Three nice chop swells in a row last week. Lots of fun chest-high+, occasional head-high on Sunday, Friday just a chop but occasional bombs came in, earlier in the week another real fun little chop swell. Welcome to Red October!
Surfed a couple sessions low - mid tide, winds allowed nice, surprisingly powerful lefts and good rights. Plenty of near-perfect shortboard rides. Occasional bigger sets. Perhaps some short-period groundswell had mixed in with the wind-swell. Hadn't surfed in months. Looks like some small waves still left today for the stragglers.
Nice easterly lines yesterday in Hull, wind picked up out of the west after noon and made it hard to catch waves but still some nice drops - and I saw some long rides from other surfers. Water not too cold, just hard to surf with 28 knot gusts in your face. Next Thursday should be even nicer with a SW wind.
Solid, pumping, gnarly swell. S-SSW wind. If it had been SW would have made even more-perfect, near-epic tubes but it was almost that good a swell thanks to almost Perfect Storm Sandy. Surfed receding high to mid. Good to get out after almost 2 weeks since Rafael. Tomorrow = clean leftovers.
Still some nice walled-drops, occasional bombs, little shifty in the peak. Best tides seem to be mid-mid, mid, and high, mid-high is sort of screwy, particularly with the West winds. About 50 or so shortboard rides in last two days - not bad.
Sorry, I mis-described the radio button for the winds - it was semi-clean/textured out of the south. Today, it will be similarly dicey but there could be periods particularly towards the afternoon where the south is sort of SSW. Who knows? Might get cleaner by some luck. Enjoy!
Fun - paddle out
