    It was a pretty bad session today. I didn’t catch any quality waves, mostly whitewash. I think the waves were too big and I’m still getting used to the new 8” board.

    Spot: Nusa Dua
    Time: 12am-2pm
    Stars: 3 stars on MSW
    Wind: 15-17mph, offshore/cross
    Swell: 3-5ft/12sec, middle-high tide. 830-850kJ

    Very successful surfing session today. I tried a few new spots on the east side of the island. And a new board size (8") and it was awesome. I'm going to switch to proper hardboard pretty soon.

    Spot: Nusa Dua
    Time: 11am-2pm
    Stars: 3 stars on MSW
    Wind: 12-14mph, offshore/cross
    Swell: 3-4ft/11sec, high tide. 540-600kJ

    Continue learning "English in use".
    Today lesson was about difference between "if <past> ... would" and "if <present> ... will". 

    It's very helpful. I have problems with conditional statements.

    I've been learning about a very nice Rails gem noticed. It's a special gem for notifications inside the Rails apps. The author did a great job and cover everything in docs and a screencast. Love the gem and the fact that most of the things are done in Rails way.

    And hence the notifications on Learning Story is live 🎉🎉🎉

    Today was a good day for surfing. It's still a bit windy but good enough to catch some waves and have fun. I've started learning more about this particular spot and see whether it's ridable or not just by looking on the water.
    Another thing I've learned that you can't really rely on the broadcast. Even MSW is showing incorrect information. Better to just check the cameras or go on the spot.

    Spot: Batu Bolong
    Time: 8am-10am
    Stars: 3 stars on MSW
    Wind: 11-12mph, onshore
    Swell: 4ft/9sec, high - middle tide. 600-650kJ

    I've been learning grid today to improve the design of Learning Story. I'm usually using flex boxes for everything but grids are so amazing.
    It's so much easier to split the page into nice columns and manage them as you wish.
    grid-template-columns: repeat(12, minmax(0, 1fr));

    And it's especially powerful for mobile views because you can set each block to fill the needed amount of columns:
    grid-column: span 2 / span 2;

    I know I am slowpoke in CSS but I wish I've been using them before but not only flex boxes 😃

    Spot: Batu Bolong
    Time: 8am-10am
    Stars: 2 stars on MSW
    Wind: 3-6mph, onshore/offshore
    Swell: 3.5-4ft/11sec, middle tide. 310-350kJ

    Not the perfect day for surfing. I learned that it's better to come in the morning because even after 10am there is strong wind.

    Just learned that you should always pay attention to the passing arguments in render methods.
    I have "render_to_string" method inside JSON answer in Rails controller. And I forgot to pass "locals" with my variable there.
    Either this or use @instant variables inside partial views. But it' better to always pass.

    Continue to practice surfing. Today I've tried the hardboard smaller size (8.0"). It was very hard to balance on it. 
    But in general, I am getting better at it.

    Business
    Watched a few videos of the "Digital Dolina" course (in Russian). Mostly about coming up with the new idea and building MVP as fast as possible to test the assumption. 
    I didn't learn much new, but it's good to learn the same ideas from different sources.
