San Francisco - Ocean Beach

Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)


50

Guess what? We have another overcast morning at ocean beach. We've still got some good 14s groundswell energy in the water but it's fairly hacked up by local wind action. There are a number if semi decent looking peaks producing head high waves. I'd say it's definitely worth a paddle. Fair-

This morning Ocean Beach brings us overcast skies and a moderate onshore breeze. A new gulf groundswell is showing at the buoys at around 4'@14s. This is producing cleaner lines than we saw yesterday and waves in the head-high range. Things are looking fairly sectiony but could be fun if you find the right peak. I suspect a drive south would pay off nicely.

It's a foggy/overcast morning at Ocean beach with a light to moderate onshore wind. The longer period windswell that we saw yesterday has faded quite a bit and we've got more funk and chop from the strong local at-sea west wind. It's looking pretty disorganized but there is still quite a bit of energy in the water so there are waves out there for the taking if you need to get out. It's still looking slightly overhead. Poor+

Saturday 12pm - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

Just got back from the airport. Headed straight for the beach. It's beautiful down here. Sunny with a moderate onshore breeze. The surf is big enough that it's not doing too much damage. Maybe 1.5x over on the bigger sets and a reasonably challenging, but not impossible, paddle. Heading out. It looks like it could blow out later

I dropped by Ocean Beach near ###### from 2-4 to get some fresh air and enjoy the warm weather. A few people were getting in good rides, but overall it was looking disorganized. I saw a pair of dolphins catch a really nice ride on a couple of waves. Looked fun!

Definitely some juicy head high waves out there, breaking fast and hollow. It seems to have improved a little over the past few hours, and was pretty clean around 9am. The winds still seem pretty light. It's hot and sunny, a beautiful day at the beach. Today would be a good Friday to bail from work early and catch some waves if you can, so long as the wind doesn't pick up too much this afternoon.

Sfob has waves for the patient. Its patchy but I got about 4 nice ones in an hour. Some clean head high rides if you're lucky...

Friday 8am - Ocean Beach

Sfob clean shoulder to head high, offshore. Not as epic as it sounds, but shaoing up very nicely.

###### Poor - fair
A bit warbly, fat on the outside closing out on the inside, but some decent shoulder high + corners to snag if you're in the right spot. More crossed up than the last few days but hopefully size will increase throughout the day

Thursday 2pm - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

###### was pretty fun around 8 a.m. once the tide started to drop. It actually went offshore for a bit. Keeping fingers crossed for Friday a.m.

Thursday 10am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

post sesh report - swell has dropped slightly since yesterday and peaks are shifty, offering plenty of closeouts and paddling, but if you find the right sandbar it's fun and a beautiful day at the beach. saw some dolphins, sea lions and seals splashing around in the lineup too.

A bit textured and closing out but some fun peeling shoulder high sets. Worth getting wet imho.
