October is about making the most of every minute, because beautiful fall weather lasts about 3 minutes and then you freeze your arse off for the next 5 months.
I tried not to make this post about fall surfing...kind of. But it's worth saying that during October, every time we're out on the water it feels a few degrees closer to winter.
First you dig out the 3/2 long suits, which take some getting used to after wearing swim shorts all summer....then come the sensible hats for avoiding that post-surf/wet hair chill...
....and then the very next weekend, you dig out the 5/4 mm hooded seal suit....
...and now you know you're staring down the barrel of those days when you'll be wiping icicles from your nose. Are you depressed yet?
Well, the good news is we're making the most of October and getting in lots of bike rides & surf sessions. And a big thank you to Nona & Papa for meeting us down at our favorite break last weekend and hitting our favorite post-surf snack spot.
