    Calii forecast

    http://www.swellinfo.com/surf-foreca...bay-california
    Today
    Double to triple overhead high WSW ground swell for the morning drops into the well overhead to double overhead high zone during the afternoon.
    CONDITIONS

    Clean with E winds 15-20mph in the morning shifting ESE 10-15mph in the afternoon.

    You know I always wondered why there is so little action on these forums from people out west relative to east coasters. I think it's because they are too busy surfing. One week straight of overhead to double overhead of surf. Who would bother/have time to be posting on a forum. lol

    I'm taking a vacation next year for sure to somewhere that gets waves. I wish it wasn't so damn expensive to travel though

    Most Californians use surfline or msw... Don't doubt the value of a true gun out there if you wana charge big waves.. I have a few 5'10 s and figured I needed a step up for my trip so I bought a piny 6'6 and it worked great till 3 mile was at solid 15' and I had to paddle over a mile to get into position and then if I wanted a wave I had to take off under the lip... I got the biggest waves of my life but it was alot of work. Stack your cash and go cali has great big waves but it also has a lot of really perfect waves and slab setups.

    Try paddling a bodyboard sometimes. It will give all new meaning to the term difficult(impossible) paddle out lol I need a spot where there's lots of time in between sets or paddling channel with waves like that.

    Bro. You mean try paddling it out the six yards to get it to the end periphery of shorebreak barrels in OC? Ya bro. That's serious paddle length bro. Right. We are all real sorry for you guys - with all those barrells you get and speedbumpish kook actions by the guilty parties. Not to say it doesn't stoke me to the gills to see a sponger enclosed in a perfect shack, at which point I give da braddah firm props bc green room is green room.

    Who was talking about that? I was talking about taking it to actual non shore breaks.

    Isn't it way easier to paddle out on a bodyboard?

    It's MUCH easier to paddle a surfboard. MUCH. No comparison.
    Bodyboard vs shortboard is like shortboard vs SUP when it comes to paddling. Half your body is in the water causing huge drag. That's why it's impossible to paddle without swim fins/"flippers". With the fins on a bodyboard is still like a stone in the water compared to a surfboard. Try paddling a bodyboard out in overhead surf on a punchy beach break that's not a shorepound sometime. Or better yet, try paddling out at deep hole area at matunuck in overhead. I wish it was easier to paddle a bodyboard. My sessions would last longer and I wouldn't feel completely half dead from exaustion. It's hard to even go back to back days for me when I do a really long session first day. Not that young anymore and just the whole body feels beat to hell. Legs/shoulders/back muscles everything. And it's made worse by the fact that you stun your body since swells are rare.

    The other thing you'll notice is catching waves. If you go out at matunuck, you'll get outpaddled for every wave. The surfers on their longboards will come from behind you and paddle into the wave. It's like if everyone was on a sup and you on a shorboard. You have to be close to where the wave is breaking. Matunuck is just a bad wave anyway for bodyboarding. Way Too slow/shallow drop/hard to get into.

    It's funny, because the first time I saw it, my jaw nearly dropped how perfect it looked(hollow, rides go on forever) Until I rode that is.

    I've been on VERY mushy waves that are twice as fast and are great fun. Not matunuck. Matunuck is world class though for longboards, but not a good wave at all for bodyboarding
