I was out yesterday morning second one in the water at this particular spot that can get damn Kooky in the summer. Uncrowded, not great, but this lady, paddles right out to me. I mean there is a whole wide open beach of beach break, and not good at that. She was nice enough and chatty. Actually she was very nice, I'd say mid-40s, and just relearning how to surf. So I was trying to give her advice and called her into a wave and paddled for it. The wave overtook her and she pearled, board in the air. She came up and lost the sun glasses she was wearing. I think she said they were $400 glasses, titanium frame... I kind of felt bad for calling her into a wave, then I remembered, no one should wear $400 in the line up. Summer is here, I guess we have to deal.

Wow,Thats really not that bright.
I got in everyday by 6:30 or so. Wasn't too bad - saw a lot of people I havent seen since September - good guys - just not year round surfers. After 10:00 when the lifeguards came on they really didnt inforce the boundries of the surfing beaches which was good and it spread everyone out a bit. I guess because there wasnt a ton of swimmers in. The best was these punk a$$ agro kids who I never saw before with all new high end stuff try to rip into some local kids over something probally stupid. When it got to the beach the locals wanted to finish it but the parents of the a-holes dialed 911 on their cell phones got their kids and left. They were driving a MB SUV that was parked in a handicap spot and it sure didn't look like any of them had any type of disability (probally the tag was for a grand parent or something who wasnt even with them).
Not exactly surfing a top spot this time of year, but this morning was nice. The entire length of the beach all to myself from 8 till about 9:30, then me and a friend trading off waves. The only downside about the beach is there are no jetties so you kinda have to wait for the right set to come in. That said, there was some fun ones rolling in every now and again and just not one on the water till the tide dropped out. I'll take a little a little smaller with less hassle any day of the week.
Just today this guy was paddling for every wave within a 200 yard stretch. I paddle maybe 20-30 yards away to be by myself, and the SUPer sees a wave coming in my direction, and he paddles for it from where ever he's at, then afterwards acts like it's all good.
Take the time to learn the rules. I was even nice enough to pretend I never noticed the 10 times or so that he fell off his board.
i didnt even bother paddling out this weekend... just too many people. i actually checked the surf cams to see if it was even worth laying out on the beach. short answer: hell nah. i could barely see sand
three more months....
this weekend though
dont know what everyones complaining about with so many babes around.. and knee thigh waves arent worth getting upset over. sizable swell keeps beginners out of the water
