Start of year surf days 1896

January   2021.. Surf sessions end of month 1917
The first day surfing was 3 of January. There are a lot of other surfers around, but I managet to find a decent wave in the far end of the beach.
Lockdown again, However we can do sport and surfing is included. Not everywhere, but in our county it has been possible . We did have some nice sunny days during January. But also a lot of rain.
February  2021.. Surf sessions  end of month  1925
A lot of rain during the month. I broke my Noose Secret LUFI longboard . Had it repaired, but it feels a little different now.
Also the Magic needed to be patched up. There were 10 small holes. many days the waves were to big. Instead I started cycling. 40 km trips.

During month I joined a facebook group for surfers over 70 years old. Within 2 month it had 700 members.
April  2020.. Surf sessions  end of month.  1983
This spring I broke 2 of my long boards. They were repaired again, but it is not the same. I am using the 10 foot LUFI a lot now. It is heavy, so I have made a small trolley for it. Also I have started to surf without socks. Makes it a on the board lot easier to "walk". I have also made a exercise stand in the apartment, so I can practice cross step.
Video show how it works, Under the board there are some strips of soft foam madras material. i try to walk along the board without the edges of board touch floor. Better use a old board in case the foam make pressure dents.
May  2020.. Surf days  end of month. 2013
30 surf sessions this month, and I passed the 2000 mark. However I am in a bit of in the doldrums. Then at the end of the month i had visitors. i rented a 8 feet x 25 1/2 x 3 3/4  with a volume of 98 liters. It was so easy to catch the waves. Easy to surf with a crowd around. I started to think, maybe an 73 year old surfer need a lot volume and board with.
My problem is that when I try to move the feet on my glass boards, that are 23 inch wide, I most often fall.
I will try some more boards with high volume and about 26 inch wide during the summer
