After joining the Womens’ March (against Trumpism) in Santa Barbara I had just enough time to go for a look at surf prospects up the coast. First stop was El Capitan, a quality right that only breaks occasionally (winter only). As the pics below reveal, it was pretty busy in the 13 degree water under cloudy and cold (12) skies. The top of the point was pretty sketchy as the swell combo was alternately standing waves up or making them suddenly burger out. Would’ve been cold, hard work to surf, but every now and then you’d see someone pick up a screamer. The nearby surf options were not in the same league, which is why everyone was at El Cap.
Today’s been raining steadily, so haven’t been out for a look. Swell’s faded, but we’re supposed to get another brief big pulse tomorrow, so hope to get a snap or two to share.
Sorry, no thoughts about Sydney conditions today, but from what I’ve seen of the indicators, you’re probably looking at Ne spots only and then maybe chest on the biggest ones…
Have a good one!
