We did the drive and checked a bunch of the SMOT spots. Didn't see much and ended up coming back up to one for a little paddle-time. The breeze was a bit stronger than other spots, but it didn't seem to mess things up too much. They were already messy: WH-SH bumps with plenty of chop and reflection off the beach. The conditions weren't all that bad all things considered. There were plenty of waves to ride.
On a personal note, I had one of those i-though-i-knew-how-to-surf-what-happened mornings. I kooked-up plenty of take-offs and blew waves outright. I face-planted, stepped off the rail, the nose, the tail... pearled like it was going out of style... back to the drawing board.
