    and stories of several "evacuations"?
    Several spots in the Santa Cruz area can leave you stranded up against the cliffs once the tide comes in. The Hook comes to mind.

    Really sorry to hear about Davi. I hate to second guess the guy but I would have accepted the ride on the jet ski with my undying gratitude. Ghost Trees is not the place to let your ego get in the way of rational decison making.

    I finally got some action this evening! Bo. is not the big-wave gnar-charging place of others, but then again I'm not a big-wave gnar-charger. It was a perfect way to get those tropical cobwebs out of my brain and replace them with ice cream headaches.

    Plus, it's kinda fun surfing in the fog where you don't really know what's coming until it's right there. I'll be there (actually, I'm still here) with camera if it's any good tomorrow.
    Putting the "core" in corporate, one turn at a time.

    I'm so bummed I had school and work all day today.

    My boss came into work this afternoon so stoked on today. I guess Pitas was 15-20 feet and super clean as the tide started dropping mid-morning.

    Hopefully there will still be something left for me Friday... I don't care if it rains!

    From what I gathered on the last post, Pitas' size dropped off in the afternoon. Still, I doubt the quality dropped.

    Pura, yes, I live in SB. Moved here about 1.5 years ago (also when I started surfing).

    And on that note I spent much of Wednesday on the sidelines watching. Headed down to the pier to check out Sandspit. Looked gnarly in the AM and not very clean, but rumor had it Kelly was in the water ripping it up. Then I drove down the coast with the wife and baby to watch some Rincon action. Crazy shit in and around the river mouth. Broken boards were everywhere.

    Later in the day we jumped in at Tabletops and ended up down at Leadbeeter for a mellow sunset. Had a good dawn patrol this am and now I can barely lift my arms.

    I finally got my first taste on swell with some punch. Scared shittless and pumped all at the same time. I may actually have to get a step up if the winter continues to deliver.

    Surfed the Con twice today. It was really clean this morning. Still, a little bit of size in the morning, but not like yesterday. I could concentrate more on surfing waves than dodging sets. AM: Plenty of long rides of the Indicator. PM : Size backed off. The pack off the Indicator was getting pretty restless when the sets backed off. I left that area when getting run over by surfers put more fear in me than getting cleaned up during sets the previous two days. I headed down towards the Rivermouth where it starting to get a bit bumpy.

    I didn't feel too bad about shifting spots in the line up when I saw next to me some shaved head guy with a really white board wearing a Quiksilver wetsuit. I didn't feel too bad when the same guy told me a wave that I didn't stick the drop turned out to be a dud when he went on it (he did look back to see me blow it). Yeah, Kelly was throwing airs, 360s, and some big fans. Having him in the line up results in everyone upping their game.

    All told on this swell. I surfed five times at three points and had lots of fun in the process. Myself and my boards made it out in tact. Now, I'm ready for snow. If any of the SB Mags are heading to Mammoth this weekend, let me know.

    I ended up nearby during an early lunch hour for some fun surf. Yeah still plenty of waves but the pucker factor is done. Stoked as it's just the beginning of the best part of the year. I actually stopped by Rincon to have a look around ~130pm as well. Looked pretty fun as well.
    One from Rincon:

    Yesterday morning was really really fun in PV.The big sets were still well overhead and every now and again something around DOH came rolling through. Nice channel, not crowded, great waves, ahhhh. Sooo stoked. No pucker factor either as the enormous bombs were done, but still a bunch of size for some fun!!! Damn good morning!

    Never been to Lunatic Bay, Indicators looked gorgeous but prolly a little too gnar for this kid so it was option #1. Really fun morning. Still stoked by it!!! Perfect size for the Cove as much bigger and it starts to close out across the bay which is what I heard was happening on Wednesday.

    You surfed Indicators much? Some guys were getting good rides, some were getting creamed, at least from what I could see at a distance, but it looked really schweeet.

    I used to when I lived 5 minutes away. These days I'm usually home once a month and as luck would have it, no waves when I'm around.

    I think the launch may be a bit sketch with that much swell...

    I just linked this to another thread but Here you go. Sorry for jonging up the threads but it's worth it.

    IMHO, if image 10 in the Surfline NoCal sequence doesn't win the XXL competition this year there is no justice. Holy crap is that a big scary wave!
