Jeff Gehring of SUPODYSSEY having some fun on some junky two foot waves combined with 15 knot onshore winds. Making the most out of some meager waves in Marin County.
Funny video at the end. Pause and check out the last 10 seconds frame by frame to see Avery watching me getting launched off my board with a huge smile!
Another beautiful day in Marin County. Waves were waist high at best and choppy from 15 knot onshore winds, but on a Stand Up Paddleboard I was able to make the most of a junky session. This was the last and longest wave of the day.
More videos of the sunset session in Marin County. Waves 1-2 feet and no wind. Soft take offs and slow lines that occasionally connected for 50 yard rides. Long, slow, and mellow waves, with the occasional dumping section.
Waves were 1-2 feet with an occasional bigger set wave and little to no wind. Beautiful evening with only one other SUP out, my friend Avery, and one surfer. Ideal conditions for the SUP with a soft take off and long mushy waves. The sunset was also providing some beautiful backlit waves. Enjoy!
Small, infrequent waves in Marin county, probably due to an extremely high tide of 7ft. Big swell of 10ft. at 13 seconds. Moderate winds from the east shifting ranging from 2-15 mph. Sunny day with temps around the 60’s.
Still recovering from my cold and needing more natural neti-pot, I went out to Dillon and sup surfed for about 3 hours. Buoys reading around 9ft. at 11 seconds and variable winds. Sun was also out today, but the water was cold, about 50 degrees. Another great core workout and continuing to rebuild my proprioceptors. Tide was dropping slightly adding a bit of northerly current.
Beautiful sunrise on my way to the ocean for my first sup surf in about 10 days. Had a nasty virus that took me out, preventing me from doing ANYTHING! Light winds and a swell of 8 feet at 11 seconds made it a day for Dillon. Waves were inconsistent and mostly sectioned, but a few clean shoulders came through every now and then. Returning to the SUP made me realize how much of a workout it is to just balance on the board. My proprioceptors were firing on overdrive just trying to stand. I made it through a 2.5 hour session and was exhausted for the last hour. A great workout combined with natures neti pot (ocean flushing through your sinuses) was just what I needed. I could breathe and sleep for the first time in weeks! Great day to return to the water.
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.
