Lots of morning all-hands meetings at work and yesterday was David W.’s last day. marks the end of another chapter for sure. Without him, JV wouldn’t have been acquired and in turn, we wouldn’t have been. I always liked David and respect him even more now that he’s leaving to work on something to help his home country, India. Also this week was occupied with looking for condos for M&D(!). Definitely needed to sneak in a surf before the weekend, though. The minor SW was fading but Surfline was still calling for it to be fair. Broke our recent habit of paddling out when it was almost high tide and instead caught it as it was dropping. Big crowd near the middle and TB but less so on the south end so we headed out there. I got a little right within the first few minutes while Max was still on the beach. After that, waves just appeared regularly and we both caught lots of fun rights. I got a really good left that went all the way into kelp-land, but high-lined most of the way and loved the speed. Lots of kelp on the inside again. Whales again on the outside. Beautiful weather still. Only two shortboarders on the inside of us. Love the solitude and surfed near Max the whole time lined up to the “willow clump.” FUN.

POOR TO FAIR CONDITIONS
Afternoon Report for SF-San Mateo County: Fun mix of NW swell and SW swell has surf in the waist-shoulder high range for exposures, while best combo breaks see head high+ sets. Winds are still pesky from the WSW, adding a little texture and crumble to otherwise clean conditions. Tide drops to a 1.48′ at 3:15pm.
4ft at 5s WNW (307°)
3ft at 10s NW (312°)
