URBAN DICTIONARY : "DAWN PATROL : The act of getting up extremely early - sometimes before sunrise (i.e, "dawn") -to go surfing. This term is most often used by Surfers, but it still can be used outside of surfing and refers to getting a very early start to the day."

It is hard to believe that September has come and gone, and we are already well into October. There is still plenty of paddling to be done, but with less daylight hours available, it has gotten just a little harder to squeeze it in. The first week of October felt more like August. I took advantage of the warm weather and got in several great solo DAWN PATROL paddles. It takes a little motivation to roll out of bed when it is still dark, but watching the sun come up over the water more than makes up for a few minutes of lost sleep. I can't think of a better way to start the day.
