In search of slide

Yesterday became a dawn mission to find a small slider before the receding swell and a strengthening offshore wind turned our part of the Pacific into a lake. Just before dawn the thermometer in the car registered an outside temperature of 6 degrees Celsius, the coldest I have ever seen it go.
Luckily, I had plenty of search worthy music on the iPod, a good heater in the car and a long board on board.
Eventually I caught up with a few old friends who had found a nice tidal spot in between an island and the mainland where the incoming tide was funnelling in a few peelers. And after the hell swell this week, there was nobody else out!
