Day 59 of the 2017 season: Platte River - Fun session and it went according th the WA forecast

My first time with successful results here at Plate River. Directly on-shore winds and waves made riding a little difficult. The inside shore break was in very shallow water made it interesting. It was fun with the on-shore winds to play in the shore break but after to or three carves you were on the beach.
Did several of these circuits, run the breakers and head back up wind to do it again. It was a fun, fast, speed wise session, jumping, olling all was good.
