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.

Depends how you are with cold water. From the Atlantic, I would say 4/3 and booties hood if you want. Enjoy the nicest time of year.

Gloves no, hood and booties maybe depending on your tolerance. I've been wearing a 4/3 no hood/no booties and been fine but I tend to run a little warm. Also depends how long you want to be in the water.

As Mr. Heelnipstr said, you guys have good timing... it's been a pretty awful fall but waves looking fun for the next week or so.

Would love to surf if everyone gets together and happy to lend a bigger board if the swell actually materializes...


All I need is some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine...

VaB - I don't think Wise does rentals. How early can you surf? You got a way to get around? Thursday won't be "too big"...besides there is a certain perverse thrill of getting outside during a rising swell. Wait a day, and you'll miss that, but maybe avoid those clean-up sets.

Racer1 - I will be able to surf in Thurs and Fri mornings but have to leave for work too soon. Saturday I have more options. So for those days, I am in the water at 6 AM, out by 7:45-ish.

Due to craptastic summer and more crap-like October, my game is only starting to be where it should have been at end of September. Past few days of smoke and small conditions and large crowds not helping.

Good thinking. Surf Fuerte, from The Canaries, almost died last year from the cold.
Surf was fun just now. Oily glass sandbars firing. Nice thump to them.

Yeah, our surf excursion didn't go that well...I get back to shore to see him doing the frozen dance and actually felt bad for him.

It won't be that big.

Yes. Lets shred!

Went to college in LA, but I don't think I ever surfed north of Rincon, maybe Morrow one time, but I don't remember it being that cold. Looking forward to it!
