Was surfing at Watson by myself Friday lunchtime, 12/17. Decent waves, lots of fish and wildlife. Really a good session by most standards, light wind, shoulder high with some head high sets, not a long period, but breaking outside and rolling through a bit. A porpoise about 100 yards out that was mulling around started some pretty furious tail slapping. It continued to do so, so it wasn't just a one time thing. I looked south and saw a huge fin cruising just outside the break coming my way. I caught a wave and paddled in. Can't say I've ever been in that kind of situation before. Just a shout out for that dolphin making me aware.

I don't check this forum enough, what a great story. i always FEEL like porpoises are protecting us and you have a great example of that.
