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+
Phun in the phog. 7:30-9:30am . It was 3 to 4 , glassy and sassy out at ######. Longest cleanest right I've had a long time. A few nice lefts as well (that you out there cryptomail? I was on Eaton log, caught a nice left near you and was wearing a dwid lid. I recognize you from TV) . Many seals and pelicans as previously reported.
A great morning to be out in the water!
Ok. what happened to the heatwave? We've got another very foggy morning at OB, doing it's thing and obscuring my view of the surf. The wind is calm, the tide is medium and going out and we've got some smallish but decent period windswell energy in the water. I think it's a safe call that there are fairly clean waist to shoulder high waves to be enjoyed up and down the beach. Guessing at fair.
Light wind from the west. Peaky with a fairly easy paddle out. Waves shoulder to head high. The waves had reasonable shape giving some 'long rides' (from an Ocean Beach definition (i.e., 2 turns)) though mushy.
