Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)

Wednesday 8am - Ocean Beach

Although the wind is blowing harder than it says on paper at SFOB and it looks crappy, there is some fun wedgy 3'-4' shorepound to be had.

Wednesday 7am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Maybe some fun to be had pulling into closeouts on the inside, but just choppy and weak for the most part

Wednesday 6am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Since yesterday, the swell has dropped and the wind has come up. We've got a moderate to strong wind out the southwest and the surf is looking junky and unappetizing, in the chest to shoulder high range. It's not looking much fun. Hopefully the winds will die off by tomorrow and we'll get little windswell action in.

Tuesday 11am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Sloppy at ######. 2 to 4 feet. Wind threatening. You're not missing anything.

This morning brings us a moderate breeze out the southwest and waist to chest high waves. It's fairly crumbly and a bit junky but there are plenty of rideable waves. Poor+

###### report. It's a sunny day at obsf. The winds are howling and the surf is raw and junkie in the 1.5 - 2x range. It's victory at sea with white caps and white water everywhere. If you're a kite boarder or wind surfer today is your day. 2 kite boarders out there having fun and 1 surfer in the lineup slowly drifting south.

This holiday Monday brings us calm winds, a beautiful morning with clear skies and a decent groundswell producing waves in the 1.5x overhead range. It's fairly sectiony but a really nice wave makes an appearance from time to time. The paddle looks challenging-ish and there is a lot of energy in the water do be careful if you decide to go out. Fair+

El crapo mucho @ ######. Wind chop slop with a little ground swell showing. But disorganized and crumbly. Wind coming up to cap it all off. Kid flying a kite very nicely at 9:45 this morning. Not a good sign.

We've got some thick fog at Ocean Beach this morning. It's hard to see what's going on but my guess given the light winds and the fact that the longer period windswell (10-12) has made an appearance, my guess is that we've got some semi-fun surf in the chest to shoulder high range. There is only one way of really finding out though :) I'm guessing fair-

Saturday 7am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

This Saturday morning brings us overcast skies, moderate onshore winds and crappy local short period windswell. There is no real energy in the water, mostly weak crumbly waist high waves. It really doesn't look worth going in. If you were mega-jonesin you could probably snag a couple of shoulders but you'd need to be pretty desperate.

Friday 6am - Ocean Beach

You might think that since the buoys rose overnight it is worth a drive to SFOB. It's not. Stiff onshores and tiny shapeless wind ripples.

Thursday 6am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

It's another beautiful morning at the beach with clear skies, light winds and glassy conditions. Unfortunately the swell cooperateth not, with a weak 6s windswell producing weak crumbly lines. The 12s swell that a few of us enjoyed yesterday has faded into memory. It's looking like a good day for Josh to get into work early and impress his boss. We'll probably see more gulf action by Saturday.

Sfob ###### looking much cleaner than ######. Waist to chest and sluggish. Looks like some filming is going on. . .
