Ankle to knee high at my local. Otherwise good conditions.

Southern Tip, Norcal
Calm raw disorganized overhead swell. No wind.

The old-timer local turned sweeper broke his leash while I was walking out. Looked like he was caught in a rip while trying to dog-paddle in from the outer bar. The guy talks so much sht... but he does go out when it is very big. Grab his board, broken shoelace for leash loop,:applause2: and paddle it while I drag mine behind me. 20 minutes getting washed back in and out again, while he keeps trying to get in. Finally, get to him and I shove it to him before I get clean-up. He, of course, missed it and it gets washed in but he is in far enough to body surf.

Swamped disorganized waves, 1 right drop and 1 left drop. After 30 minutes South wind comes up strong and Victory At Sea. I try to take one last in and get pitched into another guy and we get tangled up.

Done

Why’s this in the politic forum?

The inlet cam looked decent after 3:00. That was the only cam I saw in the state that looked worth it. At noon when we were thinking of driving up there it still looked like garbage.
I bet it was good, over driving to surf, surf my little stretch no matter how bad it is.

Thought about taking a drive to the only spot around that might have been a bit manageable but with all the rain and rapid snowmelt I'm really not interested in what's flowing out of that river right now

Walked the dog down to the beach in herbrosa today. It was as calm and windless as I’ve ever seen the pacific.

Cold and windy in the morning but suddenly switched to really nice and warm mid-day, just in time for a tide push and some chest high combo swell corners. And I only wore a 2mm wetsuit.

Stocked.
