Good luck finding barrels with no swell, longboard friendly conditions on a west coast day, etc. That is what keeps it fun. The anticipation, the hope, and all the times the ocean did not cooperate like the forecast says. Even with a dozen different websites that all try to forecast the waves, it simply does not work.

Enjoy the pictures.
Time to step it up
In doubt, do not paddle out. Surfing is and will always be a dangerous sport. Maybe even more dangerous in the South West tip of Europe where the medical services will take for ever to rescue someone. Always check your material before you enter the water. You do not want to swim without your board in any line up. Especially when the waves getting more serious. Bigger waves mean more rips, always be aware. Is your leash old, change it. Does the leash guard look a bit dried out, get a new one. It might save you a big swim or more than that. Back to the fun part.
The feeling you get from surf- the stoke. Very addictive, yet not so unhealthy. A very famous surfer ones quoted, surfing is the most healthy addiction. And he is right. Walking back to the car we are already making plans for the next session. But it is true that the rest of the things on the agenda feel a lot easier with a good surf in the pocket.
