Got a chance once again to get away over the weekend for another surfing trip with a couple of friends. We arrived to our hostel at Seaside, Oregon, late Friday night. Right before bed, my friend has realized that she had forgoten her purse at Safeway, which was an hour and half drive away. It was closed at that time, so she had to wait until the morning when she was able to make a call to find out if her purse was found. We were all in a bad mood, if the purse couldn’t be found, the trip would have been over for us. Luckily it was found and we picked it up the next day early in morning.
After a long morning drive, we arrived to Seaside beach where we were ready to surf! It was a very cold day Saturday morning, the air temperature didn’t rise above 5 degree celcius. Putting on and taking off our wetsuits wasn’t very pleasant, luckily this location has a warm shower that makes it a little more bearable to accomplish.
The following day, Sunday, was such a beautiful day! The temperature rose to 15 degree celsius, a nice sunny day, with an offshore breeze. The waves weren’t very big, but they were perfect to have fun on! I caught dozens of waves. One wave in particular made this trip worth it. I was riding the wave and I squatted down low on my board so the wave was above my head level. I looked to the back and I saw the wave breaking right by my shoulder and when I looked forward I could also see the wave still forming in front of me. At the same time I skimmed my hand through the wave… The feeling was unbelievable! I felt so connected with that wave!
The drive back was long and arduous, I felt very tired the next day at work too. But the trip was very fun!
