The Trifecta

Once again
That perfect combination
the three egg omelet of goodness
the holy trinity that makes for surf perfection
wind
water
swell

came together
as it always does
but this time
...

the weather forecast
was for
"summer like"
highs in the 80's

the swell
was a serviceable
combo
some from this direction
and some from that

The water was
by some reports
as good as it gets

maybe just wear
trunks
and get a jump start
on that
summer
belly
rash

but alast
it was not to be

I for one
am ready
to hand over
that ominous title
"Devil Winds"
not to those
breezes
that come from
the North East
beautifully shaping
whatever swell
at hand
into cover  photo
perfection
and occasionally
burning the house down

The true Devil Winds
come from the south
and blow a perfectly nice
weekend surf
to smithereens

suitable for tourist
surf schools
and the truly desperate

I left them to it

Yes in the
trifecta
of wind
water
and swell

We were one fecta short
