Surf spot: Westport, United States of America

Description:

The thing about Westport is that its best after labor day wknd for several reasons:  no crowds, better weather, nicer swell, more parking and less traffic to get there and get out.

During the summer you'll have to contend with all of the above if you want to take a chance to get lucky and catch some waves, otherwise you're driveing 80 miles south to OR, and with gas being what it is, thats another $50 in gas and 3+ hrs of driving.  So catch the dawn sessions and late late evenings, enjoy the freak show from a good spot you scored in the parking lot during the day, play with the dog and take naps.

On good days theres some really talented surfers there that can make anyone feel humble, but for the most part watch your head and board (especially during summer) or you'll get hit by a rental board.

The cove hardly works in the summer but when it does (no matter when) its not for the begginers.  fast, powerfull wave with a steep take off, drops fast, breaks in showllow water and will pound you and make you go on the spin cycle.

Groins, super nice when they're working, just can't hold more then a dozen people.

Jetty...nice when its clean which is rare, usually crowded.

The town has nothing to offer really but if you're going for anything else besides surfing, theres somethere wrong.  Mermaid's is a prolly your best  bet for a good restaurant and cool bar at night (only one in town), the other two are white trash jokes for the most part (no offense to the local white trash).

Surf shops?  There are two, The Surf shop (first one you'll see when you drive into town) which in my personal experience is the last place i'd ever step foot inside ever again. got a bad vibe from the owner, big al, who was a dick to me and my friend.  The second shop closer to the braks, Steepwater is way, way, way cooler with way nicer and cool owners.

Camping?  Twin harbors state park, not cheap but nice, not too far away.  Theres a private site too, forgot the name of it and plant of motels and rv lots i know nothing about.

One shitty grocery store so bring your own food.

Theft, crime or cops don't seem to be a problem.

I really like westport, its my defoult spot and really like the people i've meet there, super nice locals and mellow visitors. 

I think that sums up westport....

Surf spot: Seaside Point, United States of America

Description:

My first time surfing the Cove, even though I lived in Seaside back in '96.  Since I worked in CB I usually would go to shortys or Indian.  Checked out the point/cove Sat, Sun and Mon of Memorial day wknd and finally put on the cold wet wetsuit Monday morning on the way out of town (after having a mediocre time at Shortys both Sat and Sun) and I'm so glad I did.... cought a cpl nice long waves that put a smile on my face and redeemed the long drive, its good to leave on a high note.  It was me and a only a cpl other surfers in the water so crowd/space was not an issue (not so at shortys)!  

I imagine that the point and cove work a lot better late fall, winter and early spring so thats prolly since there were not too many people out.  

After reading all of the agro negativity in the posts below regarding the locals (even the caption on top of this site sort of fuels both the fears of new comers and lets the locals feed on it i think) I'm sure the peeps reading it want to hear about that too.... 

Well, first off i'm not the best surfer, but i try not to be a clueless dick and i'm pretty intuative as far as whats what.  I've never had any issues with locals in hawaii (even though i was the only white person at magic rocks) or CR.  Ya, i got vibed in the parking lot and got some static after just being polite.  fuck it, no big deal.  i don't need friends but certaingly don't need enemies either though...life is too short and world too small for that (as evidenced by running in to the same crew at a diff break later that day).  i remember when i lived there we automatically hated people just for having WA plates.  Just rember where you're at, keep your eyes out, take it all in and enjoy.  I wish i had surfed seaside a long time ago, it really is a nice spot and i see why it would be worth protecting.  I'd not park in the south end of the lot or real far south small "lot".  Your best bet would be to park in the beggining of the lot where the old man drink their coffee and stare out at the surf.

Seaside is always cool in my book, not just cuz i lived there or been going since i was ten but b/c its beautiful and just nice.... i'd like to be a regular but unfortunately its too long of a drive, which...maybe just as well, less people there the nicer it will be for everyone, not just the locals.

I finally succeed to meet Vincent after maybe 15 years wihtout seeing eachother....

I was a little disappointed when we arrived as the sandbank was not really working. After one hour, it was crowded and we decide to move. We found a really nice peak : rights and lefts, pretty fast and hollow. I got really good waves with fun tubes ! a good session at the end

Surf spot: Mansfield Jetty, United States of America

Description:

There are no waves here. It is all just a farce. Illegal Aliens will rob you if you go there. There are devils there at night as well. Also a tight group of expat locals that will hassle you in the lineup. Dont go there if you value your life. No good for surfing. 

