Surf Reports for Ocean Beach (SFOB)


50

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+

Saturday 10am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

###### was choppy, chunky and semi ridable 3 to 5 this morning between 8am and 9:30. A few good corners to be had but looks like chop was getting on it . And no sun...despite my report earlier this week calling for sunshine and offshores. Keep in mind I am a Kook.

Saturday 7am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Saturday morning isn't the glorious sunny spectacle that I was hoping for, instead we've got overcast skies and a moderate onshore breeze. The windswell that quite a few of us enjoyed/suffered yesterday has dropped considerably in size and is now producing shoulder high ish waves. The wind isn't doing too much damage but is adding a light crumble topping. Overall it's not looking bad, I saw a few fun looking shoulders and I'm heading out to investigate further. Poor+

Paddled out at ###### at 8:30am. 30 minutes later I finally made it out and when I looked up I was about a 1/2 a mile south. Great looking waves coming through, but scattered peaks made them tough to chase down. Totally exhausting.

Friday 8am - Ocean Beach

Tale of 2 sessions @ SFOB. 25 min, 10,000 duck dive, paddle followed by glassy, clean, well shaped, if a little unorganized HH+ goodness.

Friday 8am - Ocean Beach

Sfob ###### looked pretty surfable but a punishing paddle. I passed.

This Friday morning brings us clear skies and a light wind. There is a low level but thick fog hanging over the middle and south of the beach obscuring the view of the surf. It's clear enough on the ###### to see head high ish windswell breaking fairly cleanly. I think it's fair to say that most parts of the beach are experiencing the fair quality waves you'd expect from 12s energy. It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day and a great weekend (weather wise)

Foggy with a short interval swell out there. A lot of people paddling for it, seems like a rough one. Size is about 1.5x with some lined up rights. Fair+ if you can make it out

Thursday 6am - Ocean Beach, poor surfing

Conditions this morning at Ocean Beach look almost identical to yesterday. We've got overcast skies and a moderate wind out of the southwest putting a good deal of crumble and sectionification onto a waist to chest high windswell. The end result is wavification of the local aquatic landscape unappetizing to wave sliders. Doable if you are desperate, but not great. Poor+
