    I lost the vid of this, but he made it over this one no problem and the one right behind it was a monster and he had to dive off. A bunch of guys took that one on the head. Just nuts. Notice his leash is tied to his waist!

    Edit, no I think he dove off for this one. I don't think he made it.

    These big wave guys are another culture. Not surprised it was a German pro surfer.

    And he fades it a bit. I was going to say, yeah, but hey getting towed in, and all, but holy Jesus

    A buddy of mine was involved with the rescue. He is the harbormaster up there. Gets busy when there is swell.

    Nice typo from the Post - "Navare"

    Wild that they were both going off on the same day.

    Sunday was fun at the HB pier, strong off-shores. Powder Thursday and Friday, windbuff on Saturday at Mammoth, then back home for chest high and off-shore in Orange County. A fun weekend. It makes me feel lucky to live here.

    Even easier to do em both if you're hitting Summit or Bear.

    OB was the best I've seen it all week today. I didn't plan to surf for 7 hours, but it happened. Surfed about 2.5 hours by myself, then the wind turned on and we had whitecaps. Paddled in immediately, and ran into an old roommate. I figured, fuck, we haven't surfed together in years, so I went back out. In the time to walk back to the car, I shit you not, the wind died again. Eventually, it glassed completely, and everyone had left when I did when the wind turned on. Maybe 10 people we could see. Pulled into a head high left, and to my surprise, the lip wrapped around me. I was sitting there looking up at the lip, not paying attention to the exit, but exit I did. Went back home to rehydrate and eat, but buddy got off work and wanted to go out again. Got out of the water under a bright starlit sky. My upper body is gonna be fucked tomorrow.

    ^^^^^You surf under head high waves??! I thought that was for kooks.

    Finally back in the water. Two days now, and I remember how much I love being in the water. Will probably head back out today. Only on the 64 Rick, out at 1st and 2nd Pleasures. Perfect rehab getting the ROM back into the joint.

    Game changer. No longer finding time for hikes or hoping for snow. I can surf again.

    Chest high and okay this weekend at hb pier. Junk this morning. Lots of surfable days this winter, but not much greatness.

    This whole winter on Oahu has been pretty good. I was fortunate enough to move next to a world class break that is 4 miles from my house to the parking lot. We're about to get another swell this week. I've been riding a SUP board lately at offshore reef breaks. It's pretty fun. Used to knock it but now I love it. You can access breaks that are otherwise near impossible to get to. I'm not a huge fan of the sup clowns that paddle into a crowd.

    Haven't got as much skiing in this winter as I would like but I guess I can't have it all.

    Headed down to Point Loma to visit the folks since it appears it will not snow again this winter (jk I hope). Conditions have been good the last two evenings, but not much in the way of any swell showing.

    The cliffs glassed off last night and was clean but small. Took this at North Garbage. Awesome sunset and clouds.

    This was tonight at the OB pier. Not a single person out. Once again everything lined up, glass off, bitchen sunset, but zero swell in the water. No good rumors at this time either.

    Sunset Cliffs, Wednesday evening. Clean but small surf again. This guy was probably getting as many waves as anyone. If you zoom in, he's riding a Sup with a foil setup. Once he got going he could keep going when there was pretty much no wave to be ridden and linked some big flat sections together. Interesting set up and he seemed to be making the best of what little surf there is.

    Just getting back from Tobago, had a few really nice days of uncrowded waves as the swell built each day. On the last day it got big enough that I didn't even paddle out, bigger than this kook is comfortable with and all the locals were out.

    Yo, OTT, what's the damage for the ticket for surfing the harbor?

    Anyone else get some today...?

    Dunno. Never been busted.

    I once heard it was $230, but no idea what the law actually states.

    And I think it is only illegal is you surf into the harbor proper. As in between the two jetties.

    The wave that breaks off the West Jetty can wrap into the harbor, but It just as often breaks outside the mouth (as if drawing a straight line between East and West Jetty southern most points, because the east Jetty does not extend as far out.

    Occasionally a wave forms off the beach side of the east Jetty. That is totally legal. As is the murph bar, when it shows.

    Whole bunch of beach work going on down there. Heavy machinery and boulders. Looks like some sore of break water work along the road to twin lakes.

    Yesterday, it stayed offshore at OB all day. It was fun, but cold as fuck. Last night, checked Surfline just before bed and they changed the forecast to orange, or "Good". I told my buddy, watch, Sacramento and everyone in between will be here tomorrow. It was offshore through the morning, shifting wind all noon and early evening. Mostly shoulder to a few feet overhead on the big sets. All the parking lots stuffed, barely parking on Great Highway. The nice thing has been with the tide swings, there's enough water moving around, you can't just sit there and wait for a set to come to you.

    OTT, I heard they take your board if they catch you at the harbor. I walked out the other day when it was just starting to break. Harbor Patrol was zipping back and forth in and out of the entrance, giving me the stinkeye just for looking. I'm guessing you have to sit at Murph Bar, then slide out for a few right as the sun sets.
