How did your students do Peter? I bet most of them had a total blast.

I'm wondering if Riley is ready for this.


I don't expect he'd swim, but obviously a concern.

Dave, Riley could handle Big Sur with ease! Your kid is a great boater.

Someone correct me if they think I am sandbagging, but I am generally a pretty cautious fellow. Big Sur is actually pretty friendly if you keep to the front wave and stay out of the second set surfers left (the surfers left eddy can also be tough for some too because it surges + poison ivy, also it's really not worth surfing that set right now any way). As far as a swim, my experience has been that the swimmer just needs to be diligent about getting to shore and others should expedite the gear recovery, but it's not a panic situation. Rookies should have an idea what bank they would head for based on where they are surfing. We had one fairly long recovery where a friend was trying to drag his boat to shore (couldn't break the main flow with boat in hand) and we were still not in sight of the damn.

I don't know you all personally other than a causal meeting at Bailey Fest, but given your sons resume on here I would think it's well within his realm if he has done some surfing and can survive a few missed roll attempts through a few wave trains. Just have a spotter and have him start surfers right on the green water.

Well put.

I failed to roll/swam twice out of the surfer's left on the top wave last week. Once through the big wave train I re-entered my boat and paddled for the surfer's right shore. Never even saw the dam.

Worst case (I hope) seems to be the semi-required poison ivy bashing if you miss the top eddy. Bring Tecnu.

Little bit of Big Sur footage near the end of the vid embedded here:

Cheers,

Dave, Kids did great. Big Sur is super friendly. If you did not have float bags it might get you half way to the damn to swim in. but I doubt it.
