    Does anyone else notice a decrease in "fair weather surfers/kooks" at their breaks when a "big game " is on?

    no complaints here mind you. That was my kinda Sunday.

    Wish I had pics to share.
    that's why we live here, no?

    Sunday afternoon was more fun than Wednesday for me. Wednesday morning was challenging, big, had to fight to get out, major drift, had to be in the right spot to get out alive. Sunday was just easy, glassy, chunky fun.

    just south of the Tiki Bar, Sunday afternoon. there was maybe half a dozen people out between there and Pelican Watch. i live a few blocks away from there and always prefer to get to the beach by bicycle, whenever possible. that area holds up under a rising tide pretty well, but if the tide had been any higher, i would have been forced to head up to the North End. but from there i can see almost up to the Mariott and as far south as the Pipe, and no, there were not many people in the water.

    I also was pumped on yesterday. I went out around 3 and was surprised by how good it was. I needed it after being stuck at work all day on Wednesday watching the cams. No barrels yesterday but it was super ripable and definitely a fun session. One of these days we will have to have a Swellinfo paddle out down here haha

    Good for you dude, my best and favorite sessions have happened when I was all alone, nobody in my way, just me and the waves and real estate for miles, if it's overcast even better, dark gloomy and cold sign me up, it just makes for a eerie vibe and I dig that, especially when the waves are good

    I'm down, but I fear it will be like herding cats getting more than 4 of us in the same spot at any time. I'm interested to see who I've shared the lineup with in the past without knowing they too are SI junkies.

    Rob, I'm almost certain I have at some point seen you, dl, hanna and possibly bbg in the water. You can't miss me, according to Chuck I look like Paula Deen.....

    Yeah that's true, plus I don't want to be those dudes that show up 10 deep to a spot and all paddle out at once. I bet we have shared the lineup at some point, I will be on the lookout for Paula Deen on a Pier Pony haha.

    We should all form a gang that rolls deep kicking people off the peaks and waxing their car windows. Razor blade fins, barbwire leashes and ninja star fin keys would all be standard issue. Really tough stuff.

    I'm going to start asking people in the lineup about butter until I find Erock.

    Wednesday was awesome. South facing beaches were pretty fun but my boys had pictures of grinding right bowls with them deep inside sweeping up the beach on CB. That swell angle must have made for some really makeable dry barrels at the lower tide early. Seemed to have a little cross up SE swell mixed in to the south? Slight hump on the lines which made it even better. Great conditions for sure but I wished I had a hat!
