the #4 lumbar was wreaking revenge on me again, ha 😦
Anyhow, Sunny and his old man Dave had a great surf session, and you may want to take humorous note, Dave is eyeballing Sunny rather competively in a couple of the pics I took of Sunny, and since Dave has always been called “Dave the Ripper”, it is possible that Sunny may be catching up to the old man 😉
A backside barrel in number #4 , no doubt! Oops, but my bad…during the wait for the next chance to snap pictures, that is Sunny’s old man in the barrel down below.
You’ll notice in some of the pictures when I get them up online from this day, the old man is eyeballing Sunny’s skills and his chase for the tuck. Dave will probably tell you he’s proud, but I’d be willing to bet a slight edge of competitiveness is hanging on the rim out there, right beside that proud thing of course 🙂 (it’s fun to make these profound observations out loud anyhow)
I’ll throw more pics up here, I have a lot of catching up to do, since we’ve had some really nice swells that played out great on our humble, and yes often smaller waves breaking at Johnson Avenue.
My barrel days are far and few, after cracking a rib just south of 16th street on that world famous chest high shore break down there, I found the epoxy on my 10 foot board was totally unforgiving 🙂
