Happy Halloween (Linda Mar)

The perfect wetsuit for surfing on Halloween
Linda Mar was offering up lots and lots of small fun waves this morning. Quite a few even had short shoulders, and the high tide was forging the usual pitching closeouts into gentle mush. It was crowded of course, but I found a peak between Taco Bell and the bathrooms that gave me enough room to play. It helped that a lot of folks were sitting far outside, waiting for the bigger sets, plus there were many kooks not catching anything. More for me!

I got so many rides that when it was almost time to go, instead of thinking my usual "OK, just one more," I bumped it up to "just five more," and then added a bonus 6th wave. Happy Halloween!

Surfline: 2-3 ft+. Mostly clean, but shape stays pretty soft/sectiony overall. Expect the occasional shoulder that stays semi-workable to the inside. WNW (270-305) energy continues to fade today as small Southern Hemi swell mixes in. Semi-clean waist-shoulder high surf is fairly common early on. Wind is currently light out of the S. Buoy 46012: (Wave) SWELL: 4.6 ft at 11.4 s WNW / WIND WAVE: 1.0 ft at 3.7 s SSW / WVHT: 4.6 ft / APD: 7.4 s / MWD: 282°
