The reports always hype up any sizeable swell, it's usally never as big as they forecast but Triple overhead will close out most spots except a few..Unless you have the right equipment and can handle bigger surf, it's best you just watch the show from the cliff..
Well it appears that I have lucked out with the upcoming swell headed for Cali. Trip starts the 2nd and ends the 9th! Thanks for the feedback on some local spots and hopefully all goes well. Probably poke around a bit with the larger swell coming through. If you hear a NY-accent snooping, it be me.
Amazing! perfect surf, people, and weather. Surfed Black's, Swami's, Pipe's, and Sunset Cliffs. Torrey Pines & Scripps Pier to closey. Monday-Thursday was stomach to chest, with some head high sets. Friday morning began building into the overhead range and by noon it was double overhead in most spots. Photos I got but not uploaded. The trip exceeded my initial expectations and my only issue was I had to return to NY. Looking at Panama or Hawaii for March, ever been?
SWAMIS BRO! That place is an amazing longboard wave and shortboard if it is big enough. If you are renting boards, there are tons of surf shops. When I was there, one of the guys out there had rented a brand new Firewire longboard for $20 for the day.
