Holy Sh...

Last Friday has to go down as one of the toughest labor intense days I've had in a long time. I know I may sound like a wimp to some of you that do this kind of sh!t everyday but... man.

As you know, I've been working at Creed SUP for almost two months now and since the first day, we've been waiting for a container of 150 sup boards to show up. Little did I know, that day would come sooner than later.

Last Friday a diesel truck rolled up and it was go time. We had only two hours to unload 150 30-40 pound boxes. I have to give the owner of Creed SUP, Randy, huge props. He has done this before and man-handled the boxes like no other. He got up inside the container and unloaded every single box while three of use picked up the boxes and stacked them in the warehouse. My arms are just getting back to normal three days later.

After the unloading that we did in record time, we had to ship out as many as we could for the Friday cut off. So we had to move and load on top of that. Hectic.

Dreading the next container to arrive in the next couple weeks? Nah, I know what to expect now. But I know I'll be hurting aftwards.

Time for some waves. Peace out.

Less than two hours later, that container was on it's way back to Long Beach.
