Jeff Gehring of supodyssey.com stand up paddle surfing in Sonoma County with an excessive amount of red tide in the water. Soft but fun head high waves at a high tide of 5 ft. Swell was wsw 4 ft. at about 12 seconds. Warm fall weather with light wind. I also broke the mount for my go pro camera!!! Surfed for about 3 hours and felt every minute after. Breathing was difficult because of the red tide, so bad I almost threw up after the session.
