    Sorry to hear that.

    Newport has been good, but I've been out of the water since Thursday. I pulled a rib cage muscle in my side boxing. It's recovering, no big deal, I think I might be able to swing a dawn patrol session tomorrow morning.

    This spot rarely breaks, scratched into a couple set waves that made up for the earlier close outs. Sitting at the beach now and canít see the waves through the fog.

    Fuck, old man. Get you fixed up. Is it rotator cuff? That one's a bitch.

    Just got back from Nica on Monday. Charter flight to the tune of $2,500, but got to see my family for the first time in six months. So, so good. Tamarindo, Maderas, body surfing at Marsella with the crocs. Stopped in Mexico City for some outstanding food on the way back. Nice to have some normalcy in life.

    OTT, Get that shoulder fixed up so we can hit some bigger stuff this winter.

    I love this shot! Rich with anticipation. It looks like it's going to line up nicely. I love the moment when you have caught it, are about to pop up, and you can see it line up.

    Today was pretty nuts north of the HB pier. I was in the water from around 730 to 1000. It was head high, maybe a foot overhead, with great shape and clean. With a pump you could make the inside section. The current was crazy, I ended up getting in around tower 10, then getting out around tower 18 and walking back twice. The current and the plethora of peaks spread the crowd out well. I'm pretty spent now and I've got lots of work to do today. I don't drink coffee much but I'm going to have to grab an iced espresso. The water is around 68. I was able to trunk it, although it was a bit cold when I got in this morning. I'm hoping this swell continues to deliver. It was still super clean when I got out at 10, I wish I could have stayed longer. I can't complain though, when you can surf overhead clean waves in warm water until 10 am on a Thursday you are pretty damn lucky.

    BS720,

    I'm sorry you are having to deal with this, but glad you got to see your family. There are things you can't put a price on.

    Thanks! I got lucky as I was wrestling into my wet wetsuit watching this point peel for the first time...I agree, I like photos that elicit a feeling and I can almost feel the drop looking at this. Scored some memorable rides and fast highlines to open faces, sooo goood.

    And for Ott, I had a Bankhart repair on my left shoulder 30 years ago. It started to bother me a couple years ago so I doubled down on PT and training. Don't skimp on resistance/weight training, especially for us old(er) dudes...Good luck!

    Everything nor-cal is firing right now. Had a few head high screamers at a protected spot this AM that reminded me how much I love fall in California! Soon enough the sandbars at OB will get forced into a semblance of order and the real fun can begin.

    Yup. Started firing a day or two after the shoulder popped. Go get after it. I'll be watching this winter. BS, it is Bankart reaper and filling in a little divot on the humorous. When it lines up just right, it can slip out like a key working lock. I'll be out of the sling before Thanksgiving, but won't be back in the water until April. So this fall/winter is toast. At least I'll be able to ski come mid winter and start light trail riding around that time as well. I predict this surf is going to go non-stop until it snows. Conditions have been pretty sweet around here.

    The last three days have been pretty nuts down here.

    I have been surfing south of the HB pier. Head high, maybe a foot overhead and line up. Some punch, but I've been going at high tide so not too heavy. Maybe the best three days I have had this summer. The current is crazy, no point in even fighting it, I just get when I get close to the pier and walk south. You could make the inside section with just a bit of a Huntington hop. The crowd was actually pretty light, the current made it tough to stay in one place.

    At one point on Saturday my buddy and I had our own peak around 50 yards south of the pier. That just does not happen on a head high day on a Saturday with warm water.

    I only got about 8 waves today in about an hour and a half of water time. That was due to lots of duck diving getting back out. It was still worth it though, when each wave is 100 yards and fun I will take quality over quantity.

    It was a great last bunch of days. Took Mini Comish to the Beach Casa for Wednesday - Friday and then got the whole Fam to come down for Sunday and Monday. Super glassy all day Thursday - Sunday if I have my days straight. It starts to blur. Pretty cool when you are surfing your own peak with just your neighbor, 77yr old dad, wife, and 12yr old grom! We are super lucky. Couple hundred foot rides down the line on peaky, albeit soft waves. Too soft for the grom who was complaining, but the wife and old man loved it and I'm not complaining when I can go down the line for a while rather than the standard shortnoshouldercloseout.

    Nope, that would be cool though... Between Dana Point and San Clemente. A few doors down from the Hoffman Brothers (old skool big wave guys, see Riding Giants) and where Hobie created everything before he left CA.

    Here is a little article on our neighbors. https://www.sanclementetimes.com/som...st-go-surfing/
