Walled and windy


A dropping SW swell and a rising west wind made for less than fair conditions, didn`t stay out very long.Beautiful day just the same!

sewage plant sunrise

 
Out early as usual but the swell was still walled with a little morning sickness. No surf today but a great day just to enjoy creation

springsuits @ 6am

Finally glassy again this morning,warm water, light offshore and the crowd slept in. Kind of walled on sets,so wave selection (? anything I can catch ) was critical. I had a few good (short) sections,great start to the day

SE wind

The early morning wind was with us again today. There was the random decent section but conditions were a little sloppy most places. I`ll check it again later when the tide comes up.

Taking a break

There was still some surf out there today but I`m just too tired. Too much sun and heat, and the out of school crowd. I`ll be back at it in a day or 2

summer solstice

Longest day of the year, school`s out, lot`s of folks in the water.( too warm for a fullsuit)I didn`t get but 3 waves in an hour but at least I was surfing while most of the planet was working to eat.

Molly graduates!

Molly graduated from high school tonight. Very cool, sad at the same time. Not my little kid anymore but in charge of a life that is all her creation.As a parent I have so many hopes for her and pray she won`t have to travel down some of the dead ends I tried. But God is always good and will be with her.


Thursday 6-19

Foggy early, couldn`t even see what was out there. I waited for the fog to clear and the tide to rise, but the wind blew early and messed things up a bit

Hump day

 
Daily bread cuts himself a slice
 

 
Crossed-up combo swell today.Peaks closed on themselves quickly but there were brief moments of excellence. Fog rolled in as I was getting out.

morning therapy

Got out for awhile mid-morning, the water is colder but felt great.Crowd was manageable and the combo swell had some nice peaks bouncing in.

Fathers Day

Gray and dribbly this morning, with a somewhat jumbled weak swell. I chose not to surf but headed home to be with my family. Give your dad a hug today and give thanks to your heavenly Father

Friday before work

Went out early at the jetties again, glassy at first but soon went sidewind. Smaller swell but still fun and water at 66 is nice

south swell`s still going

I managed to get in the water this mid-morning. The wind was coming up but the swell was still ok. Surfed at 45th for an hour, then back to work. 67 degree water means no rubber necessary

south is in

I went down to look before 6am, had to be on the job early today and couldn`t surf but it looked like it was going to be pretty good today. I can go later or tomorrow morning

side wind Sunday

A negative tide and side wind had conditions a little goofy but I managed to have fun up at the cliffs, water was warm but the breeze felt cold.
