slack winds... crummy surf

My surf-scene knowledge comes second-hand from the Lerminade. I woke up around 6 and was both shocked and awed to observe the total absence of wind. Lerm soon called to inform that the beach was bigger and messy. I guess the wind blew late into the night and the sea-surface hadn't had time to settle down yet, or maybe this windswell is just inherently messy. Soo.. i thought about hitting P-town but instead ended up kickin' it "root down" at my place.. Made a huge smoothie with ginger/blueberries/peach/banana/apple/OJ/ice and played some music and stretched. Lerm later informed me that Pacifilus was a bit more sedate than OB, but still gnarled and grumpy and mostly lacking in rideable waves... but.. hopefully we'll hear it strait from the horses mouth.


If you could have any wave in the world in your backyard for just you and your friends which would you choose? keep in mind consistency/water temp/winds/etc. (off the top of my head i might choose Lakey Peak or Trestles)

If you could instantly purchase three pimpin' pads anywhere on earth.. where would they be? (for me: SF - in the woods behind Cole Valley, Kauai north shore, southern france.. or NYC)

If you could've grown up anywhere in the world, where would you choose (Los Osos, CA)

letter from Mark Massara

Dear Coastal Activist:

Summer is here. Warm days and great waves. Every day now, you see
families walking along the shore, volley ball games, surfing and picnics.
Californian’s everywhere are thinking about the beach…even in the
governor’s mansion!

Yesterday, after months of anticipation, Governor Schwarzenegger finally
made three of his four appointments to the California Coastal Commission.
I think we should all be encouraged that the governor has turned his
attention to our precious coast, and appreciate the governor’s statement
released yesterday which said “California's coastline and beaches are some
of our most valuable assets.” I think we all agree completely with that

In a few short weeks, these three new commissioners will begin to make
decisions on coastal protection that will affect all 1,100 miles of our
shoreline. They will also, with their votes, be our first opportunity to
measure Governor Schwarzenegger’s commitment to a coastal legacy we can be
proud of. Therefore, we need to allow all of the governor’s appointments
to start with a clean slate.

The three new appointments are:
• Meg Caldwell, Director of Stanford Law School's Environmental and
Natural Resources Law and Policy Program
• Bonnie Neely, Humboldt County Supervisor, and former Coastal
Commissioner under Governor Deukmejian
• Steve Kram Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of
the William Morris Agency, Inc.

Leaving the Commission will be John Woolley, Mary Nichols and Cynthia
McClain-Hill. I thank them for their service to the coast and the
sacrifices they made to sit on the Coastal Commission.

I think we should take this opportunity to welcome our new Commissioners.
We can introduce them to our unique and exciting coastal protection
campaign and urge them to make wise choices that will safeguard our
threatened coast. Help me send a message of thanks for taking on this
great responsibility and protecting our coast for our children and our
children’s children.

YOUR LOCAL PAPER, commenting on how you are optimistic about the
governor’s Coastal Commission appointments, and hope that this is truly a
sign of Governor Schwarzenegger honoring his promise to “protect the
integrity of the Coastal Commission.”

Thank you for helping protect the coast!


Dear Commissioners Caldwell, Neely and Kram:

As one of the 5,000 members of Sierra Club’s statewide Great Coastal
Places Campaign I wanted to offer you a warm welcome. I also want you to
know that I am grateful to you for taking on this awesome responsibility
to both protect and restore our coast.

As you must know, the Commission plays a unique role in California,
protecting more than just the beaches and bluffs we call home. The
Commission is also the guardian of the beautiful shores that have come to
symbolize California’s commitment to future generations.

I urge you to use your new power, as a representative of Governor
Schwarzenegger and the people of California, to uphold the Coastal Act and
stand up to the special interests determined to squander our threatened
coastal legacy.

The children of the future will thank you for protecting their clean
water, coastal open space and coastal access.

OB: FICKLE. Really changed on the outgoing tide. Still changing by the second. Foggy onshores, not too bad right now. Currently very warbly/ soupy, head high, bigger and board-breaking closeout juice earlier. Still strong looking but muuush. Been looking for peaks all morning...looking...hey! There's one! Then it's gone. Then it kind of comes back. Elias is right on the money. Rare sort-of peaks blinking in and out but they are damn hard to find. One taker at a time trying out short sessions. I can feel the ice cream headaches from here...duckdiving-a-plenty. Overall convoluted but somebody might get lucky. Cheers,

got a short, 2 ride sesh in at schmlindy. mostly typical, crappy closeouts, but at least that pesky NW wind wasn't blowing.

mwsf and i are heading to vegas for a few days. an old friend is getting married to a stripper that has a bunch of stripper friends that work there. should be interesting. then off to south carolina for work for a couple of days. the surf will undoubtedly be good while i'm gone.

