Surfs up!!

Out cruising off Point Loma today, when i noticed a familiar RIB ancored offshore . So looked around for Boatster but no where to be seen
Then he came into view. Had been surfing the break and paddled back to his trusty RIB.
Boatster displaying the proper "seal" boarding manouver
And finaly me getting my photo taken for a change
Great day to be out with clear skies and strong breeze.
But that waters still cold You have to be a nutter to be surfing
cheers Dal

It was good to see you out again this weekend Darrall. I spotted you the minute you came out around the point haha. The water was indeed cold from all the wind we've had lately. It was still nice to be out on such a beautiful Saturday morning.

I got some photos of you as well. Too bad I was shooting into the sun cause you're barely distinguishable aside from your rib.

I'm hoping to be back out at the point tomorrow morning super early if the wind stays down and the waves stick around. I'm trying to milk my time down here in San Diego before I head to Santa Barbara.

funny you mention that there are a couple Boston whaler guys on a scuba forum that say they won't ever get into a RIB just in case a shark bites it. Me personally i think the chances of getting stuck in bad weather are far greater then having my boat bit by a shark. SO give my my RIB any day over a Whaler they are nice boats but i like being able to walk when i make it back to the dock. Has anyone ever heard of a shark biting a boat? I mean other then on the internet. .
I wish i knew why there are not more RIBS around here. It would be nice if there where more it would give us a coupler more service places to choice from.

U.S. and U.K. weather

Codders,
must admit I am spoilt now by our mild winters However my crazy welsh wife misses the old place.In fact she is leaving here next week for a month with her parents ,just outside cardiff.
She must be nuts! (Actually it's just that it's a lot cheaper to fly this time of year)
Now what can I get her (in RIB accesories ) , to bring back , that I cant get over here?? A welsh flag on Bayshots might be a nice change
cheers Dal
PS they are mostly very laid back sharks over here and any problems are usually further North. We have huge schools of leopard sharks in the late summer, which are a site to see,but again "usually"harmless.

Does the flag double up as a sail to get you home if you run out of fuel?

Not me. BUT, a friend of mine who has since retired from the navy mentioned that at one time they were a Zodiac SIB to deliver supplies to a remote community along the Hudson Bay coast, and had a few narwhals sidle up alongside the SIB, bumping up against it. Fortunately the whales made no attempt to skewer the boat with their tusks.

It is california after all...

Shark 1: Dude, check out the RIB up there...

Shark 2: Ya man, knarly! Let's check it out...

Shark 1: (nuzzling tube) Dude, this feels sweeet... kinda like a little seal!

Shark 2: Woh, take a bite man... See what it tastes like...

Shark 1: I dunno Dude... It looks kinda tough

Shark 2: Hey man... there's something looking down at us...

Shark 1: Dude... now that bit does look tasty

Shark 2: Ya man... And I think you need to chomp the tough part to get that juicy bit...

Shark 1: (chomping tube, spilling "tasty bit" into water) Dude, this tastes like caca!

Shark 2: (swallowing Boatster, wetsuit and all) Ya man, but the stuffing is really, really tasty... once you get it peeled!


Now why the heck would a fish want to eat a boat anyway???

Stoo I may never look into the water the same again. But damn I liked it and I don't have sharks up here any how. Now Dal and Boatster might be in trouble.

PT now as much as I would love to those guys up close I don't think i would like to see them that close.
