Good afternoon! I am trying to de-thaw my fingers and toes after taking pictures for the surf report today. The winds are brutal. They are blasting out of the NNW at 18-19 mph and gusting up to 23-24. It would gust so hard that it would make you stumble if you were standing still. On the water it wasn’t so bad. It was the surf conveyor belt or better yet the surf treadmill, but when you would catch one of those rights coming through, it was worth it. The size is dropping though. Sets that were coming through at solid waist to rib+ high are mostly coming in at just waist. The bigger sets are getting fewer but they are still out here to be ridden. We should have surf until dark. I would wear a hood if you have it, but booties are only if you want them. The water temp is still comfortable in a full suit alone.
