Later that day...

Not to keep beating a dead horse, but this is a shot from later in the afternoon on Sunday. We were out there for our second session, in which I completely flailed, but Nash and Slim redeemed themselves. Hard not to dwell on a day like that when you see impending storm surf for the next week.

Anybody ever smack their ear so hard on a wipeout that they thought they may have gone deaf? My left ear is still popping a little.

Props to Down The Line on the oregonsurf.com message board for the jpeg!

It was a rare day indeed... we need to double up to make up for all the times we get skunked in the winter!

Sounds and looks like a good score!

I know of a couple people that thwapped their in the water so hard they busted their ear drum.

After further research, there's a 50/50 chance that's me on that wave.

Screw it - it's you.

This past fall at PC I duck dove a wave and came up with the old water in the ear syndrome...

usually a tug (on the ear) will fix it...not this time...

It bugged the shit outta me and affected my balance...

I tried every home remedy offered by one and all to no avail...

It tortured me off and on for 3 weeks or so...I had never encountered this before and hope I don't again
