Rant - Speed Kills

Surfed OB today was fun. 2:30 - 4. I caught an OH and completely lost control due to speed, stuck my hand in the face to try and keep my balance, then fell on my face on the wave, which was sad, cause it was a 8 ft right with a long open face in front of me. On the few occasions I've caught anything 1.5 OH on my 6'4" I generally loose control at the bottom. Any suggestions?

The Giants might not have delivered last night in Game 6, but the Beach did this morning. Here's to hoping that the good surf is portends another victory.

These are a few shots from my swim out this morning. The midweek crew ripped. More shots are on my website: stevebyrnephotography.com.

Wednesday 10am - Ocean Beach, good surfing

Some good thump out there at sunrise. 5-8ft with definite bigger sets on the way way outside. Sometimes throwing with a little hollowness if you're fortunate and/or looking to get mental.

A little mixed up, but definitely worth a paddle out.

surfed the Lane yesterday with only ~6 others- though high tide and not much swell, the occasional wave came thru and allowed a cut back or so
Indeed surprising to me that that wave held these "wannabe" shoulder that well, considering the conditions.... Overall fun! Maybe going back for the weekend ;-)

Generally not good out there this AM. Lotsa whitewater, looked pretty marginal on the outside.

Found a spot that was working a bit better. Still not great, somewhat intermittent. Still - caught a handful of dumpers and a couple of racy rights that held up. Combined with a beautiful sunrise, no wind, and zero other surfers out (actually I think I saw 2, but no one within a hundred yards), had a pretty fun morning (required some low expectations). Kind of felt like a fun day in the summer, not very fall like.

Wednesday 5pm - Ocean Beach, great surfing

Surf was epic+ this afternoon at ob. Well maybe not epic+ but it was pretty damn good. Glassy and light offshore. DOH in the ###### but shorter period meant only moderate energy. Rode my 6'4 cause I shred like that... Wtf happened to stoke report? Does anyone even post reports anymore?

Hey guys and gals, I was surfing on Sat (10/18), and, after getting some horrible news about a good friend's kid, I totally spaced out and left my blue, Ward Coffey 7'6" custom shaped (says "for Suneil" on it) gun on the side of Great Hwy in the ###### (right by the tall mustard house that is getting a new facade/paint job) afterwards.
