Best Ever

Feb. is one of those months that is always small, windy and the water’s cold. But this week the forecast shows us that we’re in for a treat all week. With over head waves and lighter winds later on making this one of the best Feb I have seen to date.DSC_6121 DSC_6167 DSC_6216 DSC_6226

Gone Crazy

It’s been a nice week of small surf and some wind blowing as always. But as of yesterday the winds have gone crazy and uncontrollable blowing down trees and anything else it can take out. But hey, there are still waves coming in and it’s offshore. .DSC_5819 DSC_5847 DSC_5931 DSC_5942

Yep, Windy

Oh the days of the lite offshore winds blowing in your face….. is over!! These days it’s blowing spray and sand in your face as you try your best to catch a wave. Along with it has come the cold water, full suit needed, but there are waves still coming in so get out there and quit crying.DSC_5563 DSC_5565 DSC_5575 DSC_5593

Back to Normal

Well a good thing doesn’t last forever. The strong winds have come back around and as usual small waves. Oh, and with it the water temps have dropped back down once more. Where’s my full suit??DSC_5532 DSC_5535 DSC_5539 DSC_5544

Beats All

Yep, beats all I’ve ever seen. The boss man making an appearance today and hadn’t seen him out that much, or any. First wave gets a clean barrel and his 2sc wave a nice cut back. Still got it. Waves and warm water always brings the best out in us.DSC_5463 DSC_5464 DSC_5465 DSC_5466 DSC_5467 DSC_5494

Never Before

WOW, you won’t believe what has happened here that has never happened before! Jan has always been one of the windiest months of the year and the water always cold. So the wind died, waves died only to be reborn again with a new swell and WARM WATER!! Yew, surfing in shorts again with lite off shore winds.DSC_5410 DSC_5412 DSC_5414 DSC_5415

The Cycle

We can’t have waves all day everyday even though it seems like we do. Sooner or later the swell goes through it’s life cycle then fades away. Only to be replaced by a new one, out there, somewhere, waiting to come in. We’re here waiting and waiting, oh look…..the winds on shore.DSC_6774 DSC_6794 DSC_6806 DSC_6816

Close to Shore

Needless to say the surf is small and breaking as close to shore as it gets. But the waves are peeling, the water has warmed up a tad (some say) and as always the sun is shinning.DSC_5277 DSC_5299 DSC_5303 DSC_5316

Chilly Times

It’s January folks and even though it’s not as cold as where you are, it’s still chilly down here for us. Air and water temps have dropped along with the size of the swell coming in. But the sun is always shinning to warm up the day.DSC_5220 DSC_5238 DSC_5249 DSC_5256

January Swell

Not too often do we get a good swell hitting in Jan. around here. But it does happen and we are grateful to have one coming in instead of the small stuff. Water is cold, winds blowing hard and a little cloudy with some rain thrown in.DSC_5141 DSC_5148 DSC_5150 DSC_5201
