Wise surf shop might have rentals

Or there is away co

Water in mid 50's

North end of the beach is mellower, it gets bigger the farther south you go

Good times

As retodd said north end is usually smaller, and a fun wave. Also dont discount the bigger day as you might get the novelty of surfing under the bridge.

Hey, I'll also be in SF Thurs-Tues. Wasn't planning on surfing, but forecast looks good. Awayco has a 6'4 ghost. Now I gotta find a wetsuit.

I'm kind of surprised awayco doesn't have wetsuits too. Remember, they have 2 shops in SF. One normal board HP shop and one Fish/retro shop.

Yeah, makes sense.

Need to find one so I can cross OB off my bucket list.

The surf has been small but kinda fun. It has been really crowded w/ kooks and long boarders being 90% of it. Air is really smokey and I get a lung burning sensation, supposed to stay bad all week.
Water recently got cold. a good 4/3 or more is advised. Haven't had much of a Fall season yet and I don't expect a solid swell this week.

You can rent from Aqua Surf, many do. I don't know what you are looking for but I have old boards you can borrow. Doof has bigger boards and surfs early morning but I don't think this swell is calling for that(bigger board and early morning).
I usually go out mid morning if you or anyone wants to join you are welcome.

Seconding that the air quality is no joke. Not enough to keep me out of the water if it's good, but you'll feel it after a couple hours.

Aqua rents wetsuits?

I kinda want to surf, as every time I've been in the last few years it's been blown to shit.
Doof / Heel, lets shred! Janitor too.

They used too. I would be surprised if they stopped. They are right up the street from me. Highly likely it will be stronge off shore. Swell? Sand bars? Tide? Ready for some good surf, summer sucked and fall is not offering much.

4/3 or more? Are you guys wearing hoods? I was going to bring a 4/3/booties and maybe gloves but doubt it. Should I bring a hooded 4/3?

Thanks everyone for info on board rentals, i appreciate it.

Also, appreciate offers to surf but my mornings will be tied with work and up I will be with my wife so I'm not sure what window for surf I will have. I do appreciate the hospitality.
