I went to Linda Mar on Sunday because I didn't feel like drowning at OB, and I didn't feel like sitting around on my ass eating cheese crackers all day. There was some dude out in the lineup whining the whole time about people. He was no Kelly Slater himself. It was like 4 feet and closing out across the whole beach as usual.

Pretty cool behind the scenes edit that follows Clark Little around for a day and shows how he captures his amazing shorebreak images. Worth a watch if you have a couple extra minutes -> it's about 11 minutes long.

Saturday 10am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Calm, lightly offshore winds, sunny & warm. That's where the goodness ends. Disorganized, dumpy SH-HH waves and a surprising number of people where I was--probably because the rest of the beach looked even worse than where I was. I dunno, maybe it'll clean up on the dropping tide.

I so needed this today. Took a half day at work on a gamble for some surf. Got burned the last 3 times I went out before this. Started walking down the hill about 2:30 and felt some strong onshore flow. Thought it was going to be terrible again. By the time I hit the sand, the wind was gone, and never came back. Paddled out and was greeted with clean conditions, predictable, lined up peaks a couple feet overhead, almost no current, and pretty much no one around. Most stoked I've been in a while... Scored big time... Got a ton of good rides. Had to endure multiple crap sessions before this, but afternoons like this make it all worthwhile.

I feel obligated to throw in a few words like Exostosis (surfers ear) and Meatoplasty of Ear Canal (name of the proceedure) Ok, now I feel pretty smart. Here are two pictures of my ear canal. The pic on the left shows the canal being closed/before. The pic on the right is after the surgery and shows a very open/round ear canal. Dr. Hetzler in Santa Cruz is the best. Google Dr.

Watched the gals charge Nelscott. The winner, pictured here, could have fairly competed in the men's division, she was that solid. Props to them all.

Wednesday 10am - Ocean Beach, fair- surfing

Funnish for this time of year. The wind is howling out there but there were a few fast fun head-high + peelers. Wind was turning north as I got out. Took a quarter mile of drift before I saw another soul.

It's come to my attention that a loud minority does not like surf reports. They seem to think reports will overcrowd the beach this time of year. News flash, they won't. Nobody goes out this time of year. Anyone who lives at the beach and looks at it everyday knows this.

WATER WAVING is new kind of water sport which can everybody can use on beaches without any equipment. As you can see just before the wave you start to lay on surface (similar like arrow swimming style)but you must rise your hands up (see at the end of the film). Wave takes you away to the beach. So if you catch right moment wave takes you 3 - 5 meters, sometimes you can even land on the beach.
