Fuck. NW/SW combo up here is pretty amazing. Headed north with plans for 4 Mile, but no winds, and I got the reefs up at Waddell abandoned. Some plus size sets, as in several feet overhead. And thumping. Had to straighten out on a bigger one, and was driven all the way to the inside. Spent some time under water. Only got 6 or so waves, but that one had size, and my wave in was a standup shack. Excited about this swell. Time to play.

I gotta say, this is some of the biggest summer surf I have ever seen in Santa Cruz. Fun times today! Took the kids out to watch a contest at the lane this morning which was cool before some water time myself. I just walked down to the beach access by the house we are staying at and the waves are washing across the road (east cliff). I have seen that in the winter but never the summer!"Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will..."

^^^ you over by 26th? I used to live on Palisades. My backyard was Lake Moran. I had this sick tomato garden in the there until a huge south swell swept in and over the road, filling the lake with salt water. And destroying my crop. Lucky for me, my room mate new how to clone plants and we started anew on higher ground.
Good timing kona. The next few days may be the best of the summer.

Got stuck playing golf yesterday afternoon but checked it out around 7pm last night on the way home. Big long walls of doom at the beachbreaks in PB. Got in the water at 6 this morning at low tide which kinda sucked but got some fun ones. Paddled out at Calumet and surfed Cindy's mainly. Fun, not super good or consistent but good start to the day. Should be a great holiday weekend if the swell holds.

Where you going to be in the morning? Quite honestly, this surf is out of my league so I'd love to come snap some pics of you. No worries either way though.
FYI, just got back from watching pleasure point and it is huge out there! A zoo though"Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will..."

Hanging with my son in the mornings. Might make a trip east to watch some surf tomorrow. I'm headed north in the evenings. As far as the wind will let me get toward San Mateo. Away from the zoo.
West Cliff had some action. You know the south is sizable when this spot starts breaking.
And decent when five guys are surfing it.
The crowds were over at the Lane. Although many went unridden.
New camera is in the mail. Yay.

I managed to luck into a few fun lefts for lunchtime today. Sun is shining, wind is pretty light and waves were rolling through, not much else to ask for.

I surfed Trestles last night. Cottons was double overhead+, maybe the biggest I have ever seen it. The guys on waves looked like ants. Upper Trestles was the same, just huge. I saw a couple of sets shut down the whole point, and it takes a big swell to do that. I surfed the barbedwires area, which was a bit mellower. Some very good lefts coming in, but you had to wait. The big sets there were DOH, but less power, so a bit less scary. I did get caught by one while paddling back out from a left, and it rinsed me pretty well.
My buddies who paddled out at the point at uppers said they saw a set or two that pushed triple overhead. I did not see that, so I won't claim it, but these guys have surfed extensively in Hawaii, so I would give them the benefit of the doubt. Trestles seems to be bearing the brunt of the energy from this one.
I might go to Chruches today. I want a place that is a big shadowed, because this swell is almost too big for Uppers/Cottons, which is saying something.
It looks like it should pump all weekend. I am actually looking forward to Cottons once it drops a bit. Right now it's almost too big there. I Saw the biggest Cottons sets I have ever seen yesterday."Have you ever seen a monk get wildly fucked by a bunch of teenage girls?" "No" "Then forget the monastery."

Got good Pleasure Point this morning. You know it's good when there aren't any longboards in the water over there. I saw one guy with a longboard get to the water, turn around and leave. Caught a few good ones in front of Jacks house. Got a looong one early in a set and by the time I got back out I realized that I was just about at the Hook. It was so foggy I had no idea how far I went. Anyhow, another good wave came through so I jumped on it and stayed at the Hook for a few more good sized ones and headed to "work". Gotta love these big summer souths.

Ha, I watched you I bet. I watched from first light until around 2 pm on and off. Got a ton of pics. Hell maybe got you riding. Went back and forth between windnsea rockview sewers pleasure point, and pleasure point was just smooth and long waves. Wish I could've done it. Everyone there could surf it seemed, although some people just shot down the line straight without working the face of the wave at all, which seems a shame with such pretty waves. Shrug, looked fun.
Long lasting smooth waves, like 10 second rides on the outer break and 15 on the inner. Look like a lot of fun. It got smaller over the day I think, people were saying 12', I don't know if it was quite that but I don't have a great eye.
Last night the hook looked super and people were riding it hard. Today it looked like a bunch of gapers.
Great vibe, everyone happy and friendly. Pleasure point is so nice. I had so much fun.
Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

Interesting swell. Over riding many of the usual spots. I've heard things like:
Too long a period, too much west, too big for.... And, I don't know where to go when we gets these big souths, 'cause the happen so rarely.
Town has been good. A few select spots, at the right times have been insane up north. But a many frustrating moments, as the swell had its way it the more open water spots. Got to my fav this morning, and it had a little sw bumpple on it. Went out anyway, 'cause I did not notice it when I watched in the dark. The bump mellowed, and I got a hand full of very fun waves. No one out. At least a half hour of being skunked. And the best wave I have had since January. If was a very very good long throaty thing. Now I am off to the mountains to enjoy some sun and wild flowers.
The lineups are going to be thick the next few days. Be wise and be kind.

Thought we'd beat the crowd at Bird Rock this morning and get at least get 30 minutes of surf before everyone showed up. Not. Paddled out in the dark and still had 4-6 guys out within 5 minutes. 20 minutes later at grey light there were 10-15 more including a couple of long boards. Talked with some neighbors, caught a couple and came back in. Way too crowded.

Yep fun weekend. Still trying to get back into shape, so I am not down for any DOH stuff. Friday morning at PB Point was like a Disneyland ride with just these fun head high peelers off the point. Saturday, drove up to Delmar and didn't get out I was so bummed. Swell a tad smaller today, so Delmar was a cake walk and got some fun stuff a little overhead on the sets. I hope this hangs in there for Monday.

Watch out everyone, I hear there are sharks out there.Putting the "core" in corporate, one turn at a time.

Only in SoCal. They all left the central coast due to fog.
Swell should hang in there through tomorrow at chest high or so. And then there will be some small NW later in the week. At least that is how it looks up here.

Bodysurfing is dangerous. If he had a Channel Islands board w/ razor sharp fins he could have fought back.Putting the "core" in corporate, one turn at a time.

Heard that my favorite summer spot was cranking again this morning. And empty except for the reporter.
