Nose job

The Goya is getting a nose job. Dr. Bordeau (a.k.a Little Bird, a.k.a the board surgeon) removed a lot of stuff and put some serious epoxy patches, but he thinks the board will make it. After an hour of work, we were done for the day, so we went for tacos. I certainly hope the board survives, I need her in full force for my lest season in Chicago.

What lies beneath... the duck tape layer

Couldn't wait any longer

And so the season started. Yes there was ice on the beach, yes is may have been snowing, but I couldn't take it any longer. The rest of the crew is in Corpus Christi, I'll post pictures...
See you out there!

Will it happen?

For the past 3 years, the season in Chicago has started in mid March. By then usually the ice is gone on Lake Michigan, and the smaller inland lakes are ready as well. This year, I'm not so sure. Some desperate souls have decided to migrate to Texas in search of steady winds and warm weather. I'll post pictures of that trip soon.
