Got out there today, took off work, by @8:30 the first 75 minutes or so were really fun thigh high with sets of waist rolling in for the patient surfers. It was s nice surprise as originally was supposed to be about one foot waves. You could see the deep dark clouds of the almost tropicsl depression off shore. Wind picked up, got pretty choppy , but early was a nice treat.
It's not gonna happen, it's not gonna happen, it's not gonna happen. That said I am hungry and thankfully I where a small pizza with extra cheese as a hat so I'm not that concerned if I'm wrong. Which I'm not.
