Paddled out into the random wave generator early. HH mushburgers and mixed up. Good to get a little size, but the shape wasn't so great. I don't think I had a single wave that produced a wall. Mostly just slow rollers. Weather was super nice and the water was warm. Had plenty of folks out there to keep me company too.

Just so you're prepared when if you decide to get skunked this weekend and you don't get double-skunked.

This video was taken by Pablo Lemo over Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, CA. It was executed using a drone. The surf scene is typically seen from the shore line. The view filmed from, gives a different perspective, one might seen by a bird in flight.

"The drones, which are 3D printed and are meant to carry a GoPro camera, can fly up to 40 mph and can stay airborne for between 10 to 20 minutes. While similar drones are able to track the rider through a smart phone app, the Airdog links to a waterproof wrist-worn device known as an air leash.

Rant - Handplanes

I want to pickup a handplane, had a lot of fun playing around on a friends recently. Anyone have any recommendations as to a good brand/what style is best for playing around this area with? I'm not super crafty and don't have the tools otherwise i'd look into making my own.

Any suggestions on which shops have a good selection in the area?

I don't often get hopped at OB, but when I do, seems like lately it's always by some girl who is still struggling to stand up on a surfboard! Taking advantage of your female status is bad karma, chiquititas. So is bringing your beginner friend out to OB without at least a quick lesson on etiquette and how to hold on to the board when a set comes. Surf was fair this morning btw.

hiked out over a mile to check somewhere to surf alone after a long weekend. paddled out and had it to myself for over an hour then to my surprise i was joined by 7 of my closest friends. I just don't get it anymore, even if i go off the beaten path to try and escape people just keep coming =/

Next time i might as well go surf ano island but knowing people they will probably try and join me. Does anyone have any recommendations to escape the masses? I was thinking of bathing in seal blood but I don't think that will be conducive to my health.

Fairly weak but very clean, no wind. SH on sets, generally waist high. Fun with foam. Objectively poor+. Subjectively, kinda fun. Very few out, private surf session.

Very warm water and some gigantic jellyfish. 10-12" diameter ish.

Waves that came through were weak and small. Generously WH. Started fairly clean with the slack morning wind, but once the wind came up, the surface texture basically made what was barely rideable, unrideable. Water is still warm and the purple sails, which I'd never seen before, were out in force. Crazy looking little sea creatures.

Wind was light and not a lot of surface texture, but it was pretty fat when I first got out there. The shape improved later on, but sets were really inconsistent with long lulls. There were some occasional nice shoulder high corners coming through, but they were popping up at random one at a time every 20 minutes or so. Lots of work to get it. Poor+ conditions, but I had a GOOD time.

Saturday 10am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

lead by example, right?

some kind of fun peaks coming in this morning. a bit crumbly and wonky with a light but steady onshore breeze but definitely surfable. got a bit better as the tide dropped. chest to shoulder high on some really spaced out sets. not many options up/down the beach, really only the one peak. the cam made it look better than it was but i'm not complaining.

Hey -

Thinking of heading down to El Salvador last week of July. Some forecasts are predicting absolute crap but the some are claiming it will be good. I surf a fair amount at OB but I am a relative newbie to that area. I don't need it to be huge but I am hoping there are fun waves every day or it's not worth paying for a trip! So... a few questions:

Not your tropical-getaway trip. But beautiful none the less.

Just to keep it real... a reminder of why we surf, and what we are up against every time we get in the water. At the end of the day we seek a thrill and a challenge, at what ever level that is for each of us.
The ocean doesn't care if you are at OB or Linda or Mavs. It can crush you, cut your throat or drown you any time, when you lest expect it. Never forget who is in charge...
