Lower (HMB Jetty)

Swell, sun and tide were all lower than last time at the Jetty.
The waves were mostly closed out, but I rode several before the sun set on my final surf session of 2011. Here's to getting a full barrel in the new year!
Surfline: This afternoon there's a slowly easing but still solid WNW (280-300) groundswell, with head high+ to double overhead zone surf (6-10') at exposed spots and some larger sets at the better breaks. Winds are light onshore for mainly semi-clean conditions. The tide will steadily back out through the rest of the day. Buoy 46012: (Wave) SWELL: 7.5 ft at 12.9 s WNW 105 / WIND WAVE: 2.3 ft at 5.3 s WNW / WVHT: 7.9 ft / APD: 8.2 s / MWD: 302° (Met) WSPD: 12 kts / GST: 14 kts / WVHT: 7.9 ft / DPD: 13.0 s / WDIR: 340° / ATMP: 52.2° F / WTMP: 54.1° F. Tide: 1' falling to 0'.


  1. At least it looks like you had it mostly to yourself. We are overun with tourists at the moment. And appalling surf conditions, so that looks nice.

  2. There was a crowd on the main peak when I arrived, but it thinned as the sun and temperature dropped.

    Hope you get some good uncrowded waves soon, MF!
