Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)

Shitty paddle. clean waves as reward. More shitty paddling after catching one.

I would appreciate a longer period.

I saw one really good wave I would totally want to surf, but with the wind, and the poo potential, it's not worth it.

honk honk this morning and the bagels are warm. the winds are much lighter from east this AM and some sun on the back of the shell to help out with the internal heating. the waves are backed-up and mushed out with the tide. If you can Id say give it peek at 12-1pm. Wind should still be blowing from the eastern land gunga gulunga and the tide will be low and about ready to push back up. The seagulls also told me they think middle beach is rocking.

Bring that lead vest out there with you... frosty micro-waves are radiating all up and down the Beach.
4 feet and firing, offshore wind, but a little fat from the high tide this morning.

this is a report from location turtle from location somewhere. the bagels are fresh and so are the waves. east winds are blowing and the turtle is going... gunga gulunga.

Large and in charge this morning. Paddle could be difficult (I heard varying stories) and so could the rides. There were moments of glory, and some fairly epic holddowns / wipeouts. Size was 1.5x+ on the sets. Lots of whitewater was keeping the crowds (WAY) down.

Wasn't my best session; was simply surfing like shit. Seemed to have a (somewhat) undeserved bad hangover. Blew lots of takeoffs :-( But my one epic HH+ throwing left made the session.

Wednesday 6pm - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

Long period is better. Give it fair plus-still plenty of good sized dumpers at the shore break. Mostly Hella close out, but I dig that stuff.

It was surfable but that's about it (usually just a drop then 1 or 2 turns if u were lucky). If this were summer I'd say it was fair but it's November and this is FUBAR. I was shocked at the number of takers this morning given the conditions but then again it is a holiday for some people

sounds like if you took this risk this morning you reaped the rewards.

It's over.

So this post is a little late. But I was watching OB last Tuesday the 4th at 9:59am, and I saw this surfer catch some air at the end of the wave. Not sure who it is, but thought they'd like the photo... Looked like a beautiful day.

As for today -- I was out there in the fog at dawn this morning. Totally smooth, but a bit sloppy and smaller than I had expected.
