Micro longboard trimmers on the VS Slot. Was crowded for a bit, then not.
Ankle-knee, with crystal clear water and SO MANY rays, along with tons of sizable
fish. Trimming along a wave a 2’ deep water with hundreds of rays swimming below
you is a bit disconcerting.

got out alone early with the tide 2 hi, still got some good ones b4 i got followed\ and split

later i brought the wife to another spot i invented surfing to escape crowds.
some dude and his chick followed me and he was pushing her into waves just like i was . what a coincidence. this spot is a no-mans-land. bald dork followed me earlier but got nothing and left quick. got wife into some nice long rights that were just mushy enough for her

Better yesterday.

Bbetter on 1st of the year.


Agreed. You surf the inner bar at Pacheco at low tide on the 1st and 2nd?

whats with the lemmings following seems a recurring theme hehehe

had a couple surfs, dont remember much but it feels good to get out.

splitting time lately... for wife to surf and time to watch the toddler makes it hard.

what ever little bit we get is great....

I fvcked up this morning.

Should have gone to where the waves were good, but there were a bunch of people out.

Instead, I suffered solo at a spot that was quickly backing off with the increasing tide. cussing

Been getting great surfs up at a beach somewhere in the Ventura/Santa Barabara area. (Not gonna say. its a secret). Found out about it by following some guy down the beach. Saw him catch some waves and then paddled out right next to him, as I always do. Paddled for every wave that came in. If dude was on a wave as I was paddling back out straight toward the peak, no problem, just paddle toward the shoulder ( i hate duck diving). If he's deeper on a wave, I double make sure he got into it by paddling in, popping up and wait for him to call me off. That's how i know for suuure he got the wave.

Took my gf to the very same spot to learn. Stocked!! I'll be back...

Small, inconsistent, and weak early. Got a couple ok waves on the RNF Retro before having to
freeze changing for work. Checked it this afternoon and it jumped to pretty unruly, closed-out conditions
in a hurry.

CODE RED IN NCSD BROS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is to say it barely hit head high this morning. Way bigger yesterday afternoon. I couldn't believe the size difference.

Brought the hpsb and the step-up with me and could have paddled out on the small wave board.

What a fvcking let down.

Got out yesterday at about one. Checked out a reef in north county looked big and closed out. Went to a more protected spot and found a few fun head high+ corners. Friend I went out with couldn't make the paddle out lol, so went in pretty quick and headed back to work. Happy to have found a window!

Nothing great, but got a handful of overhead lefts and a right early, once the fog cleared and there
was any visibility. Time Machine was a good call, although I could've been on any number of boards.
As jkb said, the difference in size from yesterday evening and this morning was large, although it
was mostly out of control yesterday and much cleaner today.
