Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)

Fast, hollow, breaking close to shore and a couple of feet overhead on the N end. The ###### was bigger and a tougher paddle. Here are a couple of pics from in front of the ######.

It's a grey, drizzly morning at ocean beach. The long period groundswell has mostly faded but we've still got a very meaty 12s swell in the water producing waves in the 1.5x range. Winds are light and conditions are clean, with long peeling waves in a few spots on the beach. I hope you've got some energy left after the weekend. Fair+

Some serious sets rolling in a little after sunrise this AM. I didn't manage to photograph anyone on them, but here are some of the smaller sets.

Sunday morning at ocean beach brings us overcast skies, sw winds and a powerful sw swell producing waves in the 2x over range. It's cleaner than yesterday and more consistent, making the paddle look a bit challenging. The wind isn't doing much to hurt the shape. Overall it looks very fun if you like the bigger stuff. If you do go out, be careful and know your limits.

Saturday 11am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

1.5-2x and fun. A bit shifty but the paddle isn't too bad. Took a few of the sets on the head and even that wasn't bad. Fog rolled in around 10:00 making it spooky.

SFOB post-sesh report: Woo hoo!!! Solid 8-12 foot and fun as hell. Wind puttin' some moguls on the mountains' faces adding to the fun.

Saturday 10am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

I didn't manage to get any decent surfing pictures due to the rain and the fog. Here's one that perhaps captures some of the mood of this morning. Overall I'd call the surf fair-, that's if you like your surf meaty and a bit chewy.

Trying to see thru the fog @ SFOB. Def. lots of swell in the water, but it's also kiting. Despite the wind, I think the surf is holding up.

Saturday 7am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

Well, it's a very strange morning at Ocean beach. The thunderstorm has died down and we've got relatively strong winds out the NW. Yes, I said thunderstorm. We've got a thick fog obscuring the view of the surf and the SW groundswell that we have been waiting for hasn't arrived but instead we've got a very significant SW groundswell showing at the buoys with some powerful 22s energy. To best honest, I really don't know what to expect out there.

Warm, overcast and glassy. Showing signs of swell though high tide blessing the waves with its glory. Fingers crossed for improvement in tide. Saw a few good waves though nobody was on them.

So close but yet still far away....

Sfob not epic but plenty of fun. Fair-. Small but plentiful waves. Some held up, most didn't... :-)

Thigh to shoulder high near ###### Cove, easy walk/paddle out, even on a 9'6". Current hadn't kicked in when I got out, but the shifting tide looked to be ruining the morning glass. Plenty of lively "aquatic fauna".
