A few months ago we wrote a blog that Nude Surfing Was Coming. It was February and water in California was in the high 50’s. But we knew one day the water and air would be warm enough to surf naked.
So it’s only appropriate to celebrate that for the last few months that’s been possible. Grab a board, nothing else, and head out into the surf. For a few weeks in late August and early September the water was in the high 70’s. Now it’s back to the low 70’s, and very soon will be dipping back into the 60’s (and beyond) until next summer. But while it’s here…it’s GREAT!
This year we did nude surfing at San Onofre Trail Six and Black’s Beach. The waves are generally a bit better at San O, but Black’s is a much better beach. Nicer sand, better scenery, livelier beach scene. And thanks to Lloyd and team from the Blacks Beach Bares, you can enjoy some boogie boarding, bbqs, umbrellas and great crowd when you’re not surfing.
We took part in the Blacks Beach Surf Event, did some nude surf lessons including one with a cool guy from LA who was riding waves just minutes after his lesson started, and made some new surf friends who share the passion for getting out in the waves with nothing but a smile, a surfboard and energy to enjoy the good things of life.
In the next few weeks the water will cool and nude surfing will be a memory…at least for 2009. But it’s also a promise for 2010 and the fun of summer. If you’ve never done it. Make a resolution now that 2010 will be your year to try. It’s fun. It’s healthy. It’s natural. It’s Great!
