I was staying about at Judah and La Playa. That must be the biggest beach I've ever seen. Yesterday it was raining but I didn't care. Rode my bike for a couple of hours in the park, went to Japanese garden, then rode along the beach for a few miles, completely shivering and soaked through. Could barely see the water through the rain across that huge expanse of sand, but it's the nearest I'll get to the Pacific for several months. Miss it already.
I think I might like San Francisco better than any other city. So fine.
I'll be back. San Diego next Mayish to see my mom.Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

^^^ Enjoy your winter. If you are still around in the morning, check out the ocean. We should be seeing some 10@17 around sunrise. OB will have some big sets. Fort Point could be showing as well. I'd even imagine Mavs will be moving a bit.
Buoy 89 (tillamock) is 21@16, 59 (CA) is 15@15. Wednesday should be fun.

I'm in Cupertino, paying my respects to Steve Jobs and visiting a friend. Off to Tahoe shortly. Enjoy the waves.Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

View from my house after a nice surf yesterday. This swell snuck under the radar; not in the forecasts, didn't show up in the swell models, no other surfers out (this is in our fair capital city), but if you'd bothered to check the charts 3 days ago....

^^^^ that looks fun.
Had a window at sunset and got up to 3mile. Found a few long waves. But I'd be cheating if I called it DOH. Still plenty OH and fun having to paddle back out several hundred yards after two waves. Have another window in the morning and hope to be climbing down some cliffs and tucking under a few ledges.

That wave looks tasty island bay
Nice SheRa, I'll try to order up some waves to coincide with your trip to SD. If ya don't mind, can u order some snow in CO around the New Year? I'll be visiting the inlaws and hopefully poaching some snow around that time
Work messed with my surf schedule today. Sheet glass all day. Daddy duty after work so no sunset session, so I decided to bring my daughter down to the beach since it was still around 80 degrees around 5pm.
I drooled the entire time, Sunny, 80 degrees, chest to head high glassy low tide A-frames at the beachy. It looked really fun, oh well maybe tomorrow

More walled up today, not much leftovers to cross things up like it was yesterday. Of course I have more time to surf on the day it's walled

Semi OT: Im flying out to San Fran for the weekend and will probably be making the trip down to Santa Cruz Saturday or Sunday. I was wondering if my 3/2 will be enough for the current water/air temps? Looks like air will be around 70 and water in the mid 50's so I think I should be OK? I have some booties and gloves I could bring as well if necessary. Also, any suggestions on a shop with a good selection of rental boards?

3/2 should work in town. Maybe even up north. It has been warm.
Don't know about rentals, but Rip Curl on Mission has a big Rentals sign out front.

^^I have been waiting for my winter suits to arrive, but it was in the 80's today. I took my 3/2 Matuse out today at OB, and I was fine for four hours. Very few places around here/SC will be colder as far as water goes. Good call getting out of the city. The Nike women's marathon is this weekend, so OB will be a zoo."Yo!! Brentley! Ya wanna get faded before work?"

Thanks SheRa, I'll be in the winter park area so probably hit a few laps on berthoud while we're there. Appreciate the offer though!

Aaaaah it sucks to be older and not in tip top shape. Took the wife to a seminar at La Jolla High, drove down to Wind and Sea and it was going OFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!
Over head sets, guys getting a little covered up, seriously what I would pay big money to fly to to surf with no one else out.
Bad news for me, was there were 20+ guys out there on short boards that would have ate my lunch if I had paddled out on my 8'6". Had to be satisfied with a few chest high ones at Delmar. FML.

Surf the past few days has been fun. The Lane has been pretty good since the NW arrived on Wednesday. Thursday afternoon looked real fun and real crowded. Lots of collisions. Too many. Too many douchebag moves going on. The end result is that plenty of waves went wasted because people can't seem to communicate. Still plenty of good surfing and a few good waves ridden. Got a few good pics. Teaser.

damn i miss summer already. summer always seems so much more consistent with more favorable winds.
went out today in typical fall/winter gale force winds and typical crowds due to locals coming out of the woodwork from avoiding summer fun. man do they miss out. nows the time of year for long stretches of flatness with a bit of greatness thrown in here and there.
thank god for skiing.

On the other coast, this is the prime season, with the north waking up, and the south trying to send out one last swell. Still, it looks like we have a small week ahead. Time to work on processing pics and getting them posted.
