Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)

Thursday 10am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

Decent fun at the beach. SH-HH and a bit dumpy where I was, but some that held up and just generally a beautiful day. Saw some parts with lotsa whitewater too, not sure the rewards were worth the paddle or not.

Anyway, fairly fun but am hungry for some real long period shit.

Wednesday 10am - Ocean Beach, good surfing

Some good thump out there at sunrise. 5-8ft with definite bigger sets on the way way outside. Sometimes throwing with a little hollowness if you're fortunate and/or looking to get mental.

A little mixed up, but definitely worth a paddle out.

Generally not good out there this AM. Lotsa whitewater, looked pretty marginal on the outside.

Found a spot that was working a bit better. Still not great, somewhat intermittent. Still - caught a handful of dumpers and a couple of racy rights that held up. Combined with a beautiful sunrise, no wind, and zero other surfers out (actually I think I saw 2, but no one within a hundred yards), had a pretty fun morning (required some low expectations). Kind of felt like a fun day in the summer, not very fall like.

Wednesday 5pm - Ocean Beach, great surfing

Surf was epic+ this afternoon at ob. Well maybe not epic+ but it was pretty damn good. Glassy and light offshore. DOH in the ###### but shorter period meant only moderate energy. Rode my 6'4 cause I shred like that... Wtf happened to stoke report? Does anyone even post reports anymore?

Fun as snot. SH-HH soft faces and long, long rides. As glassy as I have ever seen OB. Punishment free. A little soft but super fun with a tiny bit of foam. Lots of stoked where I was.

Uncharacteristically enjoyable.

Can't call it 'good' this AM. Lumpy, bumpy, junky. But there was a bit more throwing involved than I was seeing dawn patrol last few days. Could have been different tide condition, could have been different part of the beach.

Regardless, I had more fun today despite the slightly funky conditions. Didn't look that great, but surfed kind of fun. SH-HH on the sets, a few rights that held up nicely. Personally, I had a better time today than on the weekend. I think the best times to surf over the last few days were low tide / afternoon, which just did not work for me :-(

Wednesday 2pm - Ocean Beach, fair- surfing

Cleaned up only a little bit from this morning. Definitely ridable, but a lot of windswell peaks that don't provide a lot of face or just crumble then close out. It's super warm outside and the water feels great, but winds are starting to pick up and the tide is on the rise. I don't think you'll miss much if you can't make it out and there's more swell on the way. GO GIANTS!

Little waist+ nuggets popping through this morning at sunrise. Not great, but good enough to get wet before work. Couple of shoulders/mini peaks. Wind was coming up quick, setting the table for nice lunch of sloppy seconds.
