Surfing in the Rain

A couple of Saturdays ago, I went surfing with Gabe and Mike in San Clemente. The cool part was that it was raining. It was sprinkling off and on, and we decided that we would go during one of the “off” periods. Once we were out there, the drizzle started again. It was awesome to hear the rain splashing into the sea with a gentle hiss. After it let up, there was the most magnificent rainbow I have ever seen, extending from a pier into the sky over the ocean.

Shortly thereafter, it started to really rain. A storm rolled in from the sea, and was pouring right into our eyes, so much so that we could hardly see the waves coming towards us. I couldn’t help but laugh at how thrilling it was to be out there. It was also interesting showering in the rain, and trying to drive through huge rushing currents of water flowing down and across the parking lot.