OK, heres the real deal. 

Did the Hell Drive on Saturday the 25th. Couldn't make it any earlier so missed the low tide drive. In any case, it was worth all 5 hours of hell to get there. Arrived around 3 PM on Saturday and caught nice chest to head high peelers. Long rights (100 to 150 Yards) and short sweet lefts (50 Yards). Been going there for 30 years and once again I remember why I love that place. Surfed all day the next day (Sunday) and it just kept coming. What a blast. Just got back from Costa Rica about a month earlier and of course caught nice waves at Domincal and Pavones and a couple of secret spots, but I gotta say that on a FUNNESS level last weekend at Mansfield was right up ther with the Costa trip. When you factor in the 0 crowd that counts for a lot. Now here comes June, and the 2008 Cane season. Thank god the place is so hard to get to. ______)))))_________)))))))) Pura Vida

Description:

I started alone on this little fun wave: 1m not powerful but with a beautiful shape.... Waves get better. After 30mn, 3 surfers came but it was fun as the waves get bigger (1.2m) and hollower.

Unfortunately 6 other guys came and the swell fall. Nethermind, I caught some good ones (one tube, one aerial...a good session ! )

Surf spot: Three's, United States of America

Description:

I woke up early this Sunday for my last session in Hawaii after living and surfing here for three years.  Tuesday I fly off to Coco Beach to start a new chapter in my longboard expieriance.  I was the first one out to catch a falling tide knee to rare chest glassy "threes".  After catching a couple and misjugding a couple more the morning crew arrived.  After surfing here for as long as I have, I know that when I am in a new  spot I ensure those that surf there more often get a few good sets in before I start charging again (Haole surfing 101).  However, these guys must have thought me a Kook or truly believed they owned the spot, I got pushed, snaked, and down right run out of the premo outside sets.  I know my role in Hawaiian waters when alone so I moved to the inside where I started catching some smaller and softer, but still fun, waves until I had one die out unexpectedly and I ran the nose of a borrowed board right into a submerged concreate block.... this threw me right into a bed of urchins!  42 spines in the right hand, too many to list in the right foot and a few in the behind left me scrambling to get back on the board.  Unfortunatly the board had a 3" gouge right in the nose.  An hour later after using some tweezers and solar rez all is almost right in the world, my buddy is happy to have his repaired board back with a case of beer as thanks and I am looking forward to surfing my own stick in a friendlier break.  I would like to wish all those that I have had the pleasure of surfing the breaks of Hawaii with a warm and heart felt mahalo for everything.  For those who think they own the breaks.....where is your aloha brudda?  Much love to all and I will be back again.

Surf spot: In Betweens, United States of America

Description:

Scott and I hit up our last Saturday dawn patrol together in Hawaii on yet another day they were calling flat.  We hit up in-betweens knowing there would be glassy conditions, not to mention I was staying in a hotel just off from the break.  We were very pleased to have the break all to ourselves for the first two hours of the session and riding solid knee to waist (more knee than waist) waves.  It was like a revolving door of surfing and paddling back out.  This may havebeen the smallest day that we ever expierianced at this break, but it was hands down one of the most fun!  The surf gods truly blessed us with a great day with awesome friends!

Surf spot: Goat Island, United States of America

Description:

Scott and I cut out of work early to hit up what was supposed to be a growing 3-5' North swell with Kona Winds.  To our surprise the swell has slowed and will not arrive until tomorrow and will be overhead plus!  We drove from Haleiwa to Turtle Bay checking every break along the way and found blown out knee high waves.   Since we both live over in town we thought we would continue around the island and just see how the swells were on the Eastern shore with the Kona winds.  We were amazed as we checked in on Goat island... knee to waist clean & glassy walls with no one out!  We ran back to the truck, grabbed the boards and had the session of a lifetime.  With the exception of a fifteen minute lull we only spoke in hoots and yells as we passed each other in the endless cycle of paddle turn ride, paddle turn ride.  For a day without clean surf we found our oasis...

Took my three sons to the beach for mothers day and decided it was a great time for lessons.  My oldest (10) has been learning for a year but the other two are just starting to show interest.  The waves were a clean 1-3 feet and pretty fun.  I even jumped in for a half dozen short rides in the shallow beach break.  My oldest caught two on his own while my middle (6) needed a good push to get in the small break.  My youngest (4) loved riding the shallow white water break near shore.  Mom had a great day of relaxing in the sun and taking pictures.  A great way to spend a mothers day in Hawaii!

