Marginal rising tide 2 ft. (mainland scale) crumblers at #2 local reef. Not sure I would've paddled out if I wasn't meeting a buddy to let him try a couple boards from the Oeste "demo fleet". Not much open face or shoulder to work with out there. Still, water's warm and only a few others out, so snagged a bunch of lil ones with sone wiggles on the tomo x-wing as quad.

in da hood next to paradise
fun little inconsistent wedges with 100 of my favorite WFH'ers. first 45 mins couldnt put it together. then got a nugget right that allowed for 2 fs snaps and it turned on. got one really good feeling bs roundy that the pack saw. stocked on that one given that i am a middle aged kook flapping on a shortboar. gb #3 ftw! 2-1/4" seems to be the magic rail on that one.

double over ankle in the south bay and packed to the gills. took out the spegg, couple forced little right runners before I called it a wash. surfing in LA is really starting to suxk with the influx of new people.
I thought there was a net decrease of population in LA, especially since March?

I went down to MB at Rosecrans and watched for a bit and decided fvvk it, better off working.

FWIW, yesterday and today were the least crowded I've seen it in 6 months. Maybe the kook summer won't be endless?...
if its a weekend, 2 foot and you can park in front of it. forget it. itll be an epic shitshow from dark to dark.

but yeah. its slowed down off days off hours at off spots
