Sweet South Swell - July 25

It was a bit bigger today with the bigger sets in the at least double over head size. I have a sore elbow and only managed two waves before I got rolled a few times and decided to call it quits while I was ahead.

I have been taking the worst pictures this weekend but at least I was taking pictures!. At least they are in 3D! Even if they are in pretty flat/shallow 3d. I need to take my hyper stereo bar out with me so I can get more depth. Oh well.

Make sure to click on the images for a larger view.

This was the biggest wave I managed to get a picture of. How big does this look? 2x over head? It wasn't the biggest one we saw but it was the biggest anyone caught while I had my camera out. When I was getting out of the water I saw a guy gut a huge stand up barrel with room to spare and it was about the same size as this wave.

And here is a party wave -:]

Sweet South Swell - July 24

The surf has been pretty good the last few days and here is some proof. I wish I could have managed some better pictures but I think these show off the waves well enough. I would have shot video but I decided to spend more time surfing than worrying about taking pictures or video since I haven't been out on a day this good and bit in over a year thanks to my knee injury(s).

Be sure to click on the images to see bigger versions in stereo 3D!

This is about as small as it was

Look at that wave.

Close up of the same wave.

This is probably the most 3d of the pictures I got.

It was just really good.


There were lots and lots of fun waves.

Here is one of the bigger waves from this Friday. What do you think, close to double over head?

This is a shot of the peak where we were surfing. I think most of the waves we got were in this range to a little bigger.

Love Note

Went surfing this morning and found this sweet little love note on my windshield when I got back to my car.

Click on the image to see it all big and tough and proud like.
ElVis is DEAD, you fat

The Locals
So if I was from over the hill and there had been good surf and a crowd and I was dropping in on people and all that I might have a little sympathy. But the surf was just kind of okayish maybe and me and a friend were the only ones in the water the whole time we were out at Kelly Ave / Have Moon Bay State Park. So I am guessing they were just jealous of my super awesome big puffy side burns.

And how can you not be!

Right? If you saw these you would probably want to write me secret love notes too. Did I mention that they didn't stick around to chat about my lack of surf skillz (I was in the water catching waves, where were they?) or my burns or my fat wanna be a sumo wrestler physique? Maybe I'll post something in the missed connections section of the HMB paper.
