Here Goes!!

It's that time of year again. It happens about twice a year every year. For people who surf every season, all season, Its kind of funny and a pain in the ass. Mid spring all the people who snow board and only snow board in the winter, show back up on the beaches looking all hard core and shooting  dirty looks at ya, pissed you made the wave they were trying to cut you off on. Following you around when they see you heading for a new peak. "lots of fun". But at least these guys can surf. They know how to paddle ,duck dive and get the hell out of the way when things get big.
Then there is the crew that shows up at the end of summer. They keep on hearing about how good it is getting from there friends. They surf maybe a month a year, and all they have down is the stank eye. Hanging out way on the inside, not looking at what any one else doing. Getting pissed off cause they can't catch a wave. I never really hear any yelling between surfers until these guy's show up. I love surfing the waves this time of year but I hate dealing with these guys, and I hate seeing my friends having to deal with these guys. 
It's kind of like oil and vinegar.
You have the smooth aged graceful surfers mixed with the sour made yesterday hacks.
Well winter is upon us and the lineup will empty soon enough.

What Is Up With Our Sharks?

My friend sent this picture to me from a wednesday dive trip at haystack. It was washed up on the beach when they came in from there dive. Trying to help it live they helped it back into the water. They did not think it would make it. On the same day another shark was found on a different beach that washed up. 
Here is what the AP network said.

SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) -- A shark that washed up on an Oregon beach was covered with unknown parasites.

Seaside Aquarium officials say the 4-foot salmon shark that washed up in the Cannon Beach area Wednesday was covered with a dense layer of parasites in an unusual way.

Aquarium manager Keith Chandler said staff members could not identify the type of parasite and have begun seeking opinions from other marine experts around the Northwest.

It was the fourth salmon shark found by the Seaside Aquarium in the last six weeks. They have been showing up in the fall and late summer months in recent years, with increasing frequency.
