Took a still camera out

I have been surfing a little but not posting pictures. I have been trying to get my arms back after spending the better part of the last 7 months out of the water recovering from my ACL reconstruction. I figure a camera will only distract me from surfing so I have intentionally not taken any out. For some reason I thought it would be okay this past Thursday.

Here is my usual surf comrade Eli paddling out. As you can see it was not a hard paddle.

There were some waves but mostly it was just a pretty and cold morning with a nice moon set.

There were long periods of waiting and getting cold. You can't tell from this picture but the wind was really strong and Eli was freezing without a hood.

Here is about the only shot I got of a wave -:\

I shot some movies and none of them came out. I shot a ride or two and none of the pictures came out. I missed a lot of waves while trying to take pictures of waves. I am not taking my still camera back out till I have a better system worked out or I get my arms back and have more than a couple of hours in the water.
