San Francisco - Ocean Beach

Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)


981

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.

Tough paddle. Welcome to fall. Took me a while, probably partially because I am not fully fit for conditions. Once out, there were plenty of 1.5-2x set waves. Lots of fun meaty rights and lefts. Not quite throwing... Felt like OB was just warming me up :-)

Stoked.

Wednesday 6pm - Ocean Beach, fair- surfing

This morning was fun but rut roh.....got ugly this afternoon. As cliché as it sounds, man drowned by sea is the headline. Lots of responders out there. Reminder surf with a buddy and get everyone's back. Huge rips out there today pulling guys out 300+ yards past the break. Luckily it wasn't swinging North South otherwise there definitely would have been popover rescues. Photo copyright FatNewt Productions.

Surprisingly fun SH peaks on tap today. Relatively glassy, zero punishment. Fun on a beautiful morning. Not lots of energy, but felt very playful to me.

Fun morning sesh - chest to head high, mostly clean, with short-ish corners. Warm water helped. Either the sandbars or swell aren't optimal right now, but still good ones to be had.

Also saw a dolphin get barreled (on accident?), so that was cool.
