cold but sunny, a decent day at the beach...  couple surfers here and there riding tiny tubes...  caught enuff waves to be content...
 
 
a  westerly swell moved in nice and easy, maybe a bit on the small side, but for an hour or so in the morning the waves were just big enuff to ride...  wasnt too cold either, just wish the waves had lasted...
 
 
around 7-8am the last of the big sets rolled thru...  i caught a few good rides...  but as the day went on conditions deteriorated...  some short rides on small waves closer to shore, but it was cold so i quit... 

has been a great couple of days out there for surfers...  too bad it is over...
 
 
it was pretty messy out there at 8am...  saw a few surf-able waves breaking near the piers with a few surfers riding the short crashers...  i went out farther past the buoys and caught some big 7-10' drops that were really fun and fast...  i didn't land them all, and had some pretty exciting spills...  the wind picked up and ruined the big sets around noon so i quit...

more waves tommorrow...  yay...
 
 
but still enuff fun...  played for a few hours on smaller waves...  some clean lines of surf in the mix...  another sunless day on the gulf with waves coming in from the SW and crashing near the end of the piers and also closer to shore...  a few surfers here and there catching semi-consistent waves...
 
 
showed up around noon and stayed till sunset...  lots of people out in pretty good conditions...  no sun to be had, and not horribly windy...

got to surf all day on 4 different boards, 6'10 7'6 7'8 8'6...  was pretty consistent 3-5' waves with a few small tubes here and there...  easy to catch most of the time, but still a few dangerous sets now and then...  did some nose riding, a few tricks, and got some long 10 second rides down the beach...

heading out again tommorrow...  practice makes perfect...
 
 
the waves formed around 10am and disappeared by sunset...  but while they were here, tons of surfers showed up and rode them all day long...  not bad conditions overall, had a lot of fun on a few boards...
