YHC issued a Surf Advisory on twitter last night calling for High Surf and advising the Pax “If in doubt, don’t go out.” Funny how that works. As the seconds ticked down to kickoff, the cars kept rolling in. Before I knew it, there was a crowded lineup of 23 Pax, bobbing in the surf and ready to drop-in to whatever Dawn Patrol had to dish out. It was a beautiful thing.
Flag planted and disclaimer given for a Scubba Steve recruited FNG. Leave it to the guy from Wilmington to bring an FNG to surf camp. Let’s do this.

Count off, Name-o-rama, Announcements, and Prayers
Welcome FNG Scanner
Azul led us out in prayer including a great little story
Great to see so many familiar faces. As a Raleigh native, it’s great to see guys I went to school with out in the gloom. Slowly but surely more and more are finding their way.
Near the end of our Four Corners set, I called 10 Burpees OYO. This was to be a break before doing our last set (originally planned to be LBCs). But the Pax, spread out to each corner figured I meant 10 burpees at each corner and started rotating. Franzia suggested I could call an audible to get everyone back on track. But as I saw it, it was the Pax that had called the audible. And we were committed. And it was beautiful.
Always a pleasure and an honor,