I didn't expected much waves this morning but we decided to have a look. And we found this: a 80cm - 1m perfection !!! Cool

yb080511leporgea yb080511leporgeb

A good right-left. I started with my fish alone on those candys. The people strated to come and I get my longboard. It was really fun to surf as the waves were pretty long with a perfect shape.

yb080511leporgec The crowd starts

At one time, there was too much people so I decided to change. I went to a smaller peak with a 60cm perfect wave !!!! It was such a pleasure to take all the waves with nearly no paddle and just stand up on the longboard.

At the end, it was a gooood session....

I went back to the water later in the day but, except the turn below, it was crappy.

Scott and I hit up in-betweens  this week for the Saturday Dawn Patrol, since we had so much fun last week in that area.  We hit the water by 0530 and were the only two out for the first thirty minutes.  We each caught a good four or five waves that were in the waist high range when we got the bright idea to hit Kiasers that was breaking a little bigger.  We padled over and each caught two or three waves with only one other guy in the water before the waves dropped, people showed up, and I got dragged across the low tide reef.  We sat there for a good thirty minutes before the next set came in and we had to fight eight others for the small waves breaking late.  We decided to call it and paddle in via in-betweens.  Much to our amazment when we hit the break there were clean knee high waves and only one other surfer!  We spent another hour nose ridding, smacking lips on cut backs, and just having some plain old fun.  All in all for being windy, choppy, and cold by Hawaii standards (and getting my leg sliced up by coral) it was a great morning to watch the sun rise over Diamond head and Waikiki from the line up.

Surf spot: Seal Beach, United States of America

Description:

This week at Seal Beach: After a clean early morning session Tuesday, Wednesday we had "Victory at Sea" windblown chop compliments of Mr. Catalina Eddy. This morning (Thursday) clean glassy conditions with a mix of NW/SSE and SW southern hemi swells in the water. After a slow start due to a dawn high tide we had classic conditions lasting for over an hour before the outgoing tide took the swell size with it. A mix of chest to shoulder high "Harvey Wallbanger" pier bowls refracting off the sea wall and big middle peaks, into the pier, "suicide rights".
.
 Lightning Bolt 
.
Only a hand full of us out there taking it in turns (Los Alamitos High School team gets out of the water at 8 AM) getting some really nice waves, riding my 9'2" Jean Luc Roberts performance (2 plus 1) longboard. Then I saw it, a dark mountain of a swell lit up the end of the pier ... quick look around ... I was further outside, in the right spot, started paddling out to sea as fast as I could ... yeah it was a big peak all right, a couple of feet overhead at least and clean! A combination of swells from the far NW in the Gulf of Alaska and the deep Southern Ocean meeting on the west coast of California.
.
How many times have you been out in great conditions, slicing and dicing chest to shoulder sized sets, everything dialed in, just having a blast and wishing for that one rogue wave ... that wave of the day ... that perfect wave. 
.
"The Perfect Wave"
Spun around and took the drop, like stepping off a roof, hit the bottom, launched out and up the wall, staying high, couple of small pumps through the bowl, really moving now, barreling down the wall, the wave grinding over the inside sandbar and my board going so fast it was vibrating ... spat me a 100 yards down the line, all the way into the surf school floundering in the shore break. (You know you got a good one when the beginners, eyes as big as tea cups, say "Wow Sir that one was huge!")
.
 
Big Seal  
.
Friday my buddy and I went back for more Pier Bowls but unfortunately so did half of Orange County.  The takeoff spot by the sea wall can only handle a few people, you really got to take it in turns, this morning was cutthroat, everybody jockeying for position and yelled at each other ... only got one screamer by myself across the inside sandbar pumping my SuperFish like crazy with the foam ball nipping at my heels!
.

"The Big Easy"
Saturday the swell had built up with just a light onshore and the "River" San Gabriel river mouth Los Alamitos Bay (Ray Bay), Seal Beach was actually breaking great at "Cuda's" over by the north wall and not too crowded. "The Big Easy" head high big green roller peaks with warm water flowing from the Power Grid upstream . You fade into, run out in front of, then crank off the bottom ... Easy up, then snap off the top.
Fun Fun Fun!
