Happy Sunday morning. Sadly there is a thick fog at the beach again. I'm sure it will burn off soon, but given the lack of wind and the clean, long period swell in the water, I think it's safe to say that conditions are almost certainly good. Probably 1.5x over. Get out there and get some.
surfed 10:30 to Noon south of ######, very clean and some great lefts. It started to shut down though around Noon...although there were a few guys getting some rides every now and then. It was super clean though....no wind.
We've got light winds and a real pea souper at ocean beach this morning. I can't see what the surf is doing at all but given the light winds at the beach and the local buoys, and the 20s period swell I'd guess we have some real fun under the fog. There are already quite a few guys paddling into it and I intend to join them. I'm guessing at good. Hmmmm, which board to take?
10:30 to 11:30am @ ######. 3 to 4 feet. No wind. Fun longboard waves. Swell a little confused but got a few lined up nuggets. No wind.
Many birds and seals out. It was like they had their own stoke/fish report. Cormorants heading south to Linda Mar in droves. Pelicans heading north to ######. Seals circling at ###### because they know it's going to get good any minute.
7AM at ###### was poor+. very little to catch but a few waist to shoulder high waves came through from time to time. All the same, there was very little wind and it was nice to be out among seals, dolphins and Cryptomail.
The wind has thankfully backed off and we've currently got overcast skies and a light offshore breeze at Ocean beach. Unfortunately the swell has backed off too and we've got a fairly disorganized mixture of 10s windswell and shorter period energy. I suspect if you find the right spot on the beach you'll be able to get a few chest high short rides in but it's far from spectacular. Poor+
It's almost an identical story to yesterday morning. We've got a light fog at the beach and a light onshore breeze. The wind at-sea is much stronger and doing some damage to the surf. The surf is chest to shoulder high and definitely got a touch of the funk-and-crumble. It's ridable if you need to get in but it's not going to blow your booties off. poor+
It's a clear but overcast morning at ob. The swell has picked up since yesterday but also has the wind. Were seeing long period windswell producing head high waves, accompanied by a fairly strong onshore breeze and a 20 mph nw wind a few miles offshore. The result is rideable but sectiony and crumbly surf. Not great. I'm calling it a rest and be early for work day. Poor+
