A little swell is sneaking in out there. It's definitely not pumping, but it is fun. Had to wait for the good ones, they didn't come all that often, but patience could really pay off this morning.

The tide was low this morning which made for a lot of closeouts. It was one of those mornings where you gamble. You find yourself having a discussion with yourself in your head, "Do I surf early with low tide and no wind or do I wait for more tide and pray the wind doesn't come up?"
I waited, not sure it was the best decision, it actually might have been a little better about an hour before I paddled out, but I was happy with the result. I caught a few waves that really made the session worth it. Besides, with the warm water and summer coming to an end it feels good to get out there and take advantage before it is all gone. If you haven't yet get out there and get some. The wind picked up after I left but perhaps it will calm back down for a little evening session?
Paddle lessons are still available, take advantage of warm water and great summer weather. Contact John at 619-213-6622, or email him at
