A Lotta Stoke with My Friends (HMB Jetty)

J-Bird and Jacob, Luke and Beth, and I met up at the Jetty this morning for one last surf session with Nikki before she starts almost two months away from the ocean. The waves were glassy and chest- to head-high, the sun was shining in a clear blue sky, and there was plenty of stoke to go around.
Unlike Tuesday, I was surfing in The Zone, and it felt really good to be good. For the first hour plus, I was riding with style every makeable wave that came my way, and even surprised myself by landing and riding out some late takeoffs. Beth got her best wave ever, feet on the board all the way to the beach, and started spilling infectious stoke all over the lineup, sharing with friends and strangers alike. Soon after, she joined me and J-bird on a hoot-filled party wave.
Fun drops, fun rides; smiles, everyone!

Surfline: Solid this morning as WNW (285-310) groundswell peaks as a modest SSW (190-205) swell builds in. Better spots are good for solid well overhead to double overhead high surf, with the most openly exposed NW spots pulling in sets in the triple overhead zone. Winds are light out of the NE, keeping conditions clean for much of the region. Buoy 46012: (Wave) SWELL: 8.5 ft at 14.8 s NW 02 / WIND WAVE: 1.6 ft at 3.8 s NW / WVHT: 8.5 ft / APD: 8.0 s / MWD: 312° (Met) WSPD: 8 kts / GST: 10 kts / WVHT: 8.5 ft / DPD: 15.0 s / WDIR: 10° / ATMP: 47.1° F / WTMP: 53.2°.