Posted by: lerm at June 9, 2004 11:03 AM

Stah's got it right, I want to change my SeaCliff to Lower Great Highway.

BTW, was that you Blakestah getting out at my street this AM around 6:30?

I walked up in my bathrobe to see a guy getting out already (never a good sign at 6:30). Then I saw him start walking North and figured either he did not make it out, or just got swept too far too fast.

Posted by: Friend #1 at June 9, 2004 11:12 AM

Just got back from 9 days in Kuaui. I stayed on the South side in Poipu Beach. There was a nice break just a couple hundered yards from my condo that broke every day. Waves were about waist to head high and had either off-shore or side shore winds. Always surfable. The break reminded me a bit of The Hook in SC except that the lefts were as long as the rights.

What a nice place. Friendly locals too. Water temp 78. Morning temp 70 to 72. Afternoon temps 83. Got in a little snorkeling and kayaking too.

Here's a quick picture. North side is green and lush. Lot's of rain showers but warm and tolerable. Hanalei Bay is happening in the winter but surfable in the summer. Incredible sunsets.

East side is the windward side. Trades never stop blowing. Always something to ride but not the best conditions. In fact, I was basically surfing in trade wind wrap around stuff on the south shore.

South side. Nicest weather on the island. Trades blow side to slightly offshore. Picks up south swells from the souther hemi. Just got a pulse from last weeks south swell though. Pushed it to head high.

West side is hot and dry. The mountains in the center of the island blocks the rain. Didn't get to surf there on this trip. Wiamea Canyon is woth the drive. It's like a tropical Grand Canyon.

Chickens are everywhere. Roosters never shut up. But I didn't mind them at all.

Highly recommend this trip.

Posted by: Dennis at June 9, 2004 11:14 AM

i've always said if i was really, really filthystupidugly rich like bill gates (...how old is his daughter now?) i would buy an insane spread just outside of the whistler area and put a HUUUUUUUGE wave pool in the backyard, full on pacbell-esque lighting, etc. how sick would that be? snowboard whistler all day, go home and surf under the lights.

of course, i'm poor and don't even own a couch.

Posted by: j at June 9, 2004 11:16 AM

Happy with my pad; wouldn't mind another at a mountain lake near trout and skiing, and another at a great break. As for waves, ask me again in a few years when after assiduous effort I make it to Intermediate.

Fuck, I grew up in the OC and I HATE the Fakers, ever since Shaq showed up.

Whenever they lose it is not because they got beat, it was because they lost focus or whatever.

Well, last night the Piston's lost.

Fucking blew it like the T-wolves did in game 6.

Just keep taking it to the hole and make your freethrows, that is how you beat the Lakers.

Too bad Big Ben shoots the freebies worse than Shack.

Posted by: Friend #1 at June 9, 2004 01:06 PM

I like the Odd Todd shout-out from Blakestah. He's right up there with slater, for sure.

I have too many Odd Todd stories to even know where to start, having grown up surfing with him in Bolinas. That's one of the things a lot of people may not know about Todd -- he's a dominant local at a few sf breaks, and he commutes to them from Bo, and always has. He's earned a place in those line-ups and others thru lunacy and creative surfing.

He charges, too. Saw him get destroyed at Mav's on Dec 17...i was waiting for lefts and he was sitting right next to me trying to surf the rights from there. Madman.

hmmm...late post here...and most good options have already been mentioned (i especially approve of Kaiser's nonslurf activity!), but i'll pitch in my $0.02...

wave: J-Bay (not that i've surfed it, but the cold water and landlord vibe would make me feel right at home and, come-on, it is the right by which all are judged!...plus it would mean that my front-yard is the entire continent of Africa!)

pads: the Ranch (why not?), Sea Cliff (the one in Cape Town, that is! ; ), a 55' sloop for me and my lady to travel the high seas and explore endless coastline

hometown: aforementioned ocean-cruising sailboat

surfers: machado, dorian, curren

wahine surfer: either my lady-charger (hey!...she reads this board too from time to time! ; )...or the latest lady with a board posted by Kaiser

non-surf activity: bombin' nightime hills with amigos on longboards, skiing bottomless pow in an alpine bowl, anything that makes me feel like a 17 year-old hooligan again, and, of course, love nugs!

