The waves were small and inconsistent at the Jetty, but I got some fun rides and waited out the lulls watching a fly-by of antique planes headed to Dream Machines at the HMB airport.
J-Bird and Jacob, with their buddy Chris (who needed a spot suitable for a 6’4″) and his friend, had declined the Jetty and went on a mini surf safari I didn’t have time to join. They reported that Dunes was closed out but they found clean overhead right shoulders at Kelly.
Surfline: WNW-NW (275-300+) swell fades today as small SSW (180-200) Southern Hemi energy mixes in. The better NW exposures see waist-chest-head high waves initially, but size dwindles through the day. Light wind early for generally clean conditions overall, although a 4’+ high tide slows things down later this morning.
