Surf Reports by marklukach

From the lot it looked like a Fair-, but from the water it was more like a Fair+. Some decent outside waves, a bit sectiony and weak but otherwise a fun drop. My buddy who was surfing scored some great drops, while on the handplane I had my fair share of fun walled up waves. The highlight was one wave where I hit a chop on the drop and got some air. The safest thing to do in this circumstance is dive through the face, rather than try to keep riding, which I tried to do...but didn't really succeed. All I know is that I ended up getting ejected skyward by the wave like Goose in Top Gun.

I was at the contest in the morning, and then suffered through watching the webcast for the latter part of it. The constrast between being there and the online broadcast was so striking I had to write more on it at my blog. So, if for some tragic reason you are not outside on this gorgeous sunny national holiday and want some reading to break up your work day, click the link.

In 1878 the King Philip wrecked just south of what is now ###### St at Ocean Beach. The remains have been buried under the sand, but every now and then due to erosion, some of the remains are unearthed. I remember seeing the wreck in 2007, and a quick internet search shows that the last time the boat was visible before that was in the 1980s.

Last night a town hall meeting went down to discuss the erosion at ######, and how it can be resolved. Surfpulse has already posted a solid summary of the issue and the different approaches discussed, thanks to them for the quick reporting. The key point to recognize is that the city council is meeting today at 2pm, and it's an open meeting for people to raise their concerns.

Saturday 7pm - Linda Mar, fair surfing

Bodysurfed some decent waves with the sun going down, slamming pretty hard with little to nowhere to go. Got into some fun barrels but also went over the falls, which my dad on the beach happened to capture on film. Sometimes you get a good one, and sometimes you don't. Nice contrast to Judith's wave at Ft. Point today. There is a tad bit of redemption with the photo below.

Hello one and all stokereporters, whether you be a reporter, a reader, a local, a newbie, whoever you are:

Saturday 11am - Ocean Beach, fair surfing

Today's inside high-tide session didn't materialize like yesterday's. Still some fun ones, but it's pretty sporadic and at times very soft and mushy. Guys on boards getting the occasional good ride, for me bodysurfing was a lot of drop in and get pounded. Only a few that really lined up like yesterday. Still, it was nice to get wet before the rains come and really get us wet, and I also briefly got to chat with @redtim in the water....always enjoy meeting other stokereporters.

Had a fan-frickin-tastic bodysurfing session mid-morning, catching thumping waves on the inside during the high tide. Outside was total mush burger, but the inside was heaving and offering some epic barrels if you were willing to go for it. I had a world-class wipe-out...flew down the face and saw it hollowing out in the most unforgiving way, so I chucked my hand plane and went fetal. My buddy who was paddling back out said he saw me spitting through the barrel curled up like a baby. But beyond the wipe-out some very very very fun waves, looked decent for surfing too.
