Incoming tide. 3.0 with a 3.8 at 1 pm. Besides the kelp, lots of waves. No crowds. Warm weather and little fun waves. Cowells was a freeway and this was open road surfing.

First off I gotta say this was by far the warmest and sunniest day I had ever seen at Westport mainly because I don't usually come here in the summer. But i bought myself a skimboard and wanted to try it out and when I checked the surf report I was surprised that the was a good swell! It was so big and the time peroid between waves was so short days before hand that the boats were forced stay in the harbor. It was more packed than usual but the waves and weather made up for it. I only caught a few cause Westhaven is like a washing machine, and got pounded by 2. But it was fun and I can't complain!

Waves weren't standing well for the shortboard, so we rode the bodyboards. Very strong tide.

My wife and I booked a place to stay in Sayulita as we're exploring the area for living options. Today was the first day the surf in the town was at all decent. It was coming in decent, albeit little, sets. The biggest waves were probably 4 1/2 foot...decent enough for a long board. The waves are fairly weak and are a good learning longboard wave...my wife is just learning.
We rented boards from Capitan Pablo's....the lady who rented us the baords, who I assume was Patricia, was not really friendly and first gave me a board with the center fin broken off and told me she took it off on purpose...I think she was more concerned with smoking and sitting around. I ended up switching after 20 minutes when the board would go the opposite direction I was turning.
The people in the water are uber-beginners and are annoying but excusable since they're new...although you'd think someone would tell them not to paddle right in front of everyone in the line-up and just sit there but that's beginners everywhere. Fat chicks in bikinis are a bit of an annoying sight when you are trying to make due with what's happening in the surf.
I had read about the annoying locals and it was towards the end of the session when I got a taste. A dude who couldn't have even been having fun surfing little waves was paddling onto almost every wave, the wind had picked up and sets were coming fairly infrequently, and was whistling everyone off and trying to show off. He was yelling like he was having a blast which was either crap or sad since the waves were 3 foot. He was attempting to show off and annoy the shit out of everyone it seemed and it's fairly pathetic when you have to get in the water just to annoy new surfers who are trying to learn the joys.
Either this guy was the worst of the locals or the world's most annoying locals live here and hate tourists and get in the water more out of hatred for others than the joys of surfing.
Super bust and unless you want to get in the water and waste your time and money you're better off heading down to Punta de Mita or elsewhere...super lame.

After the last session I really wanted to get out there and combine the skills that I have with the confidence to ride the waves we had. The last session I hadn't surfed to my ability but had learnt some important lessons.
Unfortunately the conditions weren't lining up for us and today was bigger than Monday but with less shape. I caught a few waves and fell off them. I caught one in the foam and got angling, but just couldn't quite get around it and onto the face. Went for miles though... then paddled back out. I was chuffed that I was catching the waves, though. Finally I caught a nice one and got angling along the face... right up until it sectioned and I didn't manage to get round it.
This was the last session we got. The other days were either bigger, the wind was screaming onshore or the current was so strong that getting into position would have been next to impossible for me.
I've learnt a lot and can't wait to get out at my home breaks with a different view on what 'big' is.
Hoping for small GLASSY conditions when I head back next year. :) Can't wait to see it at its best in offshore conditions.

Today we paddled out the back with an escort. My dad and uncle showed us the best way to paddle out and where to sit. Managed to get cleaned up by one wave when a set came wide, but otherwise made it out the back fine.
I caught two ~head-high waves, the first I rode straight for some inexplicable reason. This left me with a massive distance to paddle back out. But I wanted to know that I could get back out the back. So I paddled wide like I was told and got there. The second wave I caught was looking really nice, but I needed to be angling more straight away. The wind was making the waves really bumpy and I ended up falling off on the second ride after hitting a speed bump.
Overwhelming experience. Hasgiven me a very different perception of my home breaks.

This was James and my first session at Tombstones. To say we were awed is an understatement. There is just so much going on. Lines of swell peeling along, the bombie off to the right, reef, coral, a cliff to climb down; the whole experience is full on.
We stayed in close and caught some reforms on the wide side. The current was fairly strong which meant paddling the entire time to try and position yourself for a decent wave.
Getting out, the tide was low enough for us to climb up the cliff.

