Straight out of Stockton, CA - PAVEMENT. Alt punk band is on the ipod all day today.
Another misty, foggy blanket hangs over town this morning. Winds are light and south and the temp is 56F. Sun should burn it off by early afternoon and our nice days will continue. Better than it looks out there today and any day you surf is better than not. Combo NW windswell + small south swell in the water. Like the package of chicken you buy at the store - pieces and parts. If you get into the wave and if you make the section and if you float the little ledge (all fun things to do on a board) it does hold up and some good rides can be had.
Channel: Still showing lefts off the 2 sandbars. Deeper Channel bar is waist high +. A bit dumpy but some smooth, flat sections to work. Inside Groin left is smaller but working as well. Shorter boards will work as there is still some energy just not as smooth or clean as yesterday.
Patch: Crumbling waves in the thigh high + size. Plenty of water so rocks are covered and you can right it almost to the beach before kicking out. About 5 surfers in the water right now.
Check out the trailer for our friend Doug Walker's new surf movie "Lost and Found" It will be premiering at the NYC Surf Film Fest in September and is a great piece of surfing history that should not be missed.
