It's solid DOH at the Point in Ventura. I watched two sets roll in before work and not one person caught a wave. There were some pretty brutal beat downs and a couple of tombstoning boards in the mix. There was so much water moving around that anybody with a board under 7' just got dragged down towards the pier and had to do the "walk of shame" back up to the top. drowning

Lowers into Middles looks positively dreamy on the cams. Hardly anyone out. C-Street looks drowny.

Surfed a nearby point (just got out). Same size. Little lumpy. Fun.

Knice Duffy!!!

I stopped by again at lunch and the swell's picking up. Much less people in the water. Lifeguards in pwc's and a boat are keeping an eye on things. Also parked at the top of the dirt lot as well as South side of the pier. I was lucky enough to catch a great dolphin show for about 5 minutes. Lots of leaping and frolicking on the sets. The harbour area is sure gonna be nasty after those guano covered rocks get washed off. vomit

Saw some SD reefs that were pretty much already washed out at 1:30PM. Lifeguards had skis running and there were only a handful of guys out. Didn't see a single wave ridden in he 4 sets I saw break. Typical.

May look at a couple of the "spots" in the morning to see how they're breaking. I tweaked my knee Sunday so I am out for at least a couple more days. Otherwise I would be so on it.... not roflmao

Duffy iI was maxing at 10. Saw coffin get a bomb. Wind came up at 1. Tons of pros current and past. Lots of cameras, probably be featured tomorrow. Wow. 14.8' 17 sec from 290. I think parsons got the largest wave I saw.

I'm calling it 8 with 10' sets. Once every 5 years that big and clean. Easy 3x oh on bomb sets.

I wasnít at that point. A different one. But yeah, it was big.

Saw a couple guys suit up (one dude with a 8 foot+ gun) stare at it for a bit and as I walked passed them with a twin fin fish under my arm, laughing maniacally at a big set cleaning up the few who were out, they both got back in their car and left.

And it was so good.

BTW, 3x overhead is more than 10 feet. Can we stop with the bullshit macho understating of wave sizes already?

If I got approval from the city for a 8 foot wall and built a wall that was triple over head you think I could just tell them itís ďHawaiian scaleĒ?

Tower 13
So weird. It was 4.5 at 13 this morning which should have made my beachbreak out of control but it was chest to shoulder high with occasional overhead sets. Saw some outer wind developing but it was actually pretty clean.

there were a couple cleanup sets that mowed people down - one guy had a broken board (CI), but yeah a bit slow, but overall pretty fun where I'm at - was worried about the same thing

Definite drop in swell but still really fun and super clean conditions this morning with a light crowd...