The summer of 09, What to say? I have to say the summer of 09 was the best summer I have ever had. So many swells in the 2 1/2 months I was there. Most of the time there was light wind and wave of at least 3 feet (local scale). Some days were 5 feet occ. bigger. Threes most of the summer was going off. It was the best summer of my life and I hope it is the same or better next summer.

Update: BIG MONDAY 6:30 AM DST "Ray Bay" San Gabriel river mouth, Seal Beach. No wind, glassy conditions and a big south swell pumping from 180 degrees. Its low tide and lines are breaking all the way from "Barracuda's" at the north break wall across middles, past "Crabs" at the south jetty. Sometimes the stars align perfectly, the 180 degree swell angle threading the needle past Santa Catalina island to allow a direct hit at Ray Bay while a few miles south its either walled out or 2-3 feet!
Breaking in three separate peaks and occasionally hooking up all the way. You had to get lucky and pick the right wave, you didn't make them all but the ones you did were the ones you remember! Strong rip currents sweeping you south and out to sea at Crabs and north into the breakwater and down river at Cuda's. Caught a big left at Cuda's and got stuck inside, had to let the white water and current pull me over to middles and paddle out from there.
My two best waves were a head high stand up barrel from middles across the low tide suck up at Crabs barely making it as the wave pounded the tail of my board knocking it sideways, and my last wave!
Even though I was riding my 9'0" Quad with a thruster set up, by 10 AM after three hours, was getting pretty tired. I decided to sit outside and wait for a big set for my taxi ride in.
Sat out there for a long time, nothing, starting to get really crowded (like 60 people stretched across the bay) the tide coming in the a sea breeze coming up. Had almost given up when I saw Deon, one of the SUP guys start stroking for the horizon. My patience paid off ... here they come, mountains rolling in!
Everyone scratching outside; paddled over the first three, each one bigger than the last, saw the SUP Deon start stroking into the shoulder of a monster. Paddled into position, up the feathering peak spun around and pushed over into a late takeoff. Took the drop, hard off the bottom, back up the face and snap off the top, just making it through a big section.
Flying down the line I saw two beginners floundering inside, one guy sitting with his back to the wave, oblivious to the 18 wheeler barreling down on him! Luckily the wave was big enough I was able to go up and over their heads. No idea what happened to them must have got really pounded. As I blew through the suck up I caught up to and was now drafting the SUP in front of me ... “Keep going” ... I yelled.
We cruised together across the wall with more beginners inside scattering inside like a school of fish in front of us. Still gliding along in the high line past the rocks at Crabs, he pulled out and I rode it all the way to the sand, almost to 2nd Street!
Sunday 'Ray Bay': June Gloom, with light onshore. Waist to chest high SSW swell running with an incoming tidal push. A cold water up-welling from offshore storms has dropped sea temps to 58F plus a cool 'Catalina Eddy' sea breeze means put away the spring suit for now! Steep take off on the peak at Middles work the boomerang across the wall then up the nose on the inside sandbar by Crabs.
Don't put your feet on the bottom ... Mr Stingy and his buddy's are everywhere!

Just needed to get wet. Still no waves in Monterey. Almost two weeks without breaking waves. I did see two smaller guys breaking off these 1ft. high 30 ft long waves. It seemed like they could catch a 6 incher on their long boards. One of them was only about 12 and he was killing the shore brak with only white water. Inspirational for the fat guy on a short board.

Stormy Weather: June Gloom, dark early morning thunder storm clouds at Ray Bay and a strong SSW swell running with an incoming tidal push. A cold water up-welling from offshore storms and chilly onshore 'Catalina Eddy' went right through my 2M wetsuit! Some peaky overhead bombs rolling through before the wind came up and the tide filled in. BIG take offs as the swell peaked on the sand bar and jacked up from refraction off the North breakwater at Cuda's.

