Friday afternoon after work I went and swam around the pier. Good swim! First, before driving to the pier, I stopped and broke down and purchased a new pair of Churchill Slasher Fins. I just bought the same fins and size as last time. I used them in my swim today and they are GREAT! The fin is firm and delivers a powerful, propulsive kick if needed.
The water was colder today than yesterday-I'm guessing 59 degrees or a bit colder. Water color aqua blue green, fresh and invigorating. High tide but not crazy rough. My swim out was easier than my swim in. On my way in I swallowed a bit of seawater and stopped to puke for half a minute. The swim in felt like I was swimming against the direction of the water-very unusual. Several surfers were on each side of the pier-the surf was about 4 feet with mediocre shape. Overall, a nice, crisp swim. Love my new Churchill Slasher Fins!
