Portuguese and Wright's are back!

Post by Deebo » Wed Mar 27, 2013 7:37 pm

Both have been sick the last couple days and the swell and dub conditions look to be the same for the rest of the week. Was thinking of calling the Cramik Cup event 2 on, but I don't think many people can make it with it being Easter weekend. Hopefully this isn't our last good opportunity to run it before spring dub starts to rape and pillage the lineups. Opinions anyone?

It's crazy though that Portuguese south end is super steep and working at high tide again and even Wright's siders are working just off the high tide with this sick south swell. Sucks soooo bad to be injured now that the waves are finally getting good again. So get out there and get some if you can while the getns good damn it!

Anyway here's some photos of how it's been and Chris getting some good one's (too bad I showed up to shoot after he was already tired)...

Oh also a winch would have been insane for the bigger south left sets. Peeling for days! I'll operate and film if anyone can make it up this weekend...

I think we actually are going to call it on. Today was off the hook epic at Wright's and Portuguese was pretty fun still. I working on editing pics. Probably some of the best wave pics I've ever taken. I'll put them up in a bit...

OVER THE LINE! AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO GIVES A SHIT ABOUT THE RULES! this is Cramik cup Deebo, this is not Nam, there are rules here. Thursday is past Weds. Weds night at 11 pm may have been acceptable, but we are well into Thursday here. I move for a supplemental (breach of rules) event. Event #2 1/2.

Came on here to make you all jealous with how clean Wrights was on Wed. Looks like you guys already know,....damnit. A frames right on shore (pretty close to the rock at time though :shock:), and just pushing through north and south. The south wasn't as strong as I had hoped, definately not enough to pick my ass up and move me, but I had a lot of fun none the less. I might 'crash' the cramik cup event. Tourists go home! jk jk

Haha yeah well they were definitely way tougher than your average sider, but pretty reachable if you know how to really skim (aka can run fast and slide out on the water a decent distance). I've got some pics of Tom and Kevin on some of the smaller one's I'll post when I can, but here's some actual riding pics from today with Sam, Wyatt, and Jesse. Today the swell was a bit smaller and sider not connecting much, but weather was epic and they were all pretty much shredding the most possible out of the waves:

Oh yeah forgot to give credit to Nikki for taking all of the pics. I filmed the whole session too, so expect to see a video sometime after I get my hands on an editing program...I think video will do better justice to the ride quality as the waves weren't very photogenic today.