FONTANA, Calif. (AP) ―
A woman has been killed by lightning in San Bernardino County, hours after another person in the county was crushed by a wind-fallen tree during heavy thunderstorms.
Fontana police Sgt. Jeff Decker says the 35-year-old woman was struck by lightning Wednesday afternoon while standing near a tree in front of a home.
Decker told the San Bernardino Sun that the victim's name has not been released.
Earlier, a woman died when a tree crushed her vehicle as she drove in the San Bernardino Mountains during a thunderstorm.
Big Bear Lake fire officials say the large pine tree, rooted near the roadside, snapped about halfway up its trunk during strong winds

Premier essai de ma première planche, c'est comme un dépucelage qui aurait tourné très vite à la semi-molle à cause de la timidité du popol vis à vis de l'imperméable un peu trop serré!
Vagues shore break, t'as à peine fait ton take off que tu te retrouves dans 20 cm de flotte!!! Pas mal de frustration au début, voir d'énervement pour me raviser ensuite car les éléments sont ainsi fait! Et les quelques secondes de bonheur que m'a offert l'océan, ont été mieux considérées par mon mental, sur la deuxième moitié de session: L'occasion pour moi de carrésser cette maitresse qui me rend insatiable en ce moment, par quelques baisers volés et quelques caresses afin de lui montrer toute ma gratitude!
Sinon, en ce qui concerne le mini malibu, ben j'en suis assez content, je sens bien que c'est plus réactif que le Natural 7'9'' de la même marque, les take off et la stabilité ne sont pas plus compliqués contrairement à mon appréhension! Il y a des points qui peuvent être considérés comme négatifs ou positifs selon le point de vue ou les conditions: je pense qu'avec cette planche, il n'y aura plus de mousses (---), ce qui m'obligera désormais à aller dans le grand bain (+++)! Vu mon gabarit, juste à la limite de cette planche en tant que débutant, je prend les vagues plus tard qu'avec le natural ou le lonboard de Jéjé (---) mais ça m'oblige à travailler ma rame (+++) et me permettra d'ici peut d'avoir une carrure à la Patrick Swaze, Héhéhé, y a plus qu'à me mettre à la danse et bientôt ça sera le dancing très très dirty, attention mademoiselles!!!!
Pour résumé, cette planche va m'obliger à progresser encore plus vite, héhéhé, mais il me manquera rapidement une board un plus longue (si vous additionnez le nom et son adjectif, vous voyez très bien de quoi je parle!!!) dans mon quiver pour me faire un minimum plaisir l'été!!!
A bientôt les tontons couilleurs!

2nd days for the girls and riding 50m long waves! Loving the long ride at Pantin. They also learned how to use the channel and get out to the break without getting their hair wet!
Should have made some shots, but I was hanging 5 on the cortez. (OK, almost.) Flo was catching loads on the NSP. Good choice to leave the short boards at home or we would have been struggling for rides.
A small week all over but we will rip anything that we can find today! No wind!

Today was one of those day where I was on my game. Maybe it was surfing with a group of friends again, maybe its just karma from working hard at home and at work.
Tide was pushing for high, in off the steps at Gwithers and over to play on Gillock rock, sucking little shoulder high waves which reformed on the inside if you could continue the motion - caught a couple there then moved across to the next peak - a perfect reeling right hander! I caught so many there I have difficulties remembering one specific ride. I know I was nose riding, pulling fat cutties and off the tops and on a few waves I even managed 2 floaters per wave (unheard of usually at Gwithers). Pulled a HUGE floater over my buddy Mede (sorry dude!). I landed so many moves and just burnt myself out. I'll be smiling for a day or two over that session.

Well I drove all the way from So Cal to Crescent City. There was little to no surf. But that being said, if you get a chance, go! What a fun mellow place. I just decided that I would not spend the money to Rent a stick and Suit. The ater is not as cold as some would think, and the weather was spectacular. Next time I will bring my own stick and surf it. I bet it can get big, but I think it is one of those cool beaches that is mostly there for fun surfing and not kamikaze acts of over machoism.
The folks up there are the nicest people. No So Cal 'tude, so don't bring one yourself. There are some great local spots up there too. But out of respect I wont say were, you will have to search on your own.

My brother came in town from Indiana, and he really wanted to try and surf. I had been dry for three years due to asthma and fatness. Got out there and got caught in a rip on a short board at 280 lbs. with no lungs. Paddled for my life for almost ten minutes. Meanwhile my Bro. on the 8 ft long board soft top cruised into the shore with two small breaks. Finally I see a fat kid like up to his waist about fifty ft to my right...DUH!!! Paralell to the shore. It Kicked in about two minutes I cleared the rip, and found some beach. I bet I looked hilarious to the guys in line-up.
Overall I decided to lose weight, start skateboarding again and now I am working on getting a wetsuit and another board.
Once I made it back to shore I spent the rest of the day body boarding in the shore break. Hopefully it won't be too long until my next session. Maybe I'll catch a wave this time.
