Summer Heat
















We showed up right after the Coast Guard helicopter crashed.  Talked to a guy who saw it and he said it was flying fast and low, banked hard when it saw the wires, then the tail flew off into James Island and the rest crashed into the river.  Not good...  Got in the water an hour or so later and you could smell jet fuel.

The waves were pretty good for the last two days.  Hot wind and super cold water (gives you gnarkill headaches).  Met a ton of chill people and a few drunk ones (one local who ragged on me for drinking "RainDog" and an old guy who claimed to be one of the Dogtown Z-Boys)... 

Amazing weather and a great vibe.  Watch out for the guy who comes around at night and asks for you to pay for a fire permit.  He doesn't work there and he is just scamming you, luckily we were with a local dude who told us.  The guy then tried to sell him a board he got in PA, "Its got 3 fins on the bottom and one of those leash things too".  50 bucks.  Sounds scandalous...
