i'm 45 min from the beach at work. it's way far. regardless, i'm up around 6:15 and i'd bet if you're suited, at the the beach by 6 you'd definitely be good. prob means no shower before work (who cares)

I work 2nd shift from 12noon- 8:30 Pm so If I dont have to put the kids on the bus in the Am I try to get a quick Dp session in before I have to leave for work I have a 45 min drive and I gota add the quick stop home on my way in to work to rinse off. I really depend on weekend wave this time of year

I was up at 5:50 this morning and it's light enough out to be in the water by 6. I watched the waves from 6:40 until 7 and it looked good (clean but cold). Could def. get at least a 45 minute session in before work.
I'm going to try to get as much as I can done the night before. Like having everything in the car (board, towel, work clothes, etc.) That way I just get up, brush my teeth, put on my suit, grab my keys and go.
i will try this tomorrow morning as well. i think the cold air/water will do more for waking me up than a shower and coffee... it's just a matter of getting myself down there.
I got a solid 45 minutes sesh in last night from 4:30 to 5:20ish. It was choppy but there were some good ones coming through.

Dawn patrols are the absolute best way to get waves solo around here. Now with the time change I am in the water no later than 5:45 and surf till 7:30. Soon I will be able to see at 5:30 and I can get a solid 2 hours. Usually for the first 30 minutes, maybe even 45 I can surf alone or with maybe one other head. I love being the first guy out... even though by getting out at 7:30 I'm usually one of the first ones getting out of the water.
The amount of high tides this year for morning sessions have just been a ball buster. Friggin nutso how many incredibly high tides weve had and how many we will have till the end of the year.
Anyways... I love morning sessions... glassy barrels.
We need some swell.

I'm with you on that. After my full moon session last night I pulled up expecting to see chest to shoulder high reeling barrels... Not happening. Glad I stayed in until 6 last night (well past dark). Anyone else get it last night? There was a wait but I surfed literally in front of a Jetty and got some good barrels and loooong lines. Good times...
Forecast is not looking as good as it did on Monday...
