Surf Report 2013

Postby sf_firestarter » Mon Jan 07, 2013 12:40 am

Well if you like double overhead short period swell you could have had all you wanted today at OB. I surfed a few hours alone only catching a couple waves. Lots of work not lots of fun but I really needed to get in the water to clear my head. Today that was good enough. Hope others found a spot making better use of the swell.

Well, I did my annual pilgrimmage to Rincon yesterday... It felt like I was out for three and a half hours to watch others surf, drop in on people, and be dropped in on... I saw some serious burning going on. Not at all what I'm used to. It's enough to take away your hope in humanity. Kind of a bummer. I did get one primo set wave my first wave. How sheltered am I to think Rincon on a Saturday might be a good call? I'll never do that again. But man what a wave...

Pulled the wool over the whole HB surfing community today! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Surfed the Cove at about 6-7 foot faces. NOBODY OUT! Couldn't even see anyone in the water anywhere the first hour.
It was just me, myself and I gorging on the peaks and tubes.
I felt like whitey at a seal factory, like a vampire at a blood bank, like the Spaniard at a Paris Hilton look-a-like convention.
Had a few knarly ones which I made luckily, or it would have been a spectacular crash.
The third hour a guy paddles out. I had to burn him hard. He violated one of the rules of surfing with the Spaniard.
The fourth hour about six guys were out, but then they disappeared and I was alone again gorging...
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :P

If there is nobody there to see the tree fall, how do you know it fell. I on the other hand did hear the waves breaking, I was riding them. :lol:
Fish, I thought you were coming out today.
Tomorrow will be bigger, but no combo south in it, so will have to look for corners. :wink:

No need to be, it was a very rare instance. If it was common, I wouldn't have written about it. :wink:

Mike, since you lead a charmed life of surfing great swells when no one else is around (remember that New Zealand GoPro video of you alone on that sizable swell there?), maybe you can help me out. I'm writing this from Ho Chi Minh City, staring out my hotel window at the very flat and glassy Saigon River. Can come over here so I can witness a miraculous and epic tidal bore suddenly come to life and roar through, and you alone to score it!

Of course, the pollutants will delam your board (and you kidneys) about halfway through the session, but I'll film it all from my vantage point!

BTW, I'd rather go left at Mavericks than ride a motorscooter in these crowded city streets. Never seen anything so scary, with a families of four packed onto a single scooter, and an infinity of other drivers all sandwiched into one mass of chaos heading in every direction at once. I gaze out my cab window in absolute disbelief!
I'm not influenced by the past; I change it!
