Jalama SUPper

The guys at the shop gave us a hall pass this weekend…so we took the opportunity to load up the pups and SUP’s in the Sprinter and join some old friends up the coast a short piece…

The notorious Jalama winds backed off from the over 50mph gusts on Friday…Spring has sprung…
Jalama has some of the biggest windsurfable waves on the West Coast of North America when it goes off…

WD getting lost in the troughs of a few mackers…

After the wind blew itself out, the Saturday Fiesta went off big time…good luck finding better Mexican food anywhere on the planet…

We’re not gonna pull an Emeril on ya…but, holy shmoly…all of these long time Baja veterans have learned a few of Mexico’s culinary tricks along the way…

I could go on and on with the fiesta shots…Derrick led the way with his chili…photog Glenn Dubock brought up some PHAT tamales…June went off with her famous tacos…Carol’s guacamole…Mike’s tritip…Deb’s pinquito frijoles…Marilyn’s chipolte dish…tres leche cake for dessert…etc…etc…that was pretty much a typical Jalama supper when our phunhog friends and dogs get together…it was a Labrador convention…we made Maggie the Rat Terrier an honorary Lab for the weekend…;-)

Even the smoke from the campfire behaved itself…

Otay…you prolly didn’t tune in because of the above mentioned supper…it was some Jalama SUP action you are after…

We took a couple of snapshots to capture the weekend…good sized set waves…solidly overhead…and, breaking on the outer reefs at low tide…here’s a few that will have to suffice…’sposed to be more pics from other cameras that were around…

The rip currents were very dangerous this weekend….someone came very close to losing their life down by the “black hole of death” where the rip accelerates offshore..a medivac helicopter landed on the beach…several ambulances…fire trucks…emergency response vehicles…very, very, lucky person…

Here’s 16 year old Chase Racich dropping into a late afternoon left…
