Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)

Wednesday 6am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

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+

Saw some fun shoulder high plus on the in side at ######. Outside is crumbly and fades. Red tide is in. Checked it about 2:30 to 3:30. Looked fun.

Tuesday 10am - Ocean Beach, good surfing

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!

######: waist plus, smooth, plenty of rideable mushy shoulders, breaking mostly on inside. Worth a look

Tuesday 8am - Ocean Beach

Sfob is fair-. Lots of fun small to shoulder high waves. Glassy, just needs a bit more energy.

Tuesday 8am - Ocean Beach

May have*added* years to my life with the surf this morn @ SFOB... beautiful misty fog, glassy 3'-5' waves, and seals and pelicans everywhere.

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.

We have another foggy morning at ocean beach and it's thick enough to completely obscure the view. We've got a light wind out the sw but it doesn't appear strong enough to do too much damage. The swell has picked up since yesterday with longer period energy showing. My guess is that there are decent-ish head-high+ waves to be had out there but without heading out, I don't know for sure. I'll update you post surf. Update: fog has lifted momentarily. Calling it fair-

Was on the beach at ###### and ###### from 1:30-3. Air was warm with a little bit of wind. Saw a few people down by ###### catching some fun looking, long rides. Folks coming out of the water said it was warm and fun but not terribly clean. Pretty foggy but nice to be on the beach without a sweatshirt for a change.

It's a similar story to yesterday here at Ocean Beach. We've got overcast skies and a light to moderate wind out of the southwest adding some crumble and funk to a 10s wind swell. The result is relatively uninspiring surf in the head high range. If you catch the right peak at the right time I'm guessing that you'll still be able to snag a few fun ones. Poor+
