San Francisco - Ocean Beach

Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)


743

Shockingly fun small session this AM. Seemed primarily suited to foam / longboards. Scored a lot of long rts & lefts, some with enough face for multiple top turns. Waist - should high. Pretty stoked.

Not 'good', but definitely freaking good for right now.

Fun times to be had. Everyone seemed to be out at the drunk walk. Must still be good. Hard to get to the beach though.

OB was def surfable this morning from 7-9. Pretty clean if not a bit closed out. You had to find the gems but people were out there getting shacked.
by 9:30 it was a mess and everyone had bailed.

Best it's been in weeks. Head high on set. Glassy. Barrels here and there if you get lucky. Wind is on it now though. Stoked!!

Wednesday 3pm - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Pretty lousy this AM. Howling winds, small jumbled short period surf.

Made it come alive on the sponge, more fun to get wet than not. Not very surfable.

Decent paddle out as long as the set doesn't get you and fun waves, now for my lack of fitness from over 1 month of not surfing I would say it was fab, yes fab.

Wind was coming in along with Fog so you likely missed it.

Decent waves, sunshine, and a new foot wash to feel guilty about using in times of drought.

SUNDAY: Quality Junk. Light to zero winds, lots of waves, what's not to like. A few surprise overhead peaks rolling through. Quality junk can be lots of fun with its hidden gems and low consequence conditions that encourage experimentation and looseness.

Interesting morning out there - funky currents plus onshore wind but glassy all at the same time with the occasional corner/peak if you were in the exact right spot - classic OB! It was fun watching a couple of cowboys just south of me get annihilated on the inside grinders - hats off to those cats for pushing themselves over the ledge. Stoked I got to surf even though it's Spring. Key to success - low expectations.

Thursday 10am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Junky, funky, spring time conditions. No wind - but no matter. Admittedly I went out at a terrible spot - and it did get better as I drifted. On the plus side - I did observe some dolphins getting some - and it wasn't crowded. at all.

conditions at the moment are horrible. about 1-2 foot with a side wind blowin. A few longboarders out but nobody is riding anything, don't waist your time driving to the beach....hoping for better waves soon