Posted by: ck at June 9, 2004 01:23 PM

I'm confused about the rules. Seems to me there are different things that fire up local Blogatanian tempers. (a) Giving realtime reports on a very specific spot so everyone hauls butt there and turns it into a group grope. (b) Naming or describing a truly secret spot that no one knows about. (c) Naming a "secret" spot that is ONLY available by checking Surfline or reading the California Guide to Surfing. And, (d) Naming a spot that is so obvious that you would have to be brain dead or from Bum Luck Egypt not to know about. . . and, you've never driven down the friggin' PCH or if you did you were so high you couldn't look out the passenger side window.

Far as I'm concerned, (a) and (b) can sometimes be sins. (c) Can be tacky, but probably doesn't do much harm. (d) Drives me crazy. Granada secret? Must be smokin' whoopie weed and staring straight ahead at the car in front of you. "Maintain!" "Maintain!"

Girlie (supposing at least the first post is real), I was out there too 1:30-3:30. Longboarders were getting nice rides at their usual spot, with easy paddle-outs. I was there for a while but couldn't catch the rollers that the longboarders were digging. I left for the steeper stuff a little up-beach and traded a bunch of paddling battling the (7-foot?) close-out sets for a couple of sweet rides, the last one of which held its shape for multiple seconds!

Posted by: Klooless Kook at June 9, 2004 04:16 PM

Yes thanks for the stylie points, Blakestah. The honor! Thank god you don't have any pics of my famous arse-first surfing.

OB: cold, windier, shrunken [ shoulderish] but oddly enough a true desperation session appears to be more feasible than it did this morning. There are....uh... some easier-to-spot chunks to scramble around and maybe even stand up on for 1.7 seconds. Without this cold I'd paddle out, but then again I'm completely retarded, so don't listen to me. Kiteboarder patrolling the inside.

Girlie, I will be sure and say hello next time I see you. Feel free to post pics anytime.

As for Hawaii, Kauai is the shit! Although I would much rather surf there in fall/winter when Hanalei is working. Such a sweet setup. But as someone pointed out, watch out for the Irons' bros droppin lines in the bathrooms around dem parts. They like that sort of stuff.

how does everyone know the narcotic habits of pro surfers? i must have missed that issue of Surfing.

Posted by: luke at June 9, 2004 05:10 PM

Luke, mine k-nowledge came completely second hand from two sources: 1) a scooter-driving, weed-dealing businessman that delivered some goods to me in Kauau a few years back; 2) A couple of chicas that worked in a plate lunch restaurant where I was throwing down some teri beef and mac salad post sesh.

"I've seen that older Irons kid sitting in this parking lot doing cocaine with a bunch of friends...."

Thats all I know. I would assume they have kicked the habit by now but don't forget that about 3-4 years ago, both of those guys were headed south.

Also, ask anyone that has spent a fair amount of time in the islands recently and they will tell you that crystal meth is running wild over there. Ask Christian Hosoi why he is in jail for 10 years....

BTW, great SI article on Christian Hosoi last week. Find it if you can.

Technically speaking, coke isn't a narcotic.

Gotta love OB:

You seem to have tried something like this:

i heard you can do slalom ski through the volcom house

I'm sticking to it.

Of course Odd Todd made that wavc - it's pretty hard to make it to that point and screw it up.

Got Bondo? Odd Todd fact of the day. He collects broken boards from a heavily localized SF break and fixes them with Bondo.

Huh? and Didn't work

Dr. Blakestah gave us posers. . . I mean posters another handy trick. The pics at my site are 900 pixs wide and when I posted them here they were way huge (small is better so people don't see how amateur they are). So if you add the last part in this tag you can specify the size:

[left arrow]img src="[url address]" width="400" [right arrow]

BTW, Marcus at Surfline linked to my pics from last weekend at Local Knowledge. Every time he does that SurfHumor goes to 500 visits and 70,000 hits a day. Surfline must have a huge following. I prefer staying non-profit, which means I can't make a profit no matter how hard I try! :-)

I highly recommend blocking through-links to surfline. Force them to click your google ad links in order to see your pics :)

I had a real appreciation for Surfline and Sean Collins when he was a forecaster. One day, Sean streamed a webcam from Huntington Beach, and traffic went wild. He re-defined his strategy - it is all about the cams. Now, his forecasting sucks. His reporters stink. LOLA is a glorified re-run of Wavewatch III (Surfline DIDN'T WRITE ANY FORECASTING CODE, ONLY A NEW GRAPHICAL OUTPUT). People go there for the cams, and I fundamentally oppose surfcams on principle.

This is just a wee test on a board from a couple of days ago to see if I can get a pic up here.
