brettbarley #SOLOSHOTsundays vol. 8

I rode my 5'0" Fling by @super_brand for most of the swell we had the other week. A couple sessions the waves were just a touch soft, and it made every surf a blast.

  •   lamann17 Fucken right! Shaka @brettbarley 5d
  •   thepalmscollective This photo's awesome, come check out ours and maybe follow us ;) 4d
  •   lilo__ferreira Brett, sorry yo bother you. Just wanted to ask you what do you do to not lose your arm band with tag? It lasted me one single wave! One 2 feet wave. That velcro seems not enough at all. Any advice? Thanks a lot, keep shredding, aloha 2d
  •   brettbarley @lilo__ferreira uh... Nothing special. I have found a way to put the strap through the plastic that makes it right before even using the Velcro, but really the strap is enough. I've eaten it on some solid waves too 2d
  •   lilo__ferreira Thank you so much for your answer. I can imagine, I'seen you in solid waves using it at obx. I'm defenitely doing something wrong. I'll try to find that way to put the strap though the plastic. Thanks a lot, aloha 2d
  •   brettbarley @lilo__ferreira I'll direct message you a video of how to do it. 2d
  •   brettbarley I've only lost one armband ever... And it was because it got loose and I thought "eh I'll catch one more then fix it" and then the lip landed directly on my arm as I fell. 2d
  •   lilo__ferreira I will really really appreciate that. Thank you very much Brett. That will help me big time because I still can't figure it out 2d

brettbarley When you're 3yrs old, a Bass this size is a task all on your own. He tried to hand me the rod but I wouldn't let him! It was an epic fight for him.

Love taking my boy fishing, and having a Lifevest for him that leaves me worry free while we are on the water. Thanks @oneill for thinkin of the kids!

So if you're looking for something to do in the VB area, come on down at lunch and meet some of the team. See ya there!

When you're over ambitiously searching for tubes that aren't there, and then just floppin around all in between.

brettbarley "Reflection of 5"
An edit highlighting some Hurricane and Tropical Storm swells over the last 5yrs. I've missed a few good ones, but it's a good way to get excited for some possible storm activity this fall. Hopefully all surf, no damage

It'll be going LIVE tomorrow morning... (or late tonight if you are subscribed to my youtube.com/sirbrettly channel)

brettbarley I'm lovin the amount of surf we've been having.

But, these slick calm conditions lately have me itching to put some more fish in my Pro Catch @icemulecoolers

More fish in the cooler means more meat in the fridge/freezer like I got to do back in July.

When you do a shove-it, drop back in fins first, ride up and shove-it out at the top of the wave again... While 3 people are in the way haha

brettbarley Man it was rough this morning, as far as jetski fishing goes, white caps are no bueno. I started out high speed wahoo fishing, only to realize I didn't have my drag set tight enough when I got a bite, and my Senator backlashed like no other! Haha so I handlined it all in, only to realize it was all for a worthless False Albacore.

I decided to head in after that cause conditions were so difficult, but trolled for Mahi on my way. I managed one bailer for my efforts, and was happy to climb outa the pits the day started in.

I kept trolling and got another bite, but it missed, and I turned around to see either a King or Wahoo jump (staring straight at sun). And not but a minute after that, while circling to try and get the fish to come back, Im watching and a Sailfish is b-lining from my outside bait to my closer one, only to disappear without hitting. What a sight!

Moral of the story... Keep on keeping on, you never know what some perseverance will provide. Thankful for it all.

  •   matheeze Nice one mate! 2w
  •   brettbarley @dford777 it's where the hot water comes off the engine... I rerouted the hose so we have hot water to stay warm in the winter. It also doubles as a wash down Hose to keep blood off the ski after landing a fish. 2w
  •   redfrogbungalows Howz that 40lb mahi! Looks like they been biting hard! More excited to see you charging 6 foot Bluff! Winter is almost here! Hope to see you soon! @brettbarley 2w
  •   brettbarley @redfrogbungalows hahaha they actually have, but I'm inshore of the Gulf Stream. I'm excited for some 6' Bluff too! Can't wait to get back 2w
  •   brettbarley @redfrogbungalows I just go pick up strays basically. . Meats meat ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 2w
  •   ron_burke @brettbarley are you interested in private coaching/surf guide on the island? 2w
  •   dford777 Hell yeah that's killer. Did the same to my ski too But the hose I have coming out isn't as thick as that. Off to slay some salmon on it tomorrow. 2w

brettbarley @bencrum_ shot this speed blur the other evening at the Lighthouse.

Felt so good to surf some real waves for the first time in months. And the swell lasted 3 days!

brettbarley It's not often I go #NoFilter, but when I do, it's on the last morning of a 3day swell, of an epic sunrise

Sore, tired, and ready to lay down after tons of runs up the beach and leg burning waves. Thank you El Niño for the early August Nor'easter blast! Hopefully a sign of things to come
