Never have I had such an awesome day of surfing and looked like I got my ass kicked the next day. Sliverstrand in Ventura had perfect conditions. Partly cloudy, but sunny, zero wind, perfect A frame waves 3 to 6 feet. There was even a rainbow at one point and only two other surfers in the water. But at one point during the session my leach whipped me in the face as I was diving underneath a wave. I didn’t even wipe out, just routine duck diving. So now I look like I got in a bar fight, even thought I feel fine.
