Found some head high glass Thursday AM. A bit intermittent, but it was offshore & stoke abounded. Freaking great for July (!!!).

Wednesday 12pm - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

Very smooth and clean this morning from 8-10 and a few people out having a nice time save for one moron who decided it would be a good idea to yell at someone on the inside who was learning...its summer mellow out. Same guy also paddled across the wave i was riding and then said I needed to "watch out" for him. Awesome well done sir.

Next time I shall introduce you to my tri fin hovercraft with custom fins.

The ###### was very similar to what I imagine the inside of a washing machine is like. That said there were peaks to be had and everyone was out having a good time. Lots of stoke.

This is an excellent book on the state of big wave surfing by Rusty Long. It's been a while since I've taken the time to review a book, but this one is very good and worth owning. Review is here: http://thewatermanslibrary.com/Site/Finest_Line.html

Early bird got the worm, then all the worms were gone and there were a zillion birds. There was one delicious baby worm surrounded by sharing birds. Went back to the nest and the worm cam looked like the worms were better than ever for the rest of the evening. Chirp!

They will sell you stuff. And ride waves...in Balinas (sic) . Whatever happened to I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.

Sucky and stuff but it was fathers day so lots of people were out. Almost got bonked by a SUP who was out of place near the big rock.

Super fun day with good size and power. Inside and outside worked and the crowd was all stoke. Which is odd. All done by the time high tide peaked as it's no good when tide is going out.

After a month out of the water for various health issues and butt swabbing I have to say Pacifica was fun today. No wind and some decent shoulder height waves, perfect for the guys who is totally out of shape.

I was raised in Santa Cruz in the early 60’s and my family still lives there. I remember as a young lad that I use to go down to the beach and boardwalk from Felton, in the Santa Cruz mountains. I remember a closed service station that became a surf shop rental store adjacent to the Dream Inn. It was on the beachfront by the wharf.

That was fun this morning. Glassy, a bit of energy. Not epic, but trying to work an occasionally succeeding. Damn good for June.

My commute these days is over an hour each way. I've found a really good podcast Surf Splendor. The host David Scales does a great job interviewing guys who have contributed to surf in some major way. I've never been into surfing history or even professional surfing but this show has introduced me to interesting people who have lived fascinating lives.

Surfers wanted for 'superbug' study

Scientists are launching an investigation into antibiotic-resistant bacteria, known as "superbugs", by gathering data from surfers' rectums. "Beach Bums" is the first UK project of its kind, teaming researchers with the action group Surfers Against Sewage.
