Rabbits (Dunes)

Fun chest- to shoulder-high clean waves this morning in Half Moon Bay, and just my little surf posse on it: Luke, J-Bird and Jacob. The paddle out was easy and the lulls not too long. A few waves were fast and workable to the inside for long rides, while others were smaller and playful.
No better way to start the day than immersed in nature, washed by the ocean and surfing her waves, with a few buddies to share the stoke.
Title note: There were an abundance of rabbits at the State Beach early this morning, hopping away as I parked my car, darting down the path in front of me as I checked the surf, and peering out of the bushes. They faded away to their nests as darkness gave way to daylight.

Surfline: WNW(290-310) groundswell fades through the day today, offering up the most size early. Better breaks see mainly knee-waist-chest high surf, with top NW exposures pulling in some occasional sets in the shoulder high range. Conditions are mostly clean across the region with light ESE winds.
