well after reading scoobys post on crashing I had to follow!I crashed today on the way out. The waves were not to big and I saw my friend out so I thought it must be ok! wrong, I made the first set but there must have been one hell of a under tow that just pounded me back, all I say was this green monster right in front of me after that, well a mouth full of water and my pride hurt, I said fu*k it I'm going again no promblem this time. As I meet my friend he told me he crashed too. We were both screwed when we say how bad it go in no time on the way in, well my rod sounds like a sand paper on metal. Then noticed that some how my wedding ring is gone off my finger(I've only been married a year) she will be thrilled about this.
On the way in crashed again lost A $175 pair of oakleys. The funny thing is my st croix rod bent like a banana twice and nothing went wrong with it. good thing I did not lose any plugs, that would have been a real bummer!
