Playing a little catch-up here: Friday 5/2: Outstanding!! Hot, glassy, and SH-HH. Incredibly clean peaks, amazingly clear water that was even sorta warm. About 8 guys out. I paddled out around 1100. The tide was a little high, but there was enough S energy in the water that the sets powered right through it. I couldn't believe how clear the water was. As the sets came in, I could see the wave bend the reflected light on the bottom, or see my crystal-clear outline projected on the sand and shells below. I haven't seen water that clear since surfing Kaisers about a million years ago. Monday 5/5: Solid! Cooler with a marine layer. Light side-offshores putting texture on CH-SH peaks. Very very good shape down by the seawall. Some north-to-south drift. I drifted down there and then just started picking off set waves. Dropped straight into one sick barrel and stuck there for 4-5 seconds. Stalled into another one, looked up and watched the lip sparkling with the fuzzy marine-layer sun. Only 2 other people out. Was still looking excellent when I was drying off. Forecast looks not great for the rest of the week. A bunch of NW windswell is going to make my lunch spot all drifty and crappy while the SW fades. Will probably just go for a run on the beach the rest of the week. Next week looks like a BIG south will be hitting. Could be epic!
