    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
    thats actually really hilarious! whos our in house (SI house) west coast locals anyway? thought it was all east coast trash on here.

    Does anyone have a site showing this whole storm's track and reach? I'm in the Pacific NW as of a couple days from now and looking to see if this is stretching up there.

    Can you imagine the hype that would occur on the east coast with a swell like that? You hardly see anything on the internet for this. lol I don't think we've EVER in history had 10 days + of double overhead and then overhead in a row.

    I would get fired from my job, my girl would leave me, and my dog would run away and find an owner that didn't neglect him if we got that kind of run of surf. Seriously contemplating a move out west in the next 5 years. This Atlantic is a frustrating broad sometimes.

    looks like the PNW is getting hammered today, keep your eye on it.

    Its California BTW.

    Here's what the storm looked like


    Here's pics from it http://www.surfingmagazine.com/monda...os/storm-surf/

    Usually when we get winter storms like this it is unsurfable the whole time due to wind but Friday and Sunday was definitely doable and certain spots on Saturday, which was the biggest day of storm and waves, were doable then. Our swells usually come from farther away, when everything is this close its a little too raw.

    This is just a standard winter storm that we need more of. It just hasn't happened in a few years

    Awesome image. Oh please you cali people are probably afraid to go in the ocean when it's raining out! LOL I've never in my life seen people freak out like in cali. They actually have something called may gray and june gloom. It's actually cloudy...god forbid! I'd want the clouds after all that eye numbing cancer causing non stop sun for 9 months of they year.

    Got a question for you. When you surf in southern CA in summer/fall/winter is it usually cloudy in the morning due to fog/marine layer? What time does it get sunny by?

    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.
