Well that title was easy…
IN THE NEWS: Mathew ‘HoneyDick’ Khouri, a.k.a. Khouri in a hurry has left us. He hasn’t died, yet, but he did leave Nicaragua to head back to work in the outer banks of North Carolina and he probably wishes he was dead because apparently it’s like 48 degrees there today. I’d like to say it’s 84 here, but it’s probably hotter than that. Other than not getting good waves, Khouri is going to be preparing one Low Country Boil after another and serving it to drunken vacationers during the busy months on the banks. I’m sure he’ll be happy to come back in October to surf some small waves and teach surf lessons. In the mean time we’ll miss him and send him as many good surf picks as we can.
ALSO IN THE NEWS: We have two additional members to the family. This always happens with Kayla…I send her on some errands and she comes back with puppies! I was home sick (not homesick…just home-sick) and she shows up and says she’s got a surprise. My stomach wrenched as I thought she might be bringing me some special food treat. Then she walks in with two little precious surprises…and it’s impossible to be mad as I’m instantly in love. I came up with the names Tula and Dalé….then we started calling Tula “Osita”, spanish for little bear and so her name as officially been changed to Osa. So Dalé and Osa were adopted from the fruit vendor on the side of the road in Managua…that’s just where you find puppies here one way or another…on the side of the road. They’re precious…and they definitely made my sick day a little better.
THE WRAPUP: We’ve got waves….they’re pretty big today and we’re aiming for some outer reef Miramar. The winds are heavy so it’s going to be some tricky drops, but it’s a lot better than living on the outer banks. Sorry Khouri. Gotta go…Surf’s Up! Oh yeah….that little surfer in the photo is what Kayla calls the “Robot Surfer”…it’s actually a remoter control surfer that a guest brought. It’s pretty fun though…it can get some wicked air.
