Description:

The Merry Month of May:
.
Big waves are measured in increments of fear, the adrenaline rush is a blast but small waves are measured in increments of fun, and ripping up small waves can be just as good!

Tuesday morning, May 27th, Seal Beach River Jetties, Los Alamitos Bay (Ray Bay, largest concentration of Stingray's in SOCAL) low tide, super clean glassy conditions but small, knee to waist with the occasional chest high sets lining up like a point break from Barracuda's on the North Jetty to the Crab's Jetty in the South.

Ray Bay

Only a handful of people in the water catching some nice hollow little waves. Taking off in the jack up from the strong ebb current on the middle sandbar. Just to stay in the lineup you had to keep paddling all the time (or stand on the bottom of the sandbar and hope Mr. Ray was sleeping).

The river has a very small window, usually only lasts for an hour or so, works best on the low tide with incoming push. True to form we had a short session of classic but inconsistant shoulder high beauties!

Nailed a big one right in the suck up, hard off the bottom, smack off the lip, then down for another and another and another, starting to feather in front of me but as my buddies were inside watching, instead of crouching through the section, smacked the lip hard into a backhand floater, slid down in the barrel and blew out on to the shoulder (I swear there was no way I thought I was going to make it) starting to wall up now on the shallow sandbar in front of the rocks at Crabs Jetty, stepped up for a cheater five and going and going and going!

Sometimes you are in the zone and get one of those rides where everything just clicks ... yeah!
