    Looks like a contest going on at steamers. Guys a rippin' it.
    There was a contest in fact. I was up the coast a bit on the 29th, and a buddy paddled out saying he had thought the ocean would be too messy up north and stopped at the Lane and said, "a million guys out and six paddling for every wave". The contest was the 30th/31st and I guess it started busy on the 28th.

    Had to get work done today. Missed some solid overhead surf, but it was a bit wonky and the shoulder does not love wonky. Tomorrow should drop to about head high plus. And clean up. No wind out thee right now.

    Been a ton of surf and good amount of weather this fall.

    As for calf cramps, lots of water and keeping the session within reason. The cold is work. 40F is nippy.

    Smaller today. Head high to a bit overhead. Fun being back out on the 6'0" again. Tho, today's wave and full tide, perhaps a fuller volume would have been nice. Still fun being out on it. Trying decide between the bike and the surf tomorrow. High morning tides during my window make me lean toward the bike. But damn surfing feels good.

    Nice!!!

    Glad you got some of that. The cameras were nuts that day.

    I should be able to get a window in tomorrow afternoon. I've been pretty swamped, and the tide has been so high that my usual windows have not bee working. Fingers crossed the wind stays good tomorrow afternoon.

    ^^^^ high tide here as well. I have a window most days from 8:30-11. Not helpful when the tide is about 5' the entire time and the wind is effecting things up the coast. Dirt has been real nice tho. Surprisingly active weather for October. Hoping for one big storm and snowfall and then high pressure and offshores for November.

    That high tide was crushing me lately. I was pretty swamped anyway, but it was just wrong for me.

    Saturday (yesterday) ended up being one of those days where you just get lucky. I waited until after the tide started to drop, I got in the water around 1245, and hoped the wind would hold off. It did. I surfed 32nd street in Newport. It was clean, shoulder-heard high, and really fun. And there were only 4-5 people at first and second base off the jetty. To get a Newport jetty that good in the middle of the day with that many people in the water on a Saturday, it just does not happen. The vibes were good in the water, which is usually NOT the case close to the jetty, and it was just a blast. I kept wondering if something was up, 32nd street is right there in the middle of one of the most intense surf zones anywhere, and here is was head high, clean and fun with only a few guys in the water. It was far from perfect, some of them were not really lining up, but when you are getting 80-100 yard head high lefts without a hassle you really can't complain.

    The tide is just late enough tomorrow that I might be able to get in a dawn patrol session. I'm doing a bit of work right now to have that flexibility.

    I got out and crushed the high tide today. Not an epic day by any means but head high and plus on the sets. Lots of different swells in the water but the 7@12 seemed to be making the biggest, and the ones that slipped through the outside into the inside were standing up nicely. Even a solid barrel today, but by then I was tired and grabbed it, uh, prone. Nice view from inside there. Glad I went out. From the cliff it looked less than stellar, but the good ones were quite nice and ripped well through the inside with a nice steep bowl for three or four cranks. Surfing is fun.

    Wow!!!

    I wish. I got in a session in Newport this morning. I actually surfed 40th street, which is blackballed from May 1 to Nov 1. The tide was a bit high, but there were still some fun lefts off the jetty. It was just me and one bodyboarder, so it's always nice to get a jetty uncrowded.

    Definitely not as good as that though, enjoy it.

    That is the great thing about SC. Always options. I've never been there when there was not a wave. Maybe not epic, but lully waist/chest sets come thru. And the dirt is always there. I guess the only thing that can slow SC down is a rainstorm.

    Yeah it rained Tuesday. Dirt is in good shape in most spots as of today. We do certainly have options and less than 4 hours away, pretty damn good skiing

    Past two days were pretty fun in the water. Largish westerly mid period swell on Wednesday was pushing into the type II fun range at times, but otherwise was amazing oil glass in flat light with juts me, my buddy and maybe 4 or 6 others; hard to tell as we were never all together. Today was sunny and a bit smaller and tamer, but still over head on the sets and throwing on the ledge with more NW and a bit more period. Can't wait to see what happens tomorrow.

    Shoulder to head high, clean, and fun this morning north of HB pier.

    Luckily I was able to go a bit later, around 9 am. The early high tide is still pretty nuts, although at least the low is not 3 feet anymore.

    I should be able to hit up the same window tomorrow.

    Had a window this evening and got out on the incoming tide. Small swell combing pop nicely on the reef. A bit of WNW at 12s and a bit of SW at 15s made for some fast, punchy, down the line head high waves. Super fun. Will try again in the morning on a ruler out going tide. Doubt it will be the same, but thinking it might be fun.

    Spent last week in OC and N San Diego with my ski surf partners. First time at Trestles and we scored 1-2’ OH. Paddled out at Cottons, main peak is too congested for this mountain kook. Picked off a left and right set wave that lived up to the expectations. Swell dropped a bit and we moved south.
    Down to Cardiff and Carlsbad for a few days of decent beach break that was fun and glassy. Reefs were working and busy. Probably my favorite zone in SoCal. Dropped into Bing and almost pulled the trigger on a new board (Cypress, anyone?)
    Headed to MX for the next 10 days to Punta Mita, ready for some warm water family surf. Fall surf trip is a little shorter this year but stoked for some water time before winter sets in

    Trestles keeps delivering. This weekend was so fun. Light winds all day, combo swell staying lively, warm sunny days. It was good all....day....long......

    Today had some coastal eddy marine layer and a bit less swell, but still delivered. I got thrown pretty good, it's been awhile since I kooked that hard. Good to get humbled, especially surfing around a crowd that is as skilled as the trestles lineup.

    Jealous on the Trestles!! Stoked for you guys!!

    I've been too busy lately to get down there. HB has been delivering, but I really love the Cottons zone.

    Lee, that is a GREAT shot! You timed your trip well. It's like skiing, I'm at Mammoth about half the weekends, which I don't have to plan, but whenever I plan a trip to Utah or somewhere I always worry that a storm will hit Mammoth but miss where I'm going. You definitely hit California at a good time.

    Punta Mita......I really love that area. When we were there the swell was pretty weak, although it was surfable. We got a few fun sessions in, but I would love to hit up that zone in solid swell. There is a right point near the St. Regis that would be absolutely nuts, but we only got it waist high. It was still fun on a big board.

    There are some lefts about an hour or so north of Sayulita that I really want to hit up someday. One of the guys at WildMex told me that if I came back and there was swell we could do a day trip up there.

    Have fun. I really need to go back to the zone with some swell.

    “Shoulda been here yesterday”
    We had 3 days of fading swell at La Lancha. My bro had 6’ barrels at Stinkys just before we arrived.
    At least the waters warm and I’m not too worried about sharks.

    I’m liking the Punta Mita zone, doing some hiking and swimming since the waves went away. Great family trip

    ^^^Beautiful, if a touch smaller than desired

    I went up to HB today, first time since I was a kid. I've never surfed the zone, and today definitely wasn't the day with minimal swell and plenty onshores.

    Hanging out at Tower 20 at Bolsa Chica, things looked promising to the South, toward the pier. Is this where I'd want to be surfing, on a better day? The whole parking setup at Bolsa Chica was really chill. I imagine it's a mess closer to the pier?
